I thought a light subject of stem-cell research, and all the issues positive/negetive should be brought up; it is a timely subject.

For me, one only knows within themselves what the true answer is; not some religious directive, nor would it be in-the-name-of-science itself.

Deep subject; right off the dock into 18'; that might be the answer one answers, "It's over my head!". For me a sad analogy fits this controversy; I dive off not knowing the depth of my decision in the name of "yes" for my daughter, for loved ones, for future generations of mine and yours, and maybe for myself.

Our advancement as beings on this earth its astonishing. In human history, some in the name of religion, have decreed the earth as the center of the universe.....anything other would be heretic to suggest.

I will not deny another the possibility of sight, healing, comfort, ect. under any guise.

I do not care if this subject illicits zero response, or is locked/deleted. I have stated my beief to all, and will be judged accordingly.

I have no problem with stem cell research. I have a problem with having abortions to get the stem cells or growing embryos in pitri dishes to get the cells.

Slowhand,

First, very weird avatar, dude. Second, religion has zero imput in my opinion against stem cell research. I am aligned with the thinking of Wade, I do believe that life begins at conception, therefore, I am against creating life only to destroy (kill) it in the name of science. That is why I am also against abortion, not for religious beliefs, I have very few, but I just think it is wrong because it is murder. I live in a very black and white world with very little grey. So now you have my 2 cents! I guess we can expect this thread to be locked any day now, too!

I'm not against stem cell research fundamentally. I'm against the overpopulation and continued human condition that is fostered through advances in medical technologies at tremendous costs to society. Very tough to separate a common global sense of good from the individuals localized desire to live and experience the love that comes with life. Folks were sent adrift on ice bergs for a reason.

Write that down and read it again in 30 years.

Maybe I am lost on this, but isn't the debate about "Federal Funding" for this??

Good point, fishorgolf. It begs the question, "Do you go to visit a doctor when you get ill, fishwater?"

I'm aligned with you here. It would be wrong to introduce human life only to take it for its pieces.

I can agree that over-population can be a problem but we can't put people out on ice bergs. At least I don't think we can. grin

But is it ok to sell an embrio as a commodity? Though that is a differant subject but the question does apply here.

There are other forms of stem cells besides embryo stem cell.

Promising development on stem cell research has progressed from umbilical cord blood and bone marrow stem cells, I see no controversy on these candidates.

It was a question that was not directed at anyone but meant to point out the different standards human life is valued. Again I'm not saying anyone thinks this way or it is right or wrong but it could be part of the debate on morality.

Why is it ok to sell say an embrio or sperm for profit and have this as a huge market to make money off of. But then say we shouldnt use this product,thats the way it is treated in some ways, for research that could potentialy help the unfotunate to greatly improve there lifestyle. From pain to spinal cord issues to other ailments, the list long.

    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.  
    • Thanks to everyone who replied. Lots of good advice. I'll start with an electrician and go from there.
    • Is there some type of frame or carriage that bolt to machine?  Or do the extra wheels just "float" back there?
    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.
