* Sept. 2017 Update -- And so it begins: The newest chapter in humanity's descent into depravity opens as scientists edit the genes of embryos to study early human development. It is a short distance to plumb the depths of wickedness from the heights of the humanities (the arts, science and medicine); just ask the Germans. So while the study of embryology is noble, it becomes barbaric when it sacrifices children. One day soon enough Kathy Niakan (the stem cell scientist leading this research at Britain's Francis Crick Institute) will meet the children she is experimenting on. This will not go well for her.
* Nov. 2016 Update: CRISPR gene-editing has been tested in a person for the first time. And remember our programs RSR Explains Extraordinary Cancer Antibody Treatment and there's more information at RSR Welcomes Back Molecular Biologist Kevin Anderson to talk about targeted antibody cancer treatment.
* With CRISPR the Future Has Changed: After getting news from the front from Jo Scott, Bob Enyart talks with Scott about this astounding technology that is both a wonderful tool and a cheap way to unleash unspeakable horror. CRISPR is named for part of a bacteria's defense system identified in 2007 that in 2013 was turned it into a tool for genetic engineering. Here at BEL & Real Science Radio, we've chatted with the inventor of the Gene Gun, Cornell geneticist Dr. John Sanford who is a young-earth creationist. And on Friday we're interviewing RSR's targeted antibodies expert (and young-earth creationist) on the latest extraordinary results curing Leukemia in patients with advanced stage cancer. So CRISPR is a technology that we will be following, for better and for worse. Already, researchers have used CRISPR to reverse mutations that cause blindness; they’ve stopped cancer cells from multiplying; and they’ve made cells impervious to the AIDS virus, HIV. And of course there are the genetic disorders that scientists will use CRISPR to fight, including Cystic Fibrosis, Down Syndrome, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Sickle-cell disease, and Tay-Sachs. But then there are the CRISPR horrors, making it easier to create human/animal hybrids and designer babies, and it is increasing the demand for living human embryos from fertility clinics to experiment on, and for harvested baby parts from abortion mills. And then there's the possible unintended disasters from genetic engineering gone awry of insects, bacteria, etc. And even the ill-intentioned applications of using CRISPR to create bioweapons including ethnically-targeted weapons such as those that terror groups like ISIS could use to target Jews.
* Bloomberg Tutorial on CRISPR: Viewer beware. This otherwise educational tuturial not surprisingly includes mention of tiny children as though they were nothing more than products to be harvested.
Today's Resource: Jurassic: Dinosaurs are Young. All of Them, with Trey Smith and Bob Enyart. As YouTube sensation Trey describes our dinosaur soft tissue video:
You will NEVER see Dinosaurs the same. A journey into the genetics of dinosaurs & absolute proof that dinosaurs are YOUNG and lived side-by-side with man.
Documentary by Trey Smith | Bob Enyart
Video includes interviews with:
Mark Armitage (Fired from Cal State for releasing dino genetic data proving dinos are young)
Dr Aaron Judkins (Man vs. Archaeology and Finding Noah)
Dr Walt Brown (HydroPlate Theory)
Dr David Menton (Anatomist from Answers in Genesis)
Belinda LaCoste (Owns 85,000 acre Colorado Dinosaur Rich Ranch)
Jack Horner — Jurassic Park Technical Advisor, a man who 30 yrs ago started the evolution add-on theory that dinosaurs turned into birds <—- which is disproven in this video.
Richard Dawkins close friend and media buddy — the Hard-Core Atheist Lawrence Krauss ..... Who gets slapped around badly, badly, badly with his own science by Bob Enyart in a debate. That alone is worth the watch is worth the watch!
