    Death will always be a part of the human experience, regardless of the advances made in medical science. Entropy always wins.

    According to Genesis Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden not because of their sin but to keep them from taking from the Tree of Life and living corporally forever.

    You know, I just want you to know that it's okay to feel good about stuff and not "play god." Aren't you excited at the prospect of being able to live as long as you want? I sure as hell am.

    A 2000 year old desert nomad myth about creation has nothing to do with modern science. You guys can die if you want to, but I'm going to live forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahahahahahahahaaaaa!!!!!:laugh:

    Yup. And?

    Even if it all is true, we have minds to continue to improve our circumstances and our futures. I approve of this type of scientific research. It would be exciting to me to live for such a long period. Like Ben Franklin I would like to wake up about every 50 years or so to see how it all turns out....

    Would you expect it to be written by a duck?

    Actually, a longer life span might lead us to, finally, adopt the long view regarding the consequences of our actions. Given human nature, I doubt it though.
