@Boredfree -
Today's Ticker is frightening to contemplate. Human life on earth is as amazing as it is fragile. Debate all you want about our origins; if we keep screwing around with our cells homo sapien sapien is going away. What replaces us (if anything) is an interesting mental flight of fancy, but also not what I want to witness.

"Go away" is extremely unlikely. Life as we know it exists because of a huge number of intertwined things that, when thought of chemically, are "buffering reactions." Your body has hundreds of them at a "macro" level and thousands or more at a "micro" level, all of which act to drive the specific thing toward a centroid which is "best."

Nature is full of them too. Our entire planet is inhabitable because of them. This is the big fallacy behind so-called "climate science" and similar, and it drove crazy crap before too - the premise that setting off a nuclear weapon would "ignite the atmosphere", for example. Well, it didn't, did it?

Shouldn't have someone considered that an insult orders of magnitude larger had occurred naturally in the past and the atmosphere was still here?
