Ecologists and other scientists have long expressed concerns about the possible effect of releasing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into the environment, while others emphasize their possible environmental benefits. The broad consequences of national and international regulations underscore the policy and research communities’ need for current scientific information and for awareness of where informational gaps occur. There is a current emphasis on crop plants, but developments of genetically engineered fish, trees, and microbes may alter perspectives. (more…)
Scientists these days are using all of the understanding gained concerning cells and blending scientific theory with the skill to allow for progress in healthcare. This promising field is called Biotechnology. Biotechnology is the use of scientific methods to change and develop plants, animals, and microbes to improve their significance. (more…)
Standing Bear’s essay is a search for a lost dream, an ideal state that existed before the coming of the white Europeans.

Science has made numerous inventions over the past century that if people belonging to the Stone Age have a chance to reincarnate they would get mad. The most amazing and unbelievable of the scientific advancements is the ability of scientists to clone animals, plants and lately even human beings which is still in the process making it a reality. Though a human being has never been cloned the possibility is there biologically. Possibly in the future couples will be able to have a desired baby with all the positive qualities such as high intelligence, good looks, colored eyes, height and even a powerful immune system to resist fatal diseases increasing the average lifespan to even more than a hundred years. No doubt this is a very surprising and unbelievable technology but it can have various negative impacts on an average human being’s life. (more…)
Can science and spirituality go together?
Are you the kind who utterly believes in scientific theories or the one who believes more in acquiring divinity through religious practices or meditation and yoga? No matter what doctrine you follow or practice you should keep in mind that both are very different and cannot be merged together since science only believes in what can be seen or proven through logic while religion emphasizes on blind faith. Scientists do not argue about whether God exists or not they simply keep on inventing and discovering new things that are related as everything from plants, animals, insects and human beings evolved from time to time as the environment and surroundings changed.
