    Funny you think science can do this kind of superhuman fantasy type of feat, but you think they cannot understand climate.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Nope.

    This is a quote from your article.

    "But creating a wholly synthetic organism would be a huge challenge. 'A lot of times people will say you’ll make an organism completely out of your unnatural DNA,' says Romesberg. 'That’s just not going to happen, because there are too many things that recognize DNA. It’s too integrated into every facet of a cell’s life.'”

    I say again, you haven't understood the article you linked.

    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    It's all good, it's foolish to think everyone has the same opinion.

    I believe in this forum I had already stated I was arrogant, or maybe that was another forum... Well I'll state it again I'm pretty damn arrogant in here and in "real life" as well.

    EDIT

    As for the phrasing:

    "rise as a glorious empire" Humanity becoming extremely powerful

    "Collectively" Everyone working together and pitching in to make an effort toward the goal of advance

    "Strongest species the world ha ever seen" Just like you said, I'm right to the very bone prideful in humanity and arrogant, I want us to be #1, no one else, I'm just very prideful in my species.

    funny they have even said they don't fully understand what controls climate.
    yet this has nothing to do with the topic. no i don't think they fully understand this as they just discovered they can do this.

    who said anything about superhuman fantasy stuff? you make an incorrect DNA mutation inject it into someone you have no idea what the outcome could be. more than likely it will kill them. if it doesn't kill them then it could cause some other kind of mutation that could possible spread.

    they have no idea what they are dealing with right now.

    Of course they don't have an idea right now, but they WILL in a very short time.

    Science as per the Oxford Dictionary:"The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment"

    They will study and experiment this in a systematic form (most likely the scientific method as always) and they will find the truth as it is according to the world we know.

    I never claimed "WHOLLY SYNTHETIC". I said, creating an organism USING ARTIFICIAL DNA.

    It is the same topic- or at least a closely related one . It has to if with scientific literacy. You seem to be running a deficit, BTW.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    They didn't create an organism. They changed one base pair out of millions on an existing organism. And, to date, they still don't fully understand the effects or possibilities inherent in what they've been able to achieve.

    Don't get me wrong, this is an intriguing discovery and thank you for bringing it to our attention.

    I just don't want us to make more out of it than it is. You guys talking about being super humans are coming across rather silly.
