Catholic Church officials said Friday that the recently created first synthetic cell could be a positive development if correctly used, but warned scientists that only God can create life.
So, what, when scientists do actually "create life" then will the Catholics start worshipping them? That is a damn stupid line to draw in the sand for the Catholic church for it is a TESTABLE claim for which they will very obviously be on the wrong side.
Heh! Sperm cells are living organisms too! I've already produced more living organisms in my life than all the female characters in the Bible ever have! I'm more worthy of worship than Eve, Mary and Loretta!
Didn't god allow these scientists to be able to create life? This is the thing that always gets me. god created these men, god created science, god created the scientist to be able to create synthetic bacteria...
