    Default b-b-b-but life EVOLVED (magically) - there IS no creator

    Unless MAN is the creator -

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Scientists are expanding the genetic code of life, using man-made DNA to create a semi-synthetic strain of bacteria — and new research shows those altered microbes actually worked to produce proteins unlike those found in nature.

    It’s a step toward designer drug development.

    One of the first lessons in high school biology: All life is made up of four DNA building blocks known by the letters A, T, C and G. Paired together, they form DNA’s ladder-like rungs. Now there’s a new rung on that ladder.

    A team at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, expanded the genetic alphabet, creating two artificial DNA “letters” called X and Y. A few years ago, the researchers brewed up a type of E. coli bacteria commonly used for lab research that contained both natural DNA and this new artificial base pair — storing extra genetic information inside cells.

    The next challenge: Normal DNA contains the coding for cells to form proteins that do the work of life. Could cells carrying this weird genomic hybrid work the same way?

    Sure enough, the altered cells glowed green as they produced a fluorescent protein containing unnatural amino acids, researchers reported Wednesday in the journal Nature.

    “We can make proteins that are built of more things than they normally are,” explained Scripps chemist Floyd Romesberg, who leads the project.

    While programming the green germs offered evidence that the approach can work, eventually “we would like to get proteins that do new things,” he said.



    Cool stuff.

    That's just not manly.

    With that train of thought go get your transmission replaced by an accountant.

    no. this thread demonstrates how a creator is allowable if MAN is the creator.

    If the story was "god" created this 'life' as the scientists had, people would dismiss it.
