In this episode of BioTalk, I spoke with chemistry and physics instructor, Dr. Stacy Trasancos. Always a pleasure connecting with someone I’ve only known virtually through email and Facebook. Stacy reminds us that it really doesn’t take any undercover investigating to find proof that abortion providers have been supplying scientists with aborted fetal body parts […]

Transhumanist ideas are often spread in notable science/tech journals, magazines and even some conferences.

What’s with society’s split personality when it comes to genetically modified organisms (GMOs)? Milk from a cloned cow is unnatural and unsafe, but injecting a human being with stem cells from their own (dead) clone is positive scientific progress?

Should Lance Armstrong be “celebrated as a pioneer in human enhancement“? In this episode, Rebecca Taylor and I talk about the transhumanist movement, which seems to be starting in the world of sports with performance enhancing drugs. Taylor makes a great point that I hadn’t thought of before about how we, as a culture, seem […]
