Read this article (http://whyfiles.org/008amber/molec_bio.html): a scientist claims he revived 30 million year old bacteria from bee gut in a piece of amber stone...
Not posted to make a point, but as interesting and astonishing reading..

. . .Within our lifetimes the scientists who do this type of research were to find ways to transcend all those barriers that keep them from producing an entire living organism like a Brontosaurus, Terradactyl or Tyrannosaurus Rex?
Incredible. . . . :amaz:

I'm a little gullable in some areas but I wouldn't be surprised if the scientist already have. It seems to me commercial technology is about ten years behind actual, controlled condition, technology. Sometimes even twenty years, especially military tech.

That's definitely true. I'm not all the surprised by this, mainly because it's just bacteria. Bacteria tend to be extremely simple organisms. Maybe this is a huge step, but it really doesn't seem all that big to me. I think the fact microbiologists have actually created their own bacteria out of amino acids is a little closer to "wow" and "scary" then them resurrecting 30 million year old bacteria.

Im just curious why these experiments are being done? Are the rewards of saying yes, its possible.. worth all the risks involved?!?!?
Like Kramer said on Seinfeld..
"Natures a mad scientist Jerry!"
