Forgive me for seeming to make an assumption of a connection between
stem-cell research and DNA genetical research. It cannot be denied however
that their are at least to schools of `thought` on evolution. Or
Darwinism... History began about 5600 years ago. The fossil records are a
fraud. Man never walked on the moon. The earth is flat. What do you say
to these perplex? I say leave our DNA studies alone.
