I think I read somewhere about a theory that the dinosaurs induced climate change through their over-consumption of vegetation, and their resulting production of methane.



A small herd of dinosaurs could power a city with diono-farts.

Are we just one instance of an instant from an infinite number of monkeys on typewriters with an infinite amount of time?



I really don't think it would take very long for monkeys to start producing quality literature on typewriters.

Surely after a few millennia the monkeys would actually learn.

Will the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta keep this pathogen? Seems like something they would do.




The purpose of creating this pathogen... according to those creating it....is to enable the creation of vaccines to counter it. I think I covered that point in my OP.

It's an entirely false argument that the ethical scientific community is already taking them to task on.

In direct answer to your question though, It seems they would keep it. There wouldn't be any point in creating it if they didn't.

The question then becomes: What is the REAL reason for creating it...?

From the article, I get the impression the actual work will be done in Rotterdam and Tokyo.

So ...meh ... as long as it's NIMBY

Indeed this is now the real question.
