    I already heard about this news, what terrifies me the most is the biotechnology itself.

    Just like AI research can lead to abuse and loss of control so can biotech lead to invention of all sorts of horrible viruses or loss of control over human existence.
    in regards to AI taking over the world which sounds like sci-fi, bio-tech is far more potent to destroy us.

    I wonder if this means that bacon can be served live.

    Like your moniker, it's a paradox that in efforts for immortality, we will eventually destroy ourselves in the process.

    That was fortuitous that there were scientists nearby when the pig died.

    Research or bacon, either way they won.

    Revived pig organs after death

    If pigs are so useful for medical experiments to save human life, why kill them to eat their meat, please?
    And why it is termed unpleasant if we call somebody a pig or swine, please?

    Regards

    Well the pigs were killed anyway in this experiment.

    And as for your second question i don't know the history or why it is an insult.

    The better we humans get at subduing nature, the more we invite her to be rid of us.

    I suspect the real reason Christians are opposed to scientific attempts at resurrection of the dead are because it would make their Jesus redundant.

    In my opinion.

    Because they taste delicious, and there are enough pigs to do both, so it is an "and" question, not an "or" question.

    Because many people consider themselves higher in rank than animals.

    It is Western culture to love dogs, but you can still insult someone by calling them a dog.

    In my opinion.

    They say Buddha died because he ate meat of a swine accidentally, please. Right?

    Wrong, he is alleged to have died from food poisoning from "tainted" pork meaning pork that was polluted or infected.

    Ordinary pork won't kill one any more than ordinary chicken will.

    Millions of people eat pork without dying.

    And people get food poisoning from other types of tainted meat such as tainted chicken or tainted beef or tainted fish.

    In my opinion.

    The quote mentioned that the pork was tainted. Give him a break.

    The quote mentioned that the pork was tainted, but there was no indication from his words that he understood the quote as he dropped the word tainted and claimed Buddha died when by accident "he ate meat of a swine".

    In my opinion.

    Getting hard on him for not using a word you consider necessary. In my opinion, we should give people the benefit of the doubt, not the other way around. No matter. He will answer your complaint himself, and we will see if you are right about him or not. Perhaps I'm jumping into a discussion where it's not necessary for me to jump in. My apologies.

    Back in the past old fallout caused skin blood bone changes to everything. Like cancers and every change you could list.

    Our brother evil personified in artificial thoughts only that he contrived as he can then acts accordingly falsely taught.....pigs had worms. Caused by bio changes.

    In the olden days meat was spit cooked or tossed on coals and eaten rare.

    Worms invaded the brain. Killed humans.

    No human which is actual theisms. No changes to anything by scientists either is pretty basic humans intelligence.

    Who knows what artificial thinking scientists are using as new artificial Theism...I will...I want....I will terms.

    I'm not sure why you saw me as "getting hard on him".

    He asked was his statement right and the correct answer to that is no. Nothing "hard" about it, unless you consider honesty as hardship perhaps? I don't know.

    Of course the most useful from that perspective are humans. No issue of cross-species comparability.
