Do you think this is a breach of some sacred boundary of sorts? I agree it seems strange and scary because we don't know the outcome. I'm frightened by the posible neferious applications of any powerfull science. Is it true that this science could lead to something just as great as it could evil?

Atomic energy has been used to do great harm, but used safely, it can be a great power source. What about nuclear medicine? Should we really try to shut down scientific learning in areas that have potential for harm or should we rationally examin the risks and benifits and regulate the activity accordingly?
I guess pandoras box should never be opened, but how will we know when weve found it?
