Religious 'moralists' who would condemn what I do...
...as a geneticist, citing that I shouldn't be "playing God", and then acting like this is a view that's worth taking any note of at all.

I don't condemn you for "playing Thor" every time you go to hang a new painting of Jesus with your handy hammer, and you'd think it was ridiculous for someone holding such a belief to impose their belief upon you. Well, to me, your belief is equally as preposterous as theirs, if not more so, as at least the Norse had a rather shallower understanding of the nature of the universe back then.

Get with the millennium.

And, as a bioethicist...
... I also have a bone to pick with the religious crowd.

Believing in an invisible magic skyman is not an adequate substitute for rigourous analysis.

Didn't someone on the board write a great line about
how people who have imaginary friends as adults get locked up, but religious people don't?
