Narrative About Creation

An amazing new discovery. A new source for a generous supply of stem cells for medical purposes without death to embryos. The article is here.

Stem cells extracted from amniotic specimens that are normally discarded. Such good news, but what was more fascinating to me is that researchers put the cells into a print cartridge, installed that cartridge in a printer, and than the cells were “literally printed out onto sheets and grown into functioning tissue.” ( News Staff). Seeded onto sheets with the spray of an ink-jet printer.

A page with an encrypted message of the true story of creation, that when translated, developed, and fleshed out, forms sheets of new liver tissue, bone tissue, and skin tissue.

For those of us who love to write, and know the awesome power of the printed page, were we surprised?

A little, but (as Glenn Beck of CNN would say)...'Not so much.'
