An example of eco-fundamentalist rhetoric I encountered on one of the green
lists I monitor (in response to the recent news item about the development of
a virulent transgenic mouse pathogen) recently:
> What we blithely refer to as science has for years been in the realm of
> what we once referred to as science fiction. Now it is entering the
> arena of the Grade B movie, Ed Wood would have a field day with all of
> this transgenic mutant garbage emerging from laboratories all over the
> It is up to us to make our voices heard so that we can tell government
> and scientists, "Enough! It is time to stop. The Earth and life are
> sacred, not fodder for experimentation." We must further reach out to
> others and educate them so that they too will add their voices to the
> resounding, "No!"
> Resistance IS fertile and we must resist!!
> No compromise in defense of Mother Earth,
Just a tidbit to give a flavor for what;s simmering among folks with a
different worldview from ours.

"We never stop investigating. We are never satisfied that we know
enough to get by. Every question we answer leads on to another
question. This has become the greatest survival trick of our species."
