Dr. Avi Ben-Abraham, president of the American Cryogenics Society, told
an audience in Washington, D.C., that several high-ranking Roman
Catholic Church leaders support human embryo cloning, despite the
Church's public stance against such research. According to Ben-Abraham,
those Church leaders hope to reproduce Jesus Christ from DNA fibers
found on the Shroud of Turin.

The Morton Downey show will concern itself with Cryonics. The main guest
will be Dr. Avi Ben-Abraham, a "certified genius" (whatever that means)
who was the youngest surgeon ever to perform open-heart surgery (at the
age of 16) and who has been nominated for a Nobel Prize (in medicine, I
assume). He is also Director of the American Cryonics Society.
Nanotechnology will be mentioned in defense of the technical feasibility
of cryonics. I assume that the academic level of the discussion will not
average highly. Still, it will be one of the first "mass media"
presentations where nanotechnology is even mentioned.
