    I’d like to think this would be used to correct genetic desease like Muscular Dystrophy but sadly making super soldiers is no doubt in the plan.

    Lynne, no doubt you're probably right......the video I posted above is an example of just that,
    One of the ideas of these spider gene experiments is to developed a form of better bullet proof material, DARPA already has a very strong interest in this.... Reminds me of the mid 80's with the perfluorocarbon experiments and breathing liquid oxygen, (had an "aqaintance" who was very knowledgeable on this) only problem was in the early stages every one who tried it would end up with pneumonia.... Don't know if it was ever perfected or not.

    Cool piece of trivia though,... The scene in the abyss where the rat was submerged in and started breathing the liquid was actually real and was taken directly from that technology.

    This is awful and scientists should not be playing god. However once Pandora’s box was opened you know they’re going to do it. I fear we are doomed.

    Lynne, here's a video of the scene I mentioned previously, got curious and thought it would be out now since this happened in the 80's....also found that this tech. is now use for premature babies, so sometimes good does come from these experiments.

    The video was not available.
    I’m always looking for good news.
