you know – i’m not actually against genetic engineering per se. i think as a technology it has a lot of potential for good and ill blah, blah, blah. but when you see headlines that involve goats and spiders, you just have to wonder. it’s as if this was orchestrated to freak-out john and jane ‘q’ public. :

“Canadian scientists have implanted spider genes in a herd of goats, resulting in the production of silky strands in goat milk that can be used for sutures and other applications.”

“Both the U.S. and Canadian military have expressed interest in using it for making anti-ballistic defense systems, he said.”
