Does God speak personally to you? Should others act on the basis of words that were written by
humans claiming to have heard voices?
If he wanted us to be able to clone He would have given us the

So, the first time man rubbed two sticks together he did it correctly, and made fire?
You are willing to live without heat in your house?
How about shoes? Does man have a shoe-making gene?
I feel that cloning is a sin that God is very upset about
So you do dare to presume what God knows and wants? My my.

"Glorifying God" apparently includes hindering the discoveries of others,
according to you. Since you're typing on a computer, you OBVIOUSLY
are not avoidant of technological benefits. Somehow you, Stephanie, think
yourself not a total hypocrite. Perhaps if a child or close kin
of yours is inflicted with illness, you will deny thwm medicine-- or is it okay
to do that, according to the God you dare to speak for?

We put electrodes in brains. One day
folks with eyes that are blind will actually see. I hope that it's okay for
the God you claim to speak for that this happens, or perhaps God wishes those
who've lost eyes to stay blind. I could care less, but I'm mindful that "unbelievers"
have even suffered the thermogenic sanctions, and physicians have been murdered
by hoodlums claiming advocacy for fetuses. People who speak as you do are often
dangerous creeps. Perhaps you are merely delusional-- how is it that YOU think
you've the knowledge of what God thinks? Ever hear of hubris?
