  Micro-biologists, like NASA, can use whatever technical *terminology* 
  that they want to.
  Terminology make does no difference to dead specimens, 
  forensic scientists, blown-up rockets, and the FBI.
  The only thing that's really important in the whole situation is 
  that neither RNA or DNA  *TRIGGER* *MOTOR* or *GENERATOR* *ACTION*. 

  And that Biologists are still the world's leading 
  losers concerning computers.

  Since "Action" is only a *Biology* term in the sense  
  that the US Army and Mash are Biology terms.

  And "trigger" is only a Biology term in the sense
  that Psychologists, Roy Rogers, his restaraunts, and his 
  horse Trigger are Biology terms.

  And Motors and Generators are only Biology Terms
  in the sense that US Government Automobile Insurance and HMO 
  and Biology terms.

  The Forest and Trees analogy is a VERY old philosophy
  diversion, which is trees are looked at very closely
  for their leave action.

  So that whenever Intelligence variances 
  arise in DNA, and these situtions arise, 
  Chemists and Biologists can be told to 
  "Make like a tree, and leave".
