Is science an ethics free zone? The question of ethnic or racial difference has proven itself an agent of evil for centuries. If someone can show me the way that the study of racial differences can’t be used as a tool of the most vile human inclinations and ultimately genocide, I’ll go along. Science has a soul (for want of a better word) and must do better for the sake of all of us.

There you are, Bert Chadick: I’ve altered your comment into one that is equivalent in its tone and connotative content.
Immediately cease the utilization of any substance or technology that ultimately derives from humanity’s use of fire, and perhaps then we will consider your request to similarly abandon things that could potentially be used in a way that violates your ethics.
Yet another person too stupid to grasp that ‘ethics’ doesn’t necessarily mean the rules you follow yourself. Or more probably, the rules you don’t follow yourself but insist other people ‘should’.
