These elements all point in one way or another towards an involvement with the religious bel

Genetic engineering has been one of the most controversial ethical issues since 1997; when Dolly the first successfully cloned sheep was announced. Dolly has redefined the meaning of identical twin; not only does she look exactly like her mother she also has the same genetic make up. This experiment was not only impossible but unthinkable.

progressivism Progressivism implies a philosophy which welcomes innovations and reforms in the political, economic, and social order. The Progressive movement, 1901 to 1917, was ultimately the triumph of conservatism rather than a victory for liberalism.
