I recently read an article that was very interesting indeed.

It's about how harvard researchers found a way to reverse the aging process in mice.

This brings up a few funny what if's in my opinion :)

What if science does find the cure for aging would you take it if this means you can live for hundreds or maybe thousands of years ?

 

Myself i think i would, just to see how humanity will advance over the centuries :)

The negative consequenses ofcourse is overcrowding  and the strain on recources, and what if they sell this cure to only the people who can afford it ?

 

One thing i thought was funny thinking about is, would religious people take it ?

Would'nt that defeat the purpose of a so called afterlife if you cant die ?  :)

And if they would'nt take the cure that would probably kill off religion forever as they would die and us atheists would live on :)

 

any thoughts ? :)

 

regards, jerry
