Fear of mysterious technology

Genetically modified food. Microwave ovens. Cell phones.What do these technologies have in common?Many people are terrified of these technologies, due to the myths & legends surrounding them, the sketchy ways they were conceived, and/or their own ignorance of how they work.Let's start with genetically modified food.Genetic modification is scary stuff, at least to the average Joe.

"This isn't an argument. I disagree! ;) If I could switch between human time perception and the geological time perception you speak of, I would definitely be interested. I guess I wouldn't want to live that long if I experience time the…"
