Should We Bring Back Endangered Animals?
on June 1, 2022
Is it possible to reverse mankind’s greatest catastrophic casualty? Can we bring back extinct animals and endangered species directly affected by manmade disasters, such as climate change and pollution, and salvage any positive resemblance for biodiversity in the future? A warning for a possible “Jurassic Park” disaster in the future.
In this episode, Alex and Jason revisit some scientific and ethical aspects of genetic engineering and its by-product, genetically modified organisms for the prospects of scientific renaissance. Science can actually create positive change in our current state of evolution, moreover, we can reverse some major damages we’ve done against the natural world. Mass extinctions are off the charts since mankind began to industrialize, and then globalized, human activities. Reaching every nook and cranny we have caused the abrupt demise of countless species. Restoring the balance and former glory of nature is our responsibility of stewards of Creation.
A recent YouGov study suggests that a lot of people support the current preservation of endangered animals, but what about extinct ones? We believe that everyone has the right to have a chance and see the beauty of nature what it was before. We should set aside, let loose the irrational fears and realize that science can actually help make our world, our mother nature, a better place than today. We should owe up to our own mistakes. We are responsible for more animal extinction than all of mother nature’s natural selection.
In the end, we must accept the inevitability of life and death. In many ways life finds a way to push and move forward. Evolution is a constant process of refining life closer to perfection, closer to Creational truths beholden in the very essence of nature. Nurturing and positive growth. We can only imagine the possibilities if all animals were still, somehow, alive today. Affecting our ecosystem, but we have the power to make imagination into reality. Let’s join Alex and Jason as they discuss the possibilities of life.
0:59- Welcome to Jurassic Park! Alex shares his epiphany as he found an amber in his backyard.
1:25- According to a recent YouGov survey, half (50%) of the respondents want to bring back certain extinct animals, particularly giant turtles once dwelled in the Galapagos Islands.
1:42- There are some people wishful for any prospects of salvation for current endangered species. Our wildlife has been decreasing dramatically during the last three decades.
2:13- No one, in their right minds, can possibly revive ancient/ prehistoric animals.
2:31- Majority of Dinosaurs are actually herbivores. Sixty-five percent of known fossilized specimens are herbivores and less than the remaining percentage are carnivorous theropod dinosaurs.
3:32- It’s about trusting science. The public wants to gain confidence that all this process won’t go wrong. Ensuring no problems can get out of control is the important validation for public support in science.
3:50- People have bottomless curiosity for science. We think we can do it all and ultimately conquer nature.
4:41- Alex on the issues of genetic cloning.
5:23- Alex criticizes human ingenuity. We have a banal perspective in scientific discovery where some human tendencies chose detrimental outcomes over human security.
5:50- The paradox of ethical science. There should be no pathological antagonism against good intended scientific breakthroughs.
6:11- There should be a chance for every person to experience and witness the full wonder of mother nature.
6:20- Jason on the false perception of pop-cultural conditioning in the animal kingdom.
6:37- We must simply accept that some people are not used to the natural co-existence of man and animals.
6:59- Alex contemplates the “What ifs” of life reanimating machines. It could be useful to sustain the survival of mankind in the event of a nuclear apocalypse.
7:34- There are some remaining positive uses for reanimating machines. The moral dilemma can be easily justified by the ethical necessity of saving human life.
8:29- We should be open to exploring other avenues to enhance the survival of the human race in the future. Alex vindicates his skepticism by having valid, and sound arguments against the use of ethical science.
9:26- Transplanting someone else’s body affects who you are.
9:54- We have done bad things in hindsight for the sake of our own welfare.
10:09- Alex and Jason return to the paradox of rationalism. How come there are many non-FDA approved drugs circulating in various pharmaceutical industries yet we find a hard time formulating vaccines off the rails?
10:52- Almost all species that have ever existed on planet Earth have gone extinct. It’s only a matter of time before humanity slips out.
11:05- We need to embrace the inevitability of mortality. To look at the obvious and accept that humans can come to an end. We all have a certain lifespan.
11:40- Regardless, life finds a way.
12:10- Alex revisits the dogmatic dilemma. It should be the first principle that dogma should be out of the way in human progress.
12:57- Jason makes a succinct remark on the flaws of philosophy of sciences. We cannot remove ourselves from Creation itself. We cannot divorce ourselves from nature as we can from nature in the very essence of humanity.
13:09- Humanity cannot provide all the solutions. In fact as the catalyst of Creation we afford our own problems.
13:47- Whether we deny it or not we already have fears of giant grumbling creatures in our own backyards. Due to excessive urbanization we have blurred the lines of natural habitats for wildlife and our own sphere of civilizations. No one is concerned about giant animals running amok as we steal their natural homes.
14:38- Different species of bears had different animal instincts.
15:00- What is the difference between a dinosaur and a grizzly bear? If other flourishing species were perceived as a threat should they be also targets for human extermination?
15:33- We need to ungrip the irrational fears and realize that science can actually help make our world, our mother nature, a better place than today.
16:00- Just imagine the possibilities if all animals were still, somehow, alive today. Affecting our ecosystem. Restoring the balance and former glory of nature.
16:14- We should owe up to our own mistakes. We are responsible for more animal extinction than all of mother nature’s natural selection.
16:36- We will come back for more science.
