The Culture of Genes and T-shirts
America is filled with “jeans and t-shirt kind of guys and girls” simple and comfortably the normal fashion of our age. The cotton that was mass produced and prospered in the hands of slave laborers has blessed the closets of many Americans bond or free. Denim is a classic fabric from the 17th century till now it has been woven from cotton and made for everyone from the cowboy to the 21st century thug. Something is different about jeans and t-shirts today. Corporate America has long time feared that the planets resources would dry up and be utterly consumed for future generations. Research and science has been the focus of prevention regarding this potential crisis. Even space explorations thrive on this fear and popular thoughts of relocating planets have been taken into account. I believe people’s fear is present because of a lack of general understanding of human life and resource. People theorize on life’s absolutes. Yet, stake their own lives on speculations that have been documented by men more of prestige than over-all intellect and wisdom. All American cotton has been genetically modified and what is produced for the masses whether in cotton seed oil or clothing is something altogether different.
Did you know that stone washed jeans are that way in 2010 because they have genetically modified the fabric to look stone washed? I was coming up in the early 80’s when stone washed jeans was expensive. At least for my demographic, so we took our jeans and bleached them and even rubbed them up against rocks for the new look. I know funny! I was a kid and the things that kids do to fit in can be haunting at times. Biotechnology seems to be making more and more breakthroughs in the early 2000’s. Now I’m no scientist. Even though, I’m familiar with the basics of DNA for instance, the G to C and T to A “language…RNA molecules, amino acids, etc…” However, I believe I can explain to you biotech’s role in shaping the culture of future generations.
If you are an American then you have already consumed food that has been manipulated by a scientist. Meaning that what naturally was provided by God who I believe is Jesus both man and timeless deity due to the soundness of his doctrine has become in essence man made. Let’s not get into a religious debate, what man had to do before there were universities in place to guide our beliefs. Let’s simply think!
· Thought number one: If a man is born on this planet and all the resources and food was available, why don’t men simply seek after the source of the resource?
· Thought number two: If the food and resources given to man reproduce without end if left alone, why would man create a “terminator gene” to reverse the miracle?
· Thought number three: Knowing that everything in life reproduces after its own kind and naturally cycles into new life by process of season’s loss, why do men fear the loss of the planet. Better… why do men try to save the planet that has stood the test of time, but doesn’t rather seek to save himself who passes away in or out of season?
Now think again and really try to grasp why scientists seek to manipulate DNA of living things and try to improve on something that made them who they are? These next two chapters are going to break down the evil motives behind biotechnology. The manufacturing of new drugs and manipulation of food is just the tip of the iceberg. This chapter is not to break down facts, but to provoke you to think! What I’m going to break down to you will be shocking if you’re not prepared to come to the same conclusions I will discuss later. This is serious and vital to life. I believe that science has its place in the world. Research is important to knowing what we are made of and to treat our conditions better. When what is alive, however, becomes an experiment of the flawed and dying then it’s reasonable to say that what comes of it will also become flawed and die.
