Putting all morality issues aside, and just putting the level of effectiveness on the table: Humans make mistakes, so if you are being taught by an instructor on the correct weaponry usage, there's still a chance of error. It's like spreading rumors, all in the memory. Then you have the other techni...

Haha, you fight fiercely. But is it better to verbally teach a child the meaning of the F word or to perform an operation on his/her brain to make them remember what that word means? I would so much rather be taught how to use an AK-47 like an elite and forget it later on, than to have the method im...

The way I see it, training a dog to perform various actions is like teaching someone how to do certain duties. That's external involvement. However, fixing up someone's brain to do things right would be internal involvement. You would actually be going into someone else's body to correct things. Dog...

Well, I'm not sure about meiosis, but during the G1 phase of the cell cycle, cells pass through a checkpoint and the signals that the cell receives from its surrounding environment will cause a healthy, normal cell to either enter the G0 phase or into normal mitosis. Mutated cells often have a defec...

A problem in classifying a newly discovered organism is in determining the specific characteristics that actually distinguish it from all other types of organisms. Arguments between scientists often erupt over whether a certain trait is important or not. Some would rather define new species based on...
