The Death Evolution

Death has been on everyone’s mind at one time or another… It’s unavoidable…
Some are fascinated by death; mainly  the possibility of better afterlife. Some, or the great majority of people, are frightened by it. It seems the unknown of after-death is one of the main factors causing many to tremble…

However, it turns out that Craig Venter, the pioneer of  the human genome project and the supposed creator of artificial life, turned his attention and efforts toward decoding death… here

It seems obvious Venter believes that death is be caused by genetics; some genetic mutations that could be fixed and we could live forever, otherwise he wouldn’t be digging in the genome looking to fix the death code…

As a Darwinist and atheist, Venter’s beliefs are probably similar to those of Dawkins/Coynes/Grours/Felsentseins crowed, and the like. The standard model is that life created itself spontaneously (spontaneous matter wanted is the theme of my next OP) and then through billions of years of trial and error of random, unguided processes all 10 billion of species on Earth developed…

However, not many people, including Venter, talk about why, after their great success in creating life, natural, random processes developed death…

Does death have an evolutionary advantage over life that involves the possibility of reproduction and the passing on genes??? This idea seems funky to me just like the whole evolutionary nonsense…

The religious have their own way of explaining death…The great majority believe that Adam and Eve’s sin led to death…Whether their sin led to some kind of a genetic change in the genome that causes death, is unclear…

Personally, I don’t believe death is a genetic thing… though I have to admit that one bible passage makes me puzzled:

Gen 3:22

“Then the  God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand rand take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever”.

What do you think?

Can death be decoded?

Will Craig Venter, or other scientists, ever be able to find the code of life?

Is death an evolutionary invention? If yes, why?

    walto: It looks to me like those are not cancer specialists, but a bunch of gastrointestinal surgeons from a Chinese hospital. And it’s not a peer-reviewed study, as far as I can tell.

    I bought some screws… One broke when I tried to screw them into my deck… They were made in China.
    I guess everything from China is just as good…

    Thak yu Darvin for walto… he a bum…

    J-Mac: Please remind me who said that??? I didn’t…so that makes you what?

    Dr. Thomas Seyfried said it if ilanitedave’s linked article is to be believed.

    I’m not sure what that makes me. Enlighten me.
