7 i do not think that science will ever be able to extend the life span significantly, because we will never be able to overcome the problem of telomeres (bits at the ends of chromosomes) being lost each time a cell divides. Altering DNA is not the answer and that will also have vast ethical implications. 2006-03-19 13:19:11
15 I believe it could be possible, but we all have a time of death set out for us, and when that time is up, nothing can fight against that and win i.e. when God decides it's our time 'to go' then it's just our time to go, and nothing can change that. 2006-03-21 04:20:37

42 Extending life to about 100 is fine. After that, it is useless. Either way we are all destined to die because of sin. Whatever man tries to do to defy God, it may only seem to work for a while. But, eternity after death is so much more important than life on earth. The Bible says that instead of investing in this material life, we ought to invest in eternal life (life after death, not eternal life on earth). It also says that one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Whether people believe it or not, want it or not, it WILL happen. The Bible is true and has proved itself countless of times, one of them being lasting through the ages without fault. So, my point is, God has put us on this Earth for a reason, to glorify him, not ourselves. This is the secret to true joy and happiness, not living forever. 2006-03-28 23:10:18
