    Bioethics, which is the study of value judgments pertaining to human conduct in the area of biology and includes those related to the practice of medicine, has been an important aspect of all areas in the scientific field (Bernstein, Maurice, M.D.). It is one of the factors that says whether or not certain scientific research can go on, and if it can, under which rules and regulations it must abide by. One of the most recent and controversial issues facing our society today is the idea of cloning. On February 23, 1997, Ian Wilmut, a Scottish scienti

    Cell Theory

    The development of cell theory The cell theory is the basic understanding of cells. The cell theory demonstrates that “all organisms are composed of similar units of organization, called cells” (Schwann 1839). This concept of the cell theory has been derived from two scientists Matthias Schleiden and Theodor Schwann, in 1839. Since that time the concept of the cell theory had been the primary foundation of biology, to this day. From the basic ideas of Schwann and Schleiden, other scientist have done further research and analyzed more to come up with more theory’s and explanations. Th

    What most people do not understand before taking a political stand for or against the possibility of cloning is that there are several different types of cloning that scientists have dabbled in over the years. There is recombinant DNA cloning, reproductive cloning, and therapeutic cloning. Each of these different techniques has their own place in science, and will be further investigated later on.

The fact that evolution occurs became accepted by the scientific community and the general public in his lifetime, while his theory of natural selection came to be widely seen as the primary explanation of the process of evolution in the 1930s,[1] and now forms the basis of modern evolutionary theory.

    Since the beginning of man’s existence, man has often wondered about the origin of life and life in general. Over the years, the world’s best biologists and naturalists have attempted to answer this riddle (one of the most difficult riddles known to man), but to no avail (at least scientifically). Every time that one of these scientists encountered a question which they could not answer, they simply relied on the faithful explanation of “God’s will.” And to argue the slightest bit with this familiar explanation would result in eternal damnation.
