Some interesting updates in the world of nanotechnology and molecular manufacturing.
Nano's Big Kick Coming Soon
Interesting blog post by Tihamer Toth-Fejel over at The Center For Responsible Nanotechnology blog:
So what is it that "Freitas, Merkle, and Moriarty" could succeed at next year? A five-year $3 million grant by the U.K. Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to perform a series of laboratory experiments designed to investigate the possibility of diamond mechanosynthesis (DMS).
Essentially, if such a breakthrough succeeds, it would blow open the doors to the age of molecular manufacturing. As this site has previously stated, the development of molecular manufacturing is nothing to take lightly, and it is certain to result in a global government.
Europeans More Open To Nanotech Than Americans
Who would lead such a global government? EurActiv.com provides one possibility:
I think this study fails to address the larger issue. Do people with "stronger religious beliefs" oppose technology? Do they refuse life saving medical treatments, avoid using cell phones and computers, or ride horses rather than drive automobiles? In some cases, yes. But in the majority of cases, no. So why then are people classified as holding "stronger religious beliefs" opposing the development of nanotechnology?
I would submit that it's not the development of nanotechnology that they oppose, but rather the unrestrained use of it. No technology is inherently evil, and nanotechnology and molecular manufacturing are no exception. However, technologies throughout history (especially recent history) have been used by sinful mankind to wage large-scale war, oppress individual liberty, and commit genocide on a mass scale.
The problem is not technological development. The problem is sin. The power of technology serves to amplify that sin. And the solution is not a change in public attitude. The solution is the one and only Savior, Jesus Christ.
Russia's Crash Nano Program
From Michael Berger at Nanowerk:
While the above article focuses on Russian investment in nanoscale sciences, without directly mentioning molecular manufacturing, you can be sure that Russia is one of many countries engaged in a race to develop the breakthrough technology. The stakes are simply too high.
The country which first develops molecular manufacturing will, if it wishes, have all the nations of the world for the taking. To my knowledge, the only man in history who turned down such an offer was Jesus Christ:
My guess is that next time the world won't be so lucky. The next person who is offered the world will give into Satan's temptation:
