Artificial life requires that it fits into the biological definition of life. You're thinking of artificial intelligence.

I think the implications of this, just like any other piece of new technology or science, can be both positive or negative. It simply remains to be seen. While the idea is certainly viable in many fields of social sciences, it's hard to say what can be done with the construction of a few cells. The medical implications of it are probably astounding, but outside of molecular and microcellular biology, it would be difficult to place the scope of this exact creation into something larger like solving world resource problems.

I think this article may interest those people who are in this thread; it is very similar to the point where science may povide a solution for makind's problems.

Vegetarian groups welcomed the news, saying there was “no ethical objection” if meat was not a piece of a dead animal.
I find this line highly dubious. Or am I just confusing them with the anti-GM lobby?

These are signs that the future holds infinite promise. Rejoice, all you who know.

Mons are here though

You know, this isn't really that astounding. And for all of you who are terrified that a bio chemical war will destroy us now that this cell has been created are wrong. Bio warfare could happen now and even before this time because of deadly viruses. The only reason no one would do it is because it would result in the destruction of ALL human life.
