The world might clamor, no not humans: God created life!
Favored movies, books, and in fact for many years now, cloning, and genetics manipulation in plants and humans, are used to create new species, medical discoveries and treatments. Dolly, one of the first actual cloning of an animal - that the world is privy to - made an uproar sending religious groups to their pulpits wagging holy writs and passing the baskets of salvation.
So, on what shelf are believers in creation putting life conceived in a lab and by Eves without Adams? Per the media, one man has conceived at least twice.
Now another cloning success made public, the cloning of Trakr, one of the 9-11 rescue dogs.
What does cloning do to abortion when it is a scientific fact that an unadulterated cell is capable of replicating a whole human, we now have creation without conception, and life is adulterated in a lab?
We don’t know how far cloning has extended to humans because we like to think that the entire world is under our religious rules, laws, life, and science.
No amount of ranting and raving from those who want to preserve the status quo of where life comes from, how it is made, and what happens when we die, makes a difference. Just as when it was discovered that the world was not flat at a time when it was a sacrilege and a source of terror, not just that we could drop of the face of the earth, but all hell had to be at the bottom and heaven on top. Yet, despite all the tizz, the world is round.
Who, what, where, when, and why clone? What does cloning do to humans? Are there human clones, where are they and how many? Do they have a soul? Do they go to heaven, hell, have a God and can they be saved? Could cloning become a right to continuance of life?
As for me, in my manger this Christmas is still the God I found several decades ago that saved my life. An infinite God not restricted to a race, religion, or class. He/She has commandments that I strive, to the best of my humanity, to live-by, and a life philosophy of ‘do unto to others as you want done unto you’. Church is a good fellowship not a saving grace.
Is the will of the people, spoken with their new elected and empowered mouthpieces, to have their greedy electorate turn their backs on healthcare reform?
We need healthcare now for all. Yes, despite those who have healthcare and do not want, for their convenience and proper healthcare, crowded hospitals, clinics and doctors offices because, what if they can’t get in to see their doctor or have a procedure? They want to be the death panels for others and spread “the what about me and mine”. God forbid they might have to wait or die because they can’t get healthcare because to many will be eligible for healthcare and not just die form lack of healthcare. They want others to die not them not theirs.
HEALTH CARE NOW, for all or no healthcare for greedy politicians opposed to healthcare only because the healthcare for profit industry are lining their pockets. Without the billions made by the healthcare industry we could have a clinic in every corner and a doctor for every patient.

Ok, so it makes some sense that food-porn might be the answer to gastro satisfaction sans calories, a look-ma-no-mouth. After all, porn has been the quintessential pleasure escape of the lonely, sick of the same old-same, fantasy escape for the sexually needy and addict, secretive-closet-doer and dreamer's paradise. And a sure cachink for those who publish it.
So now, we have food porn to induce a food-orgasmic experience. Will it be enough to look at pictures of food? Will it break us into doing the deed? Hand to mouth or face to plate? Can it be as satisfying as eating it?
Well, all is in the mind and getting from one place to another starts as a mind trip. Having and not having is a mind choice. Doing and not is instigated by desire but the master planner is our brain. A geographic, of any kind starts with a vision.
So where can food porners indulge in their food- gratification experience to get the biggest bang? It all depends on how much drooling; mulling and wolfing one wants to do.
Some attest (I agree) that one can have an orgasmic experience in the mind without anyone knowing but there are times when physical additives add to momentum and make the outcome more pronounced, satisfying and gratifying.
How, when and where can one get physical with food porn? And, what is the defining line between food and food sensuality?
