Time magazine’s top ten science stories for 2007 include:
#1 — Stem cell breakthrough. It looks like we can now do everything from a person’s own skin cells; there is no medical need for research with embryonic stem cells. As pro-life advocates have been saying all along, therapies developed from a person’s own cells are far more promising than therapies developed from an embryo, because there is no longer the risk of an immune response to foreign tissue.
But of course, the pro-abortion people still say “embryonic stem cell research must continue.” But why?
#4 — Hundreds of new species. Biodiversity is a good thing: “And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” (Genesis 1:20 ESV)

Here’s one personal thought on their list: Some of their items were picked for their level of human interest rather than on whether or not any great “scientific discovery” was made. Take for example, #10: “Real life kryptonite.”
