"The environment provided for us by this higher force will determine what we do."<quoted text>
"beyond our abilities"? You mean now or forever? Only a intellectually defeated person would say, "beyond our abilities", so let's forget about it. We would still be living in trees if we thought like you.
Do we have a cure for that?
No, it is beyond our abilities, so we quit looking.
What the hell are you a tech on?
Have you figured out how to feed all those you cured, will cure, and their offspring? Are you willing to lower your standard of living to do those things. Are you eager to compete with all of them for resources?
Divest yourself of what wealth you have now and give it to science so they can perform these miracles. Show us the strength of your convictions.
