1. Btw
Jurassic park is the most unrealistic characterization of scientists I have ever seen. I have never met anyone who does things because it's "fun" or because they can. He seems to think that all geneticists are wanna be frankensteins. They do what they do to learn and help people. Everybook I have ever read of his has this unethical scientist premise. Honestly he is little better than Beck in terms of his bigotry.
