  1. One molecule of thermostable DNA-polymerase can incorporate about 10^5 nucleotides into DNA during routine polymerase chain reaction. And the only limiting factor here is that 92-95°C is too high even for thermostable enzyme. Taq-polymerase is very cheap, so reaction is optimized for speed, not for the effectiveness per molecule. Anyway, mass production of nucleic acids enantiomers is possible even with chemical synthesis. Proteins (especially big ones, and those needed post-translational modification) are muck harder to be made. I think it is something like reiterated solving of an "chicken

  2. Politicians taking bribes or otherwise being unduly influenced by money is a real problem. Antisemitism is a real problem as well. It seems to me Omar's comments are accurate to a degree regarding lobbyist while also skirting the line on antisemitism.

We see it used in politics all the time.For example politicians will often accurately cite crime statistics in Chicago when discussing crime in the U.S. to inappropriately characterize specific groups of people or exaggerate d

  4. I’ve never stopped believing in God. His effect still remains. You know what good is, if humans were really good, do you think they’d ever die? All humans are truly evil beings because all humans die someday. You know that the wages of sin is death. Humans are all obviously sin. The fact is out. If there’s no God, do you really believe that humans and their temporary existences are the most superior beings available? That humans keep dying, cycle after cycle, generation after generation and yet something keeps existence running smoothly. God is the one who has been alive since the beginn
