Question
Χριστός ἀνέστη
How can we know who in science is doing moral or immoral research? How can we judge if a scientific reserach is morally ok or not?
I understand that morality is so much more than just following certain rules (it is about love). I don't even know whom I can trust.

Answer
Peace

   
Science is powerful. It has generated the knowledge that allows us to call a friend halfway around the world with a cell phone, vaccinate a baby against polio,and build air planes.

So, when is scientific inquiry moral?
     Here's good article to answer your question.

I am having problems with my pc, so I am writing from a public library, so my time is limited. I can follow-up on this if you write again.

Expertise

I am willing to attempt to answer any question. If I donít know the answer, I will look-up or pass the question on to friends for feed back. Beside Catholicism (especially the social/moral and the Eastern rites), I am well read on Mormonism and so-called Modern Christian Fundamentalism. Also I study Franciscan History as means of growing in my lay Franciscan calling to holiness in Christ.
