Just want to point out that the conspiracy theorists in regard to ‘Lizard People’ may have been onto something if this research leads to gene editing or such. I’m not protesting or taking such too seriously, of course. I, for one, will highly respect and fear our new anti-aging reptilian overlords and will even consider spending five minutes to see if Geico’s gecko really can save me money on my auto insurance.
These amphibians don’t contract the various diseases that we humans are subjected to.
Somebody is going to have to add the word nobody in this study or article even cares about.
There it was said. Now STOP LYING
If entropy is the mic drop you think it is, why does a fetus continue to develop, mature, become more complex up through adolescence?
Very good point. Entropy is , of course an undeniable characteristic of our universe, but it needs to be seen in terms of a closed environment. In any given closed environment, entropy takes it toll. Take the earth, for example. entropy should have killed off life a long time ago, but outside of this “closed” (emphasis on quotes) environment is an outside provider of energy known as the sun, which provides energy and order.
However, if you then consider Earth and the Sun together within the context of a closed environment, Entropy is still taking it’s course. Luckily for us, it doesn’t seem to be in too much of a hurry.
Mark, just so you know, I wrote a comment supporting you in terms of entropy and outside sources of energy and order but this site marked it as “awaiting moderation approval” before finally vanishing without explanation. There was no profanity in my post. There was no insult in my post.
Perhaps it is wise to move on, and not throw your pearls before swine.
Jonathan, I can you see your reply to Mark.
That’s my anti-aging strategy
Turtle blood for everyone.
From deep with in his lair, Algore reveals his plan.
“The problem with Social Security is, too many people live too long after they retire. If we gene-splice some tortoise DNA into these geezers, they can work until their 150. We could double the money going into the Social Security lock box in a couple of years.”
“Will this adversely affect the humans?”
“Well, they’ll move at about 1/20th of normal speed, but, that won’t be a problem.”
Best not talk out loud often re: gene splicing with tortoise for humans. AI is listening.
The photo of Maxine Waters at the top of this article threw me off a bit.
I thought this was about The Lizard People overlords in CONgress.
It’s also apparent that birds don’t “age” as we define it, either. After they reach adulthood, it’s impossible for researchers to guess their age unless they’ve been banded. With some exceptions (there are always exceptions) birds’ average lifespans are defined by the inherent risk in their lifestyle, which is usually quite high. For instance if there’s a 10% risk of death in a given population per year from causes of death such as accidents, disease and predators, then 90% will make it 1 year, 81% for 2 years, 72.9% for 3 years, etc. , so that after 10 years, 34.9% of them will still be alive. if you extend that out to 20 years, then 12.15% can be expected to still be living, and at 30 years the number would decrease to 4.15%.
No surprise why humans age the way they do – for many people there highest aspiration is to get a handicapped placard. At the age of 16, 99% of humans decide they want to be put on a regimen of blood pressure and diabetes pills. The Earth belongs to the Elephant, the Dolphin, the Heron. The weak and inferior human race shall pass into the oblivion of the geological record soon.
*their…not sure if this was a master class example of getting closer to the handicap placard mentioned. Well played sir, well played.

I aged reading this useless thread
*spreading arms wide as if upon a cross* Sorry to hear that Jesus, but did you age THIS much?
The real question you should be asking yourself is why does it bother you what other people think about Christ?
