Ethics of Scientific Research

Susan Jacoby represents the atheist perspective in the forum On Faith. I like her approach to things, usually, she isn't afraid of pointing out the irrational (understatement alert!). In this post she does a good job in a brief post of discussing the ethics of embryonic stem cell research and scientific research in general. On Faith is interesting. Moderators ask a question every week and representatives from many faiths answer the question. Starhawk represents the Pagan viewpoint, by the way, and does so ably. There are several Christian commentators, and at least one from Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, etc. I'll have to admit the questions are pretty dumb, sometimes, but the commentators do their best and so often come up with thoughtful answers.
