Corbett is way over his head in the field of molecular biology

He is "busting" myths using the debunked claims by Seralini and Jeffrey Smith, without explicitly saying so and using a 14 year old who is also parroting these same claims as his intellectual back-up.

Corbett accused genetic engineering as being "imprecise," but fails to source this or explain why. This, of course, is because he made this up. He cherry-picked a specific peer reviewed journal about yields, but cited no papers or sources about the process of genetic engineering because they are bullshit. DNA recombination is extremely precise- accurate to the individual codons.

He did the typical anti-GMO fear-mongering about "inserting the genes from one species to another" like it is an abomination of nature, but this is a null argument because all organisms share genes. Humans share around 18% of their genome with lettuce.

rDNA research is tightly regulated in the US, much more so than Corbett led on.

In every anti-genetic engineering thread I get a few downvotes and/or accused of being a paid shill, but it doesn't change the facts. The government can alter the laws of society, but cannot manipulate the laws of nature. Not everything approved/claimed by government is a lie, especially regarding science, which is (and should be) apolitical and worldwide.

This is just the same anti-GMO alarmist bullshit, repackaged in a video and narrated in Corbett's whiny voice.

Hey what happened to my answers on HIV & AIDS? You couldn't muster up the courage to debate?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Good video on a rotten subject. I will never know how and why people accept this. We have also unknowingly been eating cloned chicken, for YEARS...

oh ya

BUMP!!

Thank you for posting this!!

There are some people here who think GMO is great, and that we are crazy. They even mock us. The only thing I don't agree with is number 1, I don't believe in government forcing businesses to label products, this should be done in a free market way.

Wake up...

the free market is as free as Monsanto is to gain the collusion of our government in granting them immunity in order to poison us...great idea but quite naïve.

The government will never force something that eats away their profits and control. GMO's are a direct infringement upon our lives and liberty, therefore the fact that government won't protect the very foundation of our founding principles is evident of a rogue and treasonous faction.

Huh?

As libertarians we want government out of our lives, except with this? You want the same government who is corrupt and sold out to Monsanto, to force business to label their food (which had nothing to do with what Monsanto did)? What we have here is another example of corporatism, and the best way to fight it is to remor those in office who sold out and to bribe money from Monsanto. Trying use government to fix this, not only make the libertarians and liberty movement look like hypocrites, but would do nothing. You want to know what you are eating, look for food that is already labeled organics and non GMO, or grow your own garden, and stop look to government for the solutions.

I see agreement here--

I didn't read The Pen that way--

I see some food companies trying to work for non-GMO; it's not totally broken, but Monsanto is VERY powerful--

and most people aren't going to be able to find non-GMO, unless they are willing to pay more--

the fact is that I read The Pen differently--

the 'government' is 'rogue', so it can't do anything anyway--

but 'free' markets have been choked to death by governments--

it's a hard situation--

I think you're shooting the messenger--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Yep

I agree fonzdrew.
