Do you think biological immortality is possible?
I personally think that we will find the cure within 50 years. Once the human genome project finishes mapping the entire human genome meaning that we are able to identify the function of each gene, we can pinpoint the exact cause of aging and find a cure for it.
I don't think the Human Genome Project was very honest. Since they wanted to avoid the touchy issue of racial differences (the number of distinctly human chromosomes has been downgraded to 30,000, and there's racial difference in at least 4,000 of those), they put the DNA of six different races in a blender, and just ignore the parts that show indistinct sequences. We need more honesty if we want to prolong human life by a direct study of what genes do, and it may be a different answer for each race just like different doses of medications sometimes have to be prescribed for each race.
