Bush Adviser: `Because STAR TREK Says So!’

`”Diana Schaub, a Loyola College professor and adviser to President [George W.] Bush, is convinced that cloning and embryonic stem cell research are evil. She says this belief was formed, in part, by watching STAR TREK,” reports Jason Song for the Baltimore Sun.

Schaub says that STAR TREK “left me receptive to the view that mortality is, if not precisely a good thing, then at least the necessary foundation of other very good things. There is something misguided about the attempt to overcome mortality.”‘
