and death shall have no dominion – well perhaps?

Yesterday evening Oxford University’s Scientific Society hosted a debate between Professor Colin Blakemore and Professor Aubrey De Grey regarding whether the defeat of ageing should be a priority. Professor Aubrey De Grey proposed while Professor Blakemore opposed the motion.
De Grey believes that the slowing down and the eventual defeat of ageing is both desirable and possible while others are sceptical to a greater or lesser degree.
Unfortunately I wasn’t present at the debate, however I understand that it will be posted on Youtube in the near future.
