Help with bio how to and funny stuff

On how to write a bio. Does anyone have links to how that is done and some examples? I have the basics types of bio -- (a) those that focus on the facts, or what appear to be facts; (b) those that entertain. These are the extremes. Every bio will fall somewhere along a continuum between the two

Question:People with lactose intolerance are able to take products such as Lactaid that contain the lactase enzyme with their meals. These products can be taken in pill form. Considering the fact that the pill form of the enzyme would have to travel through the person's stomach, what special consideration would the producer of this product need to be concerned about?

Answers:Acidity. Typically lactase enzyme works in the duodenum of the small intestine which is actually somewhat basic if im not mistaken. Makers would have to ensure that the enzyme wouldn't denature and lose function in the acidity of the stomach.

Question:To grow the crops neccessary to make bio diesel feasible, it would require a HUGE amount of land development, destroying wildlife habitat in the process. Let's not forget that with each crop rotation, the nutrients are being taken from the ground and have to be replaced, which would require fertilizer to be added EVERY year. What about the pesticides that have to be applied to protect the growing crops every year? And what about the fact that there are MILLIONS of starving people who could benefit from food crops being planted instead of fuel alternatives. Any other thoughts? I am just curious as to what others think.

Answers:Good question. I neither support nor oppose bio fuels -- I'm waiting to see how it plays out in the market, and I'd like to see and immediate end to any and all of the subsidies, which distort the market's efficiency (especially now that our poor farmers are suddenly raking in the cash from all this). The starving children angle is a dead argument -- there is no choice of sending this bushel of corn to Africa or else to the ethanol plant. No one is starving because of a lack of agricultural capacity -- if we wanted to feed them all we could, but we don't -- not enough to kill African dictators and take over their governments and spend tens of billions in distribution. Starvation today results strictly from political factors and nothing else. I also don't care about fertilizer or pesticides, I'm not drinking ethanol, and and I'll trust farmers to know more about their business than I do. The only issue for me is whether it is economically productive once you factor in the pesticide and fertilizer and cost of nitrogen and use of land and use of diesel to fuel the tractors, etc etc. And that's an incredibly complex issue. It's so complex that I give little credence to any opinion or scholarly research about that -- it's too difficult a problem to fully analyze like that. There's only one supercomputer than can handle the complexities and work out an efficient solution, and that's the free market. I'd like to see it get its chance.

Question:1. It is an established scientific fact that life cannot originate from non-living matter (Law of Bio- genesis). 2. The chemical evolution of life is impossible. No scientist has ever advanced a testable procedure by which this could occur. The Miller-Urey experiment, still shown in many current textbooks, has been proven to be irrelevant. 3. Mendel's Laws of Genetics limit the variations in a species. Different combinations of genes are formed, but not different genes. Breeding experiments and common observations have also confirmed that genetic boundaries exist.

Answers:The law of biogenesis disproves evolution (as do all scientific laws). But trying to explain to an evolutionist that science invalidates his belief is like trying to explain to a smoker that cigarettes are unhealthy. It can be done, you may even get them to agree with you, but its largely without result in the addict's life. An evolutionist isn't a believer in evolution because of science, just like a smoker doesn't smoke for the health benefits (chances are evolutionists know precious little about science, if anything at all - consider "professor" Richard Dawkins, if you disagree). Evolutionism and smoking are both lifestyle choices, and those who choose them choose so because of the lifestyle they desire, not for scientific reasons.
