WASHINGTON — "The only people who can bring about miracles, who can really make the lame walk, are scientists," proclaimed James Watson, 75, the renowned Nobel Laureate, who, with Francis Crick, discovered the structure of DNA.
Given his role in history, it’s not surprising that Watson has plenty to say regarding genes, biology and all the newest gene-based medical discoveries. He can talk at length about the quest for drugs to stop binge eating, eradicate blindness caused by diabetes and to enhance memory. But these days, Watson is equally outspoken about the growing power of organized religion.
