I can just imagine the announcement of the science breakthroughs, "today we discovered a cure for canine type 1 diatebes and are very proud to say it's result was succesful. In other news, we saw a sea slug rip off it's own wang in order to give DP to it's woman which allowed his new cock to pound her normally while a perfectly imitated  fully functioning dick rammed her up the butthole."

Curing type 1 diabetes is a huge break through in my opinion.

wait...
by "detach it's penis, grow a new one, and use it to mate", do you mean use the old one or the new one?

TL;DR: A black hole passed 17,100 miles of the earth detaching its logical bacteria that cured dog diabetes and thus started killing the coral reefs.

"Hey, Jim! You wanna start working on that flying car today? Or how about a cure for cancer?"
"No, Karen. We're studying sea slug penises."
"...What?"
"This is science, Karen. We have to investigate what the people want to know. We must find the true answers behind life's many phenomenon. So what are we going to study?"
"..."
"Say it with me, Karen. Sea. Slug. Penises."

They're making a hangover pill. It contains enzymes which helps breaking down the alcohol and basically serves as a second liver. HAIL FOR SCIENCE!

This is more of a Philosophical question than a Scientific, but I guess it's relevant enough thanks to Psychology and Physics..   
   
Who has heard of the Doctrine know as "Determinism"? It's essentially the opposite of free-will, because it states (paraphrasing) that all things in the Universe are cause and effect. Go WAY back and apply this idea to the Big Bang→Present day, and you get a Universe that is basically just a huge, infinitely-complex domino effect. Basically making "fate" true.   
Ex- Assume you could preform an experiment where you could replicate EVERY SINGLE FACTOR in a finite area. If Determinism is correct, then it would play out 100% the same, every single time.   
   
Physicists often argue, though, that the Quantum-Tunneling Phenomenon adds a certain randomness to the equation, which calls into question causality/the whole Doctrine/etc. Basically making our world more "chance" dependent.   
Ex- Assume the same experiment, however, now considering the Q.T.P. there could be potentially random outcomes every time. Sometimes outcomes would be the same, sometimes they would be completely different.   
(There's also the idea that it's a combination of both, etc.)   
   
Now what I want to know is this: Do we actually have free-will? I've been kind of obsessed with this idea for about a month now. I find it disturbing to think that everything we do is entirely dependent on something else, or just the "random chance" of the Universe. In my mind, this calls into question Individuality, why we should even care about life at all, I'm Christian too so this Doctrine makes it appear that God is choosing who goes to hell and who goes to Heaven (so is He evil now or what?). It's all very unsettling to me and I'm curious as to what Theories (if any) might disagree with the above. They can involve Divine Intervention or whatever too if you like. No real limits, I'm open for discussion.   
   
I hope to learn something new from this, thanks.
