      Jurassic Park says that if you take the DNA of a dinosaur, and put it into an egg and let it grow, it will pop out a dinosaur.

      In theory, there is nothing wrong with this. However, in practice, it is slightly more complicated. We don’t fully understand what is necessary for life.

      It’s like putting petrol in a car and expecting to be able to drive it, but you need the key to start it first.
