Is there a gene for vivid imaginations?

I only ask because of some of the stuff that’s been suggested in relation to the debates surrounding embryo research that’re currently going on in the UK parliament – of which this example has to be one of the best I’ve seen for a long time.

WARNING: I suppose that I ought to add a warning that the link takes you to (a) a Rupert Murdoch paper (urgh!), and (b) one of his (even) less highbrow ones at that, so if you don’t want it in your browsing history at work, wait until you get home (or vice versa).  I’d also like to point out that I don’t make a habit of browsing The Sun‘s website – I just had the link pointed out to me.

I wonder if I should contact the editor offering a de-mystification?  Naturally, it’d be in words of one syllable or fewer.

UPDATE: I’ve fiddled with the link to make it easier to see.  There’ve been comments…
