"Religion provides a perceptual filter, highly religious people look at information differently, it follows from the way religion provides guidance in
people's everyday lives," Professor Dietram Scheufele from the Department of Life Sciences Communication at the University of Wisconsin said. The US
was found to be the most religious country in the survey, and also the least accepting of nanotechnology.

China, Russia, and the United States have invested billions of dollars in nanotech research. And it’s actually working! That pile of cash has helped scientists come up with all kinds of exotic uses for these tiny particles. Their structure and size help them fight cancer, manipulate light, and carry electrons in ways that neither individual atoms nor bulk macroscale materials can.

Back in May 2010, geneticist J. Craig Venter announced the creation of the first synthetic life form, having replaced the genetic code in a Mycoplasma capricolum bacterium with DNA he and his team had created themselves, thus turning into a Mycoplasma mycoides. To differentiate the synthetic code from naturally occuring DNA code, they composed theirs of several quotes, including one from James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man along with a quote from Richard Feynman.
The Feynman quote turned out to be misphrased, but the real oddness arose when Venter received a cease & desist letter from the Joyce estate stating that the work quoted was not, in fact, under fair use, as Venter and his team had assumed. Of course, by then the bacterium had already successfully reproduced. (Can't stop the signal?)
