Majestic Comeback?

Researchers from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) in Syracuse, N.Y., with supporters from The American Chestnut Foundation, planted 10 transgenic American chestnut trees at a test site in The New York Botanical Garden. The scientists say there is reason to believe this field trial will reveal a variety of American chestnut that can survive a blight attack.

Science to the rescue again.  Good job. 

God still hates fig trees so stay away from those.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.
