It's a scenario that has haunted biologists since the dawn of the DNA age: the evil scientist custom-crafting a human being with test tubes and Petri dishes.
So when a Chinese team revealed last month that it had used a new laboratory technique to alter a gene in human embryos, it set off an urgent debate over the ethics â€” and wisdom â€” of tinkering with the most basic building blocks of life.
The technology makes genetic manipulations that were theoretical in the past seem easy to achieve â€” and soon....
Well when these so called scientists can go out to a swamp and hit it with an electrical charge and then show me a cell that can reproduce itself into a human, then I might pay attention to them. The more mankind understands Godâ€™s miraculous creation, the more they think they are godlike, even if they donâ€™t use that term. Oh, and after this electrical charge produces a cell, then of course it has to be able to produce a separate male and then a female; with different body parts. These people may be very intelligent, but they are very very unwise to mess with Godâ€™s perfect creation. They can modify it; nothing more and nothing less.
