Genetic Engineering Will Change Everything Forever – CRISPR
This is no doubt one of the most exciting scientific developments in our lifetimes. I hope it won't be outlawed for "ethical" reasons like stem cell research was in many countries.

Exciting and frightening. Are we equipped to responsibly use a tool this powerful?

Are we equipped to use anything that requires a significant degree of responsibility? Tongue

I don't really care about living longer, but I'd love to infuse myself with shark DNA and have a second penis. I'm so excited for the future Cool

Although... "transhumanism," just the word alone will be a stumbling block to conservative lawmakers. It sounds like a combination of two things they already hate. Don't think that wouldn't factor into their reasoning, because it absolutely would. Laugh out load

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

They'd probably think it has something to do with political correctness. It'd be hilarious to see.

They are going to have a much more difficult time building that wall. But it will be fun watching them try. Big Grin

Also. You already don't have anything to do with one penis, why would you want a second?

Probably not. For the good of society, our intellectually superior designer babies will have to kill us after they are born.

For the Love of God I hope they do it humanely.
