Default Re: Toying with Genetics

I don't think it would be a good idea.

Preventing diseases and severe conditions might be good.

On the other hand, who are we to say that we know what's better and what isn't? Isn't that all just an opinion? As the brother of someone with a severe neurological condition, I gave this some thought. What if my younger brother's Autism could have been detected and turned off? Hey, it would have made our lives easier in a lot of ways, but I wouldn't want it. He is who he is, and I LIKE him, no matter how difficult he acts sometimes.

If we could use this to save lives, then perhaps we should. But there's no question that this brings with it some of its own ethical issues.

If I could be engineered to play a really sweet guitar, then I'd think that was groovy. I wouldn't want it, though, because making myself better at it might take away my own appreciation for, say, the way my girlfriend plays guitar. It would take away the uniqueness of it, and with it, everything I enjoy about humanity.

My question is does anyone agree with it?

Personally I don't. It takes away the beauty of nature as well as the surprise. I honestly think its trying to change something that shouldn't be changed.
If I ever did had a kid that was mine and not adopted I would only change him/her if they would be born with something bad. Like being born with a disease or something [this came up in my biology class too]

GATTACA is such a good movie based on this premise, and the whole theory of predestination.
