Default Toying with Genetics

Something that was brought up in my Biology class when we were doing genetics. I've been thinking about it for sometime now.

My teacher mentioned something about eventually being able basically create the child and make it what you want.

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

well i agree it takes away the suprise and messes with nature bt it could annialate genetic diseases like down syndrome forever, but when you mes with one gene, you can never be sure how it will affect the others

Exaclty. I mean true it will get rid of genetic diseases but think about it. No one wants to be what someone wants them to be. ._.

....wait..you saying we can make our babies like..ET..and all? O.o


EDIT: Anyway, I do also believe it'd be messed up. It's like having a over controlled mother or something saying you gotta be like this or that.
Uncool, man.

@Jen: No. I mean like its a human child but you can chose eye color hai color maybe even personalities and crap. basically who the child is going to be is in the hands of the parents...which isnt always a good idea.

Technically, it's already in the hands of the parents. The genes and traits do come from the parents already.
Except nature takes a toll to it as well. But still.

That the parents personally choose everything, rather let a natural experience choose the genes?
I think that's wrong too. It's different..it's artificial. Not right.

I think it's perfect. The last thing parents need is for the mother to birth an eel because a stray alpha particle zapped a stem cell. Or 20.

Which is the reason why I think there are somethings in this world that we'll be better off learning and finding out, like the topic of this thread.

I find people's interpretation of "man" offensive. haha! We are creatures of habit. Try to reason and logically explain away as much as you can, but we are. If we can change our habit's then we can change who we become, and change our views of humanity. Unfortunately, we've become lazy and have refused to overcome habituation. So, right now, I agree that such a power would be abused. However, those that were genetically "altered" will eventually be the onces that control that power. Perhaps, the negative interpretation of humanity would be gone by then.

But this just reminds me of a book called Childhood's End; where humanity is lost to evolution. This means strife, illness, and all of those things are gone, but so is art and any emotional feelings we use to feel. The book is about an alien race helping to usher us into this next stage of evolution, but this subject makes me think of us turning ourselves into strangers.

In the sense of genetic engineering, the question that rises is if we were to genetically engineer our species to be better athletes, better musicians, or walking super computers will we just make it to where an elitist group is made where if you're now genetically modified you'll be the leaders of the world or be able to get the best jobs without question. If you have the chance you should ask your teacher to watch the movie called "Gattaca" where Ethan Hawke plays as "a-naturally-born" person and isn't able to do a lot in society because he wasn't genetically modified. It's a great movie that makes you think a lot about what would happen if we were to do this.
