Our species is moving closer and closer to the point where we can, by
the use of the scientific method, change the genes of our future
children to remove certain hereditary diseases. This, of course can be
a very good thing for our offspring, but there are other ramifications
as well, such as the eventual ability to design our own offspring,
either in terms of sex, longevity, and even fashion and aesthetic outcomes.
Then there is the developments in AI and nano metric computing systems,
autocops, autowarriors, automatic medical diagnosis, and pre-emptive
crime fighting to name but a few.
The stuff that modern science fiction is made out of.
Anyone care to express a view, for or against, or to propose how it will
affect the future of our species, and other animals on the planet...
