  • Published on: 10 August 2016
  • Designer babies, the end of diseases, genetically modified humans that never age. Outrageous things that used to be science fiction are suddenly becoming reality. The only thing we know for sure is that things will change irreversibly.

    I cant help but wonder how in a perfect world without diseases or aging being, just the very idea of things like getting in a car crash or being murdered would be even more terrifying than they already are.

    It would be nice to have genetically modified humans if we didn't have racists, and various hate groups. Opening this door will be like opening Pandora's box and changing the way our wars are fought.

    I think being artificially engineered will change everythingif some people choose to have an artificially created baby then when he grows us. he will have more chance to be successfullet's take this on a wild scale. most people on earth are artificially created. the others that are not, well, they are homelesswhy would you choose to employ someone that's genetically weaker than someone that can lift a car or somethingit will make more and more people have artificially genetic babies but here is the problem. it's not for free, if you don't have the money to genetically change your baby then you are guaranteeing him a bad future. he will be weaker, dumber than the people who are artificially changednow there's no way the one that is responsible for genetically changing babies will make it for free, they want to profit, and if everyone is pushing their limits to make their baby at least the average so they have a decent life, then they will make it more and more expensive, making more and more people unemployed due to them not being strong like the otherswhat about the types of genetics. just in your lifetime, it is guaranteed that artificial engineering people will become better. in turn, makes you an "old model"let's just hope that people don't invent artificial engineering or at least make it free

    Just because we can do this doesn't mean that we should. Think Khan from Star Trek.
