Given who runs the banks I can just imagine who the first targets will be. But how ironic would it be if it backfires!

What could go wrong? LOL

Psychopaths in power, really DO talk about "culling the herd".

There are some people at the top that want this world all for themselves. This technology could be used as genocide.

But...the people at the top don't do the work. They are "feeding" on all those below them. So, they are the only "unnecessary" people in the society.

It's the people at the bottom of the ladder that are most important to keep the economy going

The gene editing technology in the article could potentially be used for 'supersoldiers'. Breeding humans genetically tailored for size speed intellect aggression. Suspect that's more what they want it for. Think 'Soldier' or 'Khan' 😀

An alternative line of thinking might suggest that the tech could be used to create/augment humans to better withstand the rigors or space travel or deep sea exploration. Gotta admit, if gills is an option I could be persuaded to sign up for that.

I'd like to be under the sea, in an octopuses garden...in the shade.

Side note:
For those interested in RPG's check out Steve Jackson Games excellent Transhuman Space


The game assumes that no cataclysm — natural or human-induced — swept Earth in the 21st century. Instead, constant developments in information technology, genetic engineering, nanotechnology and nuclear physics generally improved condition of the average human life. Plagues of the 20th century (like cancer or AIDS) have been suppressed, the ozone layer is being restored and Earth's ecosystems are recovering (although thermal emission by fusion power plants poses an environmental threat—albeit a much lesser one than previous sources of energy). Thanks to modern medicine humans live biblical timespans surrounded by various artificially intelligent helper applications and robots (cybershells), sensory experience broadcasts (future TV) and cyberspace telepresence.

Thanks to cheap and clean fusion energy humanity has power to fuel all these wonders, restore and transform its home planet and finally settle on other heavenly bodies. Human genetic engineering has advanced to the point that anyone—single individuals, same-sex couples, groups of three or more—can reproduce. The embryos can be allowed to be developed naturally, or they can undergo three levels of tinkering: 1. Genefixing, which corrects defects; 2. Upgrades, which boost natural abilities (Ishtar Upgrades are slightly more attractive than usual, Metanoia Upgrades are more intelligent, etc.); and... 3. Full transition to parahuman status (Nyx Parahumans only need a few hours of sleep per week, Aquamorphs can live underwater, etc.) Another type of human genetic engineering, far more controversial, is the creation of bioroids, fully sentient slave races.


It takes things in a more positive direction instead of purely death and destruction.

Truly horrific idea, unless it is the zombie apocalypse or something similar and they can kill off all the infected quickly before the infection spreads to everyone else.

If God had meant for man to fly he would have given him wings.

But if God created man, and man created wings, then God meant for man to fly....

So, who created CRISPR?

Think before you answer.

God, or if you really wanna get technical a Muse who serve under Gabriel who was created by God whispered in somebody's ear and boom Crispr.

Philosophically speaking, sure.

Or it was some stoned out college students....which could be a good premise for a comedy flick.

Harold and Kumar modify humanity.

If God had not meant man to do genetic engineering he would not have made it so easy to do so.

Free will. Dammit.

The guy on the left.

No thoughts on the whole "genetic doomsday" weapons being created by Darpa?

Ah!
Damned liberals.

DARPA doesn't really do much, they just pay others to figure out how to do stuff. But I don't pay a lot of attention to NaturalNews. For a long time.l
