Hmm, I dunno if this violates the TOC; you're not supposed to promote personal blogs without checking in with mods, though you're linking to this
woman's blog who you're helping. A bit in the grey area, I guess, just a heads up though so you know in the future.
As for these prophecies/warnings, they seem to be fit the typical "God is pisssst, change your wayz!!!!" agenda. While I am all for ending wars,
setting aside differences, and bringing the human collective together, I highly doubt we're anything special in the eyes of any creator.
Genetic engineering is a necessity for us to progress as a species, allow me to explain why:
Natural selection no longer applies to us; by aiding people with defective genes, we're furthering the presence of said genes within the gene pool.
To not aid said people is of course inhumane and unethical, but from an evolutionary standpoint it is absolutely blasphemous to preserve the presence
of a bad gene; it corrupts the entire gene pool and makes us weaker as a species. This is where genetic engineering comes into play; we can either
endure the grueling process of evolution which takes millions upon millions of years of trial and error to perfect, or we can skip the entire process
and just choose which genes we want. Of course, to use genetic engineering for aesthetic purposes is disgusting and deplorable, but on the other end
of the spectrum, it offers us the ability to prevent a child being born prone to cancers or with hereditary diseases.
As for god's plan, to save life should be no less of a sin than taking one; if god intends a person to die, why should we try to save that person's
life? It's god's plan, after all, right? God might get angry if we give little Timmy a heart transplant...
