What a grand idea!
Surely kicking out a block at the bottom of the food chain will have no effect higher up right.
Why don't these idiots wait until they are a little closer to perfecting genetic manipulation before they start screwing with things that could have a
long lasting and potentially very negative side effect?
I guess when giant chunks of the food chain are missing and most of the worlds food supply does little more than cause cancer and birth defects they
will realize it was a bad idea. Or probably not.
Someone needs to reign in these morons.
At the core of your quesitons is an existential conundrum that we moderns must face.
Once the concept of a transcendent Creator who has designed and built this cosmos to specifications is thrown out the window, there is no reason not
to do what these folks are doing. If it's all just a freak accident of some pointless, aimless chemical processes gone haywire, then there is no
order, no structure, ultimately no meaning.
That being the case, whose to say that it's not OK to do whatever we want to do? There's no point to it being the way it is, no reason for its
existence, no method to the apparent madness, no rhyme to the reason, so messing with the the accidental result of chaos is just adding more of the
same to the recipe.
If, on the other hand, one acknowledges that there is a transcendent creator who has designed it all and has a purpose, then two things sink in:
, it's not mine
) to do with as we please. We answer to a higher authority and must take the purposes of that higher
authority into consideration.
, given that there is an acknowledged (if not fully understood) order to it all, one also acknowledges that one should not tamper with
that order as upsetting it may have unintended and un-good consequenses.
So, enjoy the world we've created. Who's left to say they are in the wrong?
