Like It Or Not, Humankind Is On Its Way To Being  Synthetically Altered

“As In The Days Of Noah”

Trans Child

The Human Genome Project was one of the very few scientific projects that achieved more than it envisioned, was completed before time and spent less than what was originally planned (the original proposal was to sequence human genome in 15 years using $3 billion but it delivered in 13 years spending $2.7 billion). HGP-Write too can achieve similar success and can bring in innovations in genome sequencing, engineering and synthetic biology that can have far-reaching beneficial consequences in the field of medicine and agriculture. However, for the project to get there, it must discuss the ethical, societal and legal issues proactively, openly and widely – and place safeguards against any future misuse.

Whether some like it not, it’s just a matter of time (and price) as to when humans will be able to stitch together genomes synthetically. Therefore, it’s just not a question of how but when. Looking back to the historic announcement in the White House in June 26, 2000 – when President Bill Clinton, UK’s prime minister Tony Blair, and Drs. Francis Collins and Craig Venter (heads of the public and private human genome sequencing initiatives respectively) announced the completion of the first rough draft of the human genome – we have come a long way.

Transhumanists Fantasize A Posthuman Future Where Our Future Cyborg Selves

Are “Unmoored” From Faith In God

The survivors became something beyond human, yet irrecoverably tied to the origin of their accession. An interplanetary civilization grown from the seedpod of a planetary species. Silba has processed all the literature on the topic. She holds one of her silvery, lance-like appendages up to the lights of Jupiter and the sun. She splits the spike into five separate digits and bends them to mimic, albeit imperfectly, a human hand.

Over the course of centuries, humans became unfixed from the physical — unmoored from the limits of physical existence, cultural expectations, sex and gender. Religion and nationality melted from the underlying form. They broke free, too, from chain-link servitude of genetic expectation. There was a cost, of course — one paid in blood and misery. The inevitable seismic horrors of vast cultural transformation shook the species, risked everything it had accomplished, until the wars finally withered and social unrest assumed its resting decay state.

Scientists Editing Human Genes Raising Fears About Jurassic Park 

And Replacing God

 

We are rushing toward genetically engineering humans and replacing what some believe is a holy entity with a scientist. Chinese scientists have already claimed to have genetically created embryos but did not bring the embryo to term to test if it could live. Those on the left fear “Monstanto-style” GMOs. Some bring up the ethical question on whether something constitutes a genetic defect or simply a different life experience. Anti-intervention advocates might argue that “God made me blind for a reason” as an example. While other would want to take advantage of scientific advancements to restore sight.

Last year, a group of 30 scientists and activists called for a global ban on genetic modification. Fearful science fiction addicts look to films like Gattaca and Jurassic Park that resulted in a dystopian future for the world. Others believe this is a baby step toward genetically engineering humans and replacing what some believe is a holy entity with a scientist.
