I'd say its being done now to the extent that current technology and knowledge will allow. The FDA has a ban on genetically modifying a human embryo, but it's there is no criminal penalty.

THE FDA?

That's a dumb argument to make. Nothing stopping you from having sex with a woman just because it won't result in a baby.
One would hope that when Baby is a Topic that love is felt at least...Love should be felt anyway...

I suppose love for sex above the character a real...while some are still deciphering what and how to feel and finding the Busy for freak was already a present...

“New analyses of the human genome have established that human evolution has been recent, copious, and regional"
According to this, rapid evolution in Europe (mostly England) in the last 1000 years has led to the industrial revolution and modern technological advances. I would argue that this was not truly evolution but mostly selective breeding. If this led to the industrial revolution, it was obviously very successful. However I would caution against putting too much stock into this. While research in the human genome is very important, DNA sequencing is still an imperfect science and gene funtion is poorly understood. Also this seems to be leading down the same dead end road of racial superiority that germany took. I am certain that all the major races have evolved unique traits that confer an evolutionary advantage.
This is informative. Thanks.

Stop the grammar, and challenge what i said. There was no Germany or Denmark then, when the Germans came they spoke a Germanic language called German, the Danes spoke Danish, while the English spoke English to this very day.

Being able to order a baby to specifications won't stop people from having sex to produce them either. Evolution made it something you want to do, so life will keep ....um... being alive. Procreation is a necessary function, no amount of promises of perfect babies grown in a test tube will change this.

Yeah I agree. I said you would be able to pick your babies genes in the near future but I'm not an expert, just base that on the rapid advances they have made. They definitely shouldn't do it until its proven safe. Probably start with trying to fix birth defects. UK may start doing that now, I'll look up the article. This is pretty minor and should be safe.-

the UK government began the process of changing the law to allow ‘mitochondrial DNA transfer

Under the technique, parents at high risk of having children with severe disabilities such as muscular dystrophy will be offered donor DNA to mend genetic flaws.

Doctors would remove the nucleus from a donor egg and replace it with genetic material from the mother's egg, either before or after fertilisation by the father. The resulting egg could be implanted using IVF techniques.

Human rights groups have said allowing the technique would breach European law which states that the human genome cannot be altered if the changes would be passed on to future generations.

It is within the realm of possibility to end hunger and wars. Being within the realm of possibility does not mean it is or will be.

It sounds alot like eugenics and an attempt to create the master race or super beings. The ability to pre cure diseases sounds good, bit the guise leaves too much to be corrupted. Remember the doctor who did something of the same thing with infertile couples, but inseminated a whole town of women with his own semen?
Then there was Mengles children, the Hitler youth children etc....

I agree that there are cases of GM being beneficial which would not fall into the category of creating a custom human, as was proposed. Still, if a hereditary disease or birth defect can be prevented, there are still those who will scream "them scientist people is playing God with our babies!"

I'm all for it helping, but the down sides are huge.
Another problem would arise from this, and humans not genetically engineered, could be labeled inferior. Khan comes to mind, though we could even go to the island of Dr. Moreau with this technology. We already are faced with DNA profiling, I suppose it's inevitable though, we will be forced to such measures, or become slaves to our own creations.
Cybernetics and engineered humans are destined to be pieced together, to create super humans.

...screwing up a fix for hemophilia, getting spanked by our superior cyborg offspring and annoying the Westboro folks with test tube babies. Great. Now I'll never be able to sleep at night.

Maybe some Cosmic thing too to what serves a body...

Have my thoughts on some things and the distance of evolving events, which should have been evolved by now evolved and resolved...

Life must have had it's reason to say that life's history has no meaning? For whom it so be it be that I suppose ...

By now a lot has to look at more other things eventful adventurous and daring I mean what better mood for war...

You will argue it any way you want to.
