DNA is the software of life. Scientists known as bio-engineers have been "monkeying around" with DNA for a long time...(No offense to you, Mr. Charles Darwin)! They're interested in creating new energy sources and new life forms...(Take me to your leader)! Synthetic biology scares the be-Jesus out of me. What is all this new stuff going to do? What are the ramifications for "joe-blows" like me? Where does the research money come from? Is the military going to implement new biological weapons, or new genetic lifeforms? Medical research, private investors, politicians, and so-called "black-ops" are wigging me out, man!
The "squints" out there pretty much know all about the genetic material in the human body. They are now involved in creating new genetic codes. I wonder who is going to be the beneficiary of these new genetic secrets? How do we know that science will be "bio-ethical"? There are many moral questions for us to consider. As populations increase, environments are endangered. New bacterial designs may solve our problems. But knowing mankind, the way I think I know mankind, we'll probably all go to hell in a handbasket.
