Overall I think the ethics of biotechnology can be quite invasive in learning everything scientist can about humans and life in general. Although the ultimate goal behind the biotechnology will be the preservation of human life on this planet such as survival of the fittest with the biobanks, stem cell and cloning research. Unless something deadly came out of this I don't really have any concerns other than us as human being we are not letting nature take its course. We are altering the timeline of our existence unlike other animals such as sharks that have evolved over hundreds of millions of years and still thrive in our oceans today. After reading the article though my opinion hasn't changed I see the merit behind these programs to ensure that we will be on this Earth for a long time but there does come a point were nature really needs to take its course otherwise we wouldn't have evolved in what we are now today.

Discussion Question: Do you think the world will come to a point that we need the genetically modified food in order to sustain our population?

You make an excellent point! I've been constantly writing about science and promoting it. And, even though I also read about the ethics and, agree, I haven't really stopped to think about how we've evolved. You've actually made me rethink a few things and I'm greatful! What would happen to us if we didn't continue to evolve? Maybe we're meant to evolve in a different way, maybe science is part of that, maybe it isn't. I hope we don't ever NEED genetically modified food, but if we ever do need to supplement our supply I hope that we'll be able to do it in a way that will be both ethical, and that we'd be able to create something positive from the outcome. I thought I was done responding to blogs but yours was so interesting I couldn't resist, thank you!
