had a look through index couldnt find anything if there is already a thread please lock

ok so do you agree with g.e and g.m.o? (genetic enganering and genetically modified organisims) do you think that scientists should mess with our food or even with unborn children?

me personally i think its ok to modify food slightly to benifit health but i dont agree with modifying children unless they have some kind of terrible deformation or sickness and it will save their life.

for me so long as they dont go to far i think g.e and g.m.o is ok

g.e and g.m.o....
man i think im to bias... from all those Games like Resident Evil or Parasite Eve. (Blue sub. #6 -left a deep impression on me as a kid)
personally i don't take any extreme stance on this. If i had to pic i think id be "pro" (g.e ; g.m.o)
When i think of the possibilities in terms of Medical advancement are immense... I don't think the idea itself is bad, its probably how ppl go about doing their experiments and such, that make this such a controversial topic.

Im against it. I'd rather let natural evolution occur, rather we as stupid humans create something for the purpose of killing rivals, only for it to escape and populate.(Insert movie name here. )

Agreed, though it should only be for limited purposes.

I'm quite against G.E and GMO, because it'll corrupt nature, and can cause some ugly side-affects. Nature isn't something to be messed with.

GMOs may be bad for the envoirnment and of lesser quaility than naturally grown food but it has faster, cheaper, and more plentiful production. it maybe true that its killing off the topsoil and what not, but in the end isnt being poorly fed better than not being fed at all?

they shouldn't play God with living things... only God has the power to do that

we could end up in modified humans.. and that's terrible..
