  • Designer babies, the end of diseases, genetically modified humans that never age. Outrageous things that used to be science fiction are suddenly becoming reality. The only thing we know for sure is that things will change irreversibly.

    I'm down for a future kinda like this, but do you guys think that earth would be more liberal in some sense? Like I can't picture a civilization moving forward in this manner being conservative.

    Looking at the infighting and the attention-seeking in these comments, I'm strangely glad we can't do this yet. We all are why we can't have nice things.

    Genetic Engineering???Designer babies, the end of diseases, genetically modified humans that never age.

    Me; children born with both sex organs and breast or not.. or children having both male and female? What is the chance the people who are LBGT are because their genes were Genetic Engineered??

    My questions are to harm no one. Its an honest question I was wondering as I typed and watched the video. I have no issue with the LBGTQ humans.

    I wonder do vaccines kinda connected to Genetic Engineering?
    This video is very interesting in an educational format.

    peace & love

    Genetic engineering would be okay for medical use (such as curing diseases or correcting genetic disorders) but the moment we use it for our own convenience to turn generations into what we want is when problems may start to arise.
