According to BBC news reporting no a major Scientific Conference, the hot topic is Genetic Engineering of Embryos.

That could and would lead to "designer humans"

Do we want that?

Will Jehovah allow it?

Well if humans can do a better job than gods, and eradicate Spina Bifida, Cystic Fibrosis and all the other genetic diseases then I hope it is coming very soon.

I would say in a way designer humans have being happening for along time just more indirectly.

Think about how females are selective in choosing a mate, too short, too fat, too dumb......

This is just a step up from that.

Sure. Why not? We could eradicate so many genetic diseases, as well as well as could reach the pinnacle of human potential.

Will Jehovah allow it?

I don't care.

It seems to have some promise, unless you prefer children being born with genetic predisposition to obesity, or other diseases.

Will Jehovah allow it?

When he decides to show himself he can have a say.

The evil deity, should it exist, would probably enjoy the mayhem that could ensure from such a process!

The evil one would. Satan would definitely gain great pleasure form it.

Jehovah would not. He is a God of order not of chaos.

No, but I do prefer it to be corrected Jehovah's way, in Jehovah's own time. Only he has the intelligence and intellect to correct these things wisely and permanently, and when the time is right, he will.

Man's meddling has always proved to bring more harm than good, and always will.

True some of it may bring good to individuals, but at the same time it brings harm to humanity as a whole.

For instance, hat is the point in making individuals live longer when the population thus reaches dangerous levels causing starvation etc? Is the individual more important than the whole?

The obesity problem is simply cured.

Those who, by their nature burn less calories simply need to take less calories in.

It is a very simple and completely foolproof equation. Those greedy fools are very determined at times.

When he decides to show himself he can have a say.

He shows himself all the time to those with eyes to see and ears to hear. those not as described by Christ at Matthew 13:15.

Matthew 13:15American Standard Version (ASV)

15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, And their ears are dull of hearing, And their eyes they have closed; Lest haply they should perceive with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And should turn again, And I should heal them.

Does that describe you?

It would appear so at present, since you refuse to acknowledge the obvious evidence preferring to listen to those who should, and in some cases doubtless do, know better.

Your invisible friend doesn't have a say, because he doesn't exist and according to you he doesn't interfere with free will, despite what his silly book says.

Hehe, good point. However these fanatics' argument about naturality is never applicable of something that is beneficial for themselves. They would never turn down computers or anesthesia, but they would agree on that homosexuality is unnatural.

True some of it may bring good to individuals, but at the same time it brings harm to humanity as a whole.

For example the invention of penicillin. Or the eradication of smallpox. Or the vaccines against measles, diphteria, tetanus etc etc. Who benefits from these? Just a few!

For instance, hat is the point in making individuals live longer when the population thus reaches dangerous levels causing starvation etc? Is the individual more important than the whole?

Do 90 year olds automatically starve? I don't understand.

A fanatic Christian who spews hatred against obese people...

Well, the science/corporate community wants them, or they wouldn"t be investing the time and resources in it to bring the subject to a public discussion. Military would probably want them. And we don"t have the power and influence in the world to stop what they want.

Will Jehovah allow it?

The same mind set fed their military crystal meth to give them the capability to drive their tanks and fight for over two days without a break, to fuel the blitzkrieg. Giving the sense, that they were super soldiers, superior men. And the Lord God allowed that.

Yes, because it was not his time for his son to step in.

That time is soon to come.

Always soon. For 2,000 years nutters have been saying soon.

If your jehovah wants to ban designer humans , why doesn't she eradicate genetic diseases ?

Define "soon". What are the outer limits of the word as you use it?
