I'm all for eradicating diseases and other dibilitating conditions, but "Designer Humans" is a very bad idea.
This Enriquez guy sounds like every mad scientist in apocalyptic sci-fi movies.
This mastery, Enriquez explained, has allowed us to take our evolution – to take our fate – into our own hands.
“Instead of letting nature select what lives here, I’m going to select what lives here.” He concluded, saying with great gravity, “Science used to be about discovery, now it is about creation.”
He doesn't understand that the imperfection of evolution is it's perfection.
It's how we adapt and grow, via mutations and natural selection.
Guys like him think we're greater than we are. That because we're smarter than a duck, we're smart.
Regardless of his educational background, he has a lot to learn.
Pursuing genetically created super humans is a very bad idea.
