The Cause of Civil War

Human or Robot
According to McKibben, genetic engineering has long been ruining human meaning. “These new technologies show us that human meaning dangles by a far thinner thread than we had thought.” (p.422) Meaning is that we, parents, now can decide to create a baby as good as Einstein with genetic engineering. But is it alright to us to do the Lord’s job? And as known, this job needs a plenty of money that most people cannot afford to have an “Einstein baby”. One more question is to us. Is it fair if the offspring of rich parents had the best genetic modifications of their strength and stamina genes?      
    We don’t say genetic engineering is the bad thing. The thing, we refer to, are moral. We can accept scientists to begin their working of genetic technology to create new species such as plants, animals or micro-organisms. However, if they attempt to change the nature of human, that becomes another problem. Nobody can’t decide who is intelligent, who is handsome, or who is strong; that is the way people are. We are not robots and are pre-programmed.      
    Scientists or doctors can use genetic testing to know exactly a short of our genetic system. Then we will know what diseases we are having, giving us chances to take steps to delay their onset or even prevent them altogether. However, the problem expands as people have meanings to enhance their healthiness, their abilities, or even the capacity of their memory. For example, in a neighborhood, your neighbor has just “upgraded” their children to have cleverer brains by genetic engineering, and the others start to do same. What are you thinking? So you have to choice to decide your children’s future. That is likely a chaining effect; people are thinking as that way. McKibben concerns in this problem as much.
    McKibben is afraid of genetic engineering will reduce human freedom. We are already pre-programmed by our random genes; we are not probably perfect in some way. As even that acknowledges,...
