Article: Gattaca Alert? Or Should We Welcome the New Age of Eugenics?

Sent via Flipboard

Bleh eugenics. I think Nature has its own way of bringing balance back. Have seen a lot of doomsday predictions of how a species has so little living members that it will breed itself into extinction very soon hence it doesn't represent a viable population anymore. Hence that argument against eugenics (creating a homogenous population that isn't resilient  to change ) seems void.

On the flipside I think attempts at making faster stronger smarter and more good looking humans is also doomed to failure. At least what I observe is that people who are doing well seem to prefer to have less kids.

if anything u would have thought that thousands of years of "selective breeding "would have brought us closer to being perfect as a species.
