Should we play God?

Asked by Crazydawg (1268points) May 5th, 2014

We have the ability to manipulate our genes with the possibility to eliminate most diseases. We are using stem cells is achieving medical breakthroughs making the impossible possible.

Now we can get Vampire Terapy that can reverse the aging processes of the body.

I am using the word “God” metaphorically to ask about the moral and ethical ramifications of being able to literally play God in manipulating the selective process of natural and life and death.

I wonder about someone creating a perfect human even super human. If we don’t do it some other country will. Will the race to create perfect humans become the next “arms race”?
