Creating human genomes and synthetic people, destroying entire species with gene drives (PhysOrg). For more on the threat of “Human Genome Project – Write” see Science Magazine‘s recent article.

History, human reason and morality make so much more sense in light of the Bible. Have you ever read it? Try it now.
