Will Genetic Modification Usher In A New Age Of Prosperity Or Will It Unleash Health, Environmental And Economic Nightmares Of Unprecedented Magnitude?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

In recent years, scientists around the globe have made absolutely stunning advances in the field of genetic modification.  For decades, researchers have been decoding DNA and transplanting genes from one organism into another, but over the past decade things have been taken to a completely new level.  We now have “monster salmon” which grow three times as fast as normal salmon, corn that has been genetically modified to have a pesticide grow inside the corn kernel, cats that glow in the dark and goats that produce spider silk.  Those in favor of genetic engineering believe that such advances will help us feed billions more people, enable us to cure a vast array of diseases and will usher in a new age of unprecedented prosperity.  Those against genetic engineering warn that messing with nature could unleash health, environmental and economic nightmares beyond our wildest dreams.  So who is right?

Most Americans spend very little time thinking about genetic modification, but the truth is that this debate if of the utmost importance.  Some believe that improving upon nature is the number one key to a bright economic future, while others warn that messing with nature could not only destroy our economy but also literally destroy the earth.

But right now there are very, very few limits on what scientists can do when it comes to genetic modification, and many of them are running around like “kids is a candy store” modifying anything and everything that they can get their hands on.

The goal for many of these scientists is to produce plants and animals that are bigger, stronger, grow faster, produce more food and generally make life “better” for humanity. 

Most people don’t realize it, but genetic engineering technology is everywhere now.  In fact, you have probably eaten some genetically modified food recently without even knowing it.   

Today approximately 93 percent of all soybeans and approximately 80 percent of all corn in the United States grow from seeds genetically altered according to Monsanto company patents.

The population of the world is projected to hit 9 billion around the middle of this century, and scientists are hoping that further advances in genetic engineering will enable us to feed all those people.

So many researchers are “pushing the envelope” in an effort to create new creatures that can feed as many people as possible.  For example, one team of scientists recently created a genetically modified “monster salmon” which grows three times as fast as normal salmon.

Three times as fast?

That is impressive by any standard.

But are there dangers?

Well, yes.

For example, a stunning new study that was recently published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences has conclusively demonstrated the extreme toxicity of three genetically modified corn varieties produced by Monsanto.

According to the study, each of the three strains of corn tested cause serious problems in the kidneys and the liver.

Perhaps that could help to explain the absolute explosion of kidney disease in the United States.

Not only that, but prison inmates in Illinois are becoming seriously ill from all of the genetically modified soy that they are constantly being fed.

In fact, there are entire websites devoted to documenting the dangers that genetically modified foods pose.

Despite the potential dangers, the U.S. government continues to promote genetically modified crops as the solution to the global food shortage problem.

For example, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is attempting to downplay the risks of genetically modified alfalfa, a crop previously banned by numerous federal courts.

The truth is that the U.S. government is being completely reckless in promoting these genetically modified crops before sufficient research can be performed on them.

You see, once these genetically modified crops get out into the environment they can never be contained.  You can’t put the genie back into the bottle.

A perfect example of this occurred in Europe recently.  A genetically modified variety of maize banned in the EU was accidentally sown all across Germany.  But now that it has gotten out there and started spreading there is no way that it can ever be fully eliminated.

The reality is that we are monkeying around with life itself, and that is a power that we simply do not fully understand.

But as frightening as the genetic modification of our food supply is, what scientists are now doing with animals is even more alarming.

How so?

Well, the Canadian government recently approved the introduction of extremely bizarre genetically modified pigs into the Canadian food supply.  These new mouse/pig cross-species hybrids have been nicknamed “enviropigs” and are being touted as being much better for the environment.  This new “breed” of Yorkshire pigs was created by scientists in Ontario at the University of Guelph, who spliced in genes from mice to decrease the amount of phosphorus produced in their poop.

It all sounds very noble.  After all, who wouldn’t want to do something good for the environment?

But will eating mouse/pig hybrids be good for us?

Millions of Canadians will soon be eating them, and it is anticipated that approval for these “enviropigs” will be sought in the United States as well. 

Are you starting to get the picture?

And sometimes scientists genetically modify animals for no particular good reason at all.

For example, scientists have now created  a cat that actually glows in the dark.

Yes, seriously.

A genetically modified cat created by scientists named Mr. Green Genes was the very first fluorescent cat in the United States.

So does such a “creation” have any legitimate purpose?

Well, perhaps it could serve as a “night light”, but other than that there is no good reason for abusing cats like that.

What in the world are our scientists thinking?

They are pretty much running around doing whatever they want these days.

In fact, creatures that are a lot more frightening than fluorescent cats have already been created.

Have you heard of “spider goats”?

A Canadian company named Nexia is actually producing goats that are genetically modified to be part spider.

The genetic modification causes these “spider goats” to produce spider silk protein in their milk that is collected, purified and spun into incredibly strong fibers.

These fibers are reportedly more durable than Kevlar, more flexible than nylon, and much stronger than steel.

Apparently these fibers have some very valuable industrial and military applications.

Perhaps you have never heard of these spider goats.

Perhaps you are skeptical.

The YouTube video posted below contains a television news report that discusses these “spider goats” and features scientists describing exactly how they create these spider goats and what they are doing with them….

Okay, so they are recklessly genetically modifying plants and animals, but they would never do that to humans, right?

Wrong.

Scientists have begun breeding genetically modified pigs with a goal of providing organs for transplant to humans.  These genetically modified pigs actually have human genes in them

So these pigs are actually part human.

Does the idea of a pig/human hybrid bother you?

Well, perhaps they are being grown in your backyard.  These pig/human hybrids are actually being produced in the state of Missouri.

So could these pig/human cross-species hybrids ever end up in our food supply?

No?

You don’t think that they would ever do that to us?

Don’t be so certain.

The truth is that the FDA has already announced that the offspring of cloned animals could be in our food supply right now and that there is nothing that they can do about it.

Isn’t that comforting?

Science is not just crossing new barriers – they are obliterating them.

Our world is rapidly changing, and new species, new lifeforms and even new diseases are being created at a staggering pace.

Once upon a time, only the most highly advanced scientists in the field of genetic engineering would dare do this type of work, but now even college students are transplanting genes and creating new lifeforms.  In fact, a lot of “synthetic biology” startup companies are “developing” new plants, new animals and even new microorganisms in garages and basements.

So what will the result of all this genetic chaos be?

Will devastating new diseases be unleashed upon the world?

Will creatures that are incredibly dangerous to humanity be created?

Will we destroy entire ecosystems?

Could all of this genetic engineering actually cause massive crop failures and bring about a major worldwide food crisis?

Will we soon have creatures that are part human/part animal running around all over the place?

The truth is that we have entered into unknown territory, and the consequences of our actions could end up being much more severe than we ever thought possible.

So what do you think?

Do you think that genetic engineering will enable us to feed the starving masses, cure cancer and bring in an unprecedented era of economic prosperity?

Or do you think that genetic engineering will devastate our economy, our health and our environment?

Feel free to leave a comment with your opinion….

    Wow…Scary indeed. I just finished reading Margaret Atwood’s ‘Oryx and Crake’ where there were spider-goats and pigoons (human-pig cross) and countless other horrific genetically modified organisms created. It was fiction at the time it was written, but like 1984, perhaps it will prove to be prophetic.

  • It will usher in a new age of prosperity for us and do that other thing for everyone else.

  • Concerned Reader

    What is more frightning than the genetic modification of plants, animals and our food is humanity itself. Yes, they are splicing animal DNA with that of humans, but what happens when corporations begin to design humans on a genetic level?

    Imagine these designer humans being able to work harder and faster because their cario-repirtory system has been engineered to function better and last longer than that of a normal human. Also imagine a person being engineered to be smarter and their brain can hold and process twice as much information as a normal human.

    One might argue that this would be a good thing, but it will only be available to the elites who will use it to their advantage. This is truely scary, the thought that the elites of the world could engineer themselves to live longer and better and rule over the unmodified people of the world.

    I imagine in the future before a couple decide to concieve a child they will walk into a clinic and decide to design their baby almost like we currently design the interior of our homes or even birth day cakes. The father could want his son to be athletic and develop muscle mass at twice the rate of a normal kid and the mother might want him to look like her favorite actor, Brad Pitt, who she adores.

    To get back to what the elites will with this technology, once they have reaped the benefits of genetic modification, they will turn it negatively towards the common man. Imagine a frightning new era of eugenics. If only the Nazis had the technology to peer into people’s DNA and determine the weakest stock. Well, they elites, or bad guys, have that technology at their disposal. The Genetically modified people will rule the world like a super race while everyone else is treated like left overs.

    Scientists are actually becoming able to look into our DNA and determine what kind of diseases we will have at what age and whether or not we are prone to violence and crime based on our genes. Once this has become more wide spread into our society, the people who are weak gened will have less employment, relationship, housing and other opprotunities presented to them because they are deemed inferior.

    Imagine a GMO human getting preferrential treatment when applying for a job because he has been modified to perform at a much better rate than a non-GMO person. However, a person does not have to be modified, they could just have a better genetic structure than some one else and they are deemed more valuable.

    A new wave of prejudice will emerge because the people who are not modified will be looked upon as inferior to those who are modified.

  • Marc

    Well, as a scientist I must do some defending here.

    1) Nothing wrong with genetic modifications.

    2) We already share many (like 97%) of our genes with pigs and mice.

    3) Genetic engineering can be done safely and be well tested before being introduced to an environment.

    4) All plants and animals that we eat have been genetically modified by selection by man (and animals) through history.

    Now that that is said, I can say this. We are not doing things right, we are not testing modifications enough, and we are being incredibly stupid letting these genes run-amok in the environment before they have had long term testing done. I also have no doubt that we will suffer in some way for what we are doing.

    I do think that mother nature will survive with or without us. I can guarantee that humans as the species we are now will not survive past the 21st century. We will perhaps have to genetically modify ourselves to survive, or die out by our own hand with some other human like invention or chemically castrate ourselves with the toxins we introduce into our environment.

    I have often thought that we should be on the endangered species list in order to get some attention to what we are doing to ourselves.

  • Lennie Pike

    It would be a very rare case if a person who believes in and knows they should try to obey God would attempt to change what God has created. So what kind of people are changing what God has created and what does that tell you about what the consequences of those changes are going to be? Those people should realize that God created them and be more interested in the change God can make in them them than the changes they can make to what God made. As simple as seeing the Big W, they must be blind, hopefully only temporarily. I think their motivation is pride in being able to attempt to play God and be greater than God just as much or more so than the profit motive. At some point the higher profits will begin to turn in the other direction as there are less customers due to death. Maybe that is the plan whether these people realize it or not.

  • Jason

    This is not about feeding the world – it’s about controlling the world’s food supply. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

  • Jeff

    If there was one sin above all the others that brought the wrath of God upon the antediluvian (pre-flood) civilization, it was the sin of amalgamation of the various species. When mere mortals begin tampering with the genetic blueprint, playing God for profit and erasing the image of the divine from His creation, creating chimeras and monsters and permanently polluting the gene pool, we can know that this civilization has run its course and will soon be obliterated from the face of this planet, buried in some sort of cataclysm, along with all of their abominations.

  • ParLay

    This is the reason that Farmers Markets and backyard gardens are exploding across the U.S. People are getting more and more leary of the mass produced foods aptly named ‘Frankenfood’ and pesticide laden crops and steroid fed livestock. You don’t have to be a scientist or Ph.D. in molecular research to figure this one out!

  • tom bowden

    What does it matter? As long as there is no labelling of GM products, the consumer will be none the wiser. That’s not my view,but the Government’s and Monsanto’s.

  • xander cross

    They already got a movie about this that just came out named Splice. The created human is named Dren.

  • BlueSkies

    The economic collapse and the related chaos will hopefully wind down such wild eyed schemes. One must be honest in any appraisal of the impending collapse: It is exactly what the doctor ordered. It might just shut this sort of garbage down in the nick of time.

  • Steve Michaels

    The unfortunate assumption throughout this article is that the US Government is simply being reckless. That is not the case. This is being done deliberately with full knowledge of the outcomes. The FDA KNOW that by the third generation, mammals fed GM soya become virtually completely infertile. The plan is not to feed 9 billion people, its to kill of 5 billion. Research Agenda 2000 and Bill Gates and the Rockefeller Foundation. The info is out there if you choose to see it.

  • How freaky is that genetically modified monster? Great, now I will be having nightmares of that Al Gore look a like for a week, thanks.

  • inverse_agonist

    This isn’t the answer to any of our food supply problems, because people would just continue to breed until they outstripped the new, larger food supply. The resulting crisis would be even worse. Genetic modification isn’t any sort of panacea, for sure.

    It’s just a technique, though. It can be put to smart or stupid uses, like anything else. Huge monocultures of genetically modified corn are a bad idea. The way we’ve applied patent law to give Monsanto so much power is a bad idea. There are good ideas, though.

    Does anybody here know an insulin-dependent diabetic? Insulin is a protein, and the reason we have enough of it to use as a medicine is that somebody took the gene for insulin, inserted it into a single-celled organism, cultured that organism in huge vats, and separated out the insulin. The people who avoided blindness or amputation this way probably think it’s a fantastic idea.

    I would be very interested to know if the symptoms complained about by the prisoners are seen in vegetarians that eat a lot of veggie burgers. There’s a lot of soy in “meat” from fast food restaurants, too. The Roundup Ready soy we already eat does not produce pesticides, but the varieties in the rat feeding study produced either Roundup or another pesticide called Bt. Putting the pesticides INSIDE the corn is maybe not so bright.

    On the other hand, dismissing the entire technology because its most prominent users are evil is like dismissing the entire profession of psychology because psychologists help the government design its torture programs.

    What do people think corn is in the first place? It certainly isn’t naturally occurring in the form we recognize. Indians waited for useful genetic mutations to occur spontaneously. Is a large ear of corn conceptually different than a large salmon?

    Runoff from animal waste is profoundly disruptive to aquatic life, because it results in algal blooms whose decay sucks all the oxygen out of the water. Less phosphorous from pigs would be good. It would be much simpler to just stop eating pigs or any factory-farmed animals, but I doubt I’m going to convince anyone else to go vegan today.

    About the glowing cats…You do realize that people just got the Nobel Prize for the work that made the glowing cats possible, right? Animal research works because we’re evolutionarily related to everything else. Some aspects of our physiology are more similar to particular organisms than others, so different species are used as models for different things. We can attach GFP to particular proteins to find out how they’re trafficked in a cell. We can express GFP in particular cell types so that we can identify them under a microscope. If the molecular biology of cats is useful for studying a particular problem, it’s a useful proof-of-concept to show that we can adapt the technique to cats. It’s not “torture” for the cats. They’re ordinary cats, except parts of them glow green when you shine certain wavelengths of light on them. They’re born that way.

    Do people have any idea how much we have learned by being able to insert or delete genes in mice or fruit flies arbitrarily? It’s how we know what some genes do.

    It’s not as black-and-white as evil Dr. Frankensteins in lab coats destroying the world for Monsanto. Nobody worries about mutant mice or mutant fruit flies escaping into the wild, because you don’t HAVE to deliberately grow vast fields of these things out in the open to get rich.

  • Juana Elena

    The Mexicans, who eat ten times as much corn as Americans, are definitely not keen on GM corn, but the mutant kernels are ripening

  • Steve Michaels

    Marc,

    Let me quote your decidedly NON scientific statements:

    “Well, as a scientist I must do some defending here.

    1) Nothing wrong with genetic modifications.”

    WHY DO YOU SAY THIS? SUCH DOGMATIC AND UNSUBSTANTIATED STATEMENTS ARE WHOLLY UNSCIENTIFIC

    “2) We already share many (like 97%) of our genes with pigs and mice.”

    THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DORMANT GENES AND SPLICING ACTIVE GENES INTO ORGANISMS. ALSO THIS ARTICLE IS ABOUT GM FOOD NOT HUMAN DNA WHICH IS ALREADY PROVEN TO BE DEADLY BOTH LONG AND SHORT TERM.

    “3) Genetic engineering can be done safely and be well tested before being introduced to an environment.”

    CAN AND WILL ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. BP COULD HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE IN DRILLING FOR OIL BUT THEY WEREN’T. TOYOTA COULD HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE IN ACCELERATOR DESIGN BUT THEY WEREN’T. WHAT COULD BE IS NOT SCIENTIFIC JUSTIFICATION FOR ANYTHING.

    “4) All plants and animals that we eat have been genetically modified by selection by man (and animals) through history.”

    I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS STATEMENT IS MADE ACCIDENTALLY. THERE IS A QUANTUM DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SELECTIVE BREEDING AND INSERTING GENES INTO SPECIES THAT WOULD HAVE NEVER HAD THOSE GENES. YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO EQUATE THE ‘2 RECESSIVE BLUE EYED PARENTS WILL HAVE A BLUE EYED CHILD’ WITH PUTTING GENES IN CORN TO MAKE IT PRODUCE PESTICIDE (EMPHASIS ON ‘CIDE’) THUS MAKING IT POISONOUS OR PUTTING GLOW FISH GENES IN CATS TO MAKE THEM GLOW IN THE DARK.

    I used capitals not to ‘yell’ but to highlight more visually your statements and the comment about those statements. Simply Google ‘GMO Illness’ to find out what GM REALLY means to humans regarding food supply and safety as well as the increase in previously unheard of disease such as Morgellons. Use the scientific method if you wish to speak as a scientist and look at the facts and INDEPENDENT studies that have been done. Don’t act as if dogma is science. You sound like a Monsanto shill.

  • Oya

    This is very disturbing. Why is it when these “nazi-scientists” claim altruistic purposes for these acts against nature i.e., feeding the billions of starving, curing diseases etc., that this food ends up unlabeled in developed nation’s supermarkets where there is no massive hunger? Or, the diseases they claim these new developments are targeted are only spreading at an alarming rate and in younger and younger populations? The so-called “starving masses” in Africa and as recently as Haiti, refuse to eat the modified grains and corn Monsanto recently dumped there. They would rather die than eat their modified poison. We should be taking our cue from them. The arrogance of humanity who thinks they can “improve” upon what god has taken millions of years to create will be the death of us all, including the environment.

  • Lennie Pike

    Most scientists don’t win many points in the common sense department. For example, in the documentaries I’ve seen about Stonehenge, the explanation they have given has ranged from magnetic levitation to various forces learned from Aliens from outer space.

    On you tube there is a video showing one man by himself raising a 6ft.x6ft.x25ft. block of concrete to a vertical position from laying horizontally on the ground by placing a log underneath and across it in the middle and then like a seesaw, placing weights on one end to raise the other end a little, and then placing blocking under that end that was raised 1ft. Then back to the other side until that side is raised 1ft. Back and forth until the block is raised horizontally to a height almost equal to it’s length. From there it was easy for him to cause one end to fall so that the block wound up in a vertical position. All with out advanced Alien technology.

    Similar powers were given to the Incas to build Mach Pichu, NOT. There’s no way the perfect joints between the stone blocks were made with any technologies we have available to us today, NOT. The Incan Construction Project Manager instructed a worker, “this is your rough stone, your job and the job of your ancestors if you don’t finish it before you die, is to cause the edges of this stone to fit perfectly with the edges of this other guy’s stone here who will be working on his stone right next to you. Now begin.”

    2. So 97% of the genes of pigs and humans are the same. I’m not going to drink a glass of 97% water and 3% cyanide.

    3. Genetic engineering can be done safely? The only meaning that statement could have with certainty is that no one involved in the process of the engineering will be harmed assuming they don’t ingest anything. There is no way to know what the long or short term effects of genetic splicing will be. Also the chances that they will not be done safely or tested well are more likely, just take a look at the Pharmaceutical Industry.

    4. True all plants and animals we eat have been genetically modified by man (or by chance)through natural selection but it has been within God’ rules, no gene splicing was done. If a dog was forced by some weirdo to mate with a cat, no offspring was produced. The rules wouldn’t allow it.

    1. Nothing wrong with genetic modifications (allowed by God), I would believe.

    p.s. How did the man get the log under the block? Dug a trench for it, placed the log in the trench, and then dug the dirt out from under the block except for where the ends of the logs were, I would think. They did have shovels back then.

  • sharonsj

    I also view this as a matter of choice. I choose not to eat GMOs–except our corporate-bought Congress refuses to label food, so I don’t really have a choice, do I?

    There are studies that show eating GMOs is not good for you, but that never stopped a business from making money. As long as the people don’t count for anything, our voices won’t be heard about this or any other topic.

    The picture of that “thing” topping this article is what the average American will look like if that oil leak continues for 2 or more years. What BP has done is peirce the center of the earth making the oil leak unstoppable. Humans haven’t figured out how to control 100,000 pounds per square inch. Never mind the fact that it’s one mile below the surface. We couldn’t stop oil at that pressure even it was on a work bench in the shop. What’s amazing is that BP is bragging how deep they are drilling on the oil rig Atlantis 200 miles away. Humans did it to themselves this time, ruining everything. And the dopes in Louisiana are crying about not being able to drill for more oil due to O’Bama’s moratorium for 6 months on drilling. They are thinking only about the money they aren’t making. Now I know the meaning of the old phrase “money is the route of all evil”.

  • Jack

    Although people releasing chemically castrating corn is clearly a bad thing, can anyone here disagree that if science can invent horse-sized cats with wings, that we can ride around on and use as aerial transport then that is entirely a good thing?

    Come on NWO scientists. Invent the Winged Cats and i’ll happily pay through the nose for one. Just leave the toxic poison food alone and it’s all good.

  • Dave

    If GM is as safe as it’s cheerleaders tell us, how about they accept liability for any and all damages caused by the release of GMO’s, before they are allowed to release them?
    Find me one insurer who would take on this risk?There aren’t any.The truth is no one knows the consequences of release of GMO’s, short, mid or long term.
    Like the sorceror’s apprenctice Monsanto et al wave the wand with no thought other than making this quarter’s numbers.
    If BP can’t even control an oil spill, how can we trust the agro-business cartel to control a risk that can’t even be quantified?

  • ann

    Good morning all of you who seek to control everything and everyone on the planet.

  • Lennie Pike

    Ann: Are you taken?

  • Joe in JT

    Speaking of Monsanto, they will not rest until every seed is a terminator seed. You buy the 10 seeds in a packet from Wal-Mart for $19.99. You plant them in the ground and have to use Round-up or they won’t grow. Then next spring you do it all over again, because if you save seeds and try to replant, they won’t grow. If by some miracle you do grow a plant from saved seeds, Monsanto sues you and takes all your stuff.

  • X

    Just like in the days of Noah.

  • Lennie Pike

    Joe in JT:

    Your all so true scenario could only happen in the U.S. If Monsanto sued and arrived to take someone’s stuff in any other country for those reasons, 99% of the time the Sheriff or whoever tried it would get the crap beat of em. But 99% of other countries wouldn’t allow Monsanto to do what they do here in the first place. Must be something in the food supply that makes us so docile, trusting, and disconnected from reality. As a matter of fact I know from living in Brazil for the last year that is true. I could tell a huge difference in the way I (for loss of a better way to say it) was. All of the food I ate was old school.

  • April

    Marc the “scientist”: what is the difference between vertical inheritance and horizontal inheritance? As a scientist, can you describe this for us? Might shed some light here….

  • Asking guy

    U know my last coment is that even possible and can u make them shoot spider silk from their flowers

  • MK

    I, personally think that for the most part, there’s nothing wrong with genetic engineering. I, however, also believe that it’s possible to use this technology for evil actions. That’s what Monsanto’s doing. But half the things in this article aren’t even true! First off, I have no idea whether the spider goat thing is real or not but if it is, there isn’t anything wrong with it. It doesn’t hurt the goat and it helps us. Another thing is the glow in the dark cats. They are COMPLETELY NORMAL EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT THEY GLOW IN THE DARK!!! It’s almost like a person with a rare disease except that it doesn’t affect the cats. In fact, I don’t even think they notice it. Also, that picture of the monster hybrid thingamajig at the top is so fake and impossible to be made by humans. And speaking of which, we don’t even make animals. Allah does (Allsh is the arabic word for God. I’m Muslim so that’s why I say that.) Allah makes ad changes the creatures, not us

  • MK

    (Sorry ran out of room) like I was saying, Allah changes th food an animals, not us. Also, of you’re still skeptical about whether it’s wrong to genetically engineer food and animals because we’re playing God, do you really think that Allah would have created us without knowing what we were capable of? Of course he wouldn’t! Allah is Al-‘Aleem (the. Arabic word for all knowing). If we had the power if creation, why wouldn’t he have just created Adam and just have him create the rest of humanity! Why did he create Eve and make them have sexual reproduction? Because without him, we are incapable of ANYTHING! So we aren’t playing God. He is allowing it to happen as a test to mankind. As long as we don’t use genetics for evil purposes, by the way I’m not talking about anyone in particular (-> Monsanto) we will be fine. And if you want to learn more about Allah. Then find sources to learn about Islam. DON’T SEARCH ON THE INTERNET! They’ll just ell yo

  • MK

    ( sorry ran out of room again but I’m almost done) on the Internet, most sites will just feed you a bunch of lies. I suggest getting an English copy of the Quran. Anyway, genetics: good. Monsanto: bad. Feel free to respond to my comments 🙂 Finally done.

  • knifey

    i can’t even finish reading this ill informed point of view spawned by fear. it starts out as an objective commentary to get you in and then turns into a ridiculous mixture of fact and opinion. why not admit you don’t know what you’re talking about and are anti-gm at the start with your lack of qualifications and save us the time of reading this garbage.

  • animal luvr

    I can’t believe all you people saying gm animals and crops are okay because God is allowing it. He allows murder, is that okay? Just because He allows us to do things doesn’t mean they’re okay! Obviously you people know nothing about science, or else you would know it takes multiple tries to get an experiment perfect. The glow in the dark cat for instance. Do you honestly think they did that on their first try? Think of all those cats before the first successful one that probably ended up as miserable failures. And once they finally got it right, do you realize how many tests they would run on the poor cat? In my opinion, people should leave things like God made them instead of being selfish and cruel.

  • Mark

    Genesis 1:12, 21 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
