Does anybody know how long it would take to be actually able to engineer a human , from the base up , every characteristic . Is it going to happen in the next 10 to 20 years ? Wouldn't it be great to be able to design your offspring . Personally I think conventional conception is to random . It would be great , if we would able to decide if we want an 'out of this world' human being with awesome potential or an average 'no good' brat that would remain a nobody for the rest of his/her pitiful life . It is sad that many people consider human genetic engineering unethical . I understand that some of those people are concerned of the technology since it isn't fully developed ,but I don't understand those people who oppose because they think that it isn't the humanity's business t to tamper with nature . I guess if they want to limit themselves , that it is their business . Those people should understand that life is oftentimes tough especially for certain people who weren't as fortunate to be born healthy . HGE could change the way we are and the way we perceive the universe . Many people have given me the impression that only the best of people are capable of great accomplishments , average low-life people like me often are not able to realize their dreams . They have little influence on their destiny and eventually are going to remain serial material anyway , it doesn't matter how hard they try to be successfull. Many of those people would probably think differently if they realized how imperfect they are . I don't mean that HGE would be able create totally perfect people , but still ,there could be a more than significant difference between a regular person and an genetically engineered person . Superior people are often better of than the average person . Physically and mentally gifted people have advantage over it has often been that way . I hope that one day (as soon as possible) that Human Genetic Engineering and the other sciences are going to reveal the true(engineered) potential of the human race , and that I am not going to remain inferior for the rest of otherwise worthless existence .
