Genetic Engineering Will Change Everything Forever – CRISPR

Designer babies, the end of diseases, genetically modified humans that never age. Outrageous things that used to be science fiction are suddenly becoming reality. The only thing we know for sure is that things will change irreversibly.

  2. The Saint says:

    The Antichrist will be a GMO human

  3. The Dark Age of Technology begins today…

  4. Crispr must get ban because in my religion somethings like that is apocalyps sign

  5. blood moon says:


  6. Man I wish I would've been born genetically modified!!

  7. Cerberus LOL says:

    Maybe this has something to do with the great filter in the fermi paradox…

  8. Abortion should absolutely be banned, if for no other reason than that it makes it easier for people to cull the "undesirables". But the fact that abortion ends a human life is enough reason to stop it.

  9. Hmmm… Now how do I convince my partner to have our children like this? I am perfectly fertile and have no reason to think he isn't. There is already natural super-children but personally I know my aunt on my fathers side has fertility problems though she is nearly 40 now and it my aunt on my mums side got over breast cancer a few years ago. Mum also got a cist on one of her ovaries but that went away. She had her tubes tied after my little sister deciding she had enough kids so she was going to have it removed but the cist had disappeared. My little sister is non-verbal autistic. I know I didn't inherit the cystic fibrosis gene and I can process folate just fine where my elder sister with a different father has a problem with it and is bi-polar. I am epileptic however it is not genetic in my case.
    I've got my mothers height (5ft, 7), not sure where I got my eyes from because while they are blue both of my parents wear glasses and I don't as do all of my other sisters though my little sister won't wear hers. My aunt on my dad's side doesn't have glasses so probably Dad's. So 5ft7 tall for a girl but shorter than the average guy. Blonde hair like my Dad and a weird combination of their noses with my Dad's bridge & my mothers sides kind of. Dad's 6ft'2. I get my hourglass from his side of the family. We are usually more genetically similar to our fathers than our mothers which is why all girls should also send paternal if you can to DNA testing (guys you don't have to as you're xy). I do have the family anxiety though, that's genetic.
