When Does Man Become God?


Some scientists argue over creation and evolution and they argue did man create god or did god create man. And without that ongoing and predictable out of debate, lets discuss our scientific advancements. When does Man cross the line and become a god? Or a creator or modifier of life to such a degree that he has changed the entire current scenario? Take this interesting development. To make ethanol better, simply modify the corn more. Call it Super Corn after this has been done. And regarding mosquitoes, modify them too, and then you have no malaria

http://parthe.net/_cwg0802/0000006c.htm

or West Nile Virus at all? Genetically modified Mesquites to hang out next to genetically modified corn and eaten by genetically modified bats who are hardly bothered by the genetically modified people whose mitochondria DNA is modified so they do not need oxygen as much therefore the problems of pollution are not important and no one gets malaria?

http://www.gene.ch/gentech/2001/Dec/msg00097.html and

http://www.gene.ch/gentech/2001/Dec/msg00096.html .

Interesting the possibilities? But playing god means you need to have all your ducks in order and understand the nature of things, then you can slowly fix the problems of out put. For instance much of the ethanol manufacturing process can be changed by modifying the corn to use less water and produce less CO2. Everyone wins and the bugs will just have to learn to eat something else, or allow them to eat the parts of the corn which make the most CO2 in the manufacturing process meaning they will not eat as much other crops and therefore less pesticides are used which are poison and will not take the toll on the water supply, unwanted mold and algae growths, soil or peoples livers.

And while you are at it you could make people smaller and more efficient especially if we are predicting the Earth's population to surpass 60 Billion by 2075 a date when most of us will still be alive judging by advances in medicine and life expectancies. We know for sure without a catastrophic event our children will for sure still be around to see this. So there will be a different mind set then and also different values and for the species to continue and still feed everyone it maybe necessary for such modification to be considered even if it is decided against. Just some thoughts to ponder.
