For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:13-14 ESV
Coming back today from visiting the Arizona Memorial we had to catch a flight from Oahu back to Kauai where we are staying. One thing I tend to do in airports is buy magazines I rarely read. Today I purchased a photography magazine and a copy of the latest Popular Science, October 2012. Popular Science is one of those magazines I cab take or leave, mostly leave but this issue had a drawing of the US Navy’s newest stealth destroyer the Zumwalt.
As I was reading through the magazine I came upon an article titled Human Resources, Can we re-engineer ourselves to cope with climate change? Essentially it was some what ifs from a NYU bioethics professor and colleagues Two of the ideas were to use in-vitriol fertilization to produce shorter people or maybe to develop drugs to cause people to be allergic to red meat. Both would help limit our impact on the environment.
While admitting how preposterous these and other ideas are they still pleased withe these “thought experiments.” What bothers me is if and when something like this is actually proposed, who will make the decisions to move forward? In other words, who will play God? And what about those who do not want to go along?
When men try to mess or improve on what God created we always end up in trouble. Someone gets hurt and those making the decisions for others always get exempted from the changes. Personally if God thought His creation was good then that is good enough for me. I will take my chances with God, leave me out of the better designed man I can only see trouble there.
Have a blessed day,
