Genetically Modified Foods
Hippies and new-agers don't always make the right call
A lot of people say they don't like the idea of putting "chemicals" in their body. Such a statement speaks so much ignorance that I barely know where to begin responding. Some people say we shouldn't play God. As I said in the section on human cloning, you better define God before claiming to know how he plays. Then you will have to prove that you know how God plays. Finally, you will have to prove that he doesn't want us to replicate his playing. Some people think it's just plain risky. Well you know what? So is riding an airplane. Deal with it. As a last possibility, perhaps you simply don't trust companies engaging in genetically modified food research. Well, on this point we are in total agreement, but I don't believe this warrants stopping such research. Instead I believe that it warrants doing the research properly.
