A Future of Genetically Engineered Children Is Closer Than You’d Think 1.8.2017 Mother Jones
The first step is a no-brainer. Say you are one of the tens of thousands of people with Huntington’s disease, a terrible, hereditary neurodegenerative disorder caused by a mutation in the HTT gene. The diseased version of the gene makes an abnormally long protein that becomes toxic in your neurons, eventually killing them. Symptoms usually […]

Scientists, theologians ponder if ‘new biology’ is more open to religion 31.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune

Then evolutionary theory was expanded with the insights of genetics, which gave further support for a scientific and secular view of how humans evolved. Faith and tradition were forced further onto the defensive. Now, exciting progress in biology in recent d...
