Why was he banned?
RIP Nazara... I knew you for a couple months and you were funny... Nevermore :'(
LOL at the pic :)
I apologize for how long I've taken to respond.
This is a link to an article I found on the negative affects of technology on children. I believe that it supports many of my ideas that you disputed before: Personal.psu.edu
These are links to articles from the "Cracked" website regarding the potential negative effects of genetic engineering: (the "Africanized Honeybee" or "Killer Bee" is what I'm talking about): Cracked.com and Cracked.com
On genetic engineering and cloning:
I have to admit, part of what deters me from genetic engineering and cloning is morality - I am a Christian after all.
However, there is certainly more to it than that. Take the Killer Bees for example:
Beekeeper Warwick E. Kerr didn't want to create an evil super-aggressive nightmare bug that he could use to take over the world, he just wanted a normal honeybee that could survive in the jungle.
His intentions were purely to enhance efficiency and make some aspect of life easier. But it didn't work out that way; he made mistakes that are still affecting us several decades later.
These bees are extremely aggressive, extremely territorial, they spread rapidly, and while there may be a low death:attack ratio, their attack rate will increase as they spread.
[An infographic on Killer Bees]: Propacificbee.com
My point is that, considering the cause and effect proportionally, it took very little (cross-breeding two creatures that naturally would never have encountered each other) to yield an extreme result (A significantly more dangerous creature that is rapidly spreading across the Western Hemisphere, and that we - its creators - still have no practical way of stopping).
What if this is consistent in human-level engineering? That is to say, if we want to manipulate human beings (creatures that can obviously have a much more profound effect on the world than honeybees), and we make a large enough mistake, how severe might the consequences be?
Finally, I'd like to clarify the intended meaning behind what I wrote before:
I don't think that human beings are simply in-compatible with a certain level of technology (though I do believe that may be possible), what I believe is that technology is advancing at a much greater rate than society's ability to understand it, and that because of peoples lack of understanding, much of the technology that does exist is "severely misused."
Again, I'm sorry for taking so long to respond.
Your an evil genius... indoctrination through cuteness >.<
