The future of our race as a result of genetics is not known by anyone. We could
some day become a species of identical clones, as we could similarly become a
race that controls every aspect of life on this planet through genetics.
Wherever our species is headed, we believe that it is important for people
to think about the possibilities. Cloning technology is already upon us, as shown
with Dolly. We are in a time of decision making, and we must start thinking about
how we want our future to go. As was shown with the eugenics movement in the early
part of this century, things can go a terrible direction if we do not first think
about them. We are about to witness the beginning of a new century, and it appears
that a very similar situation may be upon us.
The future of our race is often explored, and many people come up with their
own views of where we're headed as a society. The science of genetics is still
fairly new, and an incredible amount of discoveries are yet to be uncovered. We
hope that you have been able to come up with some interesting ideas of your own
while reading the previous section.
The last discussion forum of this section has been set aside to allow you to
record your general thoughts of where all this genetics and modification of our
bodies at the genetic level is taking us. Please take a look at the other two
sections (An Ideal Society and Fountain of Youth), as we explore
even more ways that humans have tried, and are trying, to achieve perfection.
