Ever since the humans started to evolve and colonise larger area of Earth, mass extinction of other Earth inhabitants slowly become a common event. Wherever there is humankind, there will bound to be losses of species native to that particular to that environment. This characteristic has been observed and proven by archaeological evidence.
Now, the humans are infiltrating Earth, the only place which life forms can call "home". Man's destruction of the Earth has led the loss of great numbers of species, and this action can never be justified. Who is Man to rule over all other life forms and decide their fates? What rights does Man possess over the other organisms when every Earth inhabitants is viewed at equal status in the eyes of Gaia?
Despite all these, Man still continues to invent new technologies to ruin the Earth, just because Gaia was benevolent and naive enough to believe that Man will turn over a new leaf. However, he was so deeply blinded by his impossible ambition to be the Ruler of Earth that he will resort to anything to make it come true. Man has invented genetic engineering and has been deploying this biotechnology to create a biological havoc that will destroy him one day. His manipulation of genetic materials in organisms for his sole interests will eventually land him in a very pathetic state, a state that he may never recover from for eternity.
Now, let explore more into the field of Genetic Engineering, in relation to the case study of genetically modified crops.
