Exclamation Would It Be Ethically And Technologically Wise To Artificially Direct Human Evolution

Humans are on the verge of taking over their evolutionary development artificially. So far, human attempts at this have amounted to little more than accidental happenstance and blind tinkering, but that may be soon to change. Will we begin to direct our own evolution by our own design and leave the days of natural selection in the dust? Will homosapiens finally produce homosuperiors? Is this ethically and technically wise?

We've been doing it for as long as I can remember. Natural selection carries on as it always has.

And which way to go with it. It would be useless to pursue an evolutionary dead end.

It's always amazing to see science catch up to science fiction. If not terrifying.

Humans stopped adapting to the world a long time ago, instead we force the world to adapt to us.

Now we're learning how to adapt our bodies to vulnerabilities, and seriously look at ways of making those changes permanent (DNA manipulation).

It may not be "wise" to rush ahead with that penis enlargement yet ... your grandkids might grow Forehead Tittaes.

... bah

Human brains will evolve to rely on technology and if technology fails, the average (first world country) human will be "lost" on how to survive or go about their daily life. They will spiral into an incompetent state of not knowing their heads from their assholes. Homo-Superior, I think not.

Also, the internet and technology that makes it possible for people to be there 24/7 will ensure a future of Homo-Inferior, socially retarded dumb fucks.

I'm just ranting though.

Its ethically idiotic. End of story. Unless of course you think Hitler had the right idea and you want to bring back his concept of a master race, playing god with genetics. And if you really think you're smart enough to get it right, its probably an indication you're not.
