Perfect Children?

With the advances in technology that has happened over the last 20, 10, 5 or even last year, parents are able to find out so much about their children before they are even born.  Within a few years it seems that it is going to be possible to be able to genetically engineer a baby.  Scientist are saying that they will be able to determine all sorts of traits. (Listen to a NPR report here.)

What do you think about designing your child or grandchild?  What ethical concerns do you have genetically engineering a baby?  How would it affect humanity if we could eliminate handicapped babies from being born?  How does your spirituality affect the way that you view this issue?

unTapped is a conversation about faith and spirituality. There are many people frustrated by being forced to think of faith in the same old patterns, and would prefer to explore spirituality in different ways.

Anything goes here. No matter where you are or who you are, we want to hear from you. Feel free to join in the conversation!

You can also join us in person, every Thursday night at Short's Brewing Company in Downtown Bellaire, MI.
