What happens when we become "God"?

    Humans are doing genetic research on enormous scales. Do you want your baby to have brown or blonde hair? Weed out genetic imperfections? We have created computers and humanistic robots on an exponential scale. We have cloned life on this planet. We have put vehicles on other planets. We could put people there, send genetic material, or play with the genetics of the indigenous life.

    What if they write their own book of Genesis. Humans are their God(s).

    Does it expose our own past?

    Does every "Church" that claims to be "spokes people" for God get exposed as frauds?

    How will we treat the first/next world?

    How did the previous treat us? Nurture and leave? Still around?

    You can see how close we are to a full circle. The moment we set foot on a new world ...

    If genetic engineering means we can prevent Down Syndrome, muscular Dystrophy, cystic fibrosis and haemophilia think of the heartache that would save.

    Before we go to other planets we have a few problems here to sort out first. The thought of us finding an earthlike planet and pouring pollution into its oceans, damaging the ozone layer and heating it up until its ice caps melt just so we can keep manufacturing more and more stuff horrifies me. If there is a more advanced alien race out there they should ground us until we grow up.

    If mankind does morph over to another planet, it will have the structured social morality established within that advancing civilization.

    Mankind has acquired much knowledge over the centuries from the time of the ancients era, not only knowledge of the physical world in which we live in but also knowledge of the psychological make up of are selves, regarding and respect toward human rights and obligations.

    Despite what some fear mongering religious publishing organizations say (JWS) humanity is much more loving , concerned and empathetic to humanity in general than in the past.

    You've got to remember WireRider that " all gods " were mostly derived and created inherently out of human ignorance by man as necessary needed answers to the world in which he lived, as well toward the wants and desires by mankind toward bettering the living experience that mankind had to endure.

    This human endeavor to connect to outside supernatural agents still continues to this day in present organized religions .
