    Oh I wasn't suggesting eugenics as a better alternative. Just that it's not as simple as throwing a switch and turning off a single trait. I am in agreement about gene therapy, and my thesis research is actually focused on gene therapy/transplantation and it's relevance to the prevention and possible cure of a specific type of cancer. Gene therapy advocate.

    Eugenics is already naturally at play via sexual selection, so there's no need for a top-down implementation. How do you think different hominids ended up differentiating? How do you think different humans populations have such different physical features (some of that is explained by natural selection, but it's mostly sexual selection)?
    I think we should let nature take its course, because top-down eugenics is clearly a policy which most people find repugnant (me included), thus not socially optimal,

    Eugenics is BS because it's blinkered.

    If all you contribute to humanity is your genes then either start procreating or go curl up somewhere. Certainly don't post on internet forums. Such has nothing to do with genetics and is obviously a waste of time!!

    Of course that is BS as well. I don't recall people being given medals for siring brilliant children, they tend to give the medal to the children for being brilliant. Obviously you would have lots more to address than just reversing the prejudice against eugenics.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Your own post is BS?

    Well, I like the idea of eugenics because it involves thinking seriously about the past and future and your role in that and contribution, even if its "only" your genes, there's little in the way of anything asking people to perform as more than a consumer meeting their own needs and putting those needs ahead of everything else.

    I still really don't understand where you are going with this. Could you explain further why someone's biology -- something having nothing to do with merit whatsoever -- is better in some way than merit and conscious choice and hard work? I'm still trying to understand this last sentence of yours, and it seems almost like two different thoughts put together by accident...

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
