First and most important rule in the bioengineering book:
No rule in this book shall be written with religious issues.

LOL Real Buffalo Chicken. I've never had buffalo so I don't know I'd like it but it would be novel. If they hurry and get to a point they can combine animals and plants traits we can throw some peppers in there and make it spicy too! True to the name Buffalo Wings!

So you know that bio-engineering could eliminate sickle cell disease? And that Bio-engineering has already lead to the creation of insulin for diabetics?

It's an animal. As long as they don't cross breed with human dna, or increase intelligence to the human level, I'm not bothered.

p.s. I would love for parts of me to glow in the dark.

The only concern to me is that the animals are treated humanely and that they are not intentionally made to suffer (tests they know will cause the animal pain). If at some point complications arise that put the animal in suffering it should be humanely put down to avoid more suffering. Past that it's not a far stretch more than using them for sustenance.

There is the religious aspect, "playing god" but realistically he gave us the smarts to get here and told us to use the animals as we needed. Who's to say he's not completely happy with our progress? Rhetorical of course I know there are a boatload of arguments on both sides and I don't want to fully open that can of worms.

By all means we should be cautious but any moron can stop and realize that we will need new sources of increased food and production OR we will need to impose forced limits to human procreation like China. The simple fact is at the rate we are growing we will soon begin to run short on re

pretty sure that some of them are just bred together, but I still do wonder if the pics are photoshoped, and the "glow in the dark" animals are modified before they are born, so you cant change half way thru ur life, lots of plants are already GM but its not like they are gonna kill us, insects dont think completely different from other animals, they cant control the rat, only influence, wish i had three arms

I just think that this guy is simply spreading fear and misunderstanding (but it still is important to set down important ethic laws)
please feel free to comment if i have something wrong

hell yeah we should be allowed to do this! why not? if we can change their genome we can make them genetically happy to do things for us. have you never seen the restaurant at the end of the universe? lol

Until they can perfect gene therapy this doesn't mean dick to me! You can mod every child and animal in the world but if I can't be modded who cares.

It's kind of a joke to think someone would have a problem with housing animals as company property used for manufacturing considering that right now we basically house them and kill them and eat them or run tests on them.
