Hey my name is Ingrid and I have begun a project paper, which deals with the problem of manipulation of plant genes, and whether it is ethical correct to interfere in that evolution as has lead to the world we live in today.
I give below a small paper and then put up some questions. Everyone's opinions on the subject are welcome and will be considered to equal intelligence, anonymously of course.
We all know the story of evolution and how our whole world has evolved from being a minimal particle in the universe, to the society we know and live in today. Nature has always found a way and developed the best possible way to what benefits the world. But what if it can be done better? What if anyone with a simple manipulation of plant genes can eliminate famine world over? The two issues are only a few of the oceans of new ethical questions about whether we should change the world’s own way to adapt.
Is it okay to manipulate the world, or should we just sit silently and look at the care of it selves? Is manipulation of plant genes only ethically correct when it helps people, and where does it boundary between it, and possibly ruin our ecosystem? What can the consequences of genetic manipulation be, and how are we possibly to pay for it?
I do very much hope there will be some good debate provoking arguments on the case, it will help me much
Thank you sincerely, Ingrid
