And for realsies... i'd be fucking AMAZED if there aren't legit chinese super babies in a fucking lab somewhere.

And 98% of them have birth defects and it's generally an atrocity because chinese medicine is a complete crock of mystical shit.

But hey... that's how they do.

Like every Chinese construction project the clock is ticking until it fails from shitty base materials.
LOL nah bro.

Like every chinese "Engineering Feat", it's actually just a direct copy of something from the west. The only thing this guy engineered is finding some rhodes scholar sperm donor and some Ukrainian jewess supermodel to donate an egg.

Kid comes out looking like an Aryan godling and TADA!! Chinee science! Love you long time.

I wouldn't say it ruined their lives. The next couple of years after they get out of the camwhore bidness... but their lives is a bit of a stretch.

It's a fucking meat grinder in every sense. In very many ways it's like the college sportsball for skinny chicks who don't mind putting things in their vagoo on camera. That's how i've come to think of it at least.

For the good ones there is athleticism involved in it.

I dont think 4chan gives a fuck about Boxxy anymore, and they were off the hook rabid. Hell they used to say a girl who did porn ruined her life, but the Hoe cycle moves so fast now I cant find videos online of 'famous' porn girls from 6 years ago. If it aint making money the search engines dont find it anymore.

So, should the US create our own superbabies? Is creating superbabies moral or immoral? Will humans need superbabies to survive the common climatocalypse? Inquiring minds want to know.
No. As far as the ching-chongs are concerned we ALREADY produce superbabies. Except in America, we just call them "babies".

All their CRISPR magic is aimed at producing chinese babies that look as white as their mother was AFTER her plastic surgery----essentially it's to avoid embarassing situations like these:

Its dangerous and the religious stance is that it is without question immoral. I heard a great definition of sacred the other day, I forget where. "Sacred indicates an idea which we have all agreed is beyond discussion." That's pretty damn close to exactly right. For the religious it will always be a sacred issue.

The ethics of it are themselves highly debatable. We place a value on human life, perhaps not a sacred value but a value all the same, and whatever method we arrive at will be arived at through trial and error. So the ethical question you have to ask yourself boils down to "do the ends justify the means". It's really a very simple question, and the challenge is to get the means narrow and safe enough that they can justify the ends.

Edit: So yeah, I think we actually can get the method that narrow and yeah, I think we'll have genetailored superbabies in a few generations. But I don't think it's gonna be like GATTACA. I think it's a much more robust system than common perception would have it. You can probably choose trivialities like hair color, eye color, how about we make sure this baby DOES NOT have cystic fibrosis... you can breed out defects I would expect. It will be more difficult to breed in a desired (vague) trait. But I bet they will figure out how to breed in certain traits... like increasing the carrying capacity of oxygen in the blood. Regulate lifetime heart rate. Stuff like that.

Sacred? These people have already proven they will vote for the most profane man in America. They can't claim anything is sacred anymore.
