    World's First GM Babies Born

    The world's first geneticallymodified humans have been created, it was revealed last night.

    The disclosure that 30 healthy babies were born after a series of experiments in the United States provoked another furious debate about ethics.

    Personally, I consider this excellent news and I am disappointed in the Mail that they only chose to print quotes from people opposed to such measures. Because of this scientific breakthrough, thirty families have been blessed with children they could not otherwise have had.

    As an artist I do. The same part of the brain responsible for depression is the same part that deals with creativity. Who seriously wants to have a chronically depressed kid? So you start screwing around with one issue don't be terribly surprised if another thing goes too.

    That's ridiculous. What does this have to do with art or the lack thereof?

    You are sure making some sweeping statements based on no evidence.

    If it works to eliminate nasty genes that cause things like Alzheimers, cancer, heart disease, high cholesterol, cellulite, male pattern baldness, Gingers, and bad eyesight, then I can get behind it.

    I read the article and don't remember seeing them tinker around with the part of the brain that controls depression.
