  1. I heard about this not long after it happened, and I was glad to hear that basically the entire scientific community was so angry about it. Some science fiction stories, like Jurassic Park, often paint the scientists as coldly pursuing knowledge and "progress" without regard to any ethical wisdom, and it's easy to adopt that caricature as our actual view of the scientific community. But really, by exploring the possible ramifications of creating technologies without proper discipline to wield them, these sci-fi books and movies act as warnings against those mistakes, and remind us that there is a slew of philosophical considerations when bringing new ideas to fruition. These lessons and ideas are not lost on the real-world scientists, and there are strict ethical taboos that are condemned by just about everyone.

    tl;dr: it's nice to know that real-world scientists aren't at all morally oblivious like many sci-fi scientists. ^_^

  2. I’m reminded of an episode of Stargate where an advanced civilization call the Aschen gave them the ability to cure all diseases but secretly made them sterile. Stargate Season 4 episode 16. Gene editing could be an amazing prospect but could also be our downfall.

  3. When you were crushing on Doctor Mike before seeing this… Then realize he's into the same kind of critical thinking as you. 🥰🥰🥰

  4. The world already is divided into social/financial accessability…. stem cells for cancer treatment for example… theyre still researching it, but if it does come out as a worldwide available treatment, how much will it cost over the standard chemo and radiation? I anticipate that so many will still be forced to opt for the chemo and hope for the best…

  5. Geneticists are far away from using CRISPR for editing human DNA. We are still trying to figure out what each part of the human genome does for the body in the first place.

  6. As an engineer, I can't say that I'm terribly concerned about CRISPR. However, you are the expert more closely related to this field, so you may have insight I'm not aware of.

    I think we need to have a serious conversation about this technology, and we need to do a better job,of informing the public and discussing the moral arguments for the use of this technology.

  7. I don’t understand 😩 can someone explain to me (not being all rude) what all this gene edited crispr mean !!??

  8. Sadly, I’m not surprised. I’ve been aware of this travesty in the scientific community for a decade now. I first caught word of this research in its infancy in 09. 23andme is the real evil. They’re banking our young DNA to age reverse all of us so we will be over populated, malnourished and living in Hell on earth. That’s where you should be focusing your concerns on at the moment.

  9. Zombie movies, jurassic park movies, Captain America. I want to be genetically engineered to be a super soldier but if my body becomes stronger, SO DOES Bacteria and viruses.

  10. We will just end up with alot more superbugs and supervirises. The geneticly altered humans will still get the bugs and viruses but they won't get symptoms. While the bugs and viruses are in their systems they will mutate to become super viruses and bugs. So essentially becoming a huge super incubator for mutations. This sounds like a bad zombie movie

  11. Just a curious soul. At 1:41 you said that HIV is no longer the deadly disease that it used to be. Is it true that HIV can be cured? As I said, I am just curious. I love your content and the way you present them. Good job.

  12. you talked about movies, all I could think of was 'Repo the Genetic Opera'. good movie, musical, I would suggest you watch it.

  13. Doctors and government's don't want cures, they want expensive "treatments". Why cure someone when you can turn them into a cash cow, and milk money out of them for the rest of their miserable lives.

  14. I hate to say this but chimera's, genetically altered diseases, already have been worked on by the Soviets in the cold war at the biopreparat facility. They had to use cruder methods than we have now but if they could find a way to alter a disease to make it a better bioweapon they did. Ken Alibeks autobiography is a good look into some of the things that they were working on.

  15. It can go really terrible and I am scared, but I felt we can't get out of this planet unless we do this gene editing.

  16. I think this is a good thing. I mean, even if those kids die as a result we probably learned something from their lives so at least it wouldn't be in vain… Gotta look at the positives…

  17. -"So you've discovered gene modification?"
    -"Yes"
    -"How did you use it, super strenght? Super intelligence? Curing cancer?"
    -"No, safer sex"
    Good job humanity🤦‍♂️

  18. I essentially agree with you except for the argument of inequality. I live in a country where everyone has access to every diagnostic or therapeutic action paid with our taxes all around the country. Given the case this would be proven to work, my country would finance the treatment for anyone in need

  19. You are talking about a “Chinese” scientists. They don’t care about ethics. The doctors over there steal alive humans organs.
