The race towards an early grave or grace?

  1. Nov 21, 2004 #1
    Technology today is so focused on efficieny, proficiency and producivity. Cloning to create better humans, faster transportation, longer work-days and computerised everyday experience. Is it worth it?

    For anyone who believes in evolution: Have you created machines that we ourselves cannot live with due to lack of physical and mental strength?

    Technology is so concentrated on grace and human prosperity - in the form of machinery and ability to do as much as possible, as soon as possible. And the limits of possibility is constantly altered.

    I think technology will enable us to by pass the normal path of natural selection/mutation for humans (so far) so I am not sure the question is valid.
