The Next Step in Human Evolution

The Next Step In Human Evolution

By Elton Camp

Since human genes have been mapped
To new possibilities they have to adapt

Perhaps there will come a new way
One’s genetic instructions to convey

Genes composed of  A, T, G and C
May be sent just as quick as can be

Desired qualities they can then pick
Avoid those able to make a child sick

For a uterus there will be no need
Into a replicator the genes feed

Then will come an electronic whirl
And out will pop a baby boy or girl

    Well, I guess if we can prevent congenital defects, it's worthwhile... Terry

    Serious birth defects and genetic disease are rare, but a real tragedy when they do appear. The technology described here is unlikely ever to become a reality. I can imagine a fertilized egg someday being brought to term in some sort of incubator or even in a nonhuman surrogate. Elton
