As genetic technology continues to advance, what happens when we try to create or eliminate certain characteristics for our children? What are the potential unintended consequences with fiddling with our DNA? Should humans be “playing God”? Lisa Ortuno, a Sinai and Synapses Fellow, explores those questions through a series of interviews, asking several experts, “Are we more than our genes?”
As humans have gained increasing control over their environment, what are our new moral and religious responsibilities? How can we bring awareness of our changing role in the world to our environment? How does our creative nature mirror God’s?
These are a few of the questions that this Sinai and Synapses Discussion Forum explores.
