Again, apropos of today's main blog, there's this poem - one of my favorites in fact - by C.S. Lewis, and one might substitute the word "evolution" with "genetic engineering":

Evolutionary Hymn by CS Lewis

Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in patristics from the University of Oxford, and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science, and "strange stuff". His book The Giza DeathStar, for which the Giza Community is named, was published in the spring of 2002, and was his first venture into "alternative history and science".

    I dunno Doc. This poem kinda creeps me. Feels like he’s worshipping at the same altar as Galton and Darwin.

    I fear we did NOT ask the right questions!!! 😉 A child will assimilate the environment he or she grows up in!! At age 75 I can look back & see that I was handed a Belief System on a platter & tried to stick with it for 70 years with disastrous results!!

    Better to be taught to Question Everything than to remain Caged for Life within a Belief System just because that is what one has been raised in!! 😉 IMO

      That was the Lewis author;
      Lewis Carroll, aka, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
      His most famous work? Alice In Wonderland.
      The theme?
      Question authority!

      Always question authority.

    “Social Darwinism” was all the rage in the early 20th century, going hand in hand with “scientific materialism” (actually unscientific). Now, as those dogmas further decline, there are still people who dress them up in new-ish language and plough on through the Sea of Academia, until they hit a quantum iceberg.

      …until they hit a quantum iceberg.
      Loved it!

    Apparently evolution is commanding. But lead us? Perhaps, when used in the genetic engineering sense; which leads to the hidden hand of corporations. But whose the brain/mind commanding the market capitalist hand?

    Survival is the means to a new beginning; by whatever ends necessary. All to carry on the selfish gene’s DNA. An endless staircase; from whence, to where?
    By whose design? To win by ends justified by any means?
    Is this a Godly pursuit?
    What will we become; if past is human, and the future is not? Will evolution see to it, that we believe, because there is a God? Our maker? In our own image?

    The line I liked the most is:

    By evolving, Life is solving
    All the questions we perplexed.

    But, did we really?
    ASK the right questions?
