Heard on the news this morning that someone has brought up green pigs that glow in the dark. They brought it up as something funny. But there's nothing funny about it - it's horrible! What a violation and humiliation toward living creatures! Genetic modification - or as it more properly should be called - genetic manipulation - of this kind, experimenting with living, feeling creatures is a crime against the dignity that every living creature possess. We have no right to manipulate other creatures to serve our needs. All creatures have the same value. We must stop to act like we are some divine source, which may rule as it likes over other living creatures and over life itself. Because we are not the masters of nature, and we never will be. We are only human. One animal among others. That we are able to manipulate life, does not mean that we have the ability to foresee the consequenses of it. And this very disturbing development will in one way or another end in disaster. If perhaps not  echologically, then at least definitely ethically!
