Thanks, Fran~ A thought provoking post.

Particularly the closing which includes:
1. Science can go too far. ie: Frankenfoods like those consumed by Americans that make them obeses and prone to cardiovascular disease. These foods certainly make big profits for their makers and do a lot for the pocketbooks of doctors but for those who consume them consequences are dire.
2. Actions Have Consequences
3. If you try to play God you’ll get yourself in trouble

Genetic engineering could have some very bad consequences.

I think the author never read the book and just saw the movie as he describes an ambitious but diabolical scheme, but in the book as Watson is the narrator we never see this. actually the article represents the same egotistical desire to reinvent, an argument, similar to what the scientist described in the article attempt.
