Post superhumans

Quote:
The late Stephen Hawking believed advances in genetic science would lead to a future generation of superhumans that could ultimately destroy the rest of humanity.

In newly published writings, Dr. Hawking suggested an elite class of physically and intellectually powerful humans could arise from rich people choosing to edit their DNA and manipulating their children’s genetic makeup.

Re: superhumans

They already exist except they aren’t so intellectually or physically powerful.

Re: superhumans

I find CRISPR editing technologies to be fascinating both in terms of disease mitigation and in the realm of medical ethics.
