It is not beyond reason to believe that the human personality comes about largely by way of genetics. A gene that indicates extreme aggression and violent behavior has already been found. Many believe that they will find that homosexuals are born that way (genetic). Physical appearance is without a doubt genetic. Intelligence does run in families, and in all animals, intelligence can be bred for. So intelligence must also be genetic in the same way physical strength is.
So it might someday be practical to select the very best traits from your own genetic line. Fertilize say 1000 of your own eggs, then genetically test them all and keep only the ones with the most desirable traits. All your children would be physically strong, healthy, relatively intelligent to very intelligent. You could discard all of the embryos that have potentially violent, overly aggressive personalities, or who could overly passive and lazy. Transsexuals of course would be screened ou as just another defect. And homosexuals do not lead the best of lives on average, so we all know that most parents would screen out such future problems. Few parents want to think they will never have grand children.
Near perfect people, a better more peaceful world. Higher IQ's and far less in the way of medical or mental issues.
Can you say no to this future would? If so why would you stop science from improving the human race?
What are your thoughts?
