915 West Hastings Street

Should we cure down syndrome? Should we have the power to select embryos to reduce the child’s risk of inheriting potentially fatal diseases? What to do with the unselected? If we had the power to make humans better, more intelligent, smarter and stronger, should we use it? What does it mean to be fully human?

Company of Disciples and Centre for Inquiry Present Meeting of the Minds: Genetically Modified Humans. During this evening, you will be presented with the current science involved in genetic engineering followed by a theist and atheist presentation from Jonathan Chan and Pat O’Brian who will be responding to the questions above.

Registration is $5 online and $10 cash at door.
