In both of these excerpts they talk of genetic engineering, but with what one is the right way to go about it? Both sides have numerous good points and arguments. Genetic engineering is a method that scientists use to clone things such as sheep back in the day. Today genetic engineering can help with diseases such as parkinson's. So the debate is to decide whether it is a good thing to take embryos or making them in a petri dish. To begin, in the first story "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley it is about the Dr. Frankenstein who is creating his monster.

In this video clip the both of them go back and forth arguing and making points on both sides of genetic engineering and if it truly is positive. In this quote Bill Nye is asking about the debate of embryonic stem cell research, "Some believe life begins the moment the first cell divides, so if the petri dish holds living cells, is it morally acceptable to redirect those cells and transform them into something they wouldn't otherwise become?" (Video Clip-Bill Nye). Bill Nye and Dr.Kahn both have really good points about the genetic engineering of embryos and doing so in a petri dish. Bill Nye definitely does not stand for the embryonic cell research while Dr. Kahn does. Dr. Khan seems to think that embryonic stem cell research is a good idea, since in the matter of the research it helps with diseases and injuries. While Bill Nye knows it is a helpful idea in science but not
