First and foremost, the behaviors of each boy may be directly related to biological factors, because of past experiences. It is a part of life that there are superior moments, and bad moments as well. However, in most cases the bad moments are what shape us as humans today. In the article, “Past Experience is Invaluable For Complex Decision Making,:” it
Dictatorships are tailored to the interests and beliefs of their leaders. Despite such rules being the most obvious examples of faults within controlling regimes, even other types of governments can marginalize and control a group. The story Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence, the background information states, “From 1910-1970, many children of mixed Aboriginal and white descent were taken from their families by the government in an effort to train them to fit into white Australian culture. ” They believed that by taking children from their families and training them to “fit into white Australian culture”, their society would be better. Australia was not the only country to do this.
Many great things can be accomplished through genetic engineering, but scientific progress is being halted by the opposition 's use of arguments with questionable logic. Most notably is their fear of designer babies. The problem with designer babies is that complex beneficial traits such as height, strength, intelligence, and attractiveness aren’t determined by one gene, and are also dependent on many other variables that aren’t genetic. Some traits such as the shape of an earlobe, eye color, or an individual’s susceptibility to certain diseases are determined by a single gene, and that specific gene can be identified and isolated by scientists. Professor of translational epidemiology at Emory University, Cecile Janssens states, “Even when all genes and their complex interactions are completely understood, our ability to use gene editing for favorable traits will remain limited because human traits are just not genetic enough.” (Janssens).
Conjoined twins live every second of their lives as one, which immediately provokes questions about not only intimacy, but more centrally, identity and personhood. Are conjoined twins separate people? Should they be separated when medically possible? Current science and mainstream thinking categorizes conjoined twins as their own individuals primarily because they have separate cognitive abilities, the medical community characterizes them as such, and it has become society’s status quo.
We have learned ever since we were introduced to statistics that outliers don’t just fit in. In Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, these people gain a new definition: they do fit in. So much, in fact, that people shape their own lives to become an outlier. We idolize them and crave to be as successful as them, while they are really just the same as each one of us. What makes them true outliers is a combination of fate, fortune, and fervor.
If there is Genetic Engineering then everyone 's genetics with be very similar, and there wouldn’t be very many people that are different from one another. “At bottom every man knows well enough that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time.” (Friedrich Nietzsche). This quote is trying to say that if Human Genetic Engineering did exist then every man and women in the world would start to feel like they are not unique in their own way and humans will basically start being like robots that, when at birth they already know what they are good at and what they will become in the future. Their will start to be people that are discriminating against other people that are not Genetically
A quote is, “Empathy might seem like a hard-to-define, touchy-feely idea, and it’s fair to say that most of us don’t spend our days wondering if we’re empathetic. Yet psychologists have been trying to measure empathy for decades, recognizing its inherent value to humanity. A world without empathy, they say, is a world we wouldn’t want to live in.” (O’Brien 1). This quote explains that many people don’t really think about empathy, but wouldn’t want to live in a world without it. This proves my point because if the world had no empathy, no one would want to live in it causing unhappiness and violence.
Although vision and hearing may be at risk, the people are otherwise completely healthy and have organs that still work without any medical drug. Many people may look at those with this disease and look at them with a weird look, just because they look different. These kids and adults may get treated different socially by those looks. The treacher Collins syndrome happens to 1 out of every 50,000 people which is extremely rare. The disease is a negative mutation because it is possible to have a loss of vision and hearing
In the journal The American Biology Teacher, Maura C. Flannery states "If 100 seeds were planted at the same time, they won 't all sprout on the same day." she then continues "There are always surprises due to individual differences in organisms. Yet, When we teach we often forget this variation." The government’s perspective on their citizens can connect to the quote. They expect everyone under the law to be equal physically and mentally, but they’re do not realize how different everyone
These differences are slowly converging now. However, physical differences do exist. Genetically men are better adapted genetically to perform physical tasks. Therefore, the assumption that women can match men in everything is clearly flawed. From the start of civilization as we know has always had the men to the physically challenging work like going hunting and going for wars.
