I’ve been reading a bit more about what this entails – I hate mosquitoes and live in a very buggy area, but I can also understand being wary of disrupting ecosystems, especially in an area where we don’t generally have to worry about fatal diseases from mosquitoes.
What do you think – is genetically modifying mosquitoes akin to “playing God”?
Also, do you think one’s understanding of evolution will impact their views on this? (i.e. would someone who believes in 6,000-year-old special creation be more averse to “messing with God’s design” than someone who believes things have been evolving for eons? I kinda wish Pew had included that question in their survey.)
