Church against technology to create human master race
New scientific technologies should not be used to create a master race of humans, a leading member of the Church of Scotland warned last night. Dr Donald Bruce, the director of the Kirk’s society, religion and technology project, said advances in nanotechnology - which involves manipulating materials at molecular level - could be hugely useful in treating people with cancer and helping disabled people to regain use of their limbs.
But he warned against its potential to create a superhuman soldier or otherwise "enhanced" humans, who could be made stronger, faster and even more intelligent.
