Second, I think this is naturally where science, biology and genetics have been going for a long time. Right or wrong is going to be up to the individual to decide, but I think that somewhere, sometime, someone will eventually start life from scratch, clone a human being and many other things that bring up moral or religious questions. Like every other development in science, morals, religious dogma and people will usually adapt to the new discoveries.
And as far as 'end times' goes. We have been hearing that for 2,000 years. How 'bout we give that a break for a while. Kinda depressing you know.
