Whelp, it's happening. Scientists in China have begun genetically modifying human embryos. While these initial attempts to replace potentially fatal genes with new, safe, designer genes proved unsuccessful, the fact that Chinese researchers are even experimenting on human embryos has caused a stir in the scientific community. Jeff and Anthony debate whether humans should be playing god in this way, and consider the inevitable Lizard Babies that will result.
