Hawking’s ‘master race’ vision?
The famous physicist, Stephen Hawking, reportedly believes that genetic engineers will create ‘improved’ superintelligent human beings within a few hundred years by circumventing the brain-size constructure of a mother’s birth canal.
He insists genetic engineering of humans is inevitable, admitting it will cause great social and political problems. The paper quotes Prof. Hawking as saying: “It may not be in accord with democratic or egalitarian principles, but evolution has never been politically correct.”
