Fukuyama should read Pinker.  Human beings have been on a self improvement project for millennia.  Once we get better control of our gene pool we will start tinkering.  We may see the day of designer children.

The limited group of Thinkers on Facebook are not replying, so I figured I'll ask here: so, the most vocal opponent of transhumanism is Francis Fukuyama. Though I myself disagree with him on this, I would like to hear other opinions on his position. Please, take a look at his article on this topic and let me know if you agree or see any flaws:http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2004/09/01/transhumanism
