At this time, anyone who cares to........ can begin with their thoughts regarding Eugenics. Even if you're not comfy calling and chatting with us, your comments may be brought into the discussion by one of the hosts.

Eugenics, while not under this title, is found back as far as ancient Greece. Ancient greece - like a frat house stove.

Indeed.
Plutarch wrote that in Sparta, the Elders would inspect all newborns for defects. If they were found "ill", they would leave them in the bush in the mountains.

“Offspring was not reared at the will of the father, but was

taken and carried by him to a place called Lesche, where the elders of the tribes officially examined the
infant, and if it was well-built and sturdy, they ordered the father to rear it, and assigned it one of the
nine thousand lots of land; but if it was ill-born and deformed, they sent it to the so-called Apothetae, a
chasm-like place at the foot of Mount Taygetus, in the conviction that the life of that which nature had not
well equipped at the very beginning for health and strength, was of no advantage either to itself or the
state.”

Plato quoted Socrates saying that

children with any defects should be killed
: “For we must take care that we don’t overlook some

defect in this thing that is entering into life; it may be something not worth bringing up, a wind-egg, a

falsehood. What do you say? Is it your opinion that your child ought in any case to be brought up and not

exposed to die? Can you bear to see it found fault with and not get into a rage if your first-born is stolen

away from you?”

AngelsNDemons feels this topic can fly off into so many different directions, like strollingbones does on her broom after a joint of purple haze

I do, like any other convo, it could end up trailing off topic at some point into anything from abortion to stem cell research...I, myself, was wondering about gender selection and IVF too...or what about going to the sperm bank and choosing the father with the highest IQ and good looks? Isn't that "playing God" as well?

Yupp, it is. It all kind of is.

As an expression "playing god" is a discussion in and of itself. **falls off chair**

I will keep us focused.
