Of course, we have some short-sighted scientists who only care about their own work and not the long-term implications, like He himself and Church, but the actions and words of these two were roundly condemned.
Hopefully this buys us enough time to see the real long-term implications of starting a Phenotypic Revolution, and we can get some world-wide consensus to stop gene-editing in humans.
It was just released a couple of days ago, but it’s an update to our understanding on the origins and evolution of life forms. If you read it now you can be on the leading edge of these conversations before it hits the mainstream.
Just because we are able to split an atom doesn't mean we should end the world through nuclear weapons. Just because we can genetically modify humans doesn't mean we should end DNA-based life on earth through a phenotypic revolution.
It wouldn't be as immediate (likely thousands of years at the shortest), but genetic modifying of humans could start us down the irreversible path within the next 10-50 years. I encourage you to read the book, since it gives the entire overview of the updated hypothesis. It's not a sci-fi novel, just a Biology book with a warning.
