The Bainbridge Public Library hosts a monthly discussion group. It
meets on the 4th Friday of the month from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. The Salon is for men
and women who enjoy stimulating conversation and wish to learn from others in
civil dialogue. Topics will vary, but the mode will be general interest
subjects that impact the public. The Salon conversations will be energizing,
fun, and thought provoking. Next up is:
"Genetic Engineering: the Perils and Promises of Monkeying with Evolution”
scientific and technological advances have given us the means to alter the
inheritable characteristics of any living thing, from a corn plant to a human
being. Past experience teaches us that
technical advances can greatly enrich our lives, but that big new things also
come with consequences that no one expected.
Now that we can modify the course of evolution, what do we do with that
capability? What are the promises – and
what might be the perils of the ongoing advances in genetic engineering?
Join us at the Salon on Friday, July 22nd at 1:30. We’ll be in the large
conference room on the main floor at BPL. Civil discourse is the norm. Click here for a reading that might stimulate your thinking on the July topic.
