I think that there are going to be a lot of new changes in the upcoming millennium. I think the change that will have the biggest impact will be genetic engineering. One side of genetic engineering will be that parents will be allowed to chose the outcome of their baby. Another side is cloning. I think the biggest part will be correcting DNA to get rid of diseases. That could also be a part of choosing your baby because you could fix any problems before it is even born. I think the part that will most affect our generation will be choosing your baby.
You will probably be able to choose he sex, hair color, skin tone, etc. You might even be able to choose your babies birthdate. You will probably also be able to choose which parent the child resembles more. I think that cloning could also be a part of this because they will be able to make your baby look exactly like whoever you want. I think that cloning will be the change that everyone likes for a little while but then they will realize that it is really bad and we are running out of room to live.
I think it will start out that they get a clone to help with housework but then they will just keep getting more and more until the lones have clones who have clones and no one will have any idea who they are talking to. Then after all of that happens people will be living forty or fifty to a house and the we will have to cut down all of the trees to have room to live and then we will die because we need trees to make oxygen for us. I am strongly against cloning because I believe that if you clone people the will just get lazy and fat because they will have clones running around to do everything for them.
Another thing I do not agree with is fixing peoples problems with gene therapy. I think that if people get a disease it is either their own ault or they got it for some reason. I do not think that we should be able to decide who lives and who dies. It is okay to try and help people live but if they need gene therapy there has to be some reason why they are supposed to die. I think they will be able to fix any problem anyone has by simply giving them a shot that goes into their cells and fixes the part of the DNA that is not right, the question is how will everyone feel about living forever.
I feel okay about some parts of genetic engineering but not any that are going to overpopulate the world. I think another big part of the new millennium will be ntergalactic travel. I think we will be able to just book a flight like you would to go across the country. Im sure that there has to be life out there somewhere because if every star is just like our sun then there has to be planets circling them. Im sure at least one of them has the same type of environment as ours. They will probably make some kind of ship that will be able to go the speed of light or even faster.
I think that there is no way that gasoline will stay around. I think it will be replaced by fuel cells, that convert water to energy. I think they will make it run on water ecause that is the most plentiful substance on earth. Or maybe they will find some new substance on another planet that is more useful or better for the environment. They will probably make a better vehicle that can go a lot faster and without a driver. I believe the change that will impact children the most is that there wont be any school that you have to go to.
All schools will come in through the computer and the Internet. When that happens there wont be any need for paper or writing utensils because everything will be done digitally. That will make kids have a lot better grades because they ont be forced to get up in the morning to go to school. That might make kids grades lower though because they will not want to do any work because they will be at home. I think that communication will change a great deal. You will not need anything to talk to other people.
You will just have a chip in your head that can communicate with other peoples chips. People will be able to communicate across the world by just thinking about who they want to talk to. People will even be able to go on the Internet by just hooking up a screen to their head and thinking which sites they want to go to. I think that sports will change a lot to. They will either go away completely or they will make robots that play the game for everyone. No one will want to play sports because they will be too lazy to do any of that stuff.
There is still enough money in it though for people to keep investing in it. There will probably be some new sports that no one can even dream of now. Houses will also be very different than they are now. You will be able to program everything to be automatic like shower, coffee maker or breakfast. They will be a lot more secure because they will have very advanced security ystems. They will also have different beds that will let you rest faster so it seems like you are getting more sleep in the same amount of time.
I think that the future will have a lot of good and bad things in store for all of us. In the future there will be a ton of new things for all of us to discover and enjoy. I think that the quality of living will greatly increase. Everything will be built very complex but perform so basically. Everything will become run by machines and robots but we will control them. I think that the technology will become so common that it will all become very inexpensive.
