Episode 48: CRISPR and the Dawn of Human Genome Manipulation

This week, we discuss CRISPR a genetic manipulation technology that is taking the scientific community by storm and bringing up significant ethical and spiritual questions.We believe this is a topic Christians needs to be talking about and so this is our attempt at explaining this revolutionary technology and starting to work through how Christians should think and talk about it.

If you want to hear more on this topic, Alex spoke about CRISPR on the Tech Reformation Podcast episode 26 a few weeks ago. You can listen to that episode here (http://www.techreformation.com/tr026/).

You can also hear Albert Mohler discuss CRISPR on The Briefing. He does an excellent job explaining why Christians should care about the ethics of this technology (http://www.albertmohler.com/2015/08/21/the-briefing-08-21-15/).

The Economist has written two excellent articles on CRISPR that are worth your time.
