I most certainly think that there should be a line that is not to be crossed when it comes to humanity’s pursuit of knowledge. Progress in the world of science is great, but we can’t let it get too far. If everything is constantly being updated, we will lose touch of what life once was and what should always remain. We can’t get caught up in changing the world or else our short time on earth will be wasted. Those who do get caught up with obsessions will realize that they could have been spending quality time with good people doing fun things, but instead chose to throw their life away being dedicated to some experiment.We see this is exact scenario happen in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Victor loses touch with his family and with reality altogether because his obsession with creating life takes over his own life. People should not be trying to “play God” by doing things such as bringing the dead back to life. Especially not without considering the consequences. Victor’s actions caused bad things to happen. That could have been his punishment for not respecting God’s will and nature’s will. It’s not natural to try and give life to something that is dead. Everyone lives and everyone dies. It’s the way she goes. Considering it is 2016, everyone should accept that by now.
Of course medicine, new discoveries, and ways to make life easier are great. Lives are being saved every day. People are receiving health care to make whatever anyone’s conditions may, as comfortable as possible. Many emergency procedures now exist to prevent some life-threatening situations from being fatal. It’s wonderful and I don’t think the search for cures and comfort should ever stop. However, I don’t think that anyone should be searching for anything too extreme. Some things need to be left to God and nobody should feel a moral obligation to to God-related things. If people are trying to make some magic, everlasting life potion, something is going to go wrong and we’re going to have some kind of Dawn of the Dead stuff going on. Don’t be like Victor. Let the world turn the way it always has. God will solemnly take care of the rest.
