Topic 2 DQ 1

Now that we have the scientific technology to alter people’s genes, should society

allow for the alteration of human genes to eliminate criminal predispositions or to

improve upon desirable traits? Use scholarly resources to support your

explanations. Access and read the GCU Statement on the Integration of Faith and

Work. How might a person with the Christian worldview feel about altering human

genes to eliminate criminal predispositions or to improve desirable traits?

Topic 2 DQ 2

Should those with neurological and genetic disorders be treated differently by the

legal system because of their disorders? If we created a society free of genetic

disorder through gene therapy and control, how would that effect the operation of

the criminal justice system? Would that remove the defenses based upon biological

predisposition to crime? Use scholarly resources to support your explanations.
