Your little story, sir, is a little ancient. We have the INTERNET now (for what it's worth, and no, not just you, Anon...pft).
Among other things like a robot on Mars, Bush no longer being President by January, etc.
And the girlfriend robot! Doesn't the girlfriend robot give you hope, Anon?
Oh wait, never mind.
" 'Playing God' is actually the highest expression of human nature. The urges to improve ourselves, to master our environment, and to set out children on the best path possible have been the fundamental driving forces of all of human history. Without these urges to 'play God,' the world as we know it wouldn't exist today. A few million humans would live in savannahs and forests, eking out a hunter-gatherer existence, without writing or history or mathematics or an appreciation of the intricacies of their own universe and their own inner workings."
