Consider this unsettling, brilliantly written, must-read book your official wake up call."-- ERIC METAXAS, #1 national bestselling author ofBonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy "Michael Guillen has tackled an important subject inThe End of Life as We Know It...This book is a sobering look at where we could be headed. A fascinating read."-- DAVID LIMBAUGH, bestselling author ofJesus is RisenandThe True Jesus In all aspects of life, humans are crossing lines of no return. Modern science is leading us into vastuncharted territory—far beyond the invention of nuclear weapons or taking us to the moon.Today, in labs all over the world, scientists are performing experiments that threaten to fundamentally alter the practical character and ethical color of our everyday lives. InThe End of Life as We Know It: Ominous News from the Frontiers of Science, bestselling author and Emmy award winning science journalist Michael Guillen takesa penetrating look at how the scientific community is pushing theboundaries of morality, including: Scientists who detached the head of a Russian man from his crippled, diseased body, and stitching it onto a healthy new donated body. Fertility experiments aimed at allowingdesigner babies to be conceived with the DNA from three or more biological parents. The unprecedented politicization of science – for example, in the global discussion about climate change that is pitting "deniers" against "alarmists" and inspiring Draconian legislation, censorship, and legal prosecutions. The integration of Artificial Intelligence into communications and the economy. The End of Life as We Know Ittakes us into labratories and boardrooms where these troublingadvances are taking place and asks the question no scientists seemto be asking: What does this mean for the future of humanity?
