Human Co-Creators Take Control of Living Cell

I am not a scientist, but from what I can gather from recent media reports, scientists are now capable of taking the simplest living cell and theoretically turning it into any kind of cell they want.

Living Synthetic Cell Created by Co-Creators

Theologians have identified us as co-creators with God, and indeed, I think we are. In some ways one could say it is part of being human and should be celebrated as the dignity of human life. On the other hand, humans are finite individuals who often lack the wisdom of the big picture. We act, but often with great immaturity, pride, and selfishness. We are co-creators and not creators! Let us hope and pray that scientist will have the humility to act and co-create with great caution, and recognize in all sincerity and absolute practicality the limitations of the human situation.
