Michael J. Fox said: “I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God’s business.”
Perfection have been always pursued by human across the ages, in any domain people always try to perfect everything they do. With the help of modern technology scientist have been able to establish a method for perfecting human. Genetic engineering is a deliberate, controlled manipulation of the genes making changes in the genome, removing flaws from babies before they’re even born providing a longer and healthier life. But for other it’s a method of circumventing what nature gave you. This modification could take place in gamete and would be inheritable or in somatic cell. In many countries it is currently illegal. Genetic engineering has the power to shape the future of the human race, it is a debatable branch in science. Perfection has always been an obsession for people of all ages and across the

Only in the recent years people actually sought to achieve it. In past history, perfection was pursued, but was not achievable. Greeks recognized that perfection was not complete in them, they illustrated their ideal self in their art. Then, in the middle of the nineteenth century a short cautionary story “the birthmark” about a scientist whom wife had a hand-shaped birthmark on her face, he tried to perfect her by removing it, she ended up dead, lead to the belief that perfection could never be achieved. Afterward, this thought changed several years later by the introduction of Darwinism that according to is a theory states that species originate by descent, with variation, from parent forms, through the natural selection of those individuals best adapted for the reproductive success of their kind. And through the time achieving perfection is not just a theory
