Genetic Engineering Idolatry

As an agrobiologist and faithful reader, I was disappointed that "For God So Loved the Dirt ... " by Norman Wirzba (April 2011) did not mention genetic engineering. Today, industrial agricultural crops are not designed by the God of the Bible but by new gods called genetic engineers, who work for corporations creating new life forms that could never exist in nature. These new corporate deities don’t even mention God when applying for the U.S. patents on their life forms. Information about genetically engineered crops and food in the United States continues to fly under the radar of the press.
