Blame the Evolution; Cocane, gene and notion of Free will

11 Nov

{I am not against the research that is finding all these genes. I am looking towards the question which will arise from these discoveries. Questions sooner or later will endup in the courts}

According the the guardian

Scientists reported yesterday the discovery of a gene that increases the chances of becoming hooked on the drug. Addicts were 25% more likely to carry the gene variant than people who did not use cocaine, a study found.

Well one more down against notion of free will.

Everything is ending to be related to the gene. You are eating too much it is in gene problem, you are cheating on your wife (or girl-friend) do not blame yourself it is your gene (rat gene) and now if cops try to put you in the jail tell the judge Man I cant go against NatureIt is in my gene‘.

And Nature could be either God or process of Evolution depending upon what you believe in.

The interesting question regarding Evolution would be why these people had these genes? Do these flirts are descendants of clan where cheating on the wives was way to survive?

Man how many times you cheated this month

3 sir,

You get 1/2 of the buffalo

Or if you go to Shariah court you can say “Look Qazi-Sahab, I cant do anything. That’s how I was created. My genes dont allow me to be satisfied with one”

I am afraid what it might end up with. Your To-be Father in law will require you to get the rat-gene test.

Or even we can build some i-Phone based rat-gene population detector. So ladies when you enter bar just check your GPS based rat-gene population detectors. Red means too many rats avoid it. blue means very few. Yellow means not-tested. Not-tested! dump these ass-holes they are already poor enough to get test!

On the serious note. Things the news of detection of genes like cancer, diabetes, etc..  is already on the way of causing a big problem.

Where there are cooperate Insurance companies, they could use these scanning to dump you or charge you more. (And why should not they if you have high probability of spending their more money)

In case of the under-development countries (including India, china, Pakistan and middle-east) parents might pre-screen their children for the genes. And dump or abort the ones that lack their prefered genes.

This notion that Humans dont have Free Will and their actions are pre-determined is quite troublesome.

I afraid the day when the people would be acquited or given less scentence because ‘it is in their nature’ argument. My fear is not because these will let guilty people acquited but because this will lead to aperthide. This will lead to the argument, if “It’s in their nature” then why not just put them where they do not harm the ones who does not have “it in their nature”.

I am not against the research that is finding all these genes. I am looking towards the question which will arise from these discoveries. Questions sooner or later will endup in the courts.
