Watching the TV this morning as I was getting dressed I found myself watching a phone in news/comment show - The Wright Stuff - They where discussing genetic manipulation, in particular the recent news stories about how genetic changes to animals have been passed to the next generation (A Jellyfish gene which causes fluorescence was put into monkeys making them glow in the dark and their offspring glow in the dark too) and I was struck by how often "Nature" was personified... "If we get rid of all the diseases "Nature" will make some more to balance population", ""Nature" made it so species could not breed with other species, so "Nature" wont like us messing with her system", ""Nature" will punish us for messing about", "How do we know that in changing things "Nature" wont come up with new diseases that are even worse" etc. etc. Is this an implicit creationism? A new Creator called "Nature"? Has our cultural language has genetically modified nature from a process/ecosystem into "Nature" a creative entity? Is "Nature" the female/maternal entity a slow burn reaction to patriarchal religion?
