A thought on "playing God"

Whether you believe in it or not, deciding whether or not to keep somebody on life support, perform stem cell research, wage war or use birth control is not "playing God." These things fall squarely within our limited abilities as human beings. Just because God may be able to do something doesn't mean we're encroaching on any divine territory by doing it too. "Playing God" would have to involve moving beyond our natural abilities. It's inherently impossible.

That is all.
