A DEBATE CLUB FOR THE GALACTIC AGE
YE OLDE FUTURIST UNION
Angel City Brewery
Oct 28pm DEBATE from 8-10pm (Doors 7:30pm)
DEBATE: CRISPR DESIGNER BABIES
For the final YOFU debate series we are pulling out the most controversial, legendary and bizarre futuristic topic: CRIPSR.
Picture CRISPR-Cas9 as like a “find and replace” search in a computer document, only instead of words, you’re editing genetic sequences. Whether you are wiping out an entire mosquito population, personalizing your cancer treatment, mixing species, or repairing a human genetic mutation for a designer baby the question at hand is: is it OK to start editing DNA?
Look for us at Angel City Brewery (back bar) for the final showdown. Doors open at 7:30, debate starts sharply at 8pm! Come down, drink beer, blow your mind, and after all the information is out on the table we invite you to slam down your cup and vote.

This lively and outlandish Oxford style debate — is filled with experts, and novices, and some people who dressed like they were from the future. We gathered in AltSpaceVR and in Angel City Brewery (LA) to take on the biggest ideas of our times in a balanced way.
We debated about everything from Mind Control to Universal Basic Income.
