Genetically engineering farm animals, including salmon, is an outgrowth of the belief that man can discover truth by objective, quantitative measurement, that creation can be explained simply by mathematics and mechanics. This view dismisses human subjectivity and multi-dimensional man. This view has also led to the separation of man from nature. Rather than being a part of nature, man has risen above nature. Nature is meant to serve man. This view underlies the clear cutting of old growth forests and contributes to overfishing. That is, of course, a world view run amok.
