Wait. You are seriously advocating that DNA and genetics define us as humans? (Sig Heil?)

Beyond such idiocy, to claim that history is a defining moniker is to be ruled by it. "No thanks."

Your very argument makes my case, related to what actually matters. Bloodlines will EASILY be so thin in 300 years. If that is your determinative factor, you got bumpkis! You are asking us to care what somebody looks like, which is the antithesis of rational thought. I am asking you to care what somebody acts like, which is MUCH more important.

As for a rez'd out accent, it's not cute. It's as shameful as jive. If that's who you want to be...

No, that's your foolish and isolationist way, where we do things like measure drops of blood, judge based upon colour. and think being "rez'd out" is cute. (Do you expect we'll have reservations in 300 hundred years? There won't be if we follow your half-assed quantum plan, because there won't be enough blood/numbers left to justify their existence! )

Which makes you fundamentally different, is a renewable resource, protects mores and values, could be expressed through families, mandates self-analysis, promotes growth... Oh, nevermind.

We grow or we die.

It's not complicated.
