Adding on to what has been previously written here, scientific advances have great potential for both help and harm to society and mankind.  As these advances become possible, we cross scientific frontiers by pursuing them.  Once we cross those frontiers, there is no going back.  Once an atomic bomb was successfully tested, there was no uninventing it.  Now we have an issue with nuclear proliferation and we have crossed a frontier which gives humans the power to end all civilization as we know it.The morals and ethics that should be involved, then, is that we carefully consider whether or not crossing those scientific frontiers is the best course of action, and what the impacts of doing so will be on the human race and the world.
