Are We Already Living in Gattaca’s World?

  Practically every science fiction movie puts forth its own idea of what the future will look like, and most of the time they’re way off base. For instance, I don’t think apes are ever going to evolve and conquer the world like in Planet of the Apes. Nor do I think Manhattan will be turned…
