I often considered this, and apparently our old friend Evil Edna or Psyopti-gone has too in this public email list post.

What if GMOs are entirely a hoax? What if the whole science of genetic engineering is another fraud? A Big Lie, in all practical senses? What if no man, not even the monsters of Monsanto, can tamper with the genetic structure of any living organism?
What if the great argument over GMOs, and their safety, is just another strategy of tension?
A strategy in which 220;farming traditionalists” and “environmentalists” are pitted, in a classic divide et impera, against the broader scientific community?
What if, even today, the only practical way of “modifying” genes is by selective breeding of the plant- or animal-stock, over many generations? In other words, the fields of animal and plant husbandry can boast no real advancements since the beginning of time?
We know now that the “cloned” Dolly-The-Sheep was, also, just another fake. Yet we’re told that genetic fingerprinting is a well-developed and accepted mainstream science. So how did the Dolly fraud go undetected for so long? When a simple genetic test should have exposed the Fraud at the time? What truth then to genetic fingerprinting and other related sciences?
A rather obnoxious “expert” in the science of food safety said that the anti-GM lobby is driven by “ignorance”. However offensive his comment, it may well be true, if GM food is a hoax!
