    Ummm, every single grain used in all varieties of Cheerios have been genetically modified.

    Corn, originally, was a single grain that was selectively bred (Genetically Modified) by Native Americans to the plant that we think of, today.

    Peanut Butter Cheerios are the bomb! FYI.

    Only a strict creationist can claim there is such a thing as a non-GMO organism.

    That’s a pretty good point, actually.

    It does bring to mind the “If God had wanted us to ‘x’ he would of given us ‘y’.” argument… Hmmm, maybe more the “Playing God” argument, but I digress.
