This statement means that sometimes scientists don't care about the consequences of their work.
This is an example of what happens in Frankenstein's book.
Victor Frankenstein is a young Swedish scientist who is interested in the mysteries of life and death and creates a man using body parts taken from recently dead people.
Then, Victor gives life to the body and intents the creature to be beautiful but he finds it a monster and runs out of the lab in terror. When he goes back, he doesn’t find the monster so he thinks the nightmare has finished. However, he is wrong.
Here, we can see his irresponsable act because he creats a monster by mistake, doesn't try to fix the problem, instead he runs away and doesn't worry about the things it can do. In our opinion, Victor didn't have the right to do what he did: create life in a man.
The learning about all of this is that anybody can't do what he or she wants before thinking if it is correct or not.
Other similar behaviour is shown in Jurassic Park's novel in which a group of scientists cloned dinosaurs using their DNA. A lot of them escape from their jailes and produce horror meetings between the park's staff and the visitants who are still staying in the park and some deads too.
This is a case of biological tinkering that ends in a very bad way, so this demonstrates the man don't have to modify the nature.
