Will genetic engineering be part of how humans evolve?

Surely, genetic engineering will affect future generations, depending on how it is done, and on what organisms/life-forms.  Already, we're making genetic modifications to many food crops, including even some fish...all in an effort to enhance food production to feed an ever-more-crowded planet.

Whatever genetic engineering is performed on foods will undoubtedly have at least SOME effect on human beings who consume those foods, and will likely influence evolution, going forward.  Hard to say just how, but I believe it will have bearing on our future, now that it is becoming main-stream practice on a global scale.
