Resum

Under the expression "lay bioethics" many thinkers are grouped which seem to share the idea that "etsi Deus non daretur ". Nevertheless, a more careful analysis shows not only pluralism but also insoluble antagonisms inside the own field lay. On the one hand, some Christian positions are infiltrate of laity, and we can even find pantheistic reminiscences in certain materialistic way. On the other, lay bioethics have been late to the bioethical speech, for what they have shared the change of course of this discipline. At the end of the 20th century people were afraid of the loss of biodiversity, but at the beginning of the XXIst the problem is the increase of it, including our possible biodiversification. Definitively, it is possible to affirm that the original bioethics has evolved up to becoming unrecognizable, and that a great part of the responsibility is attributable to the lay way of thinking and its questions and projects.
