    There seems to be an undercurrent of suspicion that this Italian guy is full of shit. Guess we'll know in a couple of months.

    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Don't we have enough problems with over-population in some countries. Plus, there are some people in this world who should not be cloned. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    Unfortunately, cloning a human will probably be as messy as Dolly was...several deformed fetuses whose short existence will be painful, at best...

    Then again, when do men with God complexes ever think about anyone but themselves?

    I think theres a lot to be learned from the technology involved in cloning. Especially as it applies to stem cell research etc

    Unfortunately the scientific worlds in a race to put a 'new man on the moon' so to speak. I just hope they do it, then move on to finding some proper application for the technology.

    I cant see any way human cloning can be of any benefit to us as a species. It's just a silly concept. However hopefully the work thats done 'on the way' to that goal can turn out to be something thats of practical use, for the good of everyone.

    Someones gonna do it. Everyone wants to be first. I just hope we don't get too many mistakes, and once it's done, thats it. old news.

    About to be born!????

    about the only thing I can think of that cloning would be good for is organ reproduction---you have a bad heart? clone it and stick it in there! perfect match and it's brand new!!

    other than that, I don't wanna see Hitler being cloned or some crazy shit like that

    Yeah, cloning organs. I agree with that. Repairing organs, tissues, spinal cords. Shit man, eventually, we'll be able to live forever!

    Lemmie throw a hypothetical at you :-

    What if research involved with this cloning experiment , was to lead to a general vaccine against most cancers within 10 years?

    Based on previous announcements by this Italian quack, the so-called "About to be born clone" would actually be well over the normal nine months.

    Gawd, looks like fertility doctors can practice "Sammy Math" too

    I'm sorry, but to think that someone with a mind capeable of putting this much thought & energy towards cloning couldnt redirect his talents on something worthwhile, like AIDS research, is beyond me! Believe me, people still have kids! Those who cant.. ADOPT! I'm sorry, I dont have kids, & adoption is an option that I'm exploring.. I have reciently read articles about the AIDS rise & it's pretty friggen scary! Just because you dont hear it on the news every night anymore does NOT mean that it went away.
    If not AIDS, Cancer? Something life sustaining!? I dont need a "MiniMe"!
