    I am of the belief that knowing how things work is a good thing, whether it be with some kind of mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, genetic engineering, computer engineering, the list goes on. Therefore I don't think the idea of cloning is a bad thing, because we may ultimately be able to discover a lot about ourselves, but when you start creating life only to have it die because of ignorance (what i mean is the scientists must have missed somethin somewhere along the line)l then you are getting into some very hot water. I think the cloning process will be slowed down by these deaths, but I don't think the research will ever be stopped.

    I also think that the research is not going to stop, and I beleive that knowing how things work is good, but that doesn't mean it's right to clone animals.

    No!!

    we can learn from cloning? i cant think of a posative thing that could come from making a genetic copy of an organism?

    ...and didnt we have this descussion about a month ago
    guns dont kill people, abortion clinics kill people.

    Yes. Why wouldn't it?

    yea we did, but i thought since it died this would be good to continue, the discussion that is.

    I believe in cloneing for science, i fear cloning for war and such..

    You're afraid we're going to be overrun with babies, or what?

    By the time we're able to do cloning right we can already make
    terminators so why go through the trouble?

    I feel that if they can get cloning right enough to make copies of soldjers and stuff, they will be able to increase the age process :P

    I can't believe anyone would buy into that BS. Even if that is ever possible, it certainly isn't now, and it's no reason to stop research.

    edit: Maybe Dick Clark's proof that we have it in reverse, though.

    look in the dead cloned animals direction, But what about
    being able to forever cloning for example a pig? No more
