News: Baby to be CLONED in Ky >greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside II : One Thread
Saw this on the news page on CIS. A doctor in Lexington Ky says he expects there will be a cloned pregnancy before the end of the year.
He said the "genie is already out of the bottle" ( I presumed he meant on the cloning issue, and that "we" should work with it instead of against it.
What a baliwick!

I really hoped that we'd never see this day. I knew that there had been alot of talk about cloning humans, but after the govt. put that 'ban' on I expected to hear that the first cloned humans would be either a long way off or overseas. Not that would make it any better; messing with human reproduction in this manner, genetically modified foods, etc - our world is on a collision course with disaster in my opinion.

Granny, heard this joke on a radio show this mornin....
The scientists had successfully cloned humans. They decided that they would go to heaven and tell God he was no longer needed. When they got to heaven, the scientists told God that they could make a human better than He, and he could retire that he was no longer needed. God told them He didn't agree and to let's see who could make the better human. They go first. The scientists then reached down to pick up a handful of dirt and God said pointing his finger.."No no no no no, that's MY dirt". :)

They probably attempted cloning of humans in the early days right beside salemanders.
