cloning pioneer Robert H. Foote. Foote, who has been cloning animals for 15 years,

Wasn't this a Heinlein character in the Lazerus Long novels.

a geneticist, a biochemist, and a gynecologist...

I love to get the Confederate heritage dudes from VA and the Raelians together in a small room. I'm not really sure what would happen but I bet it'd be interesting.

OK, we need another comet...soon.

Why wait for a comet. Send them some grape Kool aid (sp)

Aside from the cloning issue, there is just so much wrong in this article I think my head's gonna explode.

"'The more scientists look at the human genome and the more we see how sophisticated it is, the harder it becomes to believe that it all happened by chance through evolution...'"

What farking scientist worth their salt would resort to this sort of hackneyed argument? It's the classic "argument from design" - a non seqitur fallacy (or is it a black/white fallacy - I can't remember). The formulation is: You're walking through the woods and you come upon a beautiful clearing with rows of flowers and pretty trees. It seems like someone must have planted the garden - after all, it's too orderly and pretty to have just occurred that way. There must have been a master gardener who devised it, right? Not necessarily. That conclusion is based on subjective, cognitive limitations of the observer. The conclusion is purely speculative.

2001-08-31 04:24:10 PM

Meat: "god denied"? I heard he can be a tough nut on article submissions :-)
 
2001-08-31 04:33:08 PM  
Pst! Listen, here's the plan: clone everyone but these freaks.

Ya want a comet, ya got a comet.

Remember the C&H when Calvin turned his transmogrifier upside down and it changed into a replicator and then all of a sudden there were several Calvins, and then the other Calvins were getting into mischief and the first Calvin was getting in trouble for all of the replicants' transgressions? Boy was that funny.

Raelians vs. Scientologists, who wins?
 
2001-08-31 05:57:31 PM  
5th: I'd have to wager on the Scientologists - their lawyers are bigger and meaner.

Later, he added a good and evil meter to it to create a "good clone"

great series.
its in the 'scientific progress goes *boink*?' collection

My points:
1.These people are probably nothing more than an orgy cult.
2.From what I've heard and read,most clones are unhealthy,and there for every clone shot into existence,there are numerous blanks.
3.Humanity may have been influenced by aliens in the past,but being created and dominated by aliens is a wacked idea.
4.Who wants to live forever?
5.And lastly,haven't these people ever read "Herbert West,Reanimator" by H.P. Lovecraft?A guy messes around with trying to bring the dead back to life,and things get less than pleasant...

That lady used to live not far from where I lived and performed her experiments at a local community college. It'll explain why a lot of people around here look the same. I'll tell you another thing... Do you people wonder if McDonalds Happy Meals have contributed... nah... nevermind.

All I can think of is Alien Resurrection where the cloned Ripley goes in and sees all the "mistakes" of herself. I can see this happening with what they're trying to accomplish. Something resembling "The Thing" when it comes out.

Or when Towlie's TNA is copied by the bad guys and used to make other screwed up Towlies.

Gives me the goosebumps.
