Another topic I think was weird.

In my opinion, I think it shouldn't be allowed. We are already overpopulated as it is.

No Never Ever Never Ever


Want to elaborate?

moral/ethic issues will only arise whit what we will do whit him.


Hopefully it would just be a first-hand observation on his thinking patterns and learning capabilities

Given the current circumstances I would say no.
If we were on the brink of destroying ourselves, I would need to know if the cloned people were still able to reproduce because sometimes cloned things can't reproduce then what is the point? I think it would also increase the amount of deseises and I do not think they will ever be able to clone a human.

Wait, what?

They would simply be genetic twins, not artificial humans that aren't on equal footing. Short of evil Umbrella Corporation from a dystopian world the idea is that the clones would be raised and treated like normal children, as far as I'm concerned, there wouldn't be a distinction between clone and original. It's also worth noting that if a clone did become insane it would only be as a result of the genetic mutation they experienced as a result of their environment, since you know, apparently they original turned out fine. Although it is probable that if doctors are actually able to clone humans perfectly, they will be able to remove the triggers for various mental and physical diseases that plague humans.


Hmm, I still don't like the concept. Your fabricating a human being, it doesn't seem right to me. I guess Im just weird then, it is like growing a plant in a room full of lights, I don't like it because technically they never saw the sun. Im just odd I guess. And yes it is a artificial human being, just because it came from a real human beings DNA doesn't mean that that clone is natural. If it came from another human being (birthing wise) then it is natural, if you took DNA and did some type of mumbo jumbo that grow a human then that is unnatural. In my opinion..

If a clone is genetically identical to its original organism, the only reason why a clone would not be able to reproduce is if the original organism did not have the ability to reproduce.

You are assuming they can perfectly make a perfect copy of a human being. I guess the term "clone" would imply that. I see what you are saying. I still am unsure, I am assuming this would be happening in the vary distant future based on how little we actually know about human genetics. So I guess you are right. Touche One point for you.

based on how little we actually know about human genetics.
