First 'Mixed Embryo' Monkeys Born





http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-16427873 (external - login to view)

From mice to monkeys to eventually man, science has decided to redefine the human race.

The power of human life creation by science is here and scientists have promised us that they would never do this and they have clearly broken their promise.

We as a society have decided to produce made to order humans where we will just simply choose from a catalogue what we want in children and provide a sperm sample and a human egg from the woman and scientists will do the rest.

We are definitely going into a new phase of human development and we have to hope that they get it right this time or our future will eventually be our nightmare.

Ah, those cute little monkeys will probably be tortured and maimed, shot up with all sorts of horrible diseases, irradiated and otherwise mutilated in the name of science. How wonderful.

Mixing different variations of the species might have unexpected consequences since each one has evolved the way it has for some particular purpose. Who knows if combining them would negatively affect their former capabilities or create a super monkey.

Let's find out!

Stanford is tinkering with giving mice human brains. Christ, mice are smart enough; some are even posters on CC!

Nope. Homo sapiens is homo sapiens. So far, scientists have not been able to change the fact, they can only mess with its characteristics.

Wrong again. The closest we've come to recreating what nature built is the Miller/Urey experiment. The Miller/Urey Experiment (external - login to view)

So?

The future has a lot more than one way of becoming a nightmare now. So?
