wow, some people go thru so much searching to prove something. Im glad its not real tho...than people would over populate and lower the food chain. Many animals that used to be human food are now either endangered or extinct. Over population would be horrible. I like cheese burgers and would hate to have to eat fruit for the rest of the world...wouldnt you? I have nothing against vegitarians, I even tried to be one before, its just I found that tacos (my fav food) dont taste right without meat. :)))

sorry to dissapoint you all.

But I confirm, IT IS A FAKE !

The article submitted by blahblah3349 in the "the sunday times." was reporting a Jonathan Leake a science-editor as the reporter of this article. I`ve searched for this name and found this site : http://www.numberwatch.co.uk/2001%20December.htm

Scrool close to the bottom of the page, it is written :

Post-science Journalist of the Year is Jonathan Leake of the Sunday Times. He has published so many stories revealing the triumph of imagination over scientific evidence that it seems invidious to pick out one. However, one of his many global warming stories is head and shoulders above others, see Leaf Mould in November. A subsequent analysis (aptly entitled Making the News) showed that all four graphs used in the story benefited more from creative imagination than they did from the original scientific data.

Sorry all, I would had really liked that this article was real, it would be so great for our future...

Well, if it`s fake then great, if not then that is really great, as long as it doesn`t become something that is used in the wrong ways...

this is fake. i`m shocked that only a few people have pointed that out...1) this article wasn`t written in the same context that a real news article would have been. no journalist/reporter name was given. 2)this happened (supposedly) on the 29th of august. we would have heard something of this from another souce if it were true. the magnitude of the story is just too great. 3) no picture (not needed, but it adds up) 4) the scientist`s report was obviously used as a reference, but no contributers were mentioned

If we used this sort of new technology for the right purposes,imagine the possibilities. Injured war veterans that are missing legs from stepping on land mines are fine. Children with birth defects are normal people. This could change like, everything.

besides, what makes man made things not "natrual"?
what defines natural? if a deer makes a mark on a tree is it natural? if so, then why cant a human making a mark on a tree be natural? or is nature only plants? if so, then why not animals?

No ones messing with the laws of nature. :-/ Is giving an organ transplant to someone messing with the laws of nature? Or a flu vaccination? And besides that, its perfectly natural. These genes arent man made and theyll never be.

if we weren`t meant to make scientific advances, then we wouldn`t have computers or the internet right now. if you disapprove of messing with nature, then go live in a cave, weave your own clothes, and hunt what little wildlife there is left. I personally like technology and science. but I`m not one to judge

"Scientists have long known that less complex creatures have an impressive ability to regenerate. Many fish and amphibians can regrow internal organs or even whole limbs." Ah, an important point.

That is kinda scary to me actually. I think we should leave things alone. Plus, population control would be out of control if everyone could regrow organs. People would live much longer.
