And like Kaizer said, the person might not even look exactly like the other person :p
I believe in souls? It makes no sense?
If making a same-age clone were possible, I`d self-clone, and f*ck it up the ass. Because I`m g*ddamn awesome and I love myself.
it may look like the same dog, but it is not the same dog, crazy lady.
in conclusion...i wouldnt.
Plus it would creep me out and my boyfriend would make us have a threesome.
We`re not that far from there according to some neurologists studies.
If you clone someone the clone wont be the same person just the same appearance and the same genes. The clone will act differently, probably in a similar way but not identical.
He or she will be a new individual.
Cloning is only good for remplacement parts or, if you clone animals, for food. We can reproduce ourselves just fine.
We could put the clones into staysis(sp?)..but then all the human rights groups would get pissy...
Just because America is too backwards and ignorant to give a poo about all the people it could help\save doesn`t mean the rest of the world is.
Eh, yeah, I`m back.
Its about cloning organs and stuff to heal the living.
and any other cloned member of my family
they have no souls
TL;DR? cloning only good in theory
Come on people, have a bit of logic here.
But cloning humans would1)Be playing god, but humans have been doing that forever anyways so I don`t really care about that2) Reduce genetic diversity (so when Avian Flu finally comes along, we`d have a higher chance of being wiped out)3) Refer to any science fiction book or movie with a clone in it. Never turns out well does it? (except for House of the Scorpion, but in there we already have a country named after a drug, so we were already screwed)
And if a family member was cloned would they die (again)? Or would they be a clone forever?
But then I`m reading the comments of some of the other memebers and completely see their points.
What would be the point if it`s not the same person with the same memories or same personality?? That is why you loved that person to begin with.
Magic Potion summed it up right here for me: "If I died I wouldn`t want to be cloned just so my friends and family had some one else that looks like me but isn`t me, only to comfort them in some disturbing way."
Major questions is, "Why?"
Dunno about you, but I don`t need more idiots in this world. Our gene pool is tainted enough as it is.
Alright, guys. Have you ever read any books? Do you not realize what crazy crap would go on with clones? It`s more trouble than it could possibly be worth.
Not to mention, how would the clones feel about all this? Being expected to be someone, instead of themselves. They`re not going to be clones of that person`s personality or memories or feelings. They just look alike.
People need to learn to let go of things, and even if we did clone it would eventually end up with Social Darwinists taking over the world.
