    Link: Resurrected Ibex Dies Shortly After Cloning - The experiment might have failed, but it`s still a big step for science.

    We shouldn`t bring back extinct animals... we should prevent what we have from going extinct in the first place.
    they are extinct for a reason, whether it`s our fault or not, it happened and thats that o.o

    it will be dinosaurs next..i tell you...we are doomed.

    Hmm What happens when you try to play God. Bad things. And the world is in the whole money wise and someone is wasting money on trying to clones some dumb goat. yeah the end is near.

    It`s a different article, Slip. It details how the experiment failed more.

    How about you read the actual link next time, hm?

    Am I the only one that thinks we should prevent extinction instead of just cloning once there all dead? Just a thought.

    I`m sorry... but the last one known to be alive got bashed in the head with a falling tree? That`s God or nature or whatever saying that this species just isn`t supposed to be alive.

    devy87 - yeah, nature is actively deciding whether or not a species should, or should not, become extinct.. Wait, no it doesn`t! It`s not like the species we, the humans, have hunted to extinction became extinct because of "nature" or "a god" deciding it should.

    I did read the article. IMHO the second didn`t offer enough to justify another post that basically said the same thing.

    What would you gain by cloning Jesus? People going after a baby that is supposedly the savior, and then disappointed when he grows up like a child star, given they can find his cells and hair samples AND he doesn`t die prematurely due to breathing difficulties. Then you`d have all those people screaming false prophet, the ones screaming "BLASPHEMY! HE WAS BORN FROM SCIENCE! EVIL SCIENCE! NOT A VIRGIN!", and then other religious extremists trying to kidnap him away from the other groups because they "have the wrong idea of Jesus, WE have the right one."

    You`d get a LOT of crap.

    We now have the power to kill things that were once already dead.

    boo freaking hoo, we are terrible people who kill other species.

    *Hums Flintstones theme followed by Jurassic Park Theme*


    People! I haveth a revelation from the Powers that be…DON’T MESS AROUND WITH GOD AND/OR NATURE! That’s their turf. Kapeesh?

    *Clears throat*

    Look, sure we can try to save animals now that we’re more aware. But lets get a few facts straight

    1) We are man
    -Man is best, and if you look inside your mouth a mirror, LOOK! Canines and incisors!
    -Didn’t God say something about inheriting the lands? The Qu’ran, at least, says that Adam is- the inheritor of the Garden or something of the like. I don’t know what your Old Testament says.

    2) Animals evolve and adapt
    -Time and time again, if you can’t adapt, bug off, Survival of the Fittest. Look it up
    -Social Darwinism, where we get the survival of the fittest PHRASE, says that those who cannot adapt/survive will fail and die off.

    (cont...)

    Conclusion: The world must adapt to man. You see any the dodo birds running around? Exactly.

    It’s a cold-hearted, evil, cruel, vile, scorn worthy, unfair, disastrous truth. But we just have to face up to the fact that we are humans; and as humans, we will rise and fall.

    Look, everything adapts. As we as humans evolved, we developed generalized and specialized limbs. In time, we became the most adaptive. We even learned to use fire, which sped things up.

    The point: we’re damned if we do and we’re damned if we don’t. There’ll still be an imbalance.

    But one thing is certain, if ever we clone extinct animals, I bet we’d wish we hadn’t. That is…if it weren’t too late.

    Haha, compys.

    Less serious now, what if compys became the new guard dogs?

    Man: *breaks in*
    *compy appears a few minutes later as man stuffs things in bag*
    Man: Oh, hello there little fella
    *Compy comes closer and makes noises*
    Man: You’re a curious little fella aren’t ya? *Extends hand*
    *More compys appear*
    Man: I sees yous gots friends, aye fella?
    *First compy lands on hand, walks along arm*
    Man: Oh no ya don’t *Tries to grab compys neck but gets bitten* OWW!! Ya little brutes!
    *Compys come at him*

    *Man screams as he gets eaten by compys*

    The net day the owner comes along and laughs at the dead man. Cuts himself…dies

    But it CAN be done, like an exterior defense. They could develop a gas that will only affect the compies. Or we can make it more psychological. Hmm…

    Instead of wasting resources on cloning extinct animals, perhaps we should work on saving the ones we already have.

    If what Turnshroud is correct then I`m totally seeing a distant future a few million years from now, where humans have adapted to fill every nitch on earth, like the Dinosaurs did back in their time. Dolphin-like mutant sea humans, long necked leaf eating humans, Creepy cave dwelling spider humans... aaahhhhh. *goes off to write a best selling novel of this future event*
    Wait, would that mean that our current adaptable scavenger animals of the earth would be all thats left? So... roaches and rats would still be around to adapt... In this distant future maybe Giant Land roaches are domesticated for a food source, people eating their nasty eggs, treating them like huge chickens. Since humans would be filling all the other roles, and you can`t very well eat people...
    *looks down at coffee*... is this thing laced?

    Oh, whoops! Sorry Loxen, I was wondering where I dropped those drugs.

    Anyway...

    I don`t see the point in trying to bring back existing species, but helping endangered ones is a good idea. If cloning science can advance, that is, to a point where it isn`t painful to just be alive.
