They're not bringing back Cady; they're making someone that looks like her. Humans are defined by personality, not looks.

"Holy crap, it's like the book Double Identity. Don't do it! Once the clone finds out they're a clone, they'll never live a happy life.

When I read the title, I thought it meant they were going to literally bring her back to life. That would've been awesome."

YEEESS! So I'm not the only one that read that book.

Yea, seems like what scientists call "cloning" is really nothing like you would think real cloning would be, lol.

I wish they'd stop referring to Cady as "the dead girl"

This is a VERY BAD IDEA. Humans are too damn stupid to use this technology in a fruitful and beneficial way. Someone is guaranteed to screw something up with disastrous consequences.

"I think it's sick from a religious stand point; just my opinion,I'm not trying to egg anyone. It also is wrong on the basis that if babies were to be born of corpses it would happen naturally. "
that was the most retarded argument ive ever heard.


its cruel on the clones really, forget religion, ethics and that, the clone will have a really pooty life

1. this is cruel to the cloned people
2. this is cruel to the mothers unless they knew what they were signing up for
3. This is not the way to solve the population crisis!

I think it's sick from a religious stand point; just my opinion,I'm not trying to egg anyone. It also is wrong on the basis that if babies were to be born of corpses it would happen naturally. Why is the science of cloning people so fascinating? Last I checked we're at 6 billion and counting. Great in a few years not only will I have to fight idiots for air but clones as well.

If you clone the person, then technically it isn't the real person. There is so much that makes this clone like going out to walmart and buying a talking mannequin.

that's creepy to do. Anyway, when I first read that title I freaked out thinking that we are all screwed and the zombie apocalypse was upon us any day now. That douche is going to to be the one who starts it.

It's interesting that Mary Shelly was brought up, because she probably would have been all for the cloning, but maybe would have thought twice when the quality of life for the clone was brought up... that was the point of her book.

I agree with fluffypink or whatever her name is

Religion, Natural Selection - no matter which way you see it - we all know it is wrong.

I dont think it should be stopped because people claim there is a magic man in the sky.
but i think it should be questioned as the clones would have a limited life.

keep religeon out of science.

I think it's too soon for human cloning. We're not ready for that yet.

It's a telomere problem... (in laymans terms) every time chromosomes are doubled during mitosis, the ends of them shorten. This means that when you're older, your DNa is literally eating itself away.
This is why taking a mature person's DNa and introducing it into an egg is flawed as the DNa is already aged - hence all the problems that Dolly the sheep had
