How would I feel? Sick. About the human race. Stop playing God. You are not Gods. You are children.


People throw the term "playing God" around a lot. This is not playing God, this is playing nature and if you'll look you'll see we've been doing it for thousands of years. Playing God is using medicine to extend our lives past the natural twenty five or so years.

Don't mess with nature, we developed the way we did for a reason.


And Chimpanzee's are not sapient for a reason too, because our most recent common ancestor split into two groups. How does it make you feel to know that Chimpanzee's came so close to being sentient and sapient but missed out just because they moved east instead of west?

hasnt this story been posted before???

anyways hasnt someone tried that before???
and if they did do it what would be the point?
and he said they could also create a chimera.
so thats all hes doing is building monsters,just cause he can??
he might be an atheist, but i belive he sees himself as God.

(srry i put so many questions blush.gif )


He does not, he's just posing the question which is absolutely legitimate. Professor Richard Dawkins is not a mad scientist by any means.

That is natural, it happens out in the paddock, not in viles in the lab.


And Humans and Chimpanzee's are closer than Horses and Donkeys. Putting two animals in a paddock is not natural, and how do you know a cross between a human and a chimp has never occured in our two hundred thousand year history? Sure, you see a Liger or a Tigon in a zoo and you think it's awesome that is but you picture a humanzee and that's somehow more unnatural and therefore more wrong than crossing a tiger and a lion who are seperated by half a continent.

I have been following this for sometime now and it is interesting topic.  
I think the big Q is why monkeys are immune to our diseases. What we are doing is triggering Evolution an lil faster...But yea, we need no more wars or selfish slaughtering.

Monkeys, apes and other animals are immune to some of our diseases not all. Those they are immune too is normally due to differences of receptor mediated pathogenesis. Basically the "key" doesn't fit the "lock".

It would provide great insight into development, evolution and genetics.

If they're the same thing, then we as a species have been playing God for thousands of years. Whats the difference between breeding the best cattle we can and genetically modifying the best cattle we can? Just large amounts of time. If you're so afraid of playing God, then why would you use contraception, take medicine when you were ill, or look both ways before crossing the road?

Also, if you read the article you woulda seen that Richard Dawkins isn't actually suggesting it, he is just answering the question "what would change the world?" Well one of those four things would change the world forever.

Some of you are watching too much movies for not wanting to see an experiment of this kind.

If someone had sex with a chimp and there was offspring from this act, that would revolt most normal people, and such an act is illegal (I think).  So why does performing this act in a test tube appeal to some people?

Good point.
However, experiments with animals revolts me, genetic modification revolted me, cloning revolted me, all kinds of stuff - but they seem to be doing it anyway sad.gif
so... I think if they did it... we just needed time to get used to it...
one can get used to all kinds of sick stuff and take it as normal...

3. PETA, is what you meant, I'm sure. Violence of any kind is horrible. PETA is an organization that protects animals from things like this and other terrible experiments.


off topic: when i read that i laughed so hard  snice when does Peta protect/save animals oh right never


ontopic  im all for stem cell research as you know it could save a lot of people (and animals for that matter) lives but trying to create a hybrid of a chimp/human might be going a bit to far in my books

While I don't know if this would be the right way to go about it, having another sentient species on the planet would do wonders for the overblown ego of Mankind.

A hybrid chimpanzee-human would be very useful--perhaps to bridge the gap humans have dug between themselves and their furry brothers. Chimpanzees are of equal sapience and intelligence to us: would a human-chimpanzee hybrid therefore be superior to both?
