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.

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?

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

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.
