I wouldn't mind seeing some extinct creatures brought back.
Species that were made extinct by man; I think that might be a cgood idea, rectifying some of the damage that humanity has caused; but I'm not sure about bringing back soem species that died out as a result of naturals selection. That really does sound like tampering with nature, as if we've decided that Nature got it wrong.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

IF they do this and succeed,it would be totally unfair on the creature as it would be used for experimental purposes,but if and when it grows up it might hopefully rip their arms off.Governments should step in and BAN these experiments.What point are they trying to prove ?.

I think nature could get it "wrong" sometimes.
Even so, there are plenty that could be attributed to humans.

Well, if it could rip the arms off someone, Governments might be interested in it. Imagine creating an army of Neathenderthals ... that'd scare the willies off Al Qaeada, surely.

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

I don't see why not, they're the perfect shape for skateboarding, aren't they? Low centre of gravity, long tail for balance etc etc.

It's all a lie by the press, they misunderstood what he said in an interview.  Read this article that shows he is not pursuing this project at all.

I thought he might have been taken out of context. It would just be way too hot from too many angles for politicians to go with it, and any scientist who wants to avoid a massive bashing wouldn't be making noises about that kinda project.
