The Bible, especially the Old Testament, wasn't even written down until it had already existed for centuries as part of an oral tradition. There's no telling how much it had been changed and embellished even before it was put on paper.

What was the original topic, again? dontgetit.gif

Nothing to see here.

Even if there WAS viable DNA (which there isn't of course) I highly doubt modern cloning methods would be able to clone one anyway tongue.gif We've had a pickled thylasine for decades now, but nobody's cloning that.


Oddly.. I just watched Steve Irwin say, while on Animal Planet, say they were going to try and clone from that picked Thylasine...

huh.gif But this is Steve Irwin we're talking about.

he tackles to many animals... and he says he's an animal lover - pfffft.

If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do. The smallest act of kindness can be the greatest thing in the world.

Crikey, what a beauty she would be  laugh.gif


Seriously, they have tried and its not possible to clone a Tassy Tiger from the pickled pup at this point in time. The DNA is just to degraded sadly   sad.gif

Maybe somewhere in the pickeled pup, like deep within the bone marrow there might be dna unaffected by the formaldahyde.  

Steve Irwin may "tackle" animals, but he doesn't turn them into fur coats or  handbags afterwards.  Yes, he is quite an exhibitionist but his work has done much to make certain wild animals, like crocs, far more tolerated, and even liked among the large segment of television watching humans.

Snuffy, I believe this topic strayed to the Bible because of the fundamentalist notion that T-Rex or similar theropod carnosaurs survived the "world flood" by riding in Noah's ark! -- which gave rise to "dragons" mentioned in the Bible after the flood, and other dragon legends.  I think it was meant  just to be a joke.
