What are you talking about? Read my post again. That quote is not my words, but I agree with them. How do you get that humans are not natural from that? You just want to believe what you want, and will twist words to get the meaning from them that you want. Humans have been putting themselves up above other animals for years, check out how Christians believe(d) that animals don't have souls, yet humans do. Now, I am far from being Christian. Humans have already changed the face of this Earth to suit themselves. We have brought to extinction many, many animals and plants. We have poisoned this ... [More]

First of all I am not gonna get all high and mighty and say that I know what God is thinking, what would be the point of God of we all knew what he was thinking. What I am saying is my belief. And yes, I do know that not everyone believes in God and I recpect that and I hope that they will respect my beliefs also. I believe that just b/c God hasn't smited the researchers down doesn't mean he believes what they are doing is okay. How many rapists and murderers are running around loose. You can't honestly believe that if there is a God that he thinks its okay just b/c he hasn't smited them down.... [More]

I know plenty of sheep that talk. Some are on this site. Ohhhh burn. This is a disturbing trend though if they aren't limited to what kinds of things they can do.

I totally don't like all of the weird things that humans are doing to EVERYTHING, i.e cloning, genetically modified foods, etc. But, unless you are a hardcore vegan, it's a little ridiculous to worry about the plight of the poor sheep. If you know anything about the food processing industry at all, you know that they waste NOTHING. I worked in a seafood processing plant for two years. Everything is used, and I mean everything. Even the "sawdust" from cutting frozen swordfish steaks is squeegied off the floor, boxed up, and sold to catfood companies. This is not done out of a "waste not, want n... [More]

Ohhhh burn. This is a disturbing trend though if they aren't limited to what kinds of things they can do. :lmao: I don't think its such a problem though. The fact is that if it results in a=improved medical facilities then so be it. Personally I am hopeing that this will lead to increased acceptance of stemcell research, something that really is necessary.

Science is scary, so many people capable of abusing it

A step closer to curing horrible illnesses. Also, saying it is "15% human" is misleading. That's like calling someone who had a pig heart transplanted in them to be "10% pig" or something.

I don't know about this. Aren't there people who take on some of their organ donor's behaviour? Like that biker guy who got an old lady's kidney and started knitting or that man who started cooking like his wife? What will it be like for those who have those half-human organs from sheep?
