    I don't know if I buy this conspiracy theory. They are already importing new Democrats from across the border. Why do you think obama refuses to secure the border?

    You have a point. They import some, make new poor ones, and recruit the young ones. Yep it makes sense.

    @jessejaymes - To have heard some of my ex-girlfriends talk, I qualified. But that was some years ago. I believe I have been domesticated by now....

    @jessejaymes - ..But if not, just to further the interest of science, I'll volunteer to plant the seed. Bound to be more fun than what that Dr. had in mind.

    Apparently this fellow is unaware of the last surviving colony of Neanderthals - the Westboro Baptist Church.

    Oh, wait, WBC are just knuckle-draggers, not a species of human.

    Carry on.

    If you ever get a Delorean with a flux capicator you need to go apologize to Neanderthals for that statement.

    @Cheenoguy-- Had to laugh at that one. Even if we concede that lawyers are the modern Neanderthals... WBC is in a species of their own.

    Dam! You beat me to it. Logged on to say neanderthals are not extinct, now day we just call em republicans.
    In fact, I though Neo was just a diminuative of neanderthal :)

    @Neo_NtheMatrix no... that you're still stuck in your proverbial quag-mire and haven't screwed up the courage to look for canada yet.

    @dances-weebles who would go to harvard other than democrats, liberals and gays? I think the cloning is a good idea, IF the professor pays to take care of the kid once it is born. I.E. food, clothing, shelter, education etc etc etc...His idea, his responsibility.

    @Republican5001 Um, dubya went to Harvard.....guess that makes him a gay Dem liberal?

    Cowards, just kidding. But for real if you look at the full sized pic, I could name at least two different families whose male offspring look like the Neanderthal's direct offspring. What happens in SW VA stays in SW VA...evidently.

    We need to focus on cloning oragns for the humans that are suffering now. We have enough babies, not enough usable organs. Cloning organs would also do away with all the negative transplant meds.
    We could do it!

    although that's a wonderful idea, it's already been worked on. what this professor hopes to do is to strengthen the human genome by introducing new, stronger genetic material into the species. it's really not a bad idea considering the fact that there are so many weak minded evangelicals and other ultra conservatives there are running around.

    @Penn1699 not necessarily so. look at metal alloys. gold itself is extremely soft and weak, but it still exists. when blended however, with other metals, the gold becomes much harder and more durable. it's quite possible that the human genome will be the same... we just don't know, but it'll be great to find out.

    Imagine the reality based entertaiment....it would keep the low info voters busy for years following the adventures of "caveboy and the baby momma"...;-)

    Liberals!! Exactly like Hitler! Making the perfect human! Let me guess, this will be funded by Obama! My skin crawls. Cant anyone else see whats happening?

    @dances-weebles Hitler was a Fascist, he was not a Liberal or Conservative.
    He was also insane with power, a narcissist, and pure evil.

    @mimi57 he was also a conservative christian. although he started out as a socialist democrat he later changed and modeled himself after his fascist italian neighbor benito mussolini. pure evil? who's to say. by all reports he was an extremely 'moral' man.
  • #64

    @dances-weebles How can you say that?... He killed over six million Jews. That is not moral, that's pure evil, or insane power. Pick one?

    @dances-weebles ..How do you figure Hitler was a Christian, conservative or otherwise? He certainly didn't follow Christ's teachings. Just because Hitler may have claimed to be a Christian doesn't make it so anymore than going to church makes one a Christian.

    No scientific research is worth the torture of a human, this is unethical, unGodly, and unwanted! Why would we want that type of diversity anyways?

    This day on Topix has ranged from nitpicking to the absolute absurd. There is no possible positive need to clone neanderthals. This guy needs to have his cleaned. Then cloned. Bats in the belfry.

    @jessejaymes Is this the new value of human life, make your own circus attraction for your own selfish reasons? Don't we have enough challeng with our own gene pool?

    @dances-weebles Because its unethical, for one.
    Do you really need to have it explained to you what a terrible idea this is?
  • #46
    !
    @Mogal yes, please...'unethical' how? it's no more unethical than using stem-cells to build heart valves, bypass veins and arteries, build new kidneys and repair spinal columns. it's also no more unethical than creating female sperm from a woman's own stem cells and using that sperm to fertilise her own ovum. why do you seem to have a problem with strengthening the human genome by the addition of new material?
  • #49
    !
    @dances-weebles Stem cells, etc are a far cry from creating a human being from an extinct species.
    Every hear of medical ethics?

    Is this where Paulie Shore jumps out and says we've been Punk'd? Seriously, instead of using our time and resources to cure diseases, explore the universe, and rehabilitate species on the BRINK of dying not through evolution but because of us...THIS is what we're considering?

    @Bobolinsky Bio-Dome was his worst....ugh....I still haven't gained back the iq points lost watching that one....
    As to this Harvard professor....I don't....and we're supposed to trust them that evolution is real and creation isn't?
    There is many more things we could be using money to do research on that would actually to humanity good....
    I think he got it wrong though....shouldn't it be dinosaurs that he is cloning?
    Maybe an alien from Roswell?

    About as intelligent as bringing back a Tyrannosaurus Rex from DNA from prehistoric fly blood. The whole world has gone nuts!! By the way.... Piers Morgan is an Asshole!! Oh sorry...that just felt so good to say..thank you.

    FOLKS: The article referenced has been quite MISQUOTED! The above story is an outright lie. Shame on you, you rotten writers!

    Don't laugh but I was in the Army and while stationed in Germany I was in the same Unit at Pulaski Barracks, Vogelweh, Kaiserslautern with a fellow, who was born the same exact day as I, who looked like the 20-something version of this guy. He was from Chicago, and his last name was Szmutzko. I don't see anything wrong with the experiment. Cro-Magnon was allegedly responsible for the extinction of Neanderthal, so that apparently it is Cro-Magnon, our ancestor, who is the 'killer' of the species. Neanderthals had much larger brains, and for all we know did not have the homicidal instincts of Cro-Magnon, thus their extinction at the hand of Cro-Magnon. Bring back our long lost cousins!
