Cybele, human cloning is very possible and could be done right now with enough effort and money. The problem with cloning is that it would always tend to bring slavery back into modern society. This cannot be permitted, so I doubt that cloning will ever be openly done as it threatens the social order.

No.
I was pointing out, on topic, that that is the only species in nature that can do it themselves.
All others would FAIL.
So actually, that had nothing to do with you-unless...are you a mutated tic? Hmmm.
Nope, they don't classify in that category of insects either.
In hard ticks, the female tick attaches to a host and feeds, often for more than 24 hours, before mating. The male tick feeds before mating as well, but he's often a fraction of the size of the engorged female when mating takes place.
Are you lying? What insect can actually clone itself? I know some lizards have that ability through parthenogenesis.

No I'm not a tic like you unless you like my company. ;-)

Well that is just stupid. Why would cloned humans be treated like slaves or threaten social order? Is it because scientists haven't proven anything about the intelligence or health of a clone?

The mechanics of cloning a human aren't any different from those involved in cloning a cat or a sheep.

I'd regard it as inevitable, if indeed it hasn't already occurred.

The aftermath should be interesting.

Two reasons, why we have Civil Law enforcement as well...1) idiots that are sooooo ignorant, that 2)they can only slander and stalk others.
WELL worth the time in "sniffing " them down, like the dogchit they are, and making them accountable for what they let roll across and out of their dumps in my opinion.
But thanks for explaining it to others, who might think the screens they hide behind are somehow "private". Nothing like a good dose of reality :-).
Highly doubtful you have anything more than reading articles as training. If you did, you'd never touch MS Windows, knowing of all the backdoors and loopholes into the system. Sorry, but I'm not believing anything you say now.

Twins.

Besides, if we can clone dolly the sheep we could eventually clone humans deliberately at some point.

If not- then you might check yourself-because I am the type that is very NON-impressed with big pharma anything. In fact- I LOATHE alot of it.

Keep reading. I have other more interesting bits of data I am reading, to myself (because no I do NOT like company when I am doing serious reading, not at all in fact) at the moment. You wouldn't like it-it's very realistic, and truthful--as in very opposite of what the spoon-fed, lemming herd pack media squawk, parrot and ignorantly repeat, would have the masses of dupes believe (but what many never believed to start with--the ones that can handle REAL truths anyway).

Do enjoy learning more about insects though!

Sorry about your wrongness.

The rest-is unavoidable, goes with the territory. I don't waste time worrying about it, I just keep the good stuff AWAY from of the vile hands of debauchery :-).

NO need to apologize, I could care less what you you believe.

Now think about that...and this time interject that little evolutionary concept called "plasticity" into the whole idea.

Yes but cloning an animal is different than cloning humans. We don't raise humans like how we take care of animals. Scientists need to know how a clone affects psychology of both the donor/mother and the clone. Should they be separated or should they have a relationship? Like an adopted child, should she know she is a clone or live a life without knowing it? think about the implications.

I'm curious about why you think cloning would bring back slavery? Is it because of the legal status of a clone?

You've thought about this. A clone would have to be raised by someone. Unless or until technology was developed to transfer the knowledge, personality and experiences of the donor to the clone, the clone would still essentially be a different person. Like a twin born years later and in a totally different environment.

I think people have not learned the lessons of Blade Runner very well.
