Cloning is a lot easier than choosing which genes to produce a phenome. If you could do that, then you could build your soldiers/ waiters/ dishwashers/ politicians/ robot underclass, etc.

Oh, wait. No, we can start on the robot underclass now! Now, goddamnit, now!!!

Even if the evolution theory is correct. Theres just too many chemical processes that would have to take place perfectly. Im quite sure that there was somthing out there for all the millions of chain reactions of chemicals to take place. Then PUFF, we are here. All thanks to our lord God.

Clearly science is a mystery to you. A mystery you have replaced with ignorance.

What you are sure of is irrelevant, what is proven with evidence carries considerably more weight

You are forgetting a little and very inconvenient aspect (from the godbots point of view) of time and evidence.

If we came about by PUFF, by magic then there would be no evidence to contradict that idea, unfortunately for godbots there is such evidence.

Hi sweetie, I agree with the uneducated bit, but boring? Depend on your point of view I suppose. I get great entertainment here. Lesser of two evils I suppose, wait twiddling my thumbs and watching paint dry while a frame renders or come on topic and laugh at deliberate ignorance – HILLBILYHIPPYMAN is a prime example.

A human cloning gets you one human newborn. That is all.
No reason to treat it any differently from any other...
Blending sci-fi concepts too. The idea of clones as property isn't as common as that of genetically designed humans. Genetically designed humans does cross several boundaries of ethics.

Even clones made by inserting the nucleus of the parent person into an egg cell will not be clones if the egg does not have the mitochondria of the parent. There will be other changes in the way the genes express themselves due to changes in the endoplasmic reticulum as I remember reading, concerning Dolly and other clones.

The big question is whether or not we can afford to keep a cloned body in a vat somewhere as a spare parts bin, and whether that clones vitality would be sufficient to be used for parts.

I say stem cell research has better potential, but you're still not going to live forever just because the brain is not capable of self-repair and even if it was through stem cell techniques, you'd probably lose most of your early memories in the process. Not much point in living long under those circumstances.

Maybe computer implants! Then you can be a Marvin who always wishes for the good ol' days!

You're being convulted again...because I have no idea of what you're talking about, I never was one much for these "dollies" you project, so can only assume what one or might've offered as being a passing interest, pre-kindergarten age, that of which I outgrew MANY, MANY years ago, once they showed me microscopes!
You don't make the rules of the game...especially and obviously more specifically, in MY game-because I tend to be a rule "practicer" believing that a lot of times, such is GOOD for society, rather than denigrating to

So try this one:

You have to be Original, NOT parrot, squawked and clonedDUH...because that parrot, resquawrked and clonedUH kind of stuff is actually pretty weird...of obsessive stalkers realms, and stalker types tend to be a little freakish, with known psychological problems...and for the more normal, rule considering types of people, it's best to stay away from ones like that.

You can apologize anytime for calling me a childish name though, just don't even bother to address me as "honey" anything-especially disrespectfully...there's very few that I even acknowledge such familiarity from, and anything else, from anywhere else, I attribute to ignorance.

But dew yew have yerself a nice day.
