Sorry, I don't DO stuff like that. Ewe.
Is "ewe" another secret code like "tic"? Really, it would help if you just posted your comments above the table for all to see. People are starting to ignore all comments from Kentucky now!

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!

Yes we know the earth is not round but please advise how you know the universe is round?

You appear to have an insight that no one else in the world has, including the worlds leading astronomers and cosmologists

Oh sorry, was I addressing yes another sock of you? Well in that case I don’t give a wet fart for what type you are, and of course that explains the deliberate ignorance and stupidity I detected in your posts. Honey bitch, when you insult me then I insult you right back, rules of the game. You don’t like the rules of the game then go play with you little dollie;.
Uhhuh.'Nuff said.eh???
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.

Ahh, yet another clone, how original, parrot what???

Not surprised you have no idea, you being so short in the comprehension stakes as you are but that’s acceptable from you.

No I don’t make the rules of the game, I just follow the rules of the game because I enjoy the game. You may be too ego-testical to realise that topix is not YOUR game but the game of any one who wants to contribute and when you attempt to insult those other players then you should not be surprised at the comeback.

Uhhuh.'Nuff said.eh???

What have parrots got to do with you objecting to people having there own view? With people having a different outlook to you? From your point of view I would have thought one so vocal as you about originality would consider that as originality – hypocrite much?

No need to apologise for fact honey bitch. See, not your game… Live with it

So you admit your ignorance, well done, very brave of you.

Yes your are very trying

What is “dat ignoRANTs outa”?, I am dyslexic and do have real problems when faced with deliberate stupidity

And it looks like you are now issuing threats, perhaps you should read the topix TOC before continuing with this game that you dream of owning

<quoted text>. WHY would ANYONE want to CLONE anything? It's like creating ARTIFICIAL Flavors from the Original NATURAL Flavor?? The taste is NEVER exactly the same.. THERE is a slight difference.. BUT I just can't put my finger on it.
A clone of you still has everything you have, nothing would be different. Except for personal life experiences there is no biological difference. There would possibly be a few minor DNA bases different, but that happens with natural born twins too.

Well, you're mistaken. Lots of plants can create clones or sexually reproduce. They decide which to do based on the environmental conditions around them. In favorable conditions, clone. In poor conditions, sexually reproduce.
Some lizard species are 100% clones - no male offspring, only females. All daughters share 100% of their genes with their mother, minus mutation.
All identical twins are clones. There's about 8 primate species that only reproduce in twins - golden lion tamarins, for example.
I honestly wish people would learn more about biology before they make pretense to authoritative statements about it. It's just misleading behavior.
In case you're wondering, most social insects are not actually clones of each other.
Yes I've heard of plants and lizards that can clone itself through pathenogenesis. Other than that, no other animal species are known to have this ability.

A twin is different really because twins still have the DNA of both parents from sexual reproduction, not from cloning process.

Yah I don't know where someone here got the information that insects clone. lol

Yaaay!
What other theories would you like to "confirm" after the fact, with your own guesses?
I'm not sure but something does interest me. I read somewhere that genetic mutations take place in the cloning process and that it could be lethal that's why clones die off. I can't stop but wonder why this happens and how it could be fixed! lol
