Conceivably, doctors could soon clone a kidney and transplant it, rather than handing around used ones. I think that's neat. Go Cloning! It'll make life more interesting. Just don't go overboard.

For the record, this is not playing God. I don't buy that in the least.

I read somewhere about it being possible to clone cattle DNA to produce synthetic meat.
I actually think thats a neat idea, too. Dno
I mean, call me weird, but that way we don't need to kill animals as much, or spend as much time and land on animals when we can produce a clone of the real thing. Although that could be more costly, I dunno.
I haven't really researced it.

We'd certainly need to make sure the cattle had no mutations or anything...that would get bad...

Same goes for the Kidneys Think
It would suck if you got implnated with a defective one...

It'd be like getting a tumor implanted or something. Eww. So basically, while we're creating shit, we need to actually be careful and use quality control. Gasp!

Technically, human cloning is already in exsistance. And not in laboratories. That's what identical twins are, clones. It's human reproduction without intercourse. It's beautiful.

I don't think there is anything wrong with cloning as long as it is done with permission. Not like its harmful. And it could help a lot of things.
