    Default Stupid Question.

    Alright, so everyone knows how now a days we have all this stem cell research and shit. Well, Are our leading scientists idiots or am I missing something? Granted, I know there a bit more to it, but I'd think that by now we'd be cloning organs and shit.

    I mean, everyone's bitching about how ya need to be an organ donor, and the need for organs for transplants because of cancers. Why not just clone the organs? Get people to take the tests to find out if they're compatible or w/e, and if they are, take a few cell, clone an organ, and everyone will be happy. and alive too.

    We could.

    But retarded "life" groups argue that a lot of stem cells come from embryos so scientists are killing potential babies. That argument is enough to stall or stop public experiments of stem cells.

    Did you see the sheeple thread I made a while back?

    In Europe they are hybridizing people with sheep to make transplant organs in disposable sheep hosts. Pretty interesting stuff.

    Somehow I think the possibility of reducing/elimnating illnesses is more important than making more stupid/retarded/emo babies.

    It all comes down to what counts as a living human being. If you start killing those, it's murder. Unfortunately some religions tend to get in the way by insisting that something qualifies as a living human being before the brain kicks in rather than after, which is where I would draw the line. If we didn't have religion this would be going a lot faster.

    That wouldn't work. The cells need to be alive.
