|To find cures, is one thing. To clone another human being...well, isn't that man playing God? Thing is, the clone will only LOOK like the other person, for he/she will have his/her own personality. The soul cannot be cloned! Now, there's something to think about.

|I am going to be the odd man out. I am in a way in favor of stem research so long as this to cure disease, but not to clone another being, human or animal. Do you know wht scientists experiment on cloning? Because there's money in it. Ask them to research on AIDS and they shy away. In the past years of 1400 medicine in reseach only 16 tried to find a solution for pneumonia. No money in it. Yet in Africa, your continent, each year 1.9 million children die of this disease. So some countries like UK, Italy, Canada and Norway are pooling money to give to scientists to try and develop a vaccine. Shouldn't we be proud of our scientists? Victor|

|It has always been this way, Abdi-noor, science always faces opposition from those who believe that only God should be able to do certain things. Even penicillin was met with great resistance and inoculations against diseases were thought to interrupt God's plan. The first “test tube” baby had to have her identity hidden so that she could live a safe and normal life...even Jonas Salk met with resistance and threats upon his life when he brought the polio vaccine to the people. It takes time for people to adjust to the changes that science brings to our world, but it seems, these things eventually become commonplace and the resistance to them wanes as the benefits become apparent. Lots of wisdom in this write, Abdi-Noor.

|NO SCIENTIST EVER PLAYED OR WILL PLAY, "Playing God", for "God" is just a contraction of German words, meaning, "SALUTE TO ZEUS", and a scientist will never use words that she/he doesn't know the etymological foundation.
"Cloning" is a striking thoughts' composition that has paid its poetic dues with golden and platinum coins.
In reverent admiration,

|Great minds” He said “
Often face violent opposition
From mediocre minds”
How sadly true, in so many fields of endeavor.
