Someone\’s been reading the old Isaac Asimov stories again

\’I can create Neanderthal baby, I just need willing woman’
A scientist has said it would be possible to clone a Neanderthal baby from ancient DNA if he could find a woman willing to act as a surrogate.

It might indeed be possible but it\’s still remarkably akin to one of those stories.

  1. But he has got it all wrong. He should be watching Hammer films. That way he would know you have to start by *kidnapping* a woman. Preferably a young comely lass in a white nighty.

  2. He’d better not do the experiment in the UK. What with the Child Support Agency trying to trace a father dead 40,000 years & social workers insisting on a family of it’s own ethic group to foster it…

  3. ““When the time comes to deal with an epidemic or getting off the planet or whatever, it’s conceivable that their way of thinking could be beneficial.”

    WTF???

    “The main goal is to increase diversity. The one thing that is bad for society is low diversity.”

    Of OPINION. We have low diversity of OPINION, that is the problem. It is perfectly possible to increase the diversity of opinion in our society without cloning a fucking Neanderthal.

    For example, people with opinions to the right of Obama could be listened to and agreed with. That’s a start.
