Default Re: Debate: Human Cloning- Your thoughts/Ides?

I think they should adapt cloning into body part regeneration. Cloning a human person to make another separate entity is wrong. I like the idea of "wirelessly" controlling another body (Avatar). Unfortunately, I don't know many useful applications if the former is achieved.

That's exactly what I feel. The lack of knowledge really degrades one's intelligence. It's kinda sad when you think about it

Disabled people.

I mean, full paralysis. not like someone who is in a wheelchair.
This is the only time it would really be worth the effort.

But if they were to do that, they would have to create a person without a consciousness.

Not sure if its been said.

but the only cloning i would accept is for the creation of organs for emergency uses

EX: heart, liver, kidneys, ect

Stem Cell Research has great potential to.

The whole "when does life start" debate. I really don't think it makes that much of a difference to kill an embreo unless they are actually concious.

And by not doing stem cell research you are killing me. And I have feelings. Embryos don't.
