Question: Putting human cells in sheep to create doner livers! Idiots!


Clank101267 - Mon Apr 25, 2005 11:07 pm

you don't screw around with god like that. Genetic enginering is bad news. They are going to end up creating some freaky stuff.
Clank101267 - Mon Apr 25, 2005 11:09 pm

Why? Why? Why are people so stupid????
DaveT - Mon Apr 25, 2005 11:41 pm

Would you be saying the same thing if you were dying from liver failure?
camara - Tue Apr 26, 2005 4:49 pm

Freaky stuff could be cool.
Clank101267 - Thu Apr 28, 2005 12:47 am

Idunno what Id do, but my point is that genetic enginerring could cause worse problems. Like creating weirdo humans.
DaveT - Thu Apr 28, 2005 2:00 am

Still better than dead humans.

It's not only that but there is a lot of testing required before you can start doing something like that, any doctor worth his salt isn't going to give someone a cloned liver from a sheep unless it's proven to be quite safe for human trial and even then it will only be used on people who have no other option but to use that kind of treatment. At least until thorough testing has been done to prove that there are no serious short or long term side-effects.

This is medicine we are talking about, not gambling...

Though I guess if it were gambling, doctors would be card counters.

Without genetic engineering there arlready are plenty of wierdo humans on earth.
There are murderes around, and presidents that make countries go to war. All this is worse than a few human organs growing in a sheep.
The point of new science is to advance us.
Sometimes, yes just because we have created something new or discovered something new, does not neccessarily mean it's good, but we can hope that it will to be good. And the point of this cell experiment is supposed to be good. So have some faith.

Well im not going to get into politics, but I still say it is crazy! Half human half sheep. Sheep cells taking over human. Human saying bahhh!! sheep cussing you out. I don't believe in it. My religion dosnt agree with with it. Therefor I don't. When I say "weirdos" I mean mutants.
Clank101267 - Tue May 03, 2005 10:57 pm

No matter what you say I will never agree with it. I was really mad when they made that clone sheep. And things did go wrong. It aged to fast and died.
