Recently I saw a news report where the government legalized the selling of cloned animal produce, if anyone has a link to place here it would be good.

What are our thoughts on the matter?

I am both for cloned food, and genetically modified food, if we can find a way to make cows produce more nutritious milk, good for us, let's dig in.

Besides, the cheaper the food, the more likely we can get steaks over to the countries that need it. Not just steaks either, but the price of sending livestock to developing countries would decrease incredibly, because one center, given one cow, could create an entire herd to dine on.

I think eating a clone shouldn't be worrisome... It is when you start eating clone's of clone's where the mutant birds we will be eating come in to play Smile

If a real human eats a human clone is it still considered cannibalism?

that is what i am trying to figure out...a clone is not a real human and i think christians would agree. so does that mean they can be treated as awful as people treat animals...we can abuse them and kill them for fun and eat them?

Thankyou JLV.

I see no problem with eating/doing whatever the hell we want with human clones on one condition, if the clone does not have a conciousness like ours, then it would prove that God exists, in which case cloned humans would be animals, and we would have dominion over them.

If the clone *DOES* have a conciousness however, they should have equal rights.

I would be against full cloning, but gentically engineered humans? How awesome would that be, we could finally expand into space.

What the hell?

Do any of you know anything about how cloning is done?

It's not like you just push a button on a machine, and out pops a clone. They aren't pod-people.

A clone is born exactly like everyone else.

There is one difference between a clone and other people. Just one: they have an identical twin that is older (or deader) than themselves. That's it.

Do i need to discuss the particulars of how cloning is done, in order to show why what i say is true? Or is it clear already?
