Default Clones

What do you think about cloning? Is it right or wrong? As most can probably guess from past threads, I do not think it is right because it is interrfearing with God's plan. Only he can create life. What does everyone else think?

I have mixed feelings.I mean, if they could clone just animals that we need for food, it would help the poor and strvation...I just don't know.

Default Understandable

Yes, I could slightly understand that. But in my opinion, cloning of any kind is wrong because it goes against the bible and should not be done, no matter the reason.

this is a good poll, I have never thought of cloning as something right or wrong just more of a goal scientists have.

Default Cloning

This is an excellent poll. I think I'll move this to the top of the forum.

I have mixed feelings about cloning. On the one hand, there are obvious benefits which modern science can produce via the cloning process. But my personal view is that one must draw the line somewhere. The big question is "where"?

I guess that is right. It is interesting, though. When a clone is made, do you think the poosibility is greater of aa mutation?

Default Mutations

Well, I've already made it clear that I think that cloning is totally wrong no matter what the reason. But, I do think that there can be a bigger chance of a mutation or a smaller one. Wouldn't scientists be able to fix a mutation if it was a clone?

Talking I don't think so

Because the clone would be just like the first one, with the same genetic code. If they can fix normal beings, then I suppose they could fix a clones mutation.
