    Scientists have created the world's first human-sheep chimera - which has the body of a sheep and half-human organs. The sheep have 15 per cent human cells and 85 per cent animal cells - and their evolution brings the prospect of animal organs being transplanted into humans one step closer.

    What do you think is going to happen in the future?

    I find this a bit disturbing, but my thoughts on it are just a downward spiral of negativity.
    There's great posibility in medical advances through this, but it's just a little weird for my taste...

    These must be those human-animal hybrids Bush spoke about...

    What are your thoughts on this?

    I was watching the Colbert Report or Daily Show and either Stephen or Jon mentioned this. He said something like, 'Now, a sheep smart enough that can sheer itself, knit a sweater, put it on, and realize it's very itchy.

    I don't like cloning or genetic engineering available to the public or even to governments, but we need to progress scientifically. The problem is this technology will be used for a clone army (like Star Wars :p) eventually. I support research but not putting it to practical use.

    LOL
