Cloning animals? Jul. 7th, 2005 @ 01:08 PM Reply

Have you seen that article on the news? Scientists are cloning animals just to kill them again, just so they can use the meat to put on the market? How would you feel if you knew you were eating cloned meat? Personally, I'd feel a little grossed out.

Thoughts?

If I was being cloned simply for meat, and I knew that, I'd go on a FUCKING RAMPAGE, like anything else sane would ;)

Something just occurred to me....what if there's chemicals (maybe harmful) in the cloned meat? It could make you sick or something....

Thats basically what that movie coming out "The Island" is all about. Cloning people to use their body parts. Hey while it may be cruel, we dont have an infinite amount of animals and I'll be damned if I dont get my double whopper with cheese!

Well, a clone is THE EXACT SAME THING. It's no different than eating the original one. Nothing to be grossed out about. It's just like saying, "oohh I like this original ice cream, but it makes me puke if I eat the cloned one." No offense, but it sounds kinda stupid.

Well, cloning animals for the economy is okay i guess.

Its cloning animals to replace a pet that died that pisses me off.

If you can't cope with a pets death, then you might as well not have one.

Ice cream is dairy food. I'm talking about meat, cloned meat, and the possibilty that there may be harmful chemicals in it.

harmful chemicals like what? if they had harmful chemicals in they wouldn't release the meat into the market.

The news said it might be on the market next year, that means, right now it's just a prototype, something in development. And what I meant in the first post was, would you eat it as it is, now?

I honestly think the cloning thing is a hoax. The only way to successfully create an animal is to successfully copy the zygote, an unnaturally complicated cell. Since blood does not contain a zygote, this cannot succeed.


Drama is my anti-drug.

I actually have no problem because less origional animals will be killed for meat. One of these days scientists will have to clone resources.

We had this discussion before, when sheep was getting cloned in Scotland just to feed their sexual desires.
