Slippery slope

Drudge link, so sue me.

Brit researchers are experimenting with using human DNA in animals.

For one of the few times in my life, I don't agree with Bart Simpson, I don't want my monkey man.

We're getting into an interesting time. We're advanced enough we can start playing god while many of the scientists who are doing so don't believe in a god or in any ethics resembling Christianity.
I don't believe in a god, but I still try to live the rule of "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Which means that, unless you're being an asshole, I try to leave others alone.

I can imagine a time when commies and socialists (who inherently don't have any respect for people not themselves) start breeding "workers". Like people with ape DNA who are very strong and can carry a lot or something.

Interesting times.

1 I agree with you, we don't have to do things just because we can. But I don't think this can be stopped. One or another, it or something like it is going to happen.

2 You're exactly right, there's no answer I can see.
I don't like experimenting on people and I don't like slavery. That's where "designing" people leads.
You'll be bred for certain traits, Soldier, Clerk, Worker, etc. and that's what you'll be.

I think slavery was the most horrible thing we've ever done to each other, not just post-1600, mostly black slavery, but slavery in every society back to the beginning of time, I bet Ugg and Ogg had Ooog, captured from the enemy cave, as a slave back in 42,000BC.

That's the best thing about a democratic form of government, it's hard to have slavery.

3 Maybe. Sometimes I feel like a slave to the IRS.
