can we play god


Recommended Posts

Mixing DNA seems to fail when the species are even a little different.

 

Actually, cross-species hybrids are very, very common in nature and cultivation, and I'm even aware of 3 cross-genus hybrids (one of which is between species separated by ~90 million years).

I think we are way too primitive and i am not sure if we have reached that stage yet and i am not sure if with our processing powers we are capable to do so, but anything is possible, we need to be optimistic.

what you are suggesting is called a cross-breeding. nothing to do with playing god here.

Wouldn't "playing god" imply that we were pretending not to exist? :rolleyes:

 

SFN is NOT a platform for you to promote your insidious personal agendas and Prejudices, I won`t tell you again!

Well, that's surely a relief. I appreciate your willingness to be reasonable on this point, as I was getting tired of your lack of tolerance on opposing views. I feel we're finally making progress. :)

 

 

More seriously, though... That post was made more than two months ago, YT. Punishments are most effective when they happen immediately after the act, not 1/6 of a trip around the sun later... It's off topic, but I've got literature I can share in support of this point if you want it.

It depends what god does. Processes such as genetic modification require the mixing of genes from two different species, for example the glow in the dark pigs, the regular pig gene is mixed with a jelly fish gene and is inserted into a zygote of a pig. This creates the glow in the dark effect.

would it be possible to take a sperm cell and an egg of two different animals combine them and grow a new animal or with the cloneing rather than using one animal to clone from take two

Not unless hybrids were naturally possible between those species.
