I wonder if a half rack of barbeque woolly mammoth ribs would taste good?

Wasn't it written in revelations "the dead shall walk upon the earth" didn't say what species of dead, or did it?

I'm sorry if I'm incorrect just had that thought and found it interesting. Anyway cool thread. Science is awesome.
P.S I'm an atheist

Are these things dead? (the embryos)

I wouldn't hazard a guess in the cryptic writing of the Bible. I am not good at deciphering that, and it takes a LONG time to research it and get to the bottom of what they said and what it meant culturally, and then you have translations.

Old technocrat hosted "science documentary" about the future of genetic engineering. Can't give you a source, watched it on Yutube few years ago. They were precisely expressing their aims and it was looking more like fantasy than real, yet the "scientists" were speaking quite seriously. Take my word for it. Couldn't dig anything interesting for you, but this pdf sheet caught my attention.

You all just don't get it.

Is the above picture of Superman stepping on a Lego over the top?
No.

Is me shooting out all my neighbors windows over reacting?
No.

Is me kidnapping college co-eds to repopulate the earth after the monsters take over, crazy?
No.

Is me taking a dump on my bosses desk going over-board?
Yes. I am the boss and now I have a giant poo on my desk.


This kind of thing has risks. It says so in every monster movie. Ever.


But no one ever listens until the hot chick gets killed.

There might be some already perfectly preserved in the permafrost or some ice cave waiting to be dug up defrosted and cooked to taste.

This is really cool, and tells me that we could introduce genetic diversity to animals that have a low gene pool currently.

my #1 question - do we NEED a mannoth ?

seriously - this is a lot of work at cutting edge genetics - to creat a " mammoth "

i personally would rather see the funds equiment and expertise re-tasked to a food or medical program to either erradicate a genetic desiese or improve a staple crop that will deduce world hunger

mammoths are cool - but do we need them ??


We are going to learn an awful lot through the process of doing this.

For that reason alone, it is definitely worth doing in my opinion.

Your mileage may vary...

The reason this is being done is because it can be.

Like many things in life, this is seen as a challenge and who knows how this will fold onto other things.

Slippery slope,

It will be interesting to see a mammoth. Will this is a discovery channel or maybe a pay perview to see the little mammoth for the first time?

It's all fun and games until the new species summons Cthulhu and the world ends. . . . .

Imagine millions of these magnificent beasts once again roaming the plains in massive herds spanning every direction, as far as the eye can see; The majesty--The awe-inspiring beauty--The flatulence--The Global Warming...
