I would not partake in this sick and twisted technology anymore then I consume the diseased and tortured flesh of the factory farm animals.

Alright, that is obscenely contradictory, if I do say so. You say you're an animal-rights advocate, and yet you think this is sick? by iceofspades

Obscenely contradictory, why? Because I believe DNA manipulation of this sort is completely unethical and immoral, and tampering with nature in this manner is attempting to play God. I also believe "factory farms" horrible examples of modern science.

If people want to continue to eat animals, and unfortunately most do, then humane farming should be the only accepted protocol.

This world is getting sicker by the minute. Even though I'm a vegetarian and strong advocator of "animal rights," I find the entire concept of engineered meat straight out of the "Twilight Zone."


I'm curious from what moral or ethical position you derive that attitude. In what way would engineered meat be "sick"?


If they can do this, does this mean they'll be growing human body parts soon as well. Hell, maybe they already are.


Let us hope so. If you needed a new liver or heart, and they could grow one in a vat using your own DNA so there would be no rejection, what could possibly be wrong with it?

Admittedly, I'm a "baby boomer" and probably not as open minded to new technology as the younger generation. Nevertheless, I still think it's creepy and that's my prerogative.

Why not make this meat totally acceptable to your particular body by growing it from your own genes or even your own tissue?

Wait that doesn't sound right.

How about this.

Why not make this meat totally acceptable to your particular body by growing it from your own genes or even your own tissue?

Okay I might be repeating myself.

Try this.

Why not make this meat totally acceptable to your particular body by growing it from your own genes or even your own tissue?

It's coming be prepared !

Interesting article. I have no moral qualms about lab grown meat (although I wonder if, like so many other synthetic alternatives, it will taste as good as the real thing...)

Frankly I think though that this isn't as necessary as it seems. It may be useful for the days when we colonize space and can't take animals with us, but here on Earth I think we have all the farmland and animals we need to feed the entire population. The reason so many people go hungry is more to do with politics and economics than actual lack of resources.

I believe there's room for all GOD's animals, right next to the mashed potatoes.

Mayby they can grow fruits & veggies in a petri dish too. Oh what the heck, let's go whole hog and grow gravy & mashed potatoes as well, plus all our favorite desserts. What I really want is one of those food & drink thingees off of Star Trek.
