1. Im not holding anyone back. If you want to make the mistake, fine. Human beings will be responsible for their actions. One way or another.
2. even though the extention to 80 years of average life will have an effect on our planet, it will not be as severe as 300+ would be. When our bodies are starting to naturally wear out, thats when its time to go. The lifespan of 30 years was most likely a result of disease, war, etc. But when you die simply because your body can't last any longer, you have obviously hit the limit.
If some one lives naturally to be 100, hey kudos to them. If some one naturally dies at 38, well thats life. I had an great great aunt who made it to 101. It wasn't because of medicine or things like that. She just got lucky, made the best run she could, and her body eventually gave up. She didn't waste her time with what she could do, or what she would do if she had more time, she just went out and did it. How many of us can say the same? We all have dreams and things we like to do, but how many of us do it? Thats something she taught me recently from the grave (she passed this year).

so once the cloning geniuses get thru making exact copies of plants animals and humans that are all identical and a disease comes along (which it always does)that takes out one variety but leaves other varieties alone-------what will the dead and the cloning geniuses have lelt to make copies of ? the dead making copies of the dead? many things such as this insanity should be left alone------- we are not smart enough yet to see far enough in advance all the possible repercussions of our "intelligent" designs wanna be like G-D ideas-----all we could make right now would be frankenstein monsters.
