Uhhh...yes that picture was disturbing.

Regarding using hybrids for organs, I don't think that will happen. Would probably be easier to perfect cloning organs. Right now the typical kidney recipient gains 5-10 years from a donated organ, which means the organ would have to be replaced every few years if the individual lived long enough, plus they have to take anti-rejection drugs.

Hybrid organs would probably be even more troublesome.

The point regarding who eats other primates, and how it is only banned in the western world is significant. The countries that are chowing down on primates are the least likely to start any sort of hybrid program (except maybe China).

Since this picture was found to be 'disturbing' by a few members (including myself), and the truth was not found as to the validity of the picture. So i tried to do some research, which was difficult, and here is what i found:

The picture is actually taken from behind this famous sculpting that caused internet controversy, and that i am sure most of us have seen.


So put into perspective, the picture is not quite as disturbing as first thought lol.

The incredibly talented artist who created this sculpture and more is Patricia Piccinini, as part of her We are Family Collection.

Thanks for the "rest of the story". Now maybe the nightmares will stop. lol. I have seen pix of the front of the sculpture before, but that rear end shot is truly amazing. The close up detail is astounding!

I find this very interesting. I for one would love for the experiments to take place. I would like to see the outcomes of it. Would the hybrid be sterile? would they look human, chimp? could the vocalize like humans? I don't think it is playing God, as if God didn't want us to try it, we wouldn't have the technology in the first place.
