Does anyone know of some ORGANIZED religious opposition to this stuff?
I mean, I'm purely of the belief that there is no fatherly sky being that is going to reach down and save your bacon because you pray -- mainly
because he doesn't SAVE people in Ethiopia who probably deserve it more than the people who THINK they got their prayers answered.... I'm mostly a
"I don't disbelieve it until I have proof but I don't believe it until I have proof" kind of guy.
... so I'm FOR a lot of science -- but I'm firmly against most of this corporate-led cloning, frankenfoods, and most of all -- human animal
There are a lot of human genes being put in Pigs, so that their organs are more compatible for harvest. A lot of times -- this is merely to
"sensitize the immune system" and isn't transferred to offspring, much less creating a mutant. But who is to say that some corporation, doesn't
decide to make a "better product" and implant the genes in the ovum and BREED more human-pig hybrids to save money.
And to save even MORE MONEY, they can raise them outdoors -- rather than in a protected lab. Just like the Franken-plants that can cross-pollinate
with other species.
>> Sure, sure, SOME companies may have standards -- but as we know, if there isn't strict oversight, SOMEBODY is going to cut corners.
>> I really hope we don't get some hybrid slave race, or abused creatures that are MORE aware of their situation. I already believe it is wrong to
raise pigs for food -- because they are smarter than dogs and are AWARE of what is happening to them -- unlike Cows and Chickens.
>> But why aren't the religious groups showing more outrage? I'm sick of these anti-abortionists messing with women's rights, and the
anti-stem-cell nuts who pretend to care about a few human cells while fertility clinics flush them in the millions every day -- to me MOST of the
moral outrage from the Religious community, is about Social Engineering and NOT about true ethics. It's grand-standing to keep the faithful engaged
But if anything could be considered "against God" -- it's human-animal hybrids.
Not that I don't think we might be better off as a species by recognizing MORE forms of intelligent life -- but, I'm worried about the abuse of
these creatures while we grow up. I'm also REALLY worried about transgenic diseases that can gain a vector to humanity via these hybrids, which is
a HUGE HEALTH RISK!
