Chinese bioethics? - Human & Rabbit fused embryos

This is crazy, the level that geneticists have advanced. I Just watched s03e02 of Ancient Aliens (aliens & monsters), they were talking about chimeras
and whether they were the result of ETs messing with animal and human DNA. At the rate that our modern science is going... It would be a plausible
assumption that those mythological tales could be a result of ET manipulation.
I read this article (National Geographic - linked above), page 2
is where it gets crazy. Irv Weissman
, some talented geneticist, has
already created mouse embryos with human brains (just 1% of a human brain). Anyway, this article is quite old (2005).. I'm looking him up now.
Apparently he was waiting for permission from the National Academy so he could create a mouse with 100% of a human brain. Sure, they say it's for the
sake of science and understanding the embryo growing process.. BUT what if one of these mice got away before they got killed/disposed of? What would
happen if that mouse developed into adulthood and bred with normal mice?
Weissman has already created mice with brains that are about one percent human.
Later this year he may conduct another experiment where the mice have 100 percent human brains. This would be done, he said, by injecting human
neurons into the brains of embryonic mice.
Before being born, the mice would be killed and dissected to see if the architecture of a human brain had formed. If it did, he'd look for traces of
human cognitive behavior. - 2005, National Geographic
Hahaha, I know it sounds ludicrous, but in 2003 the Chinese have already fused human embryos with rabbit eggs. These embryos lived for days until
scientists killed them after their research was complete. WHAT IF these embryos were left to develop and were planted into a womb to grow? Imagine a
human with rabbit-like features haha *sigh*. Christ.. this is crazy.. I know we're all curious, but this is.. it feels wrong.
In addition, Chinese scientists claim to have been cloning human embryos (using rabbit eggs and human DNA) since 1999—two years before U.S.
researchers accomplished this ghastly feat using only human materials—reportedly for the purposes of isolating stem cells and possibly harvesting
spare organs and tissues. The Chinese Ministry of Health recently approved plans for the country’s first state-run stem cell bank, and although the
facility is smaller than stem cell banks in the U.S., it will likely become the largest such bank in Asia. - 2003, Chinese Bioethics?
Just to support the level of scientific advancements... In the 1950s, A Russian surgeon, Vladimir Demikhov, who was the first to successfully perform
heart surgery, transplanted a head of a dog onto another dog... Which resulted in a two headed dog that lived, breathed, had all its senses... It
lived for a few weeks. See any mythological comparison? This was done in the 1950s, imagine what scientists could do now and then imagine what
scientists could be capable of in 20-30 years time.
That story about a scientist, Robert J. White, who transplanted a monkey's head onto another monkey's body was true. There's actually a disturbing
video of it on the web and the scientist's colleagues and family live to tell his "achievement". You'll find proper scientific reports of the
It is strange, it is like science is rediscovering the past.
