Default Eugenics is back on the menu



They have created Spider-Goats.

That is to say Goats that have spider genetic material and when you milk them, mixed with the milk is the silk of spiders.

Thank you Utah State University.

Anyone else think this is abhorant...and completely unethically sound!

They want to farm it because the silk is very very, VERY strong...and they declaired Spiders were not farmable because they killed one another.

I heard they (spiders) were not used because they just don't spin enough silk at one time to be profitable. That's why silk worms are farmed rather than spiders.

I read that the farmed "goat silk" will be used to make military armor, etc., which will theoretically be much stronger than what we have now. On the one hand, I am grateful for anything that will save lives of our military. But I am uncomfortable with all this genetic cloning and experimentation. It seems wrong and where will it end?

ohh...yes...they have positive uses...like the yeast cells they are teaching to perspire petrolium rather then alcohol...you know, end of the depandancy on finite oil fields.

The point is not whether the results can have good uses...it whether it should be done.

This ISNT mere cloning...this is "creating" you can only clone what already exists.,..it just means copying something that already exists.

No...these Spider Goats DO NOT exist in the wild. They are a Human CREATED species. This is the next step of Genetically modified

First we copied (Clone)
Then we enhanced (Genetically modified)
Now we are CREATING...we arent modifying a natural thing...or copying a natural thing...we are creating a life form which GOD did not create. We are designing from scratch, at a microbe level...a completely new form of life. One which we designed, fully.

Thats soooo wrong its unspeakable
