So, will we see human clones in the near future?

Never be done

Already a couple cooking
The US has a clone army in stasis in Greenland

What do you think?

Human clones?  We're still finding the little quirks with animal clones, like accelerated onset of age related diseases.  If human cloning is to be viable, cloning must be at a scientific level far more advanced than what is currently published.  Then again, it's likely some of the more fringe scientists working on it may not be publishing for obvious reasons.

I think it's possible, but we are not likely to see human clones any sooner than 10 years out.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

I hope stem cell research is advanced over the next few years to help with things like tissue replacement, alzheimers, whatever.  As for all out cloning of a complete person, when they want the best sample to start with, I'm sure they have my address on file somewhere.  [:)]  Imagine having 2000 more progun computer geeks running around the country.

I hope stem cell research is advanced as well I think that hold the key o things like spinal cord , and brain injuries. The central nervous system is one of the only aspects of the human body that cannot heal. I, having a spinal cord injury, would VERY, VERY interested in exactly what those  stem cells can do. Eh I'm sure the gov. will outlaw them soon enough so who am I kidding. heres hoping.
