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

Never be done
More than ten years
Less than ten years
Already a couple cooking
The US has a clone army in stasis in Greenland

What do you think?

You forgot the "The U.N. has a Clone Army in Greenland" option. [:D]

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.
