Ok, this was a hard topic to pick the location, it fits in zoology as well as biology. So, I chose Biology, if another admin thinks it should be moved to zoology, then just move it. Chimeras (ki-MER-ahs) — meaning mixtures of two or more individuals in a single body Yes, if you had an organ transplant or blood transfusion, then you are considered a Chimera. Twins are also considered Chimeras as well.:D Now, the morality of this science can have some disturbing questions. What if a mouse had human vocal cords and mind and could speak its mind? Although I believe eveything in the universet hat is living has a soul, there are many that think that animals do not have a soul. Would this change their minds? I personally do not agree with animal testing as I feel we do not have right to PRACTICE on any living creature. BUT... I do understand it. We would have alot more deaths with the world from diseases that were cured and found from animal testing. So, although I could not do it personally, I do agree with it. Now, back to the animals getting more human. I would not have a problem with it. My dog that can say "JCM, I gotta go, can you take me out?" would be pretty cool. ha ha Could you imagine a courtroom with a bird that witnessed a bank robbery.. lol But, depending on the circumstances, it could have disasterous effects. Dark Angel anyone? Forgetting all ethics now... This science could help up in whole new arenas of understanding DNA, the Brain, diseases, and the like. Scientifically, this could be well worth it. I enjoyed the part that said that when they transferred a pigeons brain into a chicken, then chicken had characteristics of the pigeon in its movement and way of acting. this is quite interesting as it shows that the brain can be controlled. This will help I think alot in fighting brain type of diseases such a Alzheimers. I personally am for the science, but against the ethics. So, I personally support it and think it should not be outlawed, but I would not personally wan to do it. Kinda like.... I prefer to think that the meat I eat is grown naturally in the package and an animal is not harmed.
