    No!!! We should breed different types of yeast so that they look taste and smell like meat and other veggies. ^-^ That will solve world hunger.

    Hail Satan.

    Personally, I am against cloning, but not opposed to genetic modification.

    Jakko!!!!
    This is not gonna turn into yet another discussion on religions PLEASE!
    Cloning of DNA and yeast and even of organs would be beyond beneficial for all the world not just humans i'm all for it as long as the organs are incubated rather than part of animals...Genetic modifcation can go too far

    I'm not in that too, but in the mule case, since they were created by human in the first place, they may have the right to do what they want with them.

    I actually like the idea of incubutated organ, but not in the same way as in the serie of books "Dune". x_x

    Hail Satan<--IRC joke Spurgu just made, he's about to get 666 posts.

    I am opposed to cloning because of the moral quagmires it could open up, but think that genetic modification and engeneering is fine, to a certain degree, religion has nothing to do with this.

    Mule hybrids have been around as long as donkeys and horses have been in the same place at the same time.

    And from what I know about global conditions, most world hunger can already be ended, except some warlords use it to control their people.

    i support cloning if they do what they did in the Island


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Or you know in some places the colonist totally fucked up the ecosystem...*cough, cough* like the Congo*cough*


    But i think the idea of hydroponic yeast is kinda cool... I like the idea of actually meat better...but hydroponic yeast is pretty neat.

    Actually, I would be against genetic modification of yeast and grains. There used to be hundreds of varieties of each, but do to mass production in the last fifty years, it has fallen to less than ten varieties of each in abundance. This has hurt the nutrition and survivability in harsh conditions and against disease. The other varieties are now found rarely, in isolated parts of the world. We need to make them more plentiful and hybridize them with the more common varieties, to help them, instead of modifying them.
