You expressed interest in a discussion of
genetic engineering. Some positions I believe,
for brevity. If you agree, signify by remaining silent. If you disagree, I hope you will teach me something.
1) A cloned human being would be a completely unique individual because he or she would have completely different experiences (chemical and mental) and different ethical decisions to make.
2) The danger in cloning comes from the fact that new powers are normally misused by some who come into possession of the power -- whether it be cloning or another power.
3) I do not believe a clone has the same finger-prints as the 'original' but I would like to hear more about this.
4) Genetically engineered foods are only a danger to the extent that humans have a tendency to make mistakes. Nature genetically engineers our food already.
