Re: Mice given bat-like forelimbs through gene switch

Genetic manipulation, as in cloning, or producing new organisms by combining the DNA of one organism with that of another, is morally wrong and ecologically extremely unwise. Anyone who doesn't know that probably isn't going to be convinced by me.

One poster has his issues mixed up. The use of stem cells in medicine has nothing to do with genetic manipulation.

I don't know if this is on topic here, but genetic manipulation
is not a good idea.

Could you elaborate? Especially, why is it not a good idea _in this instance_?
