I'll make l answermug short. I believe humans have evolved in some ways--technology, academic intelligence, but we have devolved in other ways--lack of respect, people can't hold a conversation, etc.

Mankind has created, invented and cured his way to a longer and more comfortable life, but he's also created many ways to eliminate the human race and other species, with the quickest way being a simple push of a button.

Well, there are some lives it hasn't made an impact on, take for example the third world.  It's strange because I remember when Bob Geldof first spoke about the starvation in Africa, it was in the 1980s.  We are now in 2017, in our country alone we still have at least 3 big fund raises … Read more

Their rights would/should also … Read more

Honestly, I don't think cloning any animal is a good idea. As for cloning humans I think it is even worse. I saw a show or movie years ago where a couple wanted to clone their child who had passed away or was on life support. The doctors who were contacted to do the cloning … Read more
