Speaking of rising above animal acts...
Why is it that when discussing other people's ideas that there's always a fight? I think it's pretty sad. This discussion is totally academic, it's not exactly like it would decide the future of food production - so why can't it stay peaceful?
TJ, jackjohnson's remark was rude, but you do not need to punch him in the face. Jackjohnson, TJ punched you once, why do you have to punch back three times to get even? Folks, I've seen this behaviour in the sand box and in world politics, but there's no place for it in these forums. Try to rise above it, or it'll be me who's gonna leave, and I'll definitely take the key to these boards with me.
TJ, about cloning animals: If you make an ear in the lab, they take your own cells to generate it, so the ear has your genetic pattern. I guess that when you grow meat in the lab, you'd probably take a random cow to grow the cell tissue, and all meat will then - genetically - be from the same animal. I admit that it's not the same as breeding a herd of genetically identical cattle, but many of the issues that are currently discussed in the cloning debate do apply.
