For the issue paper I have chosen the controversial topic of cloning. With the exponential increase in biological technology it has become more possible than ever to clone nearly anything. As long as there is fossil evidence with a trace of DNA it can be done. Even the replication of a live dinosaur is not far beyond the realm of possibilities for this century. Just in this past decade have we cloned human embryos. Even more recently, the embryos of a long-extinct mouth-birthing frog have been brought into life today. Crop cloning has been a long tradition of human culture as we have made the transition from hunter gatherers to the agricultural beings we are today. The pertinent burdens to ths scientific advancement thus far have been the oppositions of religious groups as well as government intervention. There is huge question of morality when it comes to the clonation of humans. Within this matter of contention, there is also the concern as to what rights and laws the reproductions would be bounded to and by. This is the area in which I plan to put focus because the duplications of other species is already widespread and rarely adheres to opposition. The impact of cloned humans would become a chief ingredient to human intelligence. The significance of our epoch and all of its capacity of the accumulating ten thousand years will become ever more meaningful for the next era to come. The quiver left by human clonation may not even be felt by humans. With a whole new method of natural selection, our tremble will leave a rhythm for an entirely new race of beings. They will be the more perfect beings that were created by the application of our cloning. "More perfect" in our eyes today. Though human cloning is not the only thing which should be considered. We have become too eager to clone species which have long been abolished. Survival of the fittest has evolved the biosphere to what we see today. Why should we attempt to bring back an animal that lost this battle in a natural tragedy? Moreover, humans have brought on extinction to a number of animals. Would it be a decent and responsible thing to bring back an animal such as the dodo bird, the fearless prey of sailors from several millenniums ago? It is the issue of morality which dampens our enthusiasm for this research. And as we evolve and reproduce, so does our morality.
