Attention, The Ladies. Are you bored with your daily routine? Could you use some spice in your life? Need a bit of excitement? Well, you should consider volunteering to house a Neanderthal clone in your womb to help save the human race from certain, impending doom that—for now—is simply hypothetical.
Harvard geneticist George Church is seeking an "adventurous female" to give birth to a Neanderthal clone he says he can create by artificially creating DNA using samples from fossils. Church says he'd inject the artificial DNA into a human embryo and then implant the embryo into the womb of the surrogate mother.
He thinks that bringing back Neanderthals would help humans in the event of a massive disease outbreak or impending doom of Earth.
When the time comes to deal with an epidemic or getting off the planet, it's conceivable that their way of thinking could be beneficial.
Science! Oh, if you were wondering alound about the legality of Church's Flintstones-Jetsons hybrid project, rest assured knowing that his idea is so close to the edge that the law might not be able to keep up.
But Professor Church's proposal is so cutting-edge that it may not be covered by existing laws.
However, experts worry that neo-Neanderthals might lack the immunity to modern diseases to survive, and some fear that the process might lead to deformity.
Maybe we could get Pauly Shore and Sean Astin to babysit? One at a time, The Ladies. One at a time. [Daily Mail]
