Cloning is certainly going to change agribusiness (livestock growers). Of course, we've had this sort of thing going with grains for some time now. It's not new news.
Ever see those perfect tomatoes? Those huge melons? That's all just genetic engineering.
Science, in and of itself, it not bad. The RR would have us attach a morality to the use of science (they said the world was flat for centuries, and ask us to throw out all reason when it comes to the false belief systems they embrace), but, with proper thinking, one realizes that science is not bad.
Every plant perfect. Every piece of meat perfect, low in fat, resistant to disease and so on.
Man has been short circuiting natural selection for some time now. Fat people live. Diabetics live. Infections get cured. Most of us are benefactors in some way.
The human race is in a unique position. While the religious nuts would attach some moral stigma to science (test tube babies? Who would have thunk in 1960 huh?) we truly are the only species on this planet that can reshape ourselves.
Ponder an amphibious man. With 7/8 of the world's surface covered in water, an amphibious man would change everything about the species. With genetic engineering, we'll probably we able to do just that.
Food is food.
Genetic diversity is important, of course, but, this cloning isn't about genetic diversity. It's about having a perfect piece of food every time, at a reasonable cost, that makes it to market. This science has been applied with plants for a while. It was just a matter of time before it moved to animals.
As gay folk, we / you certainly understand how empowering the technology of The Internet can be.
As usual, it gets down to who gets to be in charge.
Be it sports science / performance, or food engineering, it's all just science being applied.
Sometimes the guestion is just because we can should we?
Myostatin inhibitors are now in test. We WILL see some 400 pound bodybuilders once these become mainstream. We'll also see the fix for many wasting diseases like muscular dystrophy.
Personally, I see nothing wrong with cloning. There's no moral stigma in my book. It's a food source. It's dead meat that gets cooked and put on a plate. I think proper thinking leads one to that conclusion.
