    I must say this is pretty crazy. And i must also say this is pretty badass.

    Re: 150 human animal hybrids grown in UK labs

    This has apparently been going on much longer than we thought. In the latter years of WWII, England began attempts at human-pig hybrids, hoping to build an elite force of bomb-sniffing pigmen (pigs of course having even better olfactory sensitivites than dogs). Early attempts were highly unsuccessful, and the first major breakthrough wasn't realized until the '60s. Wilbur120209 was the first hybrid that lived for any amount of time outside of the womb:



    A recent wikileaks dump (quickly scrubbed) indicated that the craft was eventually perfected. Perhaps even more disturbing was information confirming that the Brits sent at least one of these hybrids into the US with a mission to infiltrate the government and weaken its economy under a pretense of environmentalism:

    Damn! How did you find out? We'll have to move to Plan B now.

    Well, you are right... I misunderstood the previous articles, close to a year ago that said the FDA had approved these fish, but they've been blocked so far. Also, the article that discussed one of these fish escaping was actually discussing the POTENTIAL escape.

    My bad.

    Beyond that, whatever the percentages are, these fish grow twice as big, twice as fast, are super-aggressive and in closed studies found they would extinct "normal" salmon within 40 generations.
    BBC News | SCI/TECH | 'Trojan gene' could wipe out fish

    To quantify this, the researchers plugged their results into a computer model to find out what would happen if 60 transgenic individuals joined a wild population of 60,000 fish. The population became extinct within just 40 generations. Even a single transgenic animal could have the same effect, they found, although extinction would take longer.
    That is what happens to rats eating one variety of GMO corn. Much more narrow than you are presenting it.
    That's actually just 1 of, I think it must be close to 20 different studies on variety of GMO foods... and MOST all of them are either too short to draw any longer-term effects, or show some negative effects...



    This would be anecdotal evidence at best, but there are DOZENS of stories about animals refusing GMO foods when they have the choice...

    They are not really "news" or "science" sources though, so, I'll let you find your own sources on that matter...

    Blacksites...
    Blacksites is only another word for "secret sites"... Area 51 would count as a blacksite if everybody wasn't aware of it and/or whatever stories have come out about there (true or not, this is only to demonstrate)... and if there are military bases that are kept secret, then is it NOT REASONABLE to assume that there are science labs buried underground where nobody really knows about except those working there??

    It's also easier to "bend the rules" if you're not worrying about any unwanted publicity.

    Or are you laughing because you don't believe that there is such a thing as bases, labs, research facilities, weapons testing, etc, at locations that nobody knows exists beyond those that actually work in those facilities??

    Ok, here's the big question for you :
    Is there any way that you could "prove" that they are ACTUALLY being limited to embryonic development?? Or are you just taking it on faith that this is not being done??

    But to go back to the original source article of the thread :
    However, he called for stricter controls on another type of embryo research, in which animal embryos are implanted with a small amount of human genetic material.

    Human-animal hybrids are also created in other countries, many of which have little or no regulation.

    So really, we're just taking it on faith that these scientists working in these labs are performing "ethical" genetic engineering research, and are not mad scientists trying to see all the different splices they can make of all different forms of life...

    All I'm saying is that this is shocking because of the potential for things to go wrong... and it's better to nip this in the bud instead of allowing a situation like happened with GMO foods, where we were told that because the tomato still LOOKS like a tomato that it's still "SAFE" like a tomato, when pretty much all studies (longer than 90 day studies at least) show at least SOME damage from eating different varieties of GMO foods... here's the problem, these foods are already in the open, they are already contaminating even those that are trying to avoid GMO foods...

    And that's not even touching the moral and ethical arguments for this....

    And you all though Al Gore was crazy when I raved about Man-Bear-Pig.
    Hell, Barfly's talking spidergoats.
    I saw Splice. Human hybrids is all about making kinky sex slaves.

    Is this legit???

    Do you have other sources going along with this??

    Human-pig hybrid embryos given go ahead - Telegraph - This seems to be the original source article relating to this monkey-faced pig... but actionnooz is the blog / digg-type site it came from... anything else as far as this one goes?

    Cows make humanized milk
    Stumbled across this one now too...

    To BmanMcfly

    I don't know how advanced humans are in this discipline in these blacksites where these experiments are performed, but publicly, the extent of our genetic understanding is that the genome has been read, but I seriously doubt that we have more then the most basic understanding of how the actual "code" of genetics works... what this means is that we are MOST likely, because of a lack of real understanding, to create a situation that could put at risk the entirety of human society...

    http://www.somloquesembrem.org/img_e...edingStudy.pdf - what happens to rats eating GMO foods for 3 generations.
    I have not read all the thread but just wanted to come back to this part...You seemed to imply that this study proved horrible effects of GMO on rats in just 3 generations (like hair on teeth or whatever), but I read carefully the study and the conclusions are as follows:

    In conclusion, although the results obtained from this
    study showed minor histopathological and biochemical
    effects in rats fed with Bt corn, long-term consumption of
    transgenic Bt corn throughout three generation did not
    cause severe health concerns on rats. Therefore, long-term
    feeding studies with GM crops should be performed on
    other species collaboration with new improving technologies in order to assure their safety
    So to summarize, no really adverse effect!!!

    Now I honestly wonder, here... where did you see the horrible impact? (and it's not a slanted question, I really want to know...)


    Thank you in advance!

    It's pretty cool with lots of potential for developing treatments otherwise unavailable. People will panic because it has the word "human" in it, but many of us knew this was happening, and there is nothing inappropriate.
    Do you think they might produce a human-politician mix any time in the future?

    That would be against the laws of nature!
