    Hahahaha, they have life sentences, they wnt go anywhere, plus security is insane for the experiments. No genetic mutation realistically by this kind of experimentation would be able to withstand huge brunt force. This isn't a movie, dispose of the criminals after testing is complete, they're good for nothing but results, afterwards they can go in the earth.

    They lost all their rights when they broke the laws in such a way anyway.

    depends they could make zombie criminals. i mean that is how all the zombie movies start anyway some scientist thinking that he is cool makes a stupid DNA mutation that he accidently infects himself or someone else gets infected.

    yes i know it is the movies but what they are messing with is real and can have unexpected results.

    It will never get that far. War would erupt during the debate over what color these new people should be.

    Science is easy, sociology is hard.

    No doubt about it, but if you actually read upon what the effects are of the new DNA nucleotide bases you would understand that it essentially helps create more codons to create more proteins which allows for a richer internal environment inside someone. It doesn't take some random person and turn him into a 10 foot tall invincible giant that can withstand 50 Cals. and 120MM smoothbore cannons.

    Point in case, get your mind out of sci-fi, should something go wrong the sheer firepower of security will handle it.

    if you haven't noticed i am being a bit sarcastic.

    I am just urging caution. as what it is suppose to do doesn't mean that it will do that.
    it has nothing to do with sci-fi other than mixing a bit of humor into it.

    I think it is interesting but more research is needed.

    Remember there is no tone in the internet >.> I cannot distinguish anything really other than fact and opinion without at least the help of a smilie (and even then its a grey area).

    In terms of consciousness and spirituality, we might already be immortal.
