You know, as a South Korean I expected a dog-eating joke on the top comments. You never cease to amaze me funnyjunk. I'm so proud of you.

Honest question, when the animal is cloned, does the clone think exactly like the animal? Like if someone cloned me, and I thought about killing my clone, would that mean that my clone wanted to kill me?
#445 to #441 - lunarsandwich (07/20/2013) [-]
That's an interesting thought! o-o
but no, I'd guess that it's more like having a twin, similar thought patterns but their experience from creation on would be different and influence their patterns differently
it's not like you have telepathy over your other person, and can influence their thoughts...
"twin, give me $20" or other more ********** things, you sick individual

One of these days humans will be cloned, I need to know if I can trust mine.

Animals do not have the same thought processes we do. And just because they are genetically identical, does not mean they will all behave the same. Take twins for example, diffirent fingerprints, diffirent personalities sometimes diffirent heights, ect.

because humanity also have morals. once you officially cloned a person, you believe that you are a god, and begin disregarding life of others because you created one without the need of sexual reproduction, and will do it again if you so please. to copy and modify the genes of your species, making new ones, is just so wrong and weird. its uncanny, and it makes the clone reside in the uncanny valley: Human, but not resembling or not representing it.

Im an athiest, but i think Man should never try to play god.
User avatar #407 to #376 - jockothecrock (07/20/2013) [-]
i kind of agree what he wrote there. imagine you cloned someone and made it so they can glow in the dark, or some other weird and unnatural trait is wreird. imagine you walk down the road, and then you see a man, glowing completely in the dark, and walking towards you. and when we do make a clone, how are we going to treat them? are we going to act like they are just some sort of copy, and treat them as third class citizens? do we accept them as part of our society? or are we the type of monsters who will make clones work for us as slaves or indentured servants, all because they are not original or natural? what most of you guys fail to see is that your making a copy of a sentient being. this copy has its own personality and traits, how will you react if you found out you were just a clone of someone? will this make you less of a citizen or will it make you doubt your existence, knowing that no matter what, you are just a copy.
User avatar #437 to #407 - sanguinesolitude (07/20/2013) [-]
identical twins are effectively clones, not that hard to treat them as normal humans.
User avatar #493 to #437 - jockothecrock (07/20/2013) [-]
identical twins are natural clones. something that happened in nature. plus they are both created at the same time, and are treated both as siblings, or in other words, uniquely equal. do you think you can treat one twin as a copy of the other? do that, and you might get lynched. but clones, however, aren't natural, and are made after you are born. you are the original being, unique in every shape and form. a clone is a replica of your physical uniqueness, a being that was created in a lab, something that looks like you, but is not you. it is a copy of you. not a complete copy, since it has its own personality, but a genetic copy of your completely unique dna. you may treat is like a twin, but how does the clone feel, realizing that its just a copy of you, a completely original and unique being, born in this world by natural means, while it is a unnatural experiment of science, a replica of an original being
User avatar #498 to #493 - sanguinesolitude (07/20/2013) [-]
what does natural mean at this point? I am saying if being genetically identical now is acceptable, then when it became common in the future it wouldn't be hard to adapt to a new kind of person, who is still a real person, just same DNA. Its not like a clone has all your memories and personality or anything. Its just an identical twin that is born much later. We accept test tube babies, and they are "unnatural." It just doesn't seem that big of a jump.

I get it that the clone himself would have a little bit of identity crisis, but cloning isnt that different from regular birth. instead of a sperm attaching to an egg, dna is put into an emptied egg. Basically the same thing. i dont think its as strange or freaky as you seem to think. Sure society would take some time to get used to the idea, but apart from celebrity clones, and assuming you dont make a ton of clones of the same person, who would even know who is a clone and who is "real." (wahtever real means)
User avatar #499 to #498 - jockothecrock (07/20/2013) [-]
read the house of scorpions, a book based on this subject, and you will see what i mean by how people may treat clones, or what they used them for
User avatar #505 to #499 - sanguinesolitude (07/21/2013) [-]
or you could just talk to me about it. I have a ton of books to read and cloning doesnt interest me that much because it doesnt seem that scary or difficult to deal with.
User avatar #506 to #505 - jockothecrock (07/22/2013) [-]
well the book is about a clone of a drug lord. the family of the drug lord treated it like garbage, even the servants of the drug lord treated it like something less than a human. the children stayed away from it, seeing it as a disgusting house pet that his "mother" a servant who is the only one to take care of him and love him, keeps. the only people who are actually nice to him other than his mother is his bodyguard, his piano teacher, and a little girl who he grew up with that always accepted him. when the drug lord finally has a heart attack, the clone is told that he must give his heart to the drug lord, since he is the only thing that has the drug lord's DNA in order to have a successful transplant. i would tell you the rest of the book, but i wouldnt want to spoil it
User avatar #507 to #506 - sanguinesolitude (07/22/2013) [-]
interesting. Well sure if clones can be kept as pets, but it seems much more likely we would just give them full human rights, I mean they are humans. Just seems like we have pretty much dealt with the idea of in vitro fertilization and such. Clones are always going to be younger than you and with enough of a gap it's just like having a child of the same person around.

again I think too many clones of the same person could be an issue, or dictators being replaced by their clones generation after generation, but just having clones around doesnt scare or frighten me. Its just like an identical twin who arrived late to the party.
User avatar #508 to #507 - jockothecrock (07/22/2013) [-]
clones in this book are used as involuntary organ donors. in fact it also shows scientists halting the brain's growth process because they didn't want clone's to gain "human consciousness". the main protagonist, the clone of the drug lord, didn't undergo through this because of the drug lord's request in case he needed a brain transplant. in other countries cloning is illegal because of this and many other inhumane process done during the cloning process.
User avatar #509 to #508 - sanguinesolitude (07/22/2013) [-]
well fair enough, that certainly would be problematic. Sounds interesting

Listen, i am an atheist, but i know what god is, i know what religious people think gods role is.
So in my original comment, I stated my belief, then i said an opinion which included god.
I stated my belief first so people wouldn't think i was a butthurt christian.

Just because I'm a catholic does not mean I buy into all the beliefs... Kinda narrow minded to think that as soon as the holly water touched my head during baptism I was going to grow up believing everything from an outdated, thousands of years old book...

Fathers side are catholic, mothers side isn't, I was always brought up to believe what I think is right...

As a catholic, I do think the opposite.
User avatar #494 to #475 - jockothecrock (07/20/2013) [-]
so you seriously believe that creating copies of gods creations is a good thing?

and that people should ignore boundaries like the ten commandments or holy laws that were set by your own god?

and that its okay for people to play the role of a god by creating and making new life and species, and totally disregard life in the future?

can you see that this wrong on both scientific and religious points?

Cloning can have its advantages, individual organs for someone in need of a liver/heart transplant for example.

10 commandments wise, no, people should not kill or steal ect, but in all honesty just because its in the 10 commandments isn't going to stop someone who isn't sane enough to realise that, even without then, its still ******* wrong!

We got given a brain and a mind by whoever/whatever brought us into creation, I personally feel it would be a waste to not use such a thing to its full potential.

I inherited this god (so to speak). Personally I don't know what I believe is there or is there not a god (mine or another). I just try to do good, be successful and get on with life and enjoy it.

he put the apple in the garden making us pick free will for ourselves, always knowing that we would, but giving us the opportunity to live forever as happy idiots in his little garden... if you believe that sort of drivel.
