Clone: (v) to make a duplicate
Some people just like to argue. I’m convinced of that.
You could even tell them you agree with what they’re saying, and they will still comment on how poorly you supported the point.
Thus the argument about cloning.
People are very afraid we’re actually going to attempt to clone human beings. That’s not what bothers me. What troubles me is that we want to clone attractive, intelligent, disease-free human beings.
Will they still be assholes?
You see, that’s the problem. I have met people who are supposed to be very appealing, but after spending ten minutes with them, I was grateful that the eleventh minute arrived so I could leave.
They were just too aware of their positive attributes.
There is something sweet in the human spirit about uncertainty–something appealing about an attractive person wondering if you think they look alright.
Do we really want a clone who is not only structured in perfection, but has a receipt to prove it?
I gain strength through my weaknesses. If people do not know this to be true, they will continue to lie and deceive in order to cover up hidden flubs. Are we going to clone flubbed people so they’ll be more real?
Or is the purpose of cloning an attempt to achieve what God was unable to do–and that is make a perfect Adam and Eve.
