    Default Chinese splicing human genes into monkey brains



    I have stated many times on here my opposition to GMO crops. Primarily because, whilst relatively benign now, it will only be a matter of time before somebody uses animal genes. Sadly it looks like the Chinese are way ahead of me and are splicing human genes into monkey brains. So Mott, what do you have to say about that?

    If any group were to embark on a Mission to create 'super-humans', I would put my money on the Chinese.

    Bowel Woman could use a few human genes to be spliced into her simian brain.

    Horseshit. You openly support removing the UK from European GMO oversight and accepting whatever shit Trump dictates by way of trade.

    You're a hypocrite , maggot- as if you didn't wallow in that designation.
    Prosemitism is racist.

    Meh...Farmers have been doing this via selective breeding for a very long time. How else would you explain the French or Texans?

    This could be a way for liberals to raise their IQ and move politically to the right.


    Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss, whereas they stand to receive infinite gains and avoid infinite losses.

    They were able to advance their intelligence, buy refusing to mate with Ohioan sheep fuckers.

    Evidently Jack is groaning over the fact that he wasn't included in the study and thereby having his "genes" to be improved.

    China is a rogue nation in lots of various fields from military to business and now animal research.
    I doubt there are any real limitations on any gene splicing by the Chinese

    It all sounds very sinister to me, we appear to be entering a truly scary dystopian world.

    what was the purpose of the research? to study monkey brain development? that isn't crucial.
    It's a loose cannon- completely unregulated in China ( maybe other countries?)

    They don't seem to be held back by any ...
    It's sheer clinical and methodical research.
    Some Chinese guy said that whoever controls the future technology, will control the World.

    "Eugenics (/juːˈdʒɛnɪks/; from Greek εὐγενής eugenes 'well-born' from εὖ eu, 'good, well' and γένος genos, 'race, stock, kin')[2][3] is a set of beliefs and practices that aim to improve the genetic quality of a human population by excluding (through a variety of morally criticized means) certain genetic groups judged to be inferior, and promoting other genetic groups judged to be superior.[4][5] The definition of eugenics has been a matter of debate since the term was coined by Francis Galton in 1883. The concept predates the term; Plato suggested applying the principles of selective breeding to humans around 400 BCE."
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugenics

    Makes sense to me.
