Funny, but you would probably have already died from illness if it weren't for advances in medical technology. Do you think we just make up new elements and chemicals? Everything we have we reverse engineer from nature.

To clone means to copy.
You can't copy a mammoth with a parakeet. It makes no sense.

You could just eat an elephant. Mammoths were hairy elephants.

I was being sarcastic, but there are things we don't know. We unleashed nuclear power, without knowing the consequences and where has that lead us? You're right to be concerned with unknown bacteria and possible other issues we are totally unaware of. There are things believe it or not that science just doesn't have the answers to.

No ****. If we had the answers we wouldn't need scientists.

Researchers from the Northeast Federal University in Yakutsk found the 10,000-year-old female mammoth buried in ice on the Lyakhovsky Islands off the coast of northeast Russia.
Scientists say they poked the frozen creature with a pick and dark liquid blood flowed out.


As we all know, the earth is only a few thousand years old. Like 6 thousand or something.



So, this is just a test for us, from Satan.


GET BACK YE.
Hey, you can never have too many mammoths...

Lol, early man wasn't even a nasty thought during the Cretaceous. Only in Hollywood. Man was, however, here with the Mammoths during the Pleiststocene. Some, attribute their demise to man. Now, man wants to bring them back to life? What irony......
