Neanderthal to be born to surrogate mother?
UnexplainedMysteries.com ^ | Saturday, 19 January, 2013

There have been indications that a cloning experiment to create a live Neanderthal may be on the cards.

While the idea of using DNA from frozen mammoth remains to clone a live specimen is nothing new, the concept that we could do something similar to bring back extinct species of human such as Neanderthals may prove quite a shock to most people. Despite the technical and ethical difficulties inherent in such an endeavor, there are signs that some scientists may be considering research leading up to such an achievement and that they may need a surrogate human mother to deliver the child.

Recently Harvard Medical School geneticist George Church was quoted as saying that eventually, an "adventurous female human" would be required to act as a surrogate mother in the birth of the first Neanderthal in 30,000 years. It's a topic that Church has talked about before, in 2009 he hinted at the possibility of cloning a "near-Neanderthal" when the Neanderthal genome was first reported.

Why does one need to clone a neanderthal when there is one that was politically cloned today as president?

What a great idea! Bring a man whose time has come and gone into existence and treat him like a lab rat and a side show exhibit. What could be ethically wrong with that? /s

John McCain is ten times the man Obama is. And I don’t think it’s so cool to tease a man for injuries sustained as a POW.

Who did that? If anyone criticized McCain because of his military career, I will go after them. I can't stand, however, most of his political ideology. He was a poor candidate, and is not a Conservative. Like Bob Dole, McCain was a war hero, but like Dole, McCain was equally weak as a Presidential candidate.

My point was, we are devolving, not evolving, and RINOs are part of that devolution, as is the Marxist in Chief.

How do you know that? Perhaps the reason why the Neanderthals were exterminated was because they were NOT as ruthless a bunch of killers as the "out of Africa" humans.
