UK's first hybrid embryos created

The Catholic Church describes it as "monstrous".

Then it can't be that bad, can it?

HA! No, I think you're correct:

If the Catholic church objects to this new reality and potential for amazing health and life extension benefits, it can't be wrong, unless mis-applied in some fashion.

Very funny comment, Mac.

They just need to put a different "spin" on the experiments. For starters STOP calling them "hybrid embryos." Embryos implies that they're, well, embryonic human-animal hybrids that could develop into...God knows what. They're clumps of cells. Human cells are grown in petri dishes all the time. Get with the program. Scientists by and large are complete dolts when it comes to publicity like this....

The Catholic church isn't especially known for its scientific savvy. Or decency, for that matter, if its absurd position on birth control is any indication.

It will be interesting to see if this bizarre quasi-Medieval regime can survive the 21st century.
