Reason 1: We r just humans. Only GOD is perfect and no one else. Only HE creates the living things. Along with that humans, in their meanest sense, try to challenge GOD by doing this, which is utter foolishness to me.
Reason 2: even if there have been successful attempts, still the success rate is very very low. The sheep named "Dolly" was born after 276 failed attempts!! (i read that in an encyclopedia earlier). As i said earlier, we r just humans. We shouldn't intervene in the nature's cycle that is constantly repeated since life started on this planet. It is evident that whenever man has tried to interrupt nature either by cutting the trees or excessive animal killing, the consequences r always bad. If we still haven't learnt from the past bitter experiences and still try to insist, then it will be totally our fault.
I know people who defend cloning say that its a new way to the save the endangered animal species. Well a very valid argument, but can't we try to protect animals and provide them the natural habitat and let nature work itself. Why interfere as the result may turn aganist u??
And imagine wht will happen if the cloned humans are used in wars??? The worst thing ever !!!!
Creating humans to kill God created humans... disgusting !!!!!!!
One more thing people say in favour of cloning i.e. the natural cloning in some species such as the fire ants. As the reproduction there is asexual. Well i say that again, let the nature do its work..Nature itself is responsible and knows to handle all the fuss we humans create.
Moreover the worse of all would be the availability of cloning to public... a tremendous disaster!!! Along with the points my friends mentioned above, people will use this to produce males only. As happened in China when "One child law" was passed, almost every couple went for the "segregated sperm" technology to have a male baby!! Again an interference in the law of nature!! Totally disgusting!!!
I dont see a reason why cloning has to take place! Are we trying to create a superior kind of human race? Does that mean out human race lacks something?
The world's population is huge enough. Its not like we are having some population problems that we have to resort to cloning to keep the human race living.
Cloning is going against the basic principals of nature. Humans were and are created by God, or by forces superior to us. Cloning is defying the existance of them and taking things in our own hands. Why should we challenge the way things have been going on for soo many years.
Moreover, cloning is not error free. Can u imagine, in the process of creating a superior human, we end up creating a monster. Moreover, look at the resources that have to be channeled into cloning and the scientific processes. I mean these could be channeled elsewhere, like fighting poverty, finding a cure for aids. They could be used to deal with the problems at hand and not to create problems for ourselves!
