What happened to pure cloning of humans?

I feel a decade plus back there was much more talk about cloning humans. While I will hear from time to time an animal got cloned or something, I never hear anything about progress towards humans.

While I don't see the positives of it and do not condone it, I do find the idea fascinating. What would happen if we did have this ability? Would we utilize it? Probably in a terrible way.

But has science simply decided AI will robotics is easier and more efficient?

Or have we simply said it is morally and ethical wrong and have stopped this scientific path?

Just remember this being a more relevant topic then it is today, and figured we would have made significant progress in this the past 15 years or so.

I honestly thought we would have cloned humans by now.

Perhaps they skipped that step and invested into what the clones were actually supposed to do :) Ai has come along ways, humans used todo that stuff.

You ever see the movie terminator, Arnold >>>> Sly @hitman

It turns out that it’s extremely more complex than they imagined . Better off trying to clone organs and foreskin

What happened with cloning?

It got lost with Dolly the sheep via the Raelians cult if my memory serves me correct

When I try to look at it optimistically, I think that in 100 years’ time all life in Earth will be affected in a negative way by global warming, so cloning will be worthless.

i mean, even for harvesting body parts. Several movies touch on this such as The Island and Never Let Me Go.
I would guess that as the cloning technology advances and the processes are streamlined, the ruling class is increasingly pressuring the media to keep the topic outside the mainstream.

If they cloned Baboosh they would have to clone every AYCE in the universe too.
that put the spanner in the works, i think.
Ima djinn what wood hap pen two awl the climate tocks!! The ozone layer would be completely destroyed with the amount of four molecules of hydrogen that would combine with one molecule of carbon that would be produced :cry: o_O

Never heard of The Island, but I happened to read Never Let Me Go before I got to watch the movie. The book is very powerful because you have no idea what it's about for a long while.

The Island is a more modern and tech version of Never Let Me Go. The idea of being alive to serve your counterpart for when they need it is a tough go. But we will eventually get there whether we want to or not.

Scientists seem to be currently mainly focussed on cloning DNA from extinct animals so as to bring them back to life. Jurassic Park has a lot to answer for!
