Animal-Human Hybrids Spark Controversy. [Dave at Garfield Ridge]

From a National Geographic story, linked off of Drudge:

Scientists have begun blurring the line between human and animal by producing chimeras—a hybrid creature that's part human, part animal. . .

But creating human-animal chimeras—named after a monster in Greek mythology that had a lion's head, goat's body, and serpent's tail—has raised troubling questions: What new subhuman combination should be produced and for what purpose? At what point would it be considered human? And what rights, if any, should it have?

I'm no ethicist, so I can't answer the questions raised by this research.

However, I will say that anything science can do to bring us closer to realizing the Manimal ideal, I'm all for it.

He's a man. He's a beast. He's a sexual dynamo.

-- Dave at Garfield Ridge
