    That is part of the weirdness that I don't think humanity is ready to handle. Would clones be real people with rights, or just utility bodies for medicine/labor/sexual pleasure/etc? Governments or corporations determining personhood on any level seems like a terrible idea to me.

      What sense could it possibly make to clone extinct animals? That completely violates the purpose of natural selection.

      On that subject... you couldn't populate a species with clones unless you had a ton of DNA sources. There needs to be significant genetic variation within a species.

      We do not have the infrastructure to handle dinosaurs. If Jurassic Park taught us anything it's that dinosaurs cannot be controlled. MADNESS I SAY! Jeff Goldblum isn't coming to save us.

      Cloning is badass. But there's no reason to think that clones would be any different than twins... they could potentially have completely different personalities based on life experiences, and such.

        Obviously Jurassic Park 3 taught us that dinosaurs can be contained if you just put them all on an island. The only problem would be pteradactyls, but then you just build a giant bird cage to hold them....wait...nevermind, because people leave the damn gate open so they escape...

        Also, I would totally go to a Jurassic Park. If I was gonna die early, dying by dinosaur would be badass.

          Well... the levels of oxygen in the atmosphere are currently insufficient to sustain a high number of extremely large land animals. So... they would have died eventually... or become much smaller... which is what happened.

          I'm not sure the financial stability is the most important consideration, but yes... very unstable. Granted... Jurassic Park was a complete financial failure as well. Good luck getting investors. Scoff.

              Well if this was trully like Jurassic Park, there would be no need to worry about breeding. The dinosaurs on the island were asexual because of the reptile DNA they used, so they could reproduce no matter what. That's what caused the problem in the first place...

                  Now all we need is a mention of a Sabertooth Tiger and we have officially discussed every animal in the original Megazord.

                      I'd be down with cloning women for sex slaves.

                        actually i probably would be down with cloning sheep for sex slaves too.

                        but scarlett is my first choice

                              I hate Jurrasic Park just because of those two kids. I was rooting for big T to eat them.

                                You don't have to clone women to be able to have them as sex slaves.
