If someone wanted to farm future clones they would need many things. They would need to also consider the time commitment for the future and weigh the costs for those 16-years of conditioning. A military of a country might decide to do this, as it would make their elite forces almost uncanny in cooperative ability and effectiveness. The sixteen-year investment is of course the real issue, it therefore becomes all about ROI and economics. The economics of cloning and human life, which most Americans have a problem with in discussing, I suppose you may too as I too have to question the dialogue. We must realize that such discussion is necessary even if somewhat unpleasant.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a clone offspring? Well if your answer is no, you are not being truthful with yourself and will have to re-evaluate this answer before further reading here. If you say yes, which makes sense because after self-preservation, procreation is in fact the biggest single driver of the species and thankfully so otherwise you may not be here today if anyone of your ancestors had felt any differently. So we know that we have the technology to clone now and that mankind has an innate desire to reproduce and due to the ego of the human mind “Self” we know that it will therefore eventually come to pass as an acceptable method for reproducing human beings, this along with the test tube scenarios means no more regular births in the future. This is somewhat unfortunate for those of us who like sex, because use of such reproductive organs will not be needed. Women will appreciate the forgoing of the perils of nine months as it has been said in history by ruling women that it is better to die three times in battle than to give birth to one child. Ouch. Perhaps mankind will continue to practice but only reproduce as needed through cloning and test tubes?
You can see the issues involved in the cloning debate, which go much deeper than religion; the real debate has to do with evolutions process of a self-replicating organic machine, human beings, and the future of science and the species. Think about it.
