At the places that people believe that evolution is happening it is often times just an adaptation of an animal to fit its environment better. These things are occurrences that have been observed by people and have been recorded, but evolution is a very large change in an animal over millions of years. No one has observed evolution because what is thought to be evolution is just an adaptation to live better in an animal’s surroundings. The only way for something to be a fact is for it to be observed and then tested to make sure it can be repeated multiple times. Scientists cannot recreate evolution, therefore, it can only be a theory and can only be trusted if a person has faith that it is true.
Ban of Animals in Scientific Experimentation Animal experimentation has been manipulated by the media to where many people do not understand the cruelness of the experiments undertaken in labs. Using these animals increases the risk of the species becoming extinct sooner rather than later. New research opportunities have provided genetically modified animals, which are able to more accurately model aspects of diseases, now accounting for almost half of all research animals. Many people agree that there is mistreatment withheld during experimentation and scientists need to treat animals in the best way possible. Animals have the right to not be harmed, even though the Animal Welfare Act does not provide them with even the smallest protection.
Is it because technology is not advanced enough yet? Or is it just because human cloning might be too dangerous? Many scientists are trying to clone humans but is it ever justified? There are a whole lot of debates on this topic, and I am strongly against it. Human cloning is ethically wrong; there are many risks involved, which will lead to detrimental effects on human society.
However, in human beings, the percentage may lower and may interfere with the natural biological order of life. Arguments for and against cloning of humans do not make a convincing case since reasons used to back the claims are based on various assumptions and ethical issues. The proponents of cloning argue that the technology can help in solving the problem of infertility; help in cloning dead loved ones, and solving the problem of genetic diseases. Cloning can allow a person to have a genetically copy of oneself with all positive traits. However, such claims have not been proved since no human clone has been produced so far (Melo‐Martín 246).
(his/her name will be arthur)¨ It would be as if that person got a new pet, not like the old one came back. Although it has the same muscles, bones and color. And if it was a trained animal, then you’d have to retrain the new one. Arthur says, ¨Many people would argue that cloning animals for the sole purpose of testing or monetary gain would be a gross exploitation of innocent creatures.¨ Even though , cloned animals are exact copies of an already living one, they
Analysis A sheep named Dolly, the first animal cloned from a so called somatic body cell, came into the world as an innocent lamb. However, soon after the announcement of her birth in 1997 she caused panic all over the world. People started wondering; if the cloning of sheep is possible, will scientists soon start cloning humans? And if they did, would this be wrong, stupid, and dangerous for humanity? Most people despised the cloning of Dolly, as she was the first dangerous step towards human cloning, which is something a lot people still agree should never be done.
These people strongly believe that animals also carry rights like humans and it’s against the rights to change their DNA and genetically modify it for human use. Lastly, the people also strongly disagree with the fact that hundreds of these animals are used for clinical trial research and transgenic animals are not unlike. 2. They can be unsafe for human consumption: - The safety for the products produced by transgenic animal is no guarantee. This is true because not all experiments on transgenic animals are effective.
When the idea of cloning arises, society tends to ask itself is it right or wrong. Indeed, there are many advantages towards cloning, however, we must know where to the draw line so we don’t go too far. “In 1996, Dolly the sheep became the first mammal cloned” by the Roslin Institute, which astonished so many people. Since Roslin Institute, lead by Dr.Ian Wilmut, successfully cloned Dolly the sheep, people wonder what their going to clone next. This leads to the question: Is cloning morally and ethically right, or is it the act of playing forces that we don’t fully fathom?
If the government allocates more funding to medical genetic engineering projects, it can change the lives of countless people. However, many would discourage the government from funding these projects, citing concerns about the creation of designer babies, with genetic enhancements such as heightened intelligence or muscularity, that only the rich can afford. However, it is unlikely that we will be seeing designer babies anytime soon because, as put by USAtoday.com, “it will be enormously difficult to create ‘designer babies.’ The traits we all care about, such as intelligence, physical ability, height and skin color, are all polygenic (meaning they have more than one gene). It will never be possible to insert a single gene into an embryo and expect the child to grow up with an IQ of 150. Even a simple trait like eye color is controlled by more than one gene.” The truth is, there are so many factors affecting these traits that we won’t be able to increase a child’s intelligence without fundamentally changing who he or she is.
or Star Trek, while theologians wonder if we are alone, or if we could learn more about God from a new species. If we did find a sentient being the scientific contributions would be limitless. The amount of new information, whether their civilization is new or advanced, would be priceless. The technological implications are staggering. We may find a cure for cancer,
