I wrote a thesis paper while I was in school (@ 15 yrs. ago) stating that it was only a matter of time before the scientists cloned mammoths. The technologies involved were heading toward each other at that time. Do you know about the Sierra Club and some of the other related groups that are buying up land across the world to create Pleistocene parks to put these creations on? One of them currently owned takes up parts of Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. They want to get rid of all trace of humans and fill it with mammoths,camels,lions, cave bears, whatever THEY think is the closest relation to the last ice age.
Theoretically, We WILL be able to clone anything up to 40,000 years ago. Giant armadillos, Giant Sloths,dodo birds, woolly rhinos, any of the saber-toothed cats, you name it, It could really be done. So, my point of all of this is, with the direction that these radical groups like the Sierra Club are heading, we may all get a chance someday to see these creatures again, for better or worse. What happens when saber-toothed cats decide we make easier prey? Here in Texas, it's a hanging offense to have a pair of fence cutters in you're back pocket(never enforced anymore), would that law get reinstated after some high school seniors decided to pull a trick, cut the fence, and got eaten? On the other hand, placing the park down on the border with Mexico might fix a few things too. Forget just building a fence. Feed the cats, AND stop Illegal Immigration, now that sells!
I don't know anymore, the world's becoming a weird place to live in.
