I have been arguing at length that modern science is too complex that we have to worry that single weired professors could create inpredicatable “Frankensteins”. But read today’s newspapers: Harvard Professor, geneticist Church is serious about having an “adventurous woman” give birth to a Neanderthaler. He has “understanding” for ethical issues involved, but as always, it will pay off for humanity! And after all, the Neanderthaler may well be more intelligent than the casual homo sapiens.
See for a full interview with Professor Church based at Harvard in the recent interview with “Der Spiegel”-english version
