Looking over the Drudge Report I came across a link to a "The Sun" article about scientist taking human sperm and implanting a female ape and crazy enough the ape actually is said to have carried the embryo to birth and it actually survived birth and lived on afterward.
My first thought was that this was a recent story but according to the article the scientist involved killed the infant not long after birth due to their concerns about moral and religious implications. My second thought was this explains the elections of Democrats in the not too distant past but then I am kidding on that part.
Actually, I am amazed if this was something that was attempted that long ago and even more surprised that it was in Florida where it was attempted and even more surprised that it hasn't been attempted again and in the not too distant past. I don't doubt though that someone will be trying it and it may have been attempted since then and just not publicized but then knowing scientist this is something that they would not have kept quiet about.
There are areas of Science that mankind should just leave alone but sadly that will not be the case. Good intentions often bring about horrendous things such as their attempt to gain more honey from the honey bee and coming up with "killer" Africanized Bees. Can it be done may be better off asking should it be done? I chose to submit this under Miscellaneous rather than news because we are talking about an event that is no longer news but happened back in the 1920's and I also thought about posting under the Religion board but my better judgment decided here was the most appropriate.
