    They've been looking for dino DNA for decades. I'm glad they've finally found some viable samples. Hopefully, in another 10-15 years, I'll be able to see my first, living dinosaur.

    I'm ready. Bring it on!!!!

    When Jack Horner dug up the T-Rex, Sue, they found some possibly-viable DNA in her tibia. At the time, it was a breakthrough in paleontology as no one had found any in a fossil that old.

    They need to be careful. Can you imagine the devastation if they were able to combine the DNA of a Velociraptor and a Jack Russell Terrier?

    Sometime I look at Jimmy and think they already have!

    It would be called Indominus Jack.

    Woolly mammoth on the verge of resurrection, scientists say
    Scientist leading ‘de-extinction’ effort says Harvard team just two years away from creating a hybrid embryo, in which mammoth traits would be programmed into an Asian elephant

    Thumbs up

    I would be totally thrilled to see a herd of T-Rexes rampaging through the streets of Chicago.

    Forget Mammoths, We Could Bring Dinosaurs And Neanderthals Back To Life
    The Neanderthals went extinct tens of thousands of years ago, so cloning one from recovered DNA would be impressive enough of a feat — but what about something from 65 million years ago? Dr. Kaku addresses this, admitting that cloning a dinosaur won’t be as easy as cloning a Neanderthal or a mammoth (which wouldn’t very “easy” to begin with) — but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.

    Dr. Kaku notes that proteins found within the soft tissues of recovered dinosaur femurs resemble those of chickens, frogs, and reptiles — confirm the theory of their relation. He posits that through the use of a supercomputer, a genetic sequence could be produced, which would create theoretical potential for cloning through epigenetics.

    Resurrecting Neanderthals would be redundant. Just travel through any large city's urban blighted areas and there are plenty of Neanderthals roaming the streets. Or go to any ME country and you'll find them roaming free in their natural habitats. We don't need any more of them.

    I do not like when humans want to play God. They died for a reason..........
    I am like water. I follow the path of least resistance
    but you cannot compress me.

    The most precious thing a man can give to another is time,
    as of it, we have so little.

    It wasn't their fault for going extinct. More like bad luck (it's happened many times in the past, and can happen again).

    Those pesky asteroids keep showing up from time to time and messing things up all around....

    A Mammoth Task: How Do We Decide Which Species to Resurrect?

    I suspect Japan will be first at this stuff and will roll out a few mammoths, they're into all sorts of crazyness.
