Cloning machines go on sale on the web
Just copying your bottom at office parties is so old...
DiY cloning is with us at last, and you can buy it on the web. Well, sort of. If you look here, you will find that for the bargain price of $9,199 ex shipping you can buy an RMX2010 Clonaid direct fusion, umm, thingummy.
It is, apparently, a device used for embryonic cell fusion, and we get the impression that it is more efficient than the chamber method, which we confess we hadn't heard of either. But if you have a ready supply of ovums and cellular scrapings from the individual of your choice, we deduce that this is all you need to produce your very own duplicate person. Well, apart from a womb, that is. We reckon you probably need one of those too.
Clonaid, you may be aware, is an interesting operation. It was founded by one Raël, also founder of the Raëlian Movement, and although the man himself no longer runs Clonaid he still figures prominently on the front page of the site. This tells us that "life on Earth was created scientifically through DNA and genetic engineering by a human extraterrestrial race whose name, Elohim, is found in the Hebrew Bible and was mistranslated by the word 'God'. The Raelian Movement also claims that Jesus was resurrected through an advanced cloning technique performed by the Elohim."
The man himself now operates out of this fascinating site, where the flying saucer alone is, in our opinion, the best reason for giving in and installing flash we've ever seen. We also liked the award of "Honorary Guide" status to George Michael for his latest video, and there is much more of interest chez Raël. And good new! Soon, presuming the cloning machine works, there will surely be quite a few of him... ®
