A New Resurrection? by Thomas S. Buchanan

A New Resurrection?

“‘This will be the biggest leap for mankind,’ he says. ‘It is the central core of Christianity, the resurrection of Jesus, the promise of eternal life!’”
From an article on human cloning in Wired magazine, January 2001

It is likely that 2001 will go down in history as the year the first human clone was born. Perhaps it will be the biggest leap for mankind. But it will be a giant leap backwards, back to the garden where Adam first ate of the tree of knowledge.

The technology for human cloning is now at the point where, with $50,000 and “a good cell biologist, you could do this with two people in a closet,” according to Wired’s Brian Alexander. Be assured that a number of ego-driven mad scientists are racing to have their names in the history books of the future as the reincarnation of Dr. Frankenstein.
