    That notion is really quite disturbing.

    This is on TV and radio... I don't understand why this is causing such a stir-up. Hardly anything new...

    picture of mouse human hybrid I bet most of you have seen this way back... :rolli:

    It's best to call it chimera rather than hybrid. You would think a hybrid is functional... this embryo is sure not.

    Very, very interesting idea. I'd love to see the little bird hybrid go up. But the law and government, coupled with religion will always be obstacles in the field of science.

    @nightning: but if that was so old, this is the future. We could actually observe a possible hybrid growing.

    So, one step closer to Kramer's fear that there will be a slave class of Pigmen.

    With new discoveries in science, how we will use and treat them will also pose a question. Would it be right to use hybrids as slaves, because they are part human? Would they be ab experiments, or would people fight for their rights? I'm pretty sure the animal/instinctive part of their brains would be higher than the logical part.

    No.

    This person will.

    I'm pretty sure the animal/instinctive part of their brains would be higher than the logical part.

    If they are even part human, this point is not relevant in my opinion.

    So the bill to allow research in this area passed the first stage in the UK parliament :
