Hey, that was not "Photoshopped Animals", it was a look into the
furure to the year 3000 after man got deeply involved into genetic
engineering. Ponder that. ;)

Hi Pete,

I think genetic engineering will be a given in a few years. That will be followed by mechanical replacements for human organs.

Eventually, the human body will be replaced by mechanical limbs and organs with organic brains . Said brains will connect by wire to others, followed by a wireless connection.

Gene Roddenberry was right on the mark: BORG

I'm thinking that we just scratched the surface on genetic engineering,
so it will take another 100 years to master that science. In the meantime,
mechanical body parts will be the standard practice. Over time, the
mechanical body parts will become old school as genetic engineering
comes to the forefront enabling people to regenerate new body parts
themselves.

Cut off my arm? No problemo! I'll grow a new one. :)

Go to the pet store and order an exotic pet that is a cross between
a dog and a cat. Order it by color, disposition, size, etc..

Then one day all this genetic manipulaton goes wrong and ends
up wiping out the entire human race, except for a select few.
Those select few say... "It's not wise to fool with mother nature!"

Well said Pete. My biggest concern is if this Technology gets into the wrong hands,and it will eventually,if there is a Dollar to be made.
What then?:eek:

Before go crying doom in our lifetime, consider the cost.

People love money, and if they can do something cheaper with spare humans, than with technology, by God they'll do it. :D

JEBW, not in our life time, unless someome here lives another 100 years
from now. Can you imagine being offered the opportunity to clone yourself
and have that spare body in cold storage to be havested for replacement
parts?

That's one scenario, but what I was referring to in my post was geneitic
engineering mastered to the point of being able to regenerate your own
body parts. Imagine having a mechanical heart while your body generates
a brand new heart to replace the one removed. It may be possibile
someday, but I fear the day when they go against nature and begin
producing hybrid beings by combining species that were never intended
to be combined (by nature, God or whatever your beliefs) such as the
creatures in pics of the original post in this thread. This is where things
could go drastically wrong and have a devistating impact on the human
race.
