<br>.. Well it all depends on your interpretation of improve surely?
Hitler reckoned that to have blues eyes and blonde hair was better than not having them and people who were genetically cursed with being a Slav or a Jewish type werent really worth the space they were occupying while they were walking around and wasting the space that the blonde haired and blue eyed ones could be breeding in.
Genetic Engineering works on the premise of something being better than something else and cant be achieved by selective breeding. If it can’t be achieved by selective breeding, then dont do it .. it’ll all end in tears.
cloning isn’t really genetic engineering though is it? Isn’t it just giving you more chances of breeding true the traits that you are looking for. You aren’t actually doing anything to actively select for them. It’s not like you are finding the gene for running fast and splicing it into another animals DNA that can jump well.
I’m with Rob on this one, the biggest risk is finding a race with 12 Kauto stars in it.
