While it's not possible to clone dinosaurs directly (due to lack of DNA material), the science apparently reached the level when it becomes, theoretically, possible to "reinvent" dinosaurs anew by controlling mutations of chicken embryo DNA. Do you think it's a good idea? Personally, I would totally love to visit a real life Jurassic park. But it's not likely to happen any time soon.

It seems that it's technically possible, too, if not for the legal restrictions. lol

If the new species were (deliberately or accidentally) released into the wild, it could trigger an ecological rebalancing w/ uncertain results. :)

Yes, but they should make them sterile to prevent any accidents.

I think reproduction in the new species would also be an integral part of the research, tho, so at least some of them wouldn't be sterilized. :)

We did. Not building shitty security systems that will let all the dinosaurs free once electricity goes out.

The security systems have to be shitty in the movie, tho, for the obvious reason. :P

Why bother? They will end up eating each other and only the strongest specie will remain and that will be the T-Rex.

Carnivorous species in such a hypothetical park will be kept separately and fed with cattle.

Yes and no. On one hand it'd be awesome to see what the dinosaurs were really like, but on the other hand, messing with nature is never a good thing. Man shouldn't really try to play the role of god in my opinion. I voted for No :P

We've always been messing w/ nature & playing God since the dawn of our civilization, e.g. the selective breeding of various species of pets, the traditional manipulation of the species of crops, etc. :wink:

Did you find a passage in the Bible forbidding to resurrect dinosaurs?

I've never read the bible and would sooner burn it than do so but that's a discussion for another time :P I didn't use the best phrase either but I can't think of one more better suited ^_^'

True but this is on a much larger scale. We're talking about bringing back extinct creatures from millions of years ago.

Yes, the technologies used for "playing God" are much more advanced nowadays than they're then, hence their impact will also be much bigger, but the basic nature/principle & ultimate objective are still very much the same. :)

Never read the book but already want to throw it into bonfire? With an attitude like that, no wonder you are against things which are beyond your understanding - like dinosaurs.

The procedure has limitations. It can only revive the traits the bird originally evolved from. So none of the most popular dinosaurs can be revived.

But with stem cell research one can be creative in creating a triceratops by combining rhino DNA and parrot DNA.

The result might look somewhat like a triceratop but is definitely not one, tho. lol

I stopped trying to read from front to back when I saw Eve get introduced twice. Sloppy editing, if you ask me.

Speaking of which, I'm all for it since it would piss the bible thumpers off.

The Bible in general probably pisses off all those dinos in heaven. :tongue:

I found this on deviantart, sums it up perfectly:

It is sloppy editing, but I rather enjoy the fan-retcon saying the first woman was actually Lilith, and that there's a story in between the two introductions. Lilith is my favorite bible character, even if she's non-canon.

Can't wait for winter break when I can resume my reading. I'm in the middle of Joshua and its actually pretty exciting...

Regarding dinosaurs, I saw this funny video on YouTube. It portrays Lucifer as a little girl, and the fossil record was her skipping around throwing bones as red herrings.

Only if they build on an isolated island in case Newman decides to sabotage the real Jurassic Park, too.

If somebody built a RL Jurassic Park, you couldn't turn off all the security systems by pressing a button on a PC, you wouldn't let only one guy in the whole staff to know the security password, you wouldn't use sheep electric fence instead of concrete walls, dinosaurs wouldn't be able to turn door handles, they wouldn't break through walls hitting them with their heads, and a lot of other "wouldn't". "Jurassic Park" makers put aside almost all realism and common sense to make a good disaster movie.
