Cloning Hoax Continued?

|

Brigitte Boisselier on CNN's Crossfire promised again that the evidence that Clonaid has actually cloned a baby will soon be forthcoming. She suggested that Clonaid would prove that the new Japanese baby boy is a clone of a the couple's dead baby. How convenient! At least with the two earlier claimed clones, the ones in the Netherlands and in Israel, there are living donors whose DNA could be compared with the alleged clones. In the case of the Japanese boy clone, we are expected to take it on faith that the cells to which the boy's DNA will be compared come from his dead sibling/twin. I may be forgiven in thinking that the chain of custody for the cells allegedly taken from the dead baby is, to say the least, questionable. The hoax continues.

  1. I predict the proof of the clone will be announced when the biological age of the clone will be indistinguishable from the dead baby.

  2. Can somebody explain to me why these people are being given even a whiff of credibility by any halfway legitimate news media source (provide your own ironic comment about CNN here)? Could it be an attention-grabbing story trumps real news every time? Did I just answer me own question? Alright, then. Carry on.
