Scientists almost every part of the world have done a deep, non-stop research on how to alter plants, animals and even mankind to certain degree based on what their want and what they thought we “NEED”. At first, we might think that it’s okay if we do the ‘traditional method’ which is by selective breeding, but when they tried to change their subject’s true nature to the extent of altering the DNA or the genes, the real debate about ethics and religious means come slipping in.
What I’ve read, I’m not sure if it’s true or not.. this rat is not a result of genetic engineering but it occurred when this “growing cartilage cells’ was implanted on the back of this mouse..
Well, maybe they can attach some of this cells to real human especially to soldiers who lost their ears during the war… I don’t know about you guys, but to me it’s really creepy.. the mice is real though, the non-genetical-egineered part is the one I’m not sure about..
“can they hear on those ears?? I don’t wanna know!!”
So moving on to my actual topic, the South Korean scientist recently has just created a cloned cat, but not just the fact that the cat is cloned, but it is also GLOWING!! yeah, you heard me, they are
Yeah, I thought the only glowing fish in this world is the one from Nemo.. LOL 😛
…and recently, the Uruguay scientist have successfully created a glowing sheep..
Okay, if you answered number three, your grandmother need to be tested…..
How did they make these fluorescent animals?? By modifying a gene from a jellyfish which allowed them to create a Green-fluorescent-protein (GFP) which glows when they hit Ultra-Violet light.. then they transferred the gene into the animals donor embryo.Then, that’s the result!! Voila!!.. yeah, you won’t get them glowing just by turning off the light, you have to get them passed through UV light.. ah! Spoiler alert!!
So?? what do you guys think about this “Glowing animals”?? Why are they are made?? Because, our scientist believe that these animals, for instance the glowing cat,
“Cats that can glow in the dark from a new genetic engineering technique are helping scientists study molecules that could stop AIDS”
This is because cat have this disease, which I also heard it for the first time after my uncle Google told me, called Feline-immunodeficiency-Virus (FIV) a close relative of the HIV, except, it only affects felines; cats, tigers, lion, etc.
“As long as this doesn’t hurt or affect these animals it’s OK??” What do you guys think?? Should animals be treated in such way?? The animals, didn’t change any behaviour or any physical changes, it’s just that they glows.. but in any other ways, they are the same…
THE BIGGEST QUESTION IN ALL GENETICS ALTERATION IS…
“ARE WE PLAYING GOD??”
In Islam, the Satan disclosed some of his plots to confound man and said;
“Verily of Thy servants I shall most certainly take my due share, and shall lead them astray and fill them with vain desires. And I shall command them so that they cut off the ears of cattle (in idolatrous sacrifice), and I shall command them and they will CHANGE GOD’s CREATION.” (Qur’an 4:119)
