“Man selects only for his own good:
Nature only for that of the being which she tends.”
Charles Darwin, “The Origin of Species”

Historic Moments in Cloning

“Roslin’s Director at the time Dolly the Sheep was born stated that ‘the genie was out of the bottle.’ It is not easy to see into the future; before the Roslin Institute did the cloning experiment no one knew if it would work of not (this is the art of science) – the minute after ‘Dolly’ was born it became history.” (via ‘Cloning FAQs,’ The Roslin Institute)
