Chinese Scientists Now Putting Human Genes Into Monkeys

Chinese scientist claims to have created the world’s first GENE-EDITED babies that resist HIV virus in ‘monstrous’ experiment.

For the first time ever, scientists have now used gene-editing techniques to make monkey brains more humanlike.

University of Colorado geneticist James Sikela told the MIT Technology Review: “The use of transgenic monkeys to study human genes linked to brain evolution is a very risky road to take. It is a classic slippery slope issue and one that we can expect to recur as this type of research is pursued.”

Chinese scientists have “gene hacked” a group of monkeys to make them smarter — in an experiment branded “reckless” by experts.

The experiment involved exposing monkeys to human genes that affect the development of our brains.

In a study published in the National Science Review, a team of Chinese scientists revealed how they successfully edited a human gene into rhesus monkeys.

The human gene microcephalin (MCPH1) is expressed during the “fetal stage” of our brain’s development and has been linked to brain size.

Researchers exposed a group of monkey embryos to viruses containing the gene.

This led to the development of monkey brain cells resembling human development.  More

There’s a difference between things that you can do and things you should do. This may fall into the first category, but definitely not the second one.

This is why they are called Godless Communists. They have no souls, no morality, no sense of human decency. They torture these defenseless creatures as if they are nothing, messing around with the “natural order.” This is heinous and it’s dangerous.
