Scientists successfully create human-bear-pig chimera (manbearpig)

Image by Patricia Piccinini- http://www.patriciapiccinini.net/wearefamily/index.php?sec=yf&pg=01 While on kratom, scientists at Linden Labs in San Francisco, California have successfully created a human-bear-pig chimera. Somatic cells from human and bear tissue were first transfected with a bacterial chromosome containing the Nanog gene and a GFP-IRES-puromycin resistance gene cassette. After a puromyocin screen was performed, the remaining cells were treated with a retroviral induction of Oct3/4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-myc, thus creating induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS). Induced pluripotent stem cells were used because of the ethical concern surrounding embryonic stem cells. The cells were then injected into pig blastocysts and introduced into the uteri of pseudo-pregnant pigs. The discovery was published today in the advance online edition of Nature Gold.

“This is quite an accomplishment for which I have great confidence will lead to continued advances in human-animal chimera production,” says Dr. Eli Vance, chief science officer of Linden Labs. “We soon hope to commercialize this technology and realize our continued vision by which any human may realize a physical chimera lifestyle.”

Al Gore could not be reached for comment.

    This is disgusting. A bear that can never be domesticated, a pig, and a human. What are you people thinking? You are not GOD and you need to beg him and kiss his feet for forgiveness. It is supposed to be against the law to have sex with animals, and here you all are making these poor creatures and wasting money that you all could use to make cures for cancer and other diseases. Millions of people are dying each year because you all want to play with GOD. I see why GOD is dissappointed in us. But then again we should expect this from scientist because they think we came from monkeys. And if it is fake then give them time they will think of a way to do it now that it has been brought to their attention.

  15. Derek said,
    April 16, 2010 @ 2:01 pm

    Tricia, this is so clearly an April Fool’s joke that I seriously have to question your intelligence for believing it so readily. I suggest you watch an episode of South Park and lighten the hell up…

    I do agree that we didn’t come from monkeys, because WE ARE MONKEYS! And there is no God. Please grow up and try to act like an adult with a functioning, reasoning mind.

    Science isn’t evil, in fact without it you wouldn’t have even been able to type your rambling, incoherent post which amused us all so much. Thank you science, thank you.

    This was an April Fools joke inspired by an episode of the TV show South Park. It seems the religious nuts who commented on this saying “this is wrong, we shouldn’t play god”, didn’t realize that this was a joke. Just goes to show you how stupid they are.

    As to those religious cult people, you can hardly call sane people “monsters”, the amount of people/animals science killed (and regrettable tortures I don’t support, but you wouldn’t have your medication without) could never compare to the billions you god fearing hipocrits have murdered and tortured for the growth of your own egos, all in the name of “GOD”, so shut the fuck up and get the fuck out.

    That aside, if you think this is serious, read the first line “While on Kratom”… lol.

    Cute that you would consider yourselves “grown up” becase of your lack of religion. Being open minded does in fact mean being open to more than your own beliefs… Including the idea of a God. Grown ups treat each other with respect whether or not they agree with each others personal beliefs. How adult of you to attack someone that personally simply because they have a hope in something you consider ridiculous

  20. Derek said,
    April 27, 2010 @ 3:10 pm

    Annie,

    Being open minded does not mean one should automatically give credence to beliefs which have no basis in reality. If I confessed my undying belief in a mystical flying potato which controlled all of our fates, you would rightly think me insane.

    If I went on to loudly condemn others around me who didn’t agree with the Mystic Potato and his holy teachings, you would dismiss me completely as a kook.

    I respect people’s right to believe in whatever nonsense they wish. I do not, however, have to respect their actual beliefs. Especially when those beliefs are so often used to stifle free thought and scientific inquiry.

    Being open minded is indeed a wonderful thing, but one should be careful that they aren’t so open minded that they allow their brain to fall out of the back of their head.

    We become worried when our children continue to hold on to their imaginary friends after a certain age, yet many of us claim to have a personal relationship with a being for which we have exactly the same amount of proof.

    Imaginary friends are cute when you are 3, much less so when you are 33. Annie, grown ups shouldn’t have imaginary friends, nor should they validate the irrational beliefs of those who do.

  21. Chris said,
    April 27, 2010 @ 4:59 pm

    Absolutely hilarious. I love you. Thanks for your much needed input to lighten my spirits after reading the ridiculousness that preceded it.

  22. Annie said,
    April 27, 2010 @ 6:15 pm

    “goes to show you how stupid they are”
    “act like an adult with a functioning, reasoning mind”
    that definitely sounds like someone who ha a lack o respect for other people. Who cares if you don’t agree.
    It’s people that make statements like those that make atheists everywhere look bad. No one said that science I evil. Most Christians greatly support scientific research. All that I am asking is that you learn to handle people with a little more dignity. You will always find people who you disagree with. So why not show others that your own opinion is worth listening to – that kind of attack turns people off to anything you have to say

  23. Brian said,
    April 27, 2010 @ 6:26 pm

    Annie,

    “Grown ups treat each other with respect whether or not they agree with each others personal beliefs.”

    This is patently untrue, and it just shows how sheltered and ignorant you are. I recommend that you acquaint yourself with current events, and then re-evaluate your statement.

    Children do not wage war. Children do not organize genocide. Children do not enslave each other. These acts are all perpetrated by “grown ups.”

    People can believe whatever they want for all I care, but I will challenge them if they attempt to explain empirical phenomena with their unjustifiable view points. If they believe in something that has no foundation in reality, and they don’t impose their belief upon others, then it is simply their problem. However, in most organized belief systems, a foundational directive is proselytizing.

    When religious adherents begin to impose their “correct” answer about the origin of the universe, the meaning of life, the origin of life, and of the metaphysical being responsible for it all upon others we have witch hunts, religious war (quite a lot of it), and martyrdom (also know as terrorism in the US).

    Finally, belief is not a race, it is not an ethnicity, nor is a culture (although culture can be attached). Belief is simply an idea. The idea the god created the earth a few thousand years ago is such an idea. The idea that god created animals so that man may have dominion over them is another such idea, and so is the idea that adulterous women should be stoned to death.

    It is imperative to challenge such ideas, for not only do we know them to be false, but we know them to have consequences- consequences in reality -the same reality that you are so far separated from.

  24. Derek said,
    April 27, 2010 @ 7:19 pm

    Well first of all, I didn’t write the first quote, that was the other Derek who posted here (It seems we Derek’s are quite a godless lot).

    I do however fully stand by what I actually wrote in asking that Tricia try using her mind instead of relying on the inane ramblings of a bunch of backwards savages who were still struggling to claw their way out of the dark ages.

    If I may quote Tricia,(In reference to ManBearPig)”…We should expect this from scientist(s) because they think we came from monkeys.”

    You see from Tricia’s point of view, a lack of belief in her invisible, all-powerful god makes you by definition an uncaring, immoral person. So therefore in her mind, scientists in particular are (and science in general is) evil. I responded to that belief.

    As far as respect goes, respect must be earned to have any meaning. If you give the same level of respect to everyone regardless of their actions, beliefs, and statements, your respect is of absolutely no value. In posting a bunch of irrational nonsense, Tricia did nothing to earn my respect, quite the opposite in fact. I responded with the tone I felt she deserved. A tone I might add, she set herself.

    You however, have been much more reasonable in tone and I have responded in kind. Yes, I have attacked your beliefs (and probably deeply-held beliefs at that) but without overtly attacking you as a person.

    The trouble with religion is that it is quite difficult to attack one’s religious belief without coming after the believer themselves. Often their beliefs have become so deeply integrated that the person and the religion are inseparable. To attack one is, by default, to attack the other.

    You keep asking for a more civil tone, but at what cost? I simply can’t think of a nice way to call someone’s religious beliefs nonsense and I am certainly not going to censor myself to save someone’s feelings when the stakes are so high. There can be no compromise between logic and mysticism, between reason and irrationality, between life and death.

    I ultimately care very little as to how I make atheists look. I make no claim to speak for all atheists, agnostics, white people, guys named Derek, or any other group of people for that matter. As I have said many times, I stand on my own, even if that means I must stand alone.

    P.S. Thank you Chris. I love you too, I guess. :P

    *sigh* It’s people like you who make us, Christians, look like morons. Are you really that infuriated with this? Obviously, a joke… Man will always try to play God. And anyway, I can’t see anything useful about creating a Chimera, if only to amuse people, which sounds sick. We as Christians need to save other people, not condemn them for their actions… Sure, we must point out their sins, but never force them to change, never pass judgment on them, because that is not what we were called to do. For what are we? Just the same as everyone else, sinners.

    I mean of course, its great to teach caring and compassion and whatnot.. It is another to actually practice those teachings. It seems that most religious fanatics act quite the opposite to those who fail to believe exactly as they do.

    As for the article itself, I have seen a couple guys at the beach who make me think this has already happened. We must ALL pray that manbearpig is captured and put to death soon.. For he is an abomination against our zombie lord. ^_^

    Randomlime, Attila was quoting Al Gore, it’s his maths you should criticise, if anyone’s. Watch the episode of South Park, and all shall be made clear.

    Derek, your points are very well substantiated, nice to see some intelligence among a tirade of idiocy (and I speak as someone who believes in the existence of a higher power, but not on behalf of everyone of this nature). Brian as well.

    Anyway, the above paragraph was really unnecessary, since, although those guys deserved their praise, they should never have had to make those comments! In the spirit of South Park, and this April fool’s gag: “haha”. There – out of this whole post, 4 letters “haha” actually pertain to the true nature of this article.

You think they would really just walk by that thing and pay it no attention? I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be out in public on that table too. It would be confined in a lab being monitored. Not out in the open. Especially if it really was nursing babies

    You all make me smile..

    The way people can just attack total strangers over an April Fools joke, going so far as to insult their very beliefs.

    It doesn’t really matter, so what if someone fell for it, does it matter? I can promise you, statistically speaking, that someone insulting the ‘gullible’ crowd has – at some time in their life – fallen for an equally clear prank. It happens, people can be tricked, how kind of you to point it out to them in such a friendly way.

    I suppose, on some level, it makes people feel better to insult others? It’s always sort of refreshing to feel superior to other people.. it’s why winners enjoy winning, I think it’s an addictive feeling. By that same coin, being smarter than other people would then, certainly, be quite fun too.. right?

    In the end.. a lot of issues could easily be solved if rather than insult people, even when doing it kindly, we could simply discuss things.. talk. To say that it’s difficult to talk without insulting them isn’t a defense.. it simply shows the eagerness to offend that is naturally there. It’s hard to explain.. I think, probably, someone will misunderstand what I am trying to say. Granted, I’m not wording it real well..

    Suffice to say, the internet is a fun place to study peoples reactions to things; as well as other people. I’ll end with a time tested phrase, continually laughed at and shunned, but I think could really do us all some good if we realized the answer to it.. really isn’t that hard..

    Can’t we all just get along?

    There is no way that picture is real and even if it was , it wouldn’t matter. This is the one thing us humans will never be able to do. You can’t mix human DNA with animal DNA. The chimera would just be in constant pain and would actually die very quickly. Which would make it a compelete failure. This is how fate has made it. And to all you people who believe that science is the answer to everything think about this….. everything those christians believe in, well just might be true. Everyday science tries to prove that all the events in the bible are fake, yet each time they try to prove that, all they prove is that it really did happy like the bible said it did. So just think on that….. Food for thought

    I honestly cant imagine what the poor creature is thinking about the way it looks. Humans shouldn’t interfere with the delicate nature of life. This is unnatural and wrong. And besides, even if you think that its not human, then your WRONG because this creature has human genes, a brain, and feelings and if you possibly think this is right you need to see a doctor or something because this is a terrible thing to do.

Seeing the ridiculousness of the post’s between atheist who think its fake, and god fearing bible thumping Christians is amazing! Both sides seem to be genuinely offended and insulted by the others core value and beliefs. Both should calm down, shut up and realize it does not matter, even if it did is it something to get upset about it in the context of an April’s fool’s joke? Ounce again I need to thank all of you for letting me laugh so hard at your comments. Derek wins for the most interesting but cocky, and Tricia wins for craziest yet enjoyably funny. Thank you for all the laughs!

    P.S. A special thanks to south park and Al Gore for making the original joke possible!

    Okay people, calm down it’s fake. And really guys? “Play God”? No one is playing ‘God’. I for one believe in God and Jesus but I don’t worship them. I’m a Wiccan/Pagan and worship nature (far different from Satanist, might I inform anyone now thinking I am a crazed black magic lunatic. No offence to any Satanist.) and guess what? Half of my dads side thinks I’m going to “Hell” because I don’t worship them. Tony or whoever is right, overly Christian (Holy Rollers) have killed many people. Many of which were from my religion because of their ignorance to realize we are for nature, not “Satan”.
    But a lot of you Atheist/Agnostics must understand, these are either people in crazed religious cults or were just brought up extremely religious. You can’t peg every Christian to be like that. Most of them are just non practicing Catholics. Every religion has it’s bad followers. Like Atheist who feel the need to troll on religious people (trust me that’s not pointed to anyone on here. I more agree with the Atheists’ here. But I also have this annoying friend like that who gets on my last nerves.). Then there are the bad Pagans/Wiccans that think “Black Magic” is okay (for newbs, it’s not. And yes, a Oujia Board counts as bad). Some Jewish pick on Christians for their faith in Jesus. And Christians, I’m sorry to say about the extremeist(?), will pick on every religion. Every religion has their good and their bad people. The bad people just tend to make themselves more known.

    after reading all your comments (the battle against the religious and non-religious) i can now understand why wars errupt across the world i know, i know… you have all got valid points but no one knows how the world began cause NO BODY WAS THERE therefor you are all entitled to your beliefs because both arguments have the same ammount of proof
    ‘the charles darwen evolution theory’- there where fossils and there is dna proof however it is believed that god put fossils in the earth to test peoples faith
    christians- the bible plus there are records that a man called jesus lived however there were so many others that claimed to be the son of god that it may have just been luck that people decided to believe this one or he may have been the real son of god no one knows
    the bottom line is until someone travels through time and watches the creation of earth and its creatures then no body has the right to slag off anyone elses beliefs ……. okay?
    so take it as it was intended (A JOKE) and just calm down
    by the way i have seen the episode of southpark its HILLARIUS lmao and has anyone noticed that even thought the mother and the two feeding babies are really ugly the other baby is a teenie tiny bit cute (in a weird way…. dont judge me) lmao :)

    Everybody believes in something different. Nobody knows the complete truth. I for one think that its physically impossible to make a universe from gases that came from nowhere and somehow made the universe. Comic book writers have more imagination. God does exist. I may be thirteen and have a good life but i will always believe. People who dont either had a bad life or struggled with the idea that one being created everything we know. But just because you dont understand the idea, doesnt mean its true. Some parts in the Bible maybe cliche, but that doesnt change the meaning. It started those cliches anyway.

    I am a christian who believes and supports science. I am not like most who point at something and say, “Cause God made it that way.” I still believe he did but i still believe the scientific explanation too.

    Everything happens for a reason. Youre in control your destiny.

    Second of all, this idea was stolen off a world famous production of the show: South Park.

    Thirdly, the explanation of the creation actually makes a reference to the show South Park saying that Al Gore could not be contacted in the making of this FAKE creature.

    And another point….

    IT’S A SCULPTURE!!
    Made by Patricia Piccinini and was posted as an April Fool’s joke, clearly as it was posted on the first op April.

    All those of you that believed this need to learn to read more because the evidence is blatenly in the text.

    GOSH.

    The artist undoubtedly created this to elicit/provoke moral awareness. It most certainly was not intended as the “butt” of some April Fool’s Day joke. Surely, it was to symbolize moral tolerance to human DNA experimentation.

    Seriously, there are people that walk on this earth every day as living “chimeras” with pig or cow mitral valves operating their human hearts – and most find this acceptable. (I daresay that NO ONE would deny a child the chance of life just because a human transplant was not available.) – However, allowing a “humanoid-beast” (ie., the sculpture) to not only survive, but procreate would be unconscionable (shocking) to most people’s belief systems – atheist, Christian, Jewish, Wiccan, etc.

    Afterall, how much are we willing to tolerate?

    Sure, hybrid-parts are okay, but hybrid-humans?

    That’s a little outside most people’s comfort zone. Furthermore, I do believe that this artwork is simply and poignantly illustrating that one little question that no one is asking:

    WHEN will scientists stop worrying about whether they can (create hybrid DNA) and start worrying about whether they should?

    In conclusion, and almost as an afterthought, I do have to say – am I the only one that thinks this sculpture looks more like a “human-cape buffalo” than a “human-pig”? Sorry, Patricia Piccinini, it looks more bovine than porcine.

    PS I’m a Christian, but don’t judge me and I won’t judge you. After all, if you are reading this, then you must be human. We are ALL humans with our own belief systems. At least, we are all human – for now.

    A chimera is a mix between a human and animal or animal and animal, I am not saying that it is wrong to make a chimera what I am saying is that this is the price of the scientific age. This is the essance of science, experimentantion, animal testing, trial and error, all experiments come with a price. The only quesstion to ask ourselves is if we went to far, if we crossed the line, and if so where do we draw the line. I may not be very experienced in sciencetific experiments but I do know this, the most dangerous thing about the human kind is that we crave more and more. If we achieve this, we aim even higher until we achieve the higher, we don’t stop and in my mind that is going to be our downfall, our inabillity to accept the reality that their is a line to be drawn and that there is a limit to which we can grow.

    November 7, 2010 @ 8:22 am

    hahahahaha. The only thing this proves is that people will believe what they want to believe, and what they believe shapes the evidence.

    as to the debate about belief vs science (which is by the way, also a belief), every belief can be validated from its own view point, and disproven from that of another. To those who argue science, a lack of evidence is not evidence something can’t happen. No evidence of God is not evidence of no God. To those who argue religion, I seriously question weather your religion actually calls science evil. it is a tool, as evil as a hammer or spade. In close, both science and religion are appropriate ways of viewing the world, and the tendency to believe in either is not a testament of stupidity, rather of humanity.

    On a side note, to those who say science says we come from monkeys. This is inaccurate. The theory is as follows. Humans share a common ancestor with all primates, and we are most closely related to higher order primates like chimpanzees then monkeys. In fact, we are more closely related to chimpanzees then chimpanzees are to monkeys. Nonetheless, chimpanzees are just as different to our common ancestor as we are. Additionally, this is not proof of humans stupidity, rather our intelligence. Chimpanzees are remarkably intelligent, and humans brains at 1300cc in size (more than twice that of a chimp, 450cc). Science uncovers the journey through which humans attained language skills, abstract reasoning, and culture. Furthermore, it posits that the human brain is plastic, and can change, according to environment and needs. In other words, the possibilities are endless.

    This is so wrong. Since this is a human, bear, pig chimera, its part human so it thinks and has feelings. Yet, in the picture, you can clearly see that the chimeras are put in a glass case for everyone to see. Any since they’re part human, at least let them have their dignity and give then some clothes.

  196. jagatjit said,
    November 30, 2010 @ 10:37 pm

    Also, even though I’m only 12, even i can tell that this should happen (if it was to happen) by gods will because its like evolution, but only sicker. This is beyond humans’ rights to try and make new species of creatures. Think about what the chimeras are thinking. I’m pretty sure no one would want to be brought into this world as a creature without a proper mother, or love from some guardian of such.

  197. jagatjitsingh said,
    November 30, 2010 @ 11:01 pm

    this is inhumane, it should never happen because it should be something that god should decide to do. Second of all, they are part human so they have thoughts. you can even clearly see that they are in a case for everyone to see.tly, since thay are mostly human like us, give them their dignity, and give them some clothes, SERIOUSLY.

  199. jagatjit said,
    November 30, 2010 @ 11:18 pm

    first of all, this is something to be decided by god, not humans. SEcond, these chimers are part human, so have respect for them cause they’re sort of like your family. Even though I’m twelve, even I know that this is inhumane and we shouldn’t act like god, making new species. These chimeras are part human so they have feelings and are most definently feeling lonely. If these scientist are going to make some new species, make a few hundred more, make a reserve for this species, and let them live on their own. Lastly, even i can see that they are in s case for show. Also, since they’re part human, give them their dignity, and give them some clothes.
    On to other comments. First of all, all you people saying this isn’t bad, you are sick minded and inconsiderate. Being more specific, to Derek, I am completely sure that if I meet you, I’d shit-kick you for saying that. You’re the most disgusting man alive. In fact, your name makes more sense than you, because it tells the truth. Derek IS Dumb.

    Just so you know, this isn’t possible because of the number of chromosomes humans, bears, and pigs have. Since they’re all different, it makes any form of ‘breeding’ between them impossible… in a lab or not.

    Are the people who claim to think this is real serious or are they just being facetious? Seems like it’s mostly Christians too. I am a Christian, but I’m not retarded. Even if the person has never seen South Park, shouldn’t they question the Al Gore comment at the end and do a google search maybe? This is yet another reason why I can’t stand most people from my own religion.

    And do you really think they would actually name it manbearpig?!?!?!?! WTF?

    Obviously this is fake, but if it were real, it doesnt matter that we arent god, he gave us the ability to do theses things. If god didnt want us to do the things that humans do, we wouldnt be able to. It’s ridiculous how many people have put, ” THIS IS SO WRONG, WE ARENT GOD, we must beg him for forgivness!” Theres nothing to be forgiven, Scientists would have done nothing wrong is this were real. Thats what we are here for. To experiment, who knows, doing that^^^ could lead to a cure to cancer.
    So those who ARENT scientists, and havent studied this topic. Should keep thier opinions to themselves.

Last time I check he never instilled commandments stating thou shall not create artificial life. Beside you morons we create life and other NEW life forms every freaking day. Anyone ever heard of a dam Mule? Anyone heard of a Mutt? How about cross bread pollination for plants? before you Self righteous SoBs start flying off at the maybe you should look back at your own history of death, slaughter and inhumane treatment of innocent Men, Women, and Children. Your all so giving and merciful religion if its so great then why in the heck are their so many innocent people suffering around the world while you self righteous bastards sit idle spouting B.S. about how great your Church or religious organization is. However not one of you Christian Cults can look back on your history with out finding a path death murder and slaughter.

However,who the f*** do you think you are going off about the church. yah we cross breed dogs with other dogs,horses with other horses,and horses with donkeys (which i doubt you even new that was how mules were created) but this is WAY too far. who the hell wants to cross the intelligent species of human, with swine, with f***in bears!!! we are tampering with things that don’t need to be tampered with and taking technology to such a level that people like you start yelling at people for even believing in god. whats going to happen next? proof that there is no god? can’t be done. so stop being such an atheist and try reading a bible our maybe even worrying about your own country instead of talking about the entire worlds problems.

    I think the technology should be applied for better things rather than creating a whole new organism (eg a chimera). Applications should be channelized for organ transplant surgeries and treatment of diseases like liver cirrhosis!!!

    yeah, i knw sum ppl think this is nonsense, coz i wasnt christian untill i was 10.

    but maybe give it sum thought?? wat if there is sum1 there 4 u wenever u need Him??
    well, jst wen u go through a hard time…u dnt have to believe in a specific thing, jst maybe hv faith that evry thing would work out. that helps alot, it feels like there’s finally sum1 or sumthing that actually knows wat u r going through wen u knw the rest of the world doesnt. =]

    should religion even exist ??

    i think not but of the millions of religious people they would disagree with me.

    there are several instances that cannot be proven by science, believe it or not, science has its own boundary and limitation.

    Science decodes mystical beliefs or whatsoever. Men invented science, and so its theories. Men realized that without belief in God, there will be no prejudice and no judgment but boundless freedom.

    Science is not evil, its nonsense. as well this prank. haha! people made science complicated just like solving a formula composed of numbers, letters and equations blah blah blah, being taught in universities around the world, so what? we can’t use them anyway for our needs. inventions are o.k and quite useful but a waste of money for researches? we are going to die anyway so live the way you want it to be.

    we are being controlled, we are actually experiments. a specimen. i’m laughing my pants off. call me disgusting or ignorant if you want to. i don’t care anyway.

    i don’t care about people’s religions or beliefs anyway, i just believe in myself. we are all being deceived and everyday we are rotating in the world of deception. politics is bullshit. it’s up to us how we will survive in this so called human life. remember, we are not above the food chain.

    First off, anyone who said anything about humans coming from monkeys is a straight up retard. Humans are a type of Great Ape.

    Now to all the people who say this is wrong, why? There’s no ethical reason to not try and create a new form of life. The power of creating life doesn’t rest with God, because God doesn’t exist. Those beings with eh power to create life are those who are already alive, and that’s us.

    Wow, this is like the funniest shit I’ve ever seen! Not the picture, although that sure is a beautiful and interesting sculpture, and certainly not the “article” since it was way to obvious that it was a joke, but the comments and the discussions are just hilarious! At the same time it’s kind of scary to see how poorly people in general are able to think critically, and yet they feel that their opinion has value. I mean, if you reflect this light on democracy the image is almost horrifying. Don’t get me wrong, democracy is the only even remotely defendable way of running a country, but if the voters of this country are as easily manipulated as this, then that country is going stright into the gutter. Anyway, I’m definatly copying this whole thread, it will bring joy and laughter wherever I go!

    PS. That atheist vs. christian battle in the beginning was spot on! I encurage all christians to read through it and think of what the origin of their beliefs are. My money is on their parents and their childhood community, and if anyone answers that they themselves have reasoned their way there, then they are either liars or they need some kind of therapy… or maybe even a personal assistant to help them with their every-day needs..

  346. Colby said,
    May 21, 2011 @ 5:17 pm

    Obviously I knew this is fake, and guess what, I’m a Christian; I believe that Jesus is my Savior. So to all the people who are saying that people who believe in this stuff should go to hell aren’t true Christians. Jesus hates our sin but loves us even though we’re all sinners. Anyways, that said, I do think that people who say ALL Christians are crazy people who don’t know where their beliefs come from are wrong. You would have to know every single Christian in the world in order to determine that.
    To Johan: No, my faith didn’t come from my parents or my community. In fact, I live in a rather dangerous neighborhood and my parents didn’t become Christians until I was 10 years old. I didn’t even become a Christian until I was 14. I didn’t believe in Jesus just because my parents did. I believed because I know that He loved me before I ever loved Him. I have a lot of friends who are followers of Christ who don’t have Christian families or parents or don’t even have families at all.
    Wow this is a long post. So I don’t want to offend anyone, and I see where both sides are coming from, and I also realize that this whole picture/article was completely fake, but I’m sticking to my beliefs. I’m not going to “bash” anyone for what they believe in either. Sure, I can disagree, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to go on a rampage.

    Why not prevent bad things from happening for your health rather than being faced with them and trying all kinds of medical solutions to cure it? It is common knowledge that a healthy couple life means high health levels for both partners. Use nymphomax and follow a balanced life schedule in order to maintain constructiveness in your couple life. This may not apparently nothing to do with a certain issue like bones strengthening, but this is to key of learning the wide significance of prevention.

    would be nice if it were true. I seriously believe our technology has not reached a point that would allow us to create such creature, though.

    Oh and to all of you who believe we should not manipulate genetics: Man created God. God didn’t create anything. Keep in mind that with Earth’s current overpopulation, without genetically manipulated beings/plants or else, you would be starving right now.

    We have been using and exploiting all of Earth’s ressources for our survival. Living beings are no different, they are a source of food. Therefore manipulating genetics is only yet another way of “harvesting” for our own survival.

    August 19, 2011 @ 9:16 pm

    First off, I’m going to comment on the Article: It’s a talented (yet disturbing) sculpture & I love the South Park and Half life references. As for the shitstorm brewing in the comments, first off I’m agnostic, so I don’t know or care whether or not there is a god, and I believe there’s not enough evidence to support any argument on this topic. The Bible (and all holy books) are books, and books come in two categories, fiction and nonfiction, so they all have a 50:50 chance of being right or wrong. And since no one here was alive to witness Jesus get crucified or some author get high off his ass and think he saw it, I’d say it’s safe to say we can’t take anyone’s word for it. As for respect I say blame the individual, not the group. Not all Christians are fanatics or gullible enough to believe this article is real, and not all Atheists are logical and god-mocking. It’s individuals that reinforce these stereotypes that annoy the shir out of people that aren’t like them. Everyone’s got different beliefs, and should be respected, unless they themselves are disrespectful, in which case I say got for it!

  377. ManOfMayhem said,
    August 19, 2011 @ 9:52 pm

    And God or no, science is good! It brought us the Internet, computers, cars, housing, medicine, toilets, mass-production, etc… So if you believe science is evil, wrong, and an insult to god: get off of this website, turn off your computer, walk into the wilderness, live in a cave, get sick, shit on a stump, and write your own Bible, cause the one you read was probably mass-produced and (in your logic) is therefore by extension evil, wrong, and an insult to god, etc…

    How could this not be fake? Dr. Yogesh, it was posted over 3 years ago. Wouldn’t we all have a chimera of our own by now if this was feasible?

    Also, I see many posts referencing Christianity as their primary source. Fact: The first goespel (Matt) was written down decades after the story takes place. The rest of the three were done even later. Then there are the 20 or so other Gospels which were left out of the New Testament. Do you even know where and how the beliefs of Christianity started? Did you know that it is impossible for a Bible written in English to be the literal and precise word of God? Assuming the original writings are genuinely God’s word, you must read them in ancient hebrew. If you don’t know ancient Hebrew, then any mention based on literal references to the Bible is logically false and therefore weak.

    I am far less concerned by the creation of a manbearpig chimera than I am by the inability of many of those posting comments to construct sentences with reasonable spelling and grammar.
    I can barely understand some of these posts. Some folks seem to think it is cool to pretend they have little education and talk in the manner of an LA style gang member.
    Please, please, please everyone learn the difference between “your” and “you’re”. They mean totally different things.

    This statue has obviously done it’s job because it got people thinking. Congratulations to it’s true creator, Patricia Piccinini.

    Those who were fooled can use this as a wake up call to not believe everything you read – especially from the internet or if you get your news from from any of Rupert Murdoch’s outlets.

    It’s a sculpture at the Bendigo Art Gallery. The artist is Patricia Piccinini, she specializes in hyper realistic sculptures. She often sculpts these hybrids as a way to criticize contemporary technology and it’s influence on our understanding.

    When humans become so obsessed with altering the human body, rather than improving our thinking–downfall is the result. Hopefully Re-naissance is next…but there are no guarantees. With all the violence in the world, why would scientists not conquer that first? The only answer I can think of….is because the Powers that Be WANT the violence. If they didn’t, it would be conquered as crossing uncrossable DNA has been. DEMAND BETTER DOCTORS & MEDICINE…rather than simply “accepting” procedure this as “wrong”–then moving on with your day.

    Common people use your heads! While I’m sure some of the first comments on this article were really from people that fell for this THREE YEARS AGO; after the like hundredth comment…not to mention the first year or so, isn’t it obvious that the majority of these so called “outraged Christians” commenting or the “nerdy know it all Athiests” pitching in are really just a small number of Trolls getting their kicks and giggles with the few people still gullible enough to actually believe this BS.

    There are many phrases repeated nearly word for word or statements basically saying the same thing with a slightly different sentence structure. This is not by chance, because there’s really only a few different ways to say the same things after the like 300th time! Also a lot of the so called “misspelled” comments are just from the same Trolls trying to make it appear that new people keep commenting ansoloist of the statements from people that “apologize” for their bad English because they are not from an English speaking country also fit into this category.

    However, I’m in no way claiming that there still aren’t real dingbats still falling for this crap; because I know there are and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. Nothing brings out the crazies like religion and science discussions. I’m not even going to comment on the article or my views towards the morality issues involved with the supposed creation of a ManBearPig. Trolls just really annoy me, and I just don’t understand how anyone could still get their kicks out of this after hundreds of comments, not to mention years have passed. All this does is make us modern Americans look like the dumbest fucking bunch of idiots to ever walk this planet (which I’m sad to say is not completely unwarranted…). And for you poor fools still gullible enough to actually fall for this article or for the Trolls attempts at eliciting an emotional response from you, I really don’t know what to say anymore….other than, well…WOW.

    Most of you are soooo thick its unbelievable, you question nothing! You believe its gospel because it has an intelligent (purposely confusing) narrative – Like your religions (fairytales) – you religious nuts say “stop playing God” “cure Aids or Cancer”, is God not the creator of everything? Even diseases? So by that logic are you not encouraging Science to go against Gods will? By your belief should we be curing anything? As its Gods will to strike us down with debilitating disease and species threatening viruses i.e the plague/Aids! You actually ALWAYS highlight your contradictions in your attempts to justify your beliefs – just like your religions which are a massive contradiction to human nature and in general! Religion has no place in a modern free world it puts restraints on us and holds the human race back! Not to mention its responsible for more wars and deaths (murders) throughout the ages than any other causes (except natural) combined! For the belief in what; A talking snake? A guy who lived in a fish? A father who let the sex crazed villagers rape his own daughters rather than some angels? Really? And thats not even the worst of it!

    For those Christians who might be taken back by some of the comments above remember what Christ said: “Don’t throw your pearls before swine”. There is a dark side and a place prepared for those who are part of it. Our God promised to take care of “the lost”. That’s enough for me and you might seriously consider letting it comfort you as well.
    You can’t go buy a box of dark. Dark is simply the absence of light. What else would you expect from those who ever accepted Christ? Stay strong in your faith knowing that The Lord wins in the end and His children join Him in His victory. Praise God always!!

    Wow, such a long repeat of the same discusion over and over and over, not to be redundant here. I recommend Cerbians comment on June 10, 2010 above. My only added comment is that each side (of this and every “dialog”) claims truth, and since the other side can’t see the truth they must be stupid. We don’t know, you know. I seriously doubt some moralistic god is cringing over this photo/sculpture, but could be. No human is stupid, well not most; they just think differently. Many seem to be threatened with thoughts that don’t agree with theirs; of course the reaction to perceived threat is attack for self/family/nation/Chicago Bears fans protection. We seem to do that to each other very very very well, all in the name of making the world a better place for all, well, at least all moral upstanding people, like those that believe in democracy, freedom, and women’s rights, as opposed to those evil Taliban who shoot women for their husband’s adultery. There ARE limits to tolerance, of course. Yes of course, I just don’t feel qualified to make them for anyone else but me. Others, it seems, have no problem with that.

    Actually, something like this would THEORETICALLY be possible. If we had that kind of technology (which we don’t), that kind of money (which I highly doubt anyone commenting has), and it was legal (it isn’t). The you MIGHT be able to make a chimera that survived at least until a recognizable embryo. Chances are, it would far before then. Having the organism survive being born would be a miracle. Having it survive to maturity would be another miracle. Creating another one of the opposite gender would be yet another miracle. Ditto to having both individuals being biologically fertile, even with messed up genes… it goes on and on.
    Pretty cool sculpture though.

    Loved to read the replies, you would indeed suggest Christians are less intelligent based on the replies here… I know that isn’t true though, although I live in Europe, maybe America is different?

    It is a well set up joke though. They got the correct genes for making iPS cells. And as Owen says we could try making chimera’s We do have the technology. Getting it to survive and be fertile is indeed something else. Especially if you want to make 50/50 chimera’s. To make more simple chimera’s , that ain’t so difficult. We have made chimera’s in the past and still do. Corn with genes to resist pesticides and herbicides. Cows that make enzymes to break down Lactose. Rice that makes vitamin A (golden rice) etc. Scientists try a lot of gene swapping between species. Always to find answers and solutions for problems no evil intentions.
