(Worthy News) - A handful of scientists around the United States are trying to do something that some people find disturbing: make embryos that are part human, part animal.

The researchers hope these embryos, known as chimeras, could eventually help save the lives of people with a wide range of diseases.

One way would be to use chimera embryos to create better animal models to study how human diseases happen and how they progress.

Perhaps the boldest hope is to create farm animals that have human organs that could be transplanted into terminally ill patients. [ ... Read More (Source) ]

  1. Jesus said the end times would be "as in the days of Noah" when hybrids (fallen angels/humans) were upon the earth. Once again world events reflect the accuracy of God's word. Are you ready for what happens next?

  2. And tell me why human organs from humans can't be transplanted into terminally ill patients (?) Can human organs only grow in animals (?)

  3. Oh, there is far more need than just getting what donor organs from humans can supply. It's a very big market and the need for human livers, kidneys, hearts, lungs, lots of spare parts are needed and the parts need to "Match" which actually happens in varying degrees. Most people who receive an organ transplant then have to take very serious drugs to keep the new part from being rejected by their body. And those anti-rejection drugs have to be taken for the rest of someone's life. If a new heart grown from my (or your) own dna, there would be no bother about dealing then with any rejection issues. It makes a big difference. Esp for someone who is hard to find a match to.
