i say that we clone these endangered species so that we can preserve these animals for i say the future generation.The thing is that these animals should be viewed or seen and studied further by the children of the next gen.Now it can be easy to study these for they are still alive rather than only the artifacts of this animals are studied.Im thinking of this because i know that the main purpose of the people is to take care of these creatures created by God.

Greetings Mr.Tepman, you must be from the future.
In our time, cloning still is an experimental technology that succeeds only by chance.

Dolly the sheep is the most famous example of a successful cloning today. She was born after 277 eggs were used to create 29 embryos, which only produced three lambs at birth, only one of which lived.
I think that the death of 29 embryos, and 2 lambs is a high cost for the life of one sheep, this is a highly controversial issue and I will not waste any more words on it in this round.

My main argument in this debate will be this one;

"Animal cloning is highly experimental today. Further research in this field, with the aim of saving endangered species is highly likely to siphon funds from established and working projects and does not address any of the issues underlying animal extinction (such as habitat destruction, hunting or other overexploitation, and an impoverished gene pool)."

We should not waste our time and money on very expensive and highly experimental measures, while many of the animals we are trying to save are still alive.

Let�s freeze tissue of endangered animals and let scientists work on cloning technology by themselves.
When the right time comes, we can bring them back to live, without endangering the already endangered animals of the present.

Patience, Mr. Tepman, patience...

Mr.Pallkvaran,

i think you did not know what cloning is.You see in cloning, we try to take some samples of eggs or sex cells from this animals.this doesnt really harm them.
Yes let's im from the future where people was almost extinct because of armageddon.but this doesnt change the fact that cloning,as i was speaking should
be used in endangered species.Cause in the time where i belong, they used cloning for people and used this to destroy human kind.all the powerful people now where beheaded and massacred.Mr.pallkavaran,im having this debate to tell the whole world that they must only use cloning in animals and not humans understand.If you do this then it would be a favor

Mr. Tepman, I am sorry to inform you about this, but you do not make any sense.
You did not consider any of my arguments, and made no effort to answer any of them.
Instead, you childishly claimed that you were, indeed, from the future and babbled on about that subject. You also claimed that I am not familiar with the subject of cloning, which I find offensive.

Please read my earlier arguments and make an effort to answer them, or present new arguments in favor of your stand on the issue we are debating.

I will any more of my time on this, for now.

i think this debate is sort of dumb just ssaying. I think that we should leave the endangered animals alone
