Paging Doctor Moreau...

As a kid I remember reading some of H.G. Wells famous works. The Time Machine, The Invisible Man and War of the Worlds (I love the ORIGINAL movie).

One of the more bizarre stories from this collection was The Island of Doctor Moreau.

The story goes...
"On a deceivingly beautiful island in the South Seas exists the sinister kingdom of Doctor Moreau. Shipwrecked in this seeming paradise, the unfortunate Edward Prendick stumbles upon the wild beastly creations of the sadistic doctor and enters into a bizarre and terrifying world of a doctor who plays an evil God and cruelly creates monstrosities of living creatures." (Quote)

Reading this as a kid kind of sent shivers down my spin...but then...this could never happen.

Fast forward to 2006, the 21st Century and this article from London, England entitled "Scientists To Create 'Frankenbunny' In Big Research Leap'

For the advancement of science...Yah right! More for the advancement of the dollar.

Stem Cell research...ahuh

I keep thinking about all those embryo's (babies) that will be created and destroyed by this madness..

Again with the shivers down the spine...

Lets pray for the unborn babies: "Into Your Hands O Lord..."

"Each preserved the quality of its particular species: the human mark distorted but did not hide the leopard, the ox, or the sow, or other animal or animals, from which the creature had been moulded."

H.G. Wells (Island of Doctor Moreau - Chapt. 15)
