Re: [RC] Endurance clones/New Years resolution - Truman Prevatt

Something more to chaw on. (Ignoring the drugs) what made Barry Bonds such a great baseball player. Was it because he was the son of a decent ball player (Bobby Bonds) - or was it the fact that since he could stand up his father and his God father - none other than Willy Mays - programmed into his reflexes to make the pitcher pitch to him and never take the pitcher off the hook by swinging at a bad ball. Barry long ago broke the major league record for base on balls drawn. If you only swing at strikes you will be a great player - better than your Daddy.

It took God 6 days to create a handful of critters and two rather idiotic humans - what makes us think we can "fix" anything He made? And for those who do not believe in God, well, we could create the next Big Bang...ouch!
What is wrong with judicious breeding, which is actually enough of a manipulation, given the truck people tend to breed when their brain is in the bank vault. I personally don't care what Cash does or does not do since I would breed to a clone ever anyway. If he was gelded once there was probably a reason, like, there are too many TERRIFIC stallions out there already - same reason we gelded out stunning and substantial BLACK colt...maybe what makes them special has less to do with their genes at a point and more to do with environment, timing, opportunity etc. Just cud to chew for 2008.
