I'm not sure what your point was 14 years ago, but if you mean is it a concern for one species of animal to breed with or become genetically fused to another, I'm not sure how humans would be involved, seeing as how we are the only species that even is capable of making such decisions.
Moreso, after reading the news this morning, I was impressed with how unlike animals humans actually are. We do things to each other that are far worse. No animals would ever band together to do something such as this:
I've heard that chimpanzees can be quite violent, whereas Bonobos and even Gorillas are quite peaceful by comparison.
Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul "A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." –Mark Twain " ~"If that's not sufficient for you go soak your head."~Faith Paul was probably SO soaked in prayer nobody else has ever equaled him.~Faith :)
Actually it is quite common for animals to band together to kill both their own species and other species. Many animals are territorial and will hunt and kill other members of their same species that enter or infringe on their territory. There are also examples of animals that will expand or move their territory driving out, killing or adopting the members of their species that are in the new territory.
Humans are just animals and so we often behave just like the other animals.
But the topic was meant to address the question of genetic engineering of humans as well as other species.
We do things to each other that are far worse. No animals would ever band together to do something such as this:
Have you ever heard of lions, Phat?
Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
We got a thousand points of light for the homeless man. We've got a kinder, gentler, machine gun hand. Neil Young, Rockin' in the Free World.
