I love the great Tommy Lee Jones.
That's far more reasonable than refusing to believe that the giant skeleton towering over you is for all intents and purposes the skeleton of a fire-breathing dragon.
Fire breathing? I think you overstate things here.
In point of fact what the museum displays is often a cast of the original fossil (can you blame them?), though they generally will label it as such.
I wonder when creationists will start vandalizing museums.
though they generally will label it as such
Reading this I realized it was unclear. I meant to say that the museum will actually say somewhere in the presentation that what you are looking at is a copy, not that they will dishonestly label it as the original.
A long time from now they will be digging up petrified Christian crosses and someone will say "I don't believe Christians ever existed".
Truth is shittier than fiction sometimes.
WTF is this guy going to do when this is successfully completed?
Sadly, that reminds me too much of the creature Dr. Frankenstein created, who had to live out his life alone, never having been asked to be created, reminding me of Jeff Goldblum's line from Jurassic Park, "You did it because you could, but you never asked if you should."
Dude.. none of us asked to be created.
Really, I'm more worried that clones don't have a particularly comforting mortality rate.
The first few attempts are going to result in a creature(s) with serious medical issues.
Will they get taxpayer-provided health care?
From Russian and Korean taxpayers, I suppose.
Actually, I'm not sure how/if open source funding is available there.
Could all be private money involved.
Tell your friend that just as the Bible is proof of god's existence, so the movie, "Jurassic Park" is proof of dinosaurs' existence.
