RE: Scientist will try to clone a human

Perhaps the cooking-a-frog principle applies in this case. If you put a frog
in boiling water, it will jump out. But if you put it in warm water and then
slowly turn the heat on, it won't notice the difference in temperature and
will willingly cook.

[Perhaps the specific story above is just a legend - I never personally
tried cooking a live frog - but the analogy nevertheless might apply...]
