I don't know how the Exchange works. I hereby predict that within two years
there will be human clones gestating. Within two years and nine months,
there will be cloned humans born.

As a former molecular biologist, I take issue with all the speculation about
geniuses, serial killers, etc. Genes are not that specific. An intelligent
person is likely to produce an intelligent clone. An athletic person is
likely to produce an athletic clone. A female clone will surely produce a
female. That's about as good as you can hope for.

You can not prevent technology from happening. Of that I am sure. For good
or evil, we will have cloning.
