Jesus Contemplates Human Cloning

Jesus understands the great power and opportunity that lies in our ability to clone human beings, according to a funny, fictional Q&A by David Ng in the Science Creative Quarterly. In the discussion, Jesus learns the basics of genetics and imagines cloning himself:

GENETICIST: It is strangely fitting that you talk about your own needs, since the ultimate hope is for one day to use these cloning methodologies to alter deficiencies within our own human genetics. In fact, we could even one day clone a version of You with alterations of your own asking.

JESUS: That, my child, is an interesting option. I am allergic to kiwi, and I LOVE kiwi. Also, truth be told, I am also deeply troubled by my inability to roll my tongue (sticks his tongue out). See? It is the seat of much anguish since both my parents, Mary and Joseph, can do it. Sometimes I don’t even think they are my real parents.

(Thanks, Seed.)

The cloning of Jesus will become a reality sooner than you think! It's coming to the big screen in a fun & jaw dropping comedy call "The Second Coming" written by Vito Jennette & Jay DiMare. The idea has been pitched around for years, until Trinity Angels Productions decided there is no better time than now. The comedy will begin when two archeologist discover the Holy shroud of Turin locked inside of an ancient snuff box. after careful consideration by the church, higher powers decide to clone the Dna...but there is a coffee spill during the cloning process resulting in a coffee colored boy...no cream, no sugar? It isn't until 18years later when Jes "Jesus" sneezes in the lunchroom turning all the water into wine...later to be followed by homeless men (disciples) because of word spreading of a man with the power to turn water into wine. This story will have you leaving your seats wondering why no one thought of this a long time ago?
