A Good Day For Apemen. 1
So now that scientists are working on the genetic code of the Neanderthals it would appear that there is a real possibility that England could field 11 Wayne Rooneys. The ethics of cloning them are murky to say the least because of how close to human they would be, if we wish to clone extinct species the Dodo, the Mammoth or the Tasman Tiger would probably be safer to begin with. I suspect that the more significant reason for not bringing them back is that they would die out almost immediately from the 30000 years worth of diseases we have become immune to.
