There are many applications for this type of thing - imagine an animal that contains a specific blood type, organ, etc. that would be suitable for human use but must be genetically the same each time. Not to mention this would be a much more efficient way to reproduce in a research/academic sense and if the scientists wanted to focus on a certain gene pattern they wouldn't have to clone the animal themselves.
So we should farm cloned animals for their blood and organs? Take a course in ethics...

Not before you take a course in reading. Point me to where I made a personal stance on the purpose of the research. Just because I'm citing why this research might be conducted does not mean I support it.

Oh and newsflash, it's already being done.

Typically, if you're going to attack a thread full of people before going on to post theories, you either state or imply your stance on the research. You did neither, which would lead a person to assume you are pro said research.

Also, IBTL.

Why would I take a stance on said theories when they are completely irrelevant (to the topic at least)?

A mammoth isn't a dinosaur.

I find the irony of this post very satisfying. Science gave you the computer and internet you're using to ask why science never does anything useful...

Actually, this is evolution, it just isn't being guided by natural selection.

Evolution, at it's most broad definition, is allele frequency changes in a population of organisms. This particular population was artificially selected for, but the mechanics in the background are the same.

Can we clone dinosaurs?

I mean c'mon, what's the worst that could happen?
