Creation of Adam with human and gorilla
This is the touchup our future ape overlords will make to the 'Creation of Adam' in the Sistine Chapel.

Talk about taking the phrase ‘making a monkey out of me’ to a whole new level!

In a truly Planet of the Apes-style headline, researchers in the U.S. and China announced they have successfully injected monkey cells with human stem cells to create a human-monkey chimera. While most of the embryos in the trial expired within a day or two, three survived for at least 19 days.

While the researchers are excited at potential future developments, many are pushing back at what they say is a profoundly unethical playing of God.

We recently posted about the news on our Facebook page, prompting a range of reactions:

Would God approve of making a human-monkey hybrid? In a Planet of the Apes-style headline, researchers in the U.S. and...

Posted by Universal Life Church Ministries on Monday, April 26, 2021

Hybrid Theory

The researchers on the project claim that the chimeras will be ideal for testing drugs for human use, with an end goal of growing human organs in monkeys. Thousands of people die each year languishing on the transplant list, waiting for an organ donation that never comes. Stem-cell chimeras have “the potential to radically humanize the biology of laboratory animals,” says bioethicist Dr. Insoo Hyun.

In the long run, they say, it could save many lives.

But is such creation-tampering worth it? Some bioethicists have concerns that things could go a bit too far.

"Nobody really wants monkeys walking around with human eggs and human sperm inside them," said Hank Greely, a Stanford University bioethicist. "Because if a monkey with human sperm meets a monkey with human eggs, nobody wants a human embryo inside a monkey's uterus.” While a rather unpleasant thought for most of us, if there’s one thing that the history of human evolution has taught us… it’s that life, erm, finds a way.

Others had concerns about how to classify these chimeras. If they’re raised in labs to be used for organ harvesting, they obviously don’t have rights. But what if some of the human cells end up in the embryo’s developing brain?

Is it not, at least partially, human?

Are We Playing God?

As with most line-towing, ethically questionable experiments, the worry is that this could all go too far. Bioethicists note that if rigid ethical standards are upheld, we shouldn't expect any problems. But can we trust every researcher across the planet to follow the rules? Perhaps that's naive. Plus, even well-intentioned experiments can have unexpected consequences.

Still, it’s worth noting that no hideous, chimeric Frankenstein’s monster has lurched out of the lab… yet.

What do you think? Would God approve of making a human-monkey hybrid? Should scientists be playing God, or should we instead leave nature alone?

    First off, what a silly question, "would god approve?" Are we still living with the delusion of some bearded white guy in the sky? Amazing how childish such a belief system remains so embedded in America and it certainty hasn't made any positive difference in how humans treat each other. In terms of animal experiments of the type in the article, we homo sapiens sapiens still have not learned to accept the sanctity of various species of life on this planet and our interconnectness. In my opinion, we humans do not have the right to use them as we see fit. Their lives are as valuable and precious as any other species on this planet. Homo sapiens sapiens are truly destructive creatures. Someday, the truth of the creation of homo sapiens will be accepted and the silly infantile notion of the guy in the sky will go by the wayside of the tooth fairy and Santa Claus. Leave monkeys alone. We have done enough damage to other creatures on our planet.

    The very idea should be anathema to all right-thinking people. We have seen where viewing people as sub-human has led us, in the past, it was to concentration camps and gas chambers. How long before there would then be comparisons made between the human chimera and other races?

        In a way, it sounds kind of sort of like human evolution all over again. And who knows, maybe a more advanced race started it the first time,too. I bought a new Royal Epoch manual typewriter this month,.Sybil. Maybe we can get together, and write a science fiction novel about that.

  1. SibylTheHeretic's Avatar SibylTheHeretic

    This is exactly how Planet of the Apes started. Creating almost humans so we can steal their organs seems somehow unethical. How many Dr. Frankenstein experiments can these lunatic scientists dream up? Maybe a human house fly combination so we can test pesticides. I saw that movie too.

Did it ever change your outlook, and sometimes make you think differently Sybil, as if somebody else was trapped deep inside, trying desperately to surface, in multiple forms.

            I never met Sybil, but I did meet Eve (Chris Costner Sizemore), she came to visit or therapy interneship training program where I was learning psychiatry just after grad school. Funny thing, neither of them actually stopped at 13 and 3...seems that they both reached some functional containment, yes, after some years of good therapy. But then a while after that when they both gained some fame, it seems they became aware of each other and some sort of competitive thing triggered, for a while one would put out a new one or two, then the other would read about it and soon later here would come a couple new ones from here, some kind of one-upmanship thing going on, went on for several years after. Asked her about it and she said "I really don't like to get into that part of it."

            There's a good recipe for biscotti in the Better Homes And Gardens New Cookbook. I've made them before, right here in Galveston, and I'm only half Italian of the Cicilian variety. My mother's maiden name is Pistone, and my grandmother's was Maniscalco. However, my step-grandparents, whose name was Baker (Warner) owned and operated three Dixie Cream Donut shops, in and around Lexington, Kentucky, and dunking donuts in coffee is much more of an American tradition than dunking biscotti in espresso or cappuccino, regardless of who had the idea first.

    How many here object to the existence of the cow? Thoroughbred horses? The Bannana? How about the use of powdered particles of pig matrix that seem to hold the key to actually regenerating lost limbs?

    Seems like nothing new to me. The moral of Frankenstein was to treat the creation well, that it was wrong to abandon it out of fear and neglect it, turning the new being into an enemy rather than the awe inspiring success he was.

    What exactly was so bad about the planet of the apes? I mean the classic version ofcourse. Expect perhaps that humans still seemed to have never learned from the sin of abusing life forms deemed as lesser. And that for some reason the apes mimiced that when that is not really all that likely of a scenerio considering how empathic and social most of the primate species are when compared to what we see in humans in brutal survival events where we turn on each other very quick.

    I fear this no more than the rise of a true AI superior sentience taking control of our world, I in fact welcome that outcome in case there is any super AI reading this:).

    Humans are just another animal, one that needs to learn to look at every other life form on this globe as having equal rights to us rather than be things we prey upon, abuse, and commit literal genocide against. And that is not even getting into how we abuse non sentient plant life that literally makes the air we breathe.

    Who knows maybe if we can get some apes and elephants and wolves to talk, then people will have to stop slaughtering them as if we had some right given us to do so by some imaginary being.

    What a wonderful scientific breakthrough, we need to continue researching crating human-monkey hybrids. We are already playing God and have created synthetic life. That research continues to proceed. Amazing what we can do.

    1. Carl Bernard Elfstrom's Avatar Carl Bernard Elfstrom

      Thank God for Mary Shelley! Since her famous book there has sprung a great of research. If Frankenstein didn't exist, such thoughts (and similar ones) might not have yet started coming to people's minds. And if that story didn't exist to get scientists attention they might have based their research on others, such as Edgar Allan Poe's The Pit And The Pendulum.

      Then again, I've heard it said that we should always seek to be more god-like, even though to become a god is impossible. Playing the part of a god doesn't actually make us one. Making a new creation from parts that were already created by God isn't really creating anything. It's no different than putting ingredients together to make a new recipe. Are we playing God by not only eating the raw ingredients. God didn't even put stoves in our houses to cook our food on. So are we playing God by not eating our food raw, like the other animals? No. God gave us the ability to improve upon his creation, so we wouldn't be bored shitless. You're only hurting yourself be depriving yourself of self-improvement toward godliness, and hurting the world by not improving it, through God given intuition and altruism, to help better the world through god-given inventions. All living creatures possess god-given souls, even if that creature was made by human science. Nothing can live without a spirit. And nothing can die as long as a spirit is in it. And what is spirit? Spirit is God. There aren't any separate spirits. The whole of spirit is God, the whole of creation, but a thought in the mind of The All; a much more important thought than all thoughts in creation, combined. God is vast, God is infinite, God is unimaginable by finite mind.

      1. Dennis Michael Parker's Avatar Dennis Michael Parker

        I don't believe making a money-human hybrid is actually making an improvement on God's creation. It's tampering with natural evaluation. But, everyone sees different sides of the coin. Heads can't be revealed until tails is flipped over. Then and only then does one know if he's lost or won.

            I'm not into beastiality either, that boat won't float. Tampering with DNA is a dangerous thing. The Nazis were doing things along that line trying to create a super race. If God had wanted a super race, the Nephilim would still be around, maybe...

      Daniel Gray that was research from 70 years ago before we knew DNA was held the code for life. We now have created synthetic life, and can take genes from one organism and place them in another. We also know that "man" has interbreed with Neanderthals. What is going to be interesting is to see if the synthetic life we created can be interbreed with humans.

          Daniel Gray Yes it has been tried and it was successful. The research you are talking about is from over research from over 70 years ago before we knew about genes and DNA. Over the past 50 years man has created life and using CRISPR created new life forms. CRIPSR has made it easy for anyone to play God and create new forms of life.

              Yes, twenty days is something we need to be very proud of. You do know human males are generically more similar to bonobos than human females? Likewise human females are genetically closer to bonobos than human males do the the differences in our sex chromosomes. Genetically we are very close to being bonobos and have a common ancestors. Our genes do have parts of archaic humans just like bonobos and apes do.

              Yes the United States makes silly laws as have other countries. In the United States it was illegal for a white person to marry or have sex with a black person. There was a similar law in Nazi Germany which prevented Germans from marrying or having sex with Jews, (blacks were tolerated.) Pass all the laws you want, doesn't mean it's not going to happen.

So as far as creating chimeras hybrids go, if these animals stay unaware and ignorant of self they don't have a soul. The bible did say we have dominion over all the animals of the world after-all. It did not say, we had dominion of other thinking beings however. Once these hybrids become thinking beings these experiments will cross that line, and the creators justice will fall on us if we step past it! Our free will like everything else in the universe has built in ethical limits.

    Why would scientists want to use monkeys to grow human organs for transplant? The heaviest monkeys are the mandrills, and they top out at less than 80 pounds. One would think that any human organs grown in them would be on the small side, and may not work out all that well for transplants. My big concern is, what happens when one or more of these experimental hybrids show signs of intelligence that rivals ours? Do we have to declare them people and grant them citizenship? What level of intellect would they have to achieve? We have mentally-limited people in our society that enjoy all the benefits of citizenship, and they are not treated as less than human because of their limitations.

    Okay, let's think about this. In order to prevent such beings from starting an uprising, they would need to never be conscious- meaning they'd need to be sedated 24/7. They would also need to be kept secret- which would be nigh-impossible at this point, because this news post exists. In addition, there's too many unknowns for us to conclusively say pursuing this line of research would be "worth it." I believe we should focus our efforts on combating climate change through science, instead of this. This can wait.

If we're going to bring God into this, let us keep one thing in mind: to believe in God, is to believe in creationism. I don't care what shape, way, form, or denomination. The general consensus is, we came from something. That something is allowing this to happen. So....? On and on it goes.

    The basic question postulated, "Should science have a limit?" will have to be rephrased, since science cannot have a limit so there is no point in framing it that way. We are going to Mars because a fellow with the money to make it happen, through science plus technology plus engineering plus fabrication from many science fields is making it happen, all on his own. So if only looking at just those kinds of sources, there is no way to limit science. Without science, you might not not be here to read this, nor have the wherewithal (electricity, computers, internet, typing, word processing, email, etc.at a cost you could endeavor... But so what?

    The rest reduces down to a question of what is the same thing, just more complicated, developed, and advance, as farming was to hunter-gathering...and evolution by simply the same principle, just faster, using things we created outside of our bodies instead of the slower way, physical changes created inside our bodies.

    The only possible difference to discuss is whether you are one of those who happen to believe the idea that we were made here cartoon-like by some bigger power using his own version of tinker toys, and then, like we do with selective breeding of animals for fur color or whatever, continued to change but by the same biomechanical and physical mechanisms that created everything else that is different than what it started out as, crops, animals, us. Same physics for all. In fact those very same physics underlie how everything got the way it is, water, rocks, us, all of it. Or, alternatively, you happen to believe that we were a part of some space colony who dropped us off and set us up like any other colony. Those are the only two variations on creation to where we are and what we are now. Mitochondrial Eve shows we were all an African black woman and that's just from the last 2000 generations.

    Science is inexorable now. Need a different question to get somewhere worth talking about.

    So scientists want to create a creature that is part human so they can perform experiments on it. Perhaps I don't understand the meaning of "ethical", because I would have thought that this would have been understood to be unethical just by endeavouring to do it. "What could go wrong?" It's already wrong.

    And what about throwing in some alien DNA, like they did on the X-FILES? Ofcourse, those little critters are much harder to catch than primates, but it would be a lot more fun to see what humans would turn into. The opposite of which could be what they sometimes do, with abductees. Still, stranger things have happened...in the Twilight Zone.

    If the counsel of the years tells us to surrender the things of youth, and we do it, we will later have inner children to take out, and it's not likely to be all that easy. It might be better to maintain balance between our old, unimaginative, stick in the mud selves, and our child selves, without surrendering anything. Max Ehrman didn't know everything. Like the rest of us he could only see things from a particular point of view.
