one could therefore recreate a Neanderthal.
More worryingly, one could apply the differences between Neanderthals and modern Humans to another ape and create an intelligent slave species; not human enough to have rights but human enough to provide useful work.
im however against cloning humans... but only dumb humans.
Being dumb is not always a genetic condition; it is often the result of psychological trauma or neural damage later in life. I don't think that in itself the disability should make someone unsuitable for cloning.
