CNN Blogs is reporting that scientists [are] trying to clone, resurrect extinct mammoth. As a dyed-in-the-wool science fiction fan, I love this sort of thing. And I really hope it worksand works out better than the cloning of extinct animals did in Jurassic Park.
As a so-called “young earther,” I don’t believe the animal they’re trying to clone truly went extinct 12,000 years ago. I believe the earth is a few thousands years less old than that. But I still wish them the best on this endeavor. No matter how many years ago they died off, have a real woolly mammoth at the zoo would be really cool.
