For example: science clones a sheep and takes another step beyond that to actually contemplating cloning a human being. Too many people of religious stature, cloning is just morally wrong but scientists refuse to listen, always reiterating what they have always stated. The ideas that are formed through science and the discoveries stemming from those ideas are always done with the best interest of human kind in utmost consideration.
