Cloning & Stem Cell Research

Researcher and monster investigator Linda Godfrey discussed her strange creature investigations and the bizarre discoveries associated with them. "I seem to be getting more reports in which it was obvious there were connections to other things," she said, noting a possible link between creatures, such as bigfoot and upright canines, and unexplainable lights, UFOs, weird zones of quietness, strange mists, and portals.

Cloning & Stem Cell Research

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - December 29, 2004
Host: George Noory
Guests: Wesley J. Smith, Linda Moulton Howe

Author and consultant Wesley J. Smith discussed the science and ethics of stem cell research and human cloning, in the middle two hours of the show. He expressed concern that the public is acquiescing to whatever scientists want and that the "sanctity of human life" is under threat.

While stem cells have shown promise in treating degenerative diseases, often embryonic stem cells are rejected by the body, he said. It is for this reason, it's being proposed that patients undergo "therapeutic cloning" i.e. clones made of themselves, which would then have the embryonic stem cells extracted for the patient's use, he explained.
But for Smith, this poses a moral problem, as the embryos could also be used for reproduction. In this situation, we are "creating human life for the purpose of destroying it," he asserted, and this is treating human life as a "marketable product."

The last hour was devoted to Open Lines for callers to react to the devastating aftermath of the tsunami.

US vs. UFOs

First hour guest, reporter and editor Linda Moulton Howe of Earthfiles.com presented an update on UFO activity in 1952, playing interview segments she conducted with UFO researchers Frank Feschino and Stanton Friedman. According to information she pieced together, the US government was possibly involved in a "secret war" with UFOs. Aircraft were being shot down or disintegrated by unknown craft, until the US rescinded their order to attack the UFOs, she said. Click here for more.
