Submission + - Extinct Species That Could Be Brought Back (

Press2ToContinue writes: Diversity is a good thing, right? If so, then what if we could bring back extinct species at will? According to a current article in National Geographic, we just may be at that point now, and the list of species ranges from wooly mammoth, Tasmanian tiger and the woolly rhinoceros to the passenger pigeon and the dodo.

It seems inevitable: it's not a question of "should we," but "when will we?" So the question really seems to be, "who gets to decide?" And if done, can it be undone?

Oh, and one more question.... "where's the goat??" (Jurassic Park, 1993)
