My Gut Tells Me This Is Wrong...

UK Mail Online:
Scientists have created more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories.
The hybrids have been produced secretively over the past three years by researchers looking into possible cures for a wide range of diseases. 
Figures seen by the Daily Mail show that 155 ‘admixed’ embryos, containing both human and animal genetic material, have been created since the introduction of the 2008 Human Fertilisation Embryology Act. 
This legalised the creation of a variety of hybrids, including an animal egg fertilised by a human sperm; ‘cybrids’, in which a human nucleus is implanted into an animal cell; and ‘chimeras’, in which human cells are mixed with animal embryos. 
Human-animal hybrids? It's crunch-time, folks. Are we crossing a line? Are we exceptional, or are we not? Are human beings merely, as darwinists and atheists like David Suzuki insist, mere animals, no better, no worse, and nothing more? And if all creation is by accident and not by design, with no externally-imposed, objective right-and-wrong, good-and-bad underlying human existence, why not?

So, here's the question. Is there, or is there not, a line here that can be crossed? I'm listening to my gut -- what does yours say? Sometimes inward intuition is a source of knowledge. Meanwhile the atheist empiricist can only protest, "where's the evidence?".

The evidence? It's in the intuitions of the human heart. What's left is for us to figure out whether these intuitions of human exceptionalism were implanted as a cruel trick of mindless evolution, or by a purposeful Creator.

Regain your full humanity. Rebel against the atheist machine.™

And that's the way the Ball bounces.

One thing is for certain: The issue should be up for public debate, not reserved only for scientists within industry or a bureaucratic agency.
