> The discussion was about cloning Thor to create a weapon. Not cloning itself, not about the implications of cloning and ethics, etc. Just cloning Thor as a weapon. In past debates where I've railed against cloning Thor as a weapon, you veered the discussion towards cloning itself.

No it was never as simple as that...look again many other topics of discussion.

The implications of cloning and ethics are a lot more grey then you seem to think. Much better details are covered in threads above.

It's not so simple as "They cloned Thor" to be a weapon. It's NOT.
There is a LOT about the cloning/cyborg/purpose/etc...that really isnt clear.

If all you want to hear is...Is is wrong to clone your best freind for the express purpose of killing another friend of yours...is that wrong?

Yeah sure THAT is wrong...very wrong...but again thats NOT what happened.

> So it's not a personal attack and really, it's less an observation than it is a fact.

The personal attack is that you did not attack the topic of the argument...but the poster (me). So YES that is a personal attack, since you were directing your comments to ME and not my words.

I was directing the comments towards your tactics, which have gone in the usual pattern. Do what Mandy did and disavow the issue, would be my suggestion ;\)
