Senate Nominee Claims Scientists Have Created Mice With Human Brains

jamie writes "Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell claimed in 2007 that: 'American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains.' Current polls indicate that 39% of Delawareans plan to vote for her." If elected, O'Donnell and staff promise to do the same thing they do every night: try to take over the world.

Entertainment value or sanity..... I mean sh just keeps bringing the comedy nuggets, as she is the anti-masturbation candidate.

If I lust in my heart for my wife, is that a sin? If she masturbates me, is that still a sin? What does the bible have to say about phone sex with my wife?

I'm pretty sure it just talked of the sin of spilling one's seed... so I guess our Lord is fine with women helping themselves out, just not men... and they say men got all the rights.

You're misunderstanding the story of Onan. Spilling his seed upon the ground was a sin because, as the brother of an infertile man, it was his duty to impregnate his brother's wife. Had nothing to do with wanking off (a subject I won't go into here, because all slashdotters are already intimately familiar with the subject.) Remember, these stories come from a time when a culture's prosperity and even survival were closely tied to it's birth rate, hence the prohibitions against the open practice of homosexuality. Sparta, where homosexual practices were condoned, eventually faltered due to declining population. The Hebrews created a culture wherein popping out offspring was the most important thing women could do, to the point that even today Jewish women that are infertile feel like failures in life.

That gives a whole new thought bubble when "THIS IS SPARTA!!!" is heard... :-S

Thank you for making this clarification. All to frequently people take one verse and ignore the context (both Christian and non-Christian).

My memory is fuzzy on the details, but there was something also about "pulling out" (either in this story or a similar one). It came down to that he was cheating her (by not letting her get pregnant), so she dressed like a prostitute, he didn't recognize her, ???, and profit... er baby.

You sheeple (2, Funny)

Profane MuthaFucka (574406) | more than 4 years ago | (#33641044)

You sheeple just don't understand. If you just watch this documentary [] you will see that everything that O'Donnell said about the mice with human intelligence is TRUE!!!!

Obviously. (1)

Well, what do you expect - if you genetically engineer a human with a brain of a mouse, of course she is going to start claiming that the inverse is also possible.

I feel sorry for the humans being forced to breed with mice.

The writer is obviously a Commucrat. Reducing government is the only issue worth talking about. Everything else is a scam until that happens.
