What do you think of the whole George Church Neanderthal Cloning Media Debacle? Take our poll

It’s been a crazy week with a story about Harvard Geneticist George Church supposedly in his new book and in a magazine interview promoting the idea of cloning Neanderthals and possibly people too. I blogged about it here. The German Magazine Der Spiegel did interviewed Church (English version of interview is here) and many things discussed are in Church’s book.

Scientists interacting with the media have to be careful in what they say and certainly if one writes a book then it’s out there for people to discuss, but what do you think of this particular somewhat wild situation?

Take our blog poll below and make comments if you want to be more specific.
