From a religious standpoint it is wrong. Akin to playing God in my opinon, but from a political, social, medical, and economic standpoint it has some strong value. What do you think? Should we allow human cloning? Why or Why not?

As a Buddhist, I'd say it's wrong from an ethical standpoint. Monkeying with nature is wrong, stupid and reckless. Nature is as it is, and we're part of it. If we start trying to replace it and "improve" it, we can only be causing problems. Science goes too far nowadays, and money, not ethics, are what controls and funds it. Basically, science is following the same principles as Hitler held so dear - creating a master race, eugenics, playing with nature, except that society seems to forget that it was the principals which drove these experiments which were monstrous, not just the killing and maiming of human experimental subjects. We conveniently forget that bit nowadays, and only concentrate on the killing.

You are a little too late in your quest. The US government has not only been dehumanizing true humans as of the 1940s with nanotechnological implants (rendering them without their own wills), but also makes doppelgangers - copies - of true humans. No, this is not science fiction! It is possible! I know that like Asimov's Quinn, I, too, will appear out-of-syn while the Bradleys attempt to take over the world. Check out the article Human or Robot? - http://www.geocities.com/ulafrique/nanotechnology.html

We would try it to diversify any species and to know the barriers of species reproduction.

i think its something that we need to monitor. i personaly think it could be a big break through, but there's also the ethical view on it. it just depends on how people plan to use it.
