Harvard professor seeks mother for cloned Neanderthal baby.

George Church, a genetics professor at Harvard Medical School, believes he can bring back Neanderthals after more than 33,000 years – and is looking for an ‘adventurous’ woman to act as a surrogate human mother for the project.

A leading geneticist is on the hunt for an ‘adventurous woman’ to help turn back the hands of time – and give birth to a Neanderthal baby.

George Church, a genetics professor at Harvard Medical School, believes he can bring back the extinct ancestor of modern man after more than 33,000 years.

Contrary to popular belief, Neanderthals were in fact a highly intelligent race and Prof Church believes they could be recreated through modern medicine.

He told German magazine, Der Spiegel: ‘I have already managed to attract enough DNA from fossil bones to reconstruct the DNA of the human species largely extinct. Now I need an adventurous female human.

‘It depends on a lot of things, but I think it can be done. The reason I would consider it a possibility is that a bunch of technologies are developing faster than ever before.

‘In particular, reading and writing DNA is now about a million times faster than seven or eight years ago.

‘Another technology that the de-extinction of a Neanderthal would require is human cloning.

‘We can clone all kinds of mammals, so it’s very likely that we could clone a human. Why shouldn’t we be able to do so?”

Prof Church, 58, is a pioneer in synthetic biology, which aims is to create synthetic DNA and organisms in the laboratory.

During the 1980s, he helped initiate the Human Genome Project that created a map of the human genome.

He admits his project may have shades of Frankenstein about it, but he believes recreating Neanderthals would benefit mankind.

Prof Church added: ‘Neanderthals might think differently than we do. We know that they had a larger cranial size. They could even be more intelligent than us.

‘When the time comes to deal with an epidemic or getting off the planet or whatever, it’s conceivable that their way of thinking could be beneficial.

    Well as Christians we do not believe in Neanderthal, on the program Answers to Genesis, Neanderthal man was an early European and they developed the condition called “rickets” becasue of poor nutrtion, it wasn’t them slowly coming up from all fours, but ther spine being effected by the rickets making then hunce over, that is why evolutionist “seized” on it to “prove” evolution. Or do you have another motive for posting the article? One I might not understand?

      Well, I do find it interesting how they now claim Neanderthal man as advanced. Shows that God created man in His image and the entire theory of the evolution of man as a hoax. Evolution has us evolving – this seems to indicated that this is in fact not the case.
