lol Nice, I'd like to see those signs. Well i've said this in another post but I think pretty soon it will be in our grasp. I'd apt to get wings, bats that can't fly are kinda pitiful really  ':dead:' . Meh, anyhows, ghr gold (i think thats its name), some drug I heard about on z103.5 during an interview stimulates the growth hormone to reduce and reverse the effects of aging. I don't know if this is true or if it works, but hell they made it sound good! It makes you think, wow immortality is in our reach, lets take things like this, the next step. Hell if we can look twenty years younger in some cases, why not be anthro etc.? I mean, like I said I beleive there was a man whom got a cat tail? I don't quite recall. But we can allready replace peoples skin when they are terribley burned, implant hair, recreate noses, etc etc, so why not get some wolf ears etc? Of course, thing like this would be more difficult, you'd have to reroute ones entire hearing system thingy, yea. lol. Well its there, its reachable, as long as there are people who want this to exist, it will. Hell, i've been thinking on entering this sorta hting for my career, perhaps I will, get us all soem tails eh? lol

i would jump at hte chance to be a dragon. i would definetly go full dragon. their power and sheer might in the world is unrivaled. being an anthro would limit that power. but one point. if we (all furres) became our fursona, surely people would hunt us, as we would be rare and new. i wouldn't like ot be hunted but dragons are elusive so....maybe i won't get caught.!

If I were to become an anthro, I'd probably choose my secondary fursona for that: the red fox. Now, I wouldn't mind being hunted. I'll equip my "earth" with one of these (in effect, turning a den into a "pillbox"):

lol. Nice.  '<img'>  Ye, but technolcly, still originating from humans, and having the same intelligance, would be really hard for hunting. and people would be uncertain with the government if such was allowed. lol. And there would be lots of contraversy with anthro/ human breeding. O.o And all that other junk. Meh, still worth it.  ':cool:'

ol.

And there would be lots of contraversy with anthro/ human breeding. O.o And all that other junk. Meh, still worth it.

That goes to how these anthros are made. If you were to take human embryos, such as all the left-overs they have on ice from in-vitro's, and do some genetic mods to create animal features and fur, what you'd have are just cosmetic differences. Basically, a new, artificial race. In that case, acceptance wouldn't be difficult. As for breeding in this case, I'd expect the anthro features to breed out pretty quick.

As for the other possibility, re-engineering animal genomes to produce intelligence, to create a whole new species, here, it becomes a bit more difficult. To this day, you still have these so-called "scientists" who go out of their way to deny the existance of non-human animal intelligence. I pulled this off a web site about red foxes the other day:

Quote

    Q: Why help your parents raise their offspring, surely it is better for you (genetically speaking) to move away and have your own?

    A: Intuitively this does seem like the best option - leave the family home, produce your own offspring, thus ensuring that your genes make it to the next generation. Indeed, Evolutionary Theory states that individuals of a species that are most physically and behaviourally "fit" for their environment will leave more offspring than less fit individuals. However, if you think about it, by helping your parents raise their subsequent broods (i.e. your brothers and sisters) you are getting some of your genes into the next generation. You have half your mother's and half of your father's genes, and so too will each of your younger brothers and sisters. Therefore, you are as closely related to your full siblings as you are to your own offspring. Consequently, by sticking around and helping with the maternal and paternal chores, you are increasing the survival rate of your younger brothers and sisters and thereby nursing your own genes into subsequent generations. Okay, so you're not strictly getting your own genetic material into the next generation, but the genetic line -- of which you are a part -- is being maintained with your assistance.


This is "socio-biology", a pseudoscience invented by a dip-5|-|17 named Edward O. Wilson, to deny animal intelligence. So, rather than simply accept the obvious: foxes love and cherish their mates and offspring: that the companionship is more important than the reduction of the demand for food in the territory.  They have them "counting chromosomes" (Does a fox know what a chromosome is?!  ) to avoid what's manifestly obvious ( and running right into the greatest BS detector of all time: Occam's Razor).

If your "anthros" were still mostly the animals of their origin, would they be as accepted? Here, one really needs to wonder.

Whoa, hey.  Using human embryos to create anthros is a BAD idea.  You already have no choice what you look like when you're born; how much worse would it be for someone to be stuck as a half-animal all their lives.  Leave the operations to the willing victims, thank you.

Remember, if a thing can be done, it will be done: sooner or later. Indeed, they have the perfect excuse to use those frozen embryos: ownership is often unclear, the original parents decided they didn't want any more kids, etc. So now they're on ice, doing nothing, and ultimately may just be thawed out and thrown away. Some would argue, and not without merit, that living as a "half-animal" beats hell out of not living at all. How would it be "much worse" (than what?) if that's the way they've always been?

Does that mean that it should be done? Probably not.

Then, again, they shouldn't be fuxxoring with, let's say, fox genes in order to create an intelligent vulpine anthro. Would you like to explain to it why it probably won't be there to see its 25th birthday?   ':dead:'

Indeed, the way they're already screwing around with genes, the possibility that the first RL Furry will be an accident is quite high.

maybe one day in the futcher look how technology has avolved in the passed 10 years so whos to say what they can do in say the next 10 to 20 years my guess would be, BRING IT ON. '<img'>
Its better to regret somthing you have done then to go on regreting not doing it. The foxes code.

That one's easy; they already have an idea how to alter DNA to stretch one's lifespan; the only drawback is that the proportions would remain intact, so a wolf, for instance, would take a mere seven years to grow up. '<img'>

YES ABSOLUTELY! ':cool:'

But only on the condition that it would have already become fairly common place. I don't want to be the only half-human walking around.

I think it could be done, but I'll be dead by them time it can.

Heres problem I noticed. Many animals kill when provoked. Meaning that the number of murders in the world could increase greatly once anthro surgery becomes a reality (unless the surgery is only cosmetic).
