    I watched a video by Michio Kaku on this, cool stuff.
    He said of one day possibly being able to bring back a neanderthal

    If we can genetically alter said embryos to live in the climates of other planets then I see a possibility, I only find it pointless for animals that have long been extinct.

    To study it, perhaps?

    I don't see it pointless, because pretty sure they aren't going to release them into the environment and grow up their species, but will probably just be researched in labs.

    No there's still some point. It allows scientists to better understand the fundamentals of how that animal lived. It's not really bringing them "back to life", it's more like altering the genes of its descendants to give birth to its ancestors. This allows us to protect biodiversity and genetic diversity. Not only does this undo the harms that humans have done, it also restore ecosystems as certain animals that were extinct contribute a major role in how the ecosystem functions. Once then, we will be able to prevent any further extinctions.
    Good thing I didn't wear any jimmies, so this didn't really bother me.
    Good go cool guys. I've got other things to do now

    Quite an interesting subject if you ask me. Imagine the research possibilities if indeed this is deemed possible. With living, breathing subjects, we would be able to learn far more about ancient Earth then we can today.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.
