That's a good point, but think about certain animals that go extinct in the future because of humans(poaching ,etc.). There's actually many good things that this can be used for like for example bringing life to other planets.
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.
I won't rustle your jimmies. I'll fucking rip them.
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.
