← How would you feel about a half-human half-chimp hybrid?

In ancient Greece it was forbidden to perform anatomy on dead bodies because they were considered sacred.
We should not make the same mistake.
Science must advance.
The ones that must save the world are not religious zealots .They are the scientists.
I see no reason why we become immoral once we start manipulating DNA to produce hybrids etc.
I don't see in the Bible god forbidding such things since god never referred to DNA.He was probably "hiding" the fact.The ones that say that god doesn't like these things are religious people who apparently believe to have some sort of direct link with the god.
