They are also playing around with birds, trying to create hybrid dinosaur/birds. These aren't the only scientists trying to play God, there are no doubt tens of thousands of harebrained schemes being incubated in laboratories around the world that could be the greatest of follies if any of them ever succeeded beyond their creator's wildest dreams. Just because human beings that call themselves scientists can scie…
