"The testing has been blocked by the parents of the baby, according to Clonaid, the company that made the claim Dec. 27. Clonaid was founded by the Raelian religious sect that believes space aliens created life on Earth, and acknowledges that outside DNA testing would be needed to make their claim credible. "

As soon as this story came out I kept expecting that the parents of the "clone" would refuse DNA testing without explanation. No surprise here :rolleyes:

*tries to look surprised*

wackos, every one. i don't know what the point of this little stunt was, except perhaps to get themselves in the limelight for a while... maybe they're crazy enough to think the world would believe it without tests. all in all, of course, it discredits them to no end...
