The Huffington Post reports a strange interview with a dentist that says he wants to bring a dead Beatle back to life.
And no, he doesn’t mean an insect.
He is referring to deceased Beatle John Lennon.
Dr. Michael Zuk bought a decayed tooth of John Lennon at an auction for $31,000.
Zuk told the Huffington Post that he is serious about extracting DNA from the old tooth and bringing Lennon’s clone to life. He is waiting to work with scientists and seeks a film crew willing to help him make the event a documentary.
Unfortunately, a bioethicist from the University of Toronto told the Huffington Post she doesn’t share Zuk’s enthusiasm. She said its confidential information and could include moral and consensual concerns.
Lennon’s family members have not spoken out publicly about Zuk’s plans. With modern advances in genetics and cloning, it could be possible that science could one day make a clone from even the smallest microscopic DNA sample.
Lennon was murdered in 1980 by Mark David Chapman, a deranged fan.
