End is nigh! Scientists create ZOMBIE DOGS!

Quote:
Boffins create zombie dogs
By Nick Buchan of NEWS.com.au
June 27, 2005

US scientists have succeeded in reviving the dogs after three hours of clinical death, paving the way for trials on humans within years.

Pittsburgh's Safar Centre for Resuscitation Research has developed a technique in which subject's veins are drained of blood and filled with an ice-cold salt solution.

The animals are considered scientifically dead, as they stop breathing and have no heartbeat or brain activity.

But three hours later, their blood is replaced and the zombie dogs are brought back to life with an electric shock.

Plans to test the technique on humans should be realised within a year, according to the Safar Centre.

However rather than sending people to sleep for years, then bringing them back to life to benefit from medical advances, the boffins would be happy to keep people in this state for just a few hours,

But even this should be enough to save lives such as battlefield casualties and victims of stabbings or gunshot wounds, who have suffered huge blood loss.

During the procedure blood is replaced with saline solution at a few degrees above zero. The dogs' body temperature drops to only 7C, compared with the usual 37C, inducing a state of hypothermia before death.

Although the animals are clinically dead, their tissues and organs are perfectly preserved.

Damaged blood vessels and tissues can then be repaired via surgery. The dogs are brought back to life by returning the blood to their bodies,giving them 100 per cent oxygen and applying electric shocks to restart their hearts.

Tests show they are perfectly normal, with no brain damage.

"The results are stunning. I think in 10 years we will be able to prevent death in a certain segment of those using this technology," said one US battlefield doctor.

Once these break free and start spreading a disease they really don't have, but I just assume they do so I can imagine a Resident Evil-like world, everyone will be turned into a zombie!

No, thank you. If I died, then leave me alone. All what I am asking is that a lot of people prays for me when I am died, so that it helps me go to heaven.

at the risk of ruining this thread:

wouldnt the life and death of one of gods creations be controlled by the power of god? doesnt he decide when we live and when we die?
so how is it that science can bring dead dogs back to life?

Well, I just knew that today and I don't even know what they do and stuff like that, so it is kind of hard telling why, because it is too early.

As far as I know, if he died, then after few months, they did this, would he live again, or he will die for the rest of his life? See, there are still some questions that need an answer. For an example, I for one have asked a lot of questions about Islam religion, until I really believed in it and then I start praying and do what God told me to do.

Fun? Fun would be actualy being in your own real life zombie thriller. Life is so boring, that would be an awesome adventure, I'd probably end up dying but oh well!
