I strongly suspect the only arguments are along the lines of the purity of the
morphology of a species in God's eyes, which I suspect is question begging from
the evolutionist point of view, or a social engineering question of the
unforeseeable consequences of such a race (a la SF), which is no real argument
at all, since EVERYTHING we do has unforeseaable consequences.
BTW: would it be a Chuman, or a Himp? Homo Pan?
