  More people would clone Einstein than Elvis
Updated 28 January 2003, 16.37
Albert Einstein
More people would rather see Austrian mega-genius Albert Einstein brought back to life than Jesus.

A thousand people were asked who, out of Einstein, Jesus, Elvis Presley and Mozart, they would clone for the good of mankind.

And 22% of them voted for the crazy-haired scientist, compared to 12% for Christ. Some people chose more than one person.

Very few people thought humans should be cloned at all.

Most important scientist

Albert Einstein was probably the most important scientist of the last two hundred years.

He came up with the Theory of Relativity which says nothing can travel faster than light. He influenced the creation of tons of things, from lasers to microwaves.

Recently, a religious cult working with a bio-technology organisation - Clonaid - claimed to have created a number of cloned babies.

But scientists have not yet had proof from the organisation that they are true clones.
