Just read a really interesting post by Clark Goble at the Mormon D&D board. He presents the appearance of a new species of mutant crayfish that clones itself. They apparently readily produce and thrive.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/05/science/mutant-crayfish-clones-europe.html

Upon reading this it suddenly occurred to me what a tremendous boon this would be to the LDS Church if the scientists at BYU could replicate this same mutancy in a BYU student. Maybe even throw in an extra-obediency gene.

We could then have such steadily increasing Church growth that no one would ever need to fudge the numbers again. Instead, Church PR would do well to downplay the growth till numerical superiority was reached. by the way, this would reduce the cost of the Church missionary program by making it redundant.

It might be good if the BYU scientists chose the experimental candidate based on known entrepreneurial skills.

I think the problem with cloning TBM's is that they are so conformist that they won't have sufficient immunity to new ideas and will therefore be susceptible to the anti virus when it comes and spreads its true history and logic.

TBM clones is redundant. :lol:

The implications here are huge.

As only the females can self-clone, then extending this capability to the TBM community will allow the population of eligible women to explode, which would absolutely necessitate re-introducing polygamy. Hurrah!

And the cloned population would offer no threat to priesthood authority, either, or ask anything of Church leadership that would push it out of its comfort zone, as long as the progenitor is chosen carefully.
