There is a multinational science company called Replacement Technologies, run by the sinister, profit-driven Michael Drucker, that has developed technology to clone animals and human organs. Despite the fact that the Supreme Court has ruled it illegal, they also clone entire human beings. In fact, the High Court has ruled that any clones discovered must be destroyed. Replacement Technologies is the world leader in cloning with companies like Repet, Nu-Salmon and Nu-Organ, each geared toward hiding the parent company’s dark secret. They have made a terrible mistake: they are cloning humans, and, in one circumstance, they cloned the wrong human, Adam Gibson. So when the real Adam sees another himself living his real life, the real and unreal bad guys decide to really kill the real him. Adam must escape and find out the truth from the creator of the clones, Michael Drucker. Adam knows for sure he couldn’t have been cloned, but isn’t ready for what he’s about to hear.
Advances in cloning technology and successful cloning experiments in animals raised concerns about the possibility of human cloning in recent years. Despite many objections, this is not only a possibility but also a reality. Human cloning is a scientific revolution. However, it also introduces the potential for physical and psychosocial harm to human beings.
In The 6th Day, Adam Gibson is a family man whose life is shattered when he is cloned illegally by Replacement Technologies, a cloning conglomerate. Gibson sets out to find out why he was cloned, but the firm’s bad guys are after Adam to kill him before he reveals their secret. The real Adam teams up with his (cloned) impostor to fight against Replacement Technologies to get his identity back.
What does the future hold for us? Genetic engineering could eliminate world hunger, cure disease, and remove the threat of extinction and stock the medical labs with cloned organs for transplant. It could also open the Pandora’s box of mankind’s most elusive desire – immortality. Set in the not too distant future, a third day law has been passed to ban human cloning. However, cloning animals and human organs is legal.
