The embrace of cloning and related reproductive techniques to ensure fertility and population growth by the nations of the Middle East set this region on the collision course with the West, resulting in the long-drawn-out Fertility Wars of the late twenty-first century. This essay traces the origin of the surprising renaissance of fertility cults in the context of resistance to the UN attempts to restrict global population and outlaw cloning. The essay specifically focuses on the theological implications of fertility and the change in the attitude of the three monotheistic religions in the Middle East toward bio-technology.
