How close are we to cloning humans? Is there evidence that humans are becoming more intelligent? How much money is invested each year in AIDS research?

Some guesses, 'cause I don't know the exact answers: (1) not close, and we don't know how far because we don't know if it is possible at all; (2) I don't think so. If anything you'd expect the reverse, since there is no evolutionary pressure (you don't have to be smart to have kids); (3) about 1-2 billion dollars a year in the U.S.
