Right, once again lol I have noticed another scientific blooper in Futurama other than my Global Warming noticed *mistake* lol so here is what I found out, with sound clips to give evidence....:

Ok, you know in Mars University, when Fry asks the Professor if making Gunther smart was a result of Genetic Engineering, then the Proffessor replies that the theory of Genetic engineering was "Preposterous science fiction mumbo jumbo" in this quote evidence:
 http://www.gotfuturama.com/Multimedia/EpisodeSounds/1ACV11/06.mp3

So you would expect that genetic engineering never excelled that much/or at all in the 1000 years between 2000 and 3000, right?

Well then in only 7 episodes later (not that long, so its not a big difference in time, for this mistake to occur) in Why Must I Be a Crustacean In Love when Fry, Amy and Leela are in the Womans steam room then Amy says "Look what life was like before genetic engineering" and Leela replies "Those poor 20th century women" in this evidence quote:
 http://www.gotfuturama.com/Multimedia/EpisodeSounds/2ACV05/01.mp3

So this now describes Genetic Engineering as that it happened and it must have been quite effective to alter the genitalia lol so why does the Proffesor say that Genetic Engineering was scientific mumbo jumbo (didn't excell, happen) while both Amy and Leela say it is true???????

LOL another scientific blooper I've discovered I must have a nack for this lol    laff

Brain: It appears we are in the presence of the fabled one, but without his Scooty-Puff Jr he cannot escape ha ha ha, huh!

Brain: A quantum-interphase bomb, are you insane in the membrane!?

Fry: You got it poindexter!

Sounds like there is only one thing genetic engineering is good for commercially, sort of like the internet.

The Professor is senile. He would say that.

OR He said that to cover up the fact that he was creating a clone of himself without a permit.

It could be that the way genetic engineering went allowed interference with the human physical form but was not yet advanced enough to create uber-intelligent monkeys.

The 'scientific mumbo jumbo' bit might indicate that maybe genetic engineering had not advanced as much by the year 3000 as was predicted in Fry's time.

Joke.

Dave B's head.

---
On a "taking this seriosuly" note, I was under the impression that Amy and Leela made up the genetic engineering bit so that Fry would be embarassed enough to leave them alone.  As for Farnsworth's earlier comment, he's probably senile enough to have forgotten that genetic engineering was possible and therefore went about his experiment in a way that actually is impossible.

maybe gentic engineering only had tht one use and so by the proffesors standards he deemed it mumbo-jumbo. Otherwise I agree with nerd-o-rama but good spot btw.

I think you're mistaking "blooper" for joke. While it's true Futurama have featured some very clever jokes and quite obscure references to science, one must remember that Futurama is a sitcom first and foremost. Continuity, realism and science are nice elements, but will never be allowed to stand in the way of a good joke. Now, noone is more inclined to come up with anti-nits/explain mistakes within the context of the show than me, but sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

Actually, I agree with futz and dawoodz; genetic engineering only proved useful for cosmetic surgery. By scientific standard it didn't amount to much more than homeopathy (ie. baloney). As a (mad) scientist Farnsworth would deride it.

[Zapp]Please, you're giving yourself too much credit.[/Zapp] A scientific mistake would be something like two positive poles attracting or being able to breathe in vacuum. This is merely a difference of opinion between three very different characters.

Genetic engineering is "preposterous science fiction mumbo jumbo", eh?

Well, as they say in Thermostadt:  (The Honking)

"Mumbo, perhaps.  Jumbo, perhaps not!"
