For crying out loud, have these people not seen Jurassic Park?

Well... Jurassic Park is fiction.

Secondly, unlike dinosaurs, woolly mammoths have only been extinct for 4,000 years. You know what was happening 4,000 years ago? The ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, and China were already in existence.

Bringing back dinosaurs may not be a good idea, but bringing back woolly mammoths may not hurt.

Probably a market for a wooly mammoth burger -- free range of course.

My 'best case scenario' for cloning dinosaurs is influenced by the Flintstones:

Brontosaurus burger was Fred's go to, right? In the U.S. it would only be a matter of time before the Bronto Challenge" was introduced...
