ET's can clone quite easily but they cannot create a soul. At best they can trap souls and implant one in a souless body.

i simply ask the question...why???? these people spending billions of dollars to fund research on human cloning are the same ones (or close relatives) whining about over population. support a stable population and human cloning? it doesnt make sence.

if you really want to spend millions of dollars funding a PROBLEM then go ahead, but it could be used for more important things like, oh, i dunno, maybe discovering new techniques for creating the squishy stuff that covers your headphones.

Lex Luthor cloned himself. He then put his brain in to the clone when his old body was dying of cancer. Why can't I do the same?

Lex Luthor was still the same ol' Lex Luthor after he changed bodies. So, no, I guess. I don't have a soul, only a brain.

We were talking about me getting cancer and having my brain put in to a cloned body. Just like Lex Luthor did.

I ma for cloning seperate body parts etc, but a little more reserved about cloning whole humans.

Let me put it like this I would support cloning a brainless body for spareparts for me but not a living person to take the parts from.

Cloning for childless couples I would agree too but for, say, experiments no.

Its deffenetly something that should be approched with caution.

You don't have to worry about a clone having a soul. IT WILL. Either an existing soul will do a "walk-in", or God will provide a soul.
This isn't Frankenstein's monster. This would be cloning.
However, humans are NOT ready to do reproductive cloning. Their ethics have no way of handling such a situation. Reproductive cloning will never be widely used on Earth, because of the overpopulation problem. It COULD be used to replace populations if we ever had a WMD war..... like an atomic war.
