If you wouldn't, why not?
however who says that the clone will even have a consciousness. maybe he'll be like my physics teacher. stupid, slow, and gaining in smell.
the 6th day was a surprisingly good film and to be honest i didn't really think of the "Your son will be cured but will actually be dead" thing. i was more thinking of "moral" and "ethical" issues (i just thought the big gunz was cool).
and then you've got to wonder what happens to souls when you die. and do animals have souls??? in fact do souls exist? what is with the inner-monologue thing, how does that work? is it because we have a soul that it works???
i think bartender reckons that the soul or consciousness will somehow be transfered when a clone is created but i don't think so. i have no idea what will happen but i know that I would still be Me and that the clone would be amazingly handsome but not actually me.
this is a great question mate, really got me thinking........ which, as you can see, was a roaring success ;)

Did you actually go into the cupboard for that post?
If you did I'm very impressed with your dedication.
And don't worry Mojo, I completely agreed with you from the off. So don't feel too put out :)

haha. im convinced, after reading this thread, that im actually a genius.
That's what *I* kept saying, but nobody got it. Fools.
If there was a machine made that could make an exact copy of you, what you look like, memories and even how you'd react to a given situation, would you walk into it?
No, it wouldn't be "me". It would look like me, and act like me, but *I* would have no control over it.
I can scratch my arm or pick my nose without thinking about it. I could not get the copy of me to do it. I could not get the copy of me to go to the shops, in the same way that I cannot get my brother to go to the shops. I can ask him, but cannot make him.
Hope that clears things up?
