wow, starting with Lemur866, pretty much everybody has either not answered or (seemingly) willfully misunderstood Tomcat’s question.
If God is the one who designed us as creatures and as spiritual beings, that means he assigned each of us a soul, and created the proper and true method for creating new people. He’s somehow the one who steers the one sperm to the one egg to create a host for the soul he has made.
But cloning is a process humanity has forced onto life. Humans are (soon) going to be wrenching life into existence through means other than the tried and true sperm-meets-egg. So, if this is not how humans are intended to be created, and God didn’t have souls ready, then a human should be born soulless.
Now, if a human clone is created in a lab, and the clone grows up and is no different from the rest of us, and is capable of moral judgement etc, then the above theory is false. God doesn’t work that way.
Would this disprove God? No, it would mean that the model of God is wrong. Or, that God had the knowlegde that somehow humans would start cloning in the future, and therefore designed from the very begining some kind of clone soul instigator.
But if the latter were true, then much of the current religious objection to cloning (Cloning is against the will of God, we’re trying to do what is God’s job) is flat out wrong.
Yes, Tomcat, if cloning were successful, then many ideas of God would be proven wrong. In fact, as phouka pointed out, in vitro fertilization invalidates your given model of God placing a soul into the womb at conception.
