What if we clone a human? Will the clone have it's own
soul? Does soul exist?

Simply put, a soul can be described as the CONFLICT of

soul is a matter of faith, not fact.
Besides, scientific method cannot prove that a hypothesis or theory is true,
only that it is false, or that it may be 'not false' at this point of time,
using that experiment.

I totally disagree. Identical twins are GENETICALLY identical, and are
therefore the same as a clone. How do you derive the data that clone would
not be psychologically different, as are twins?
How does a clone contain all memories of the original animals experience?
this may only be possible if memories are encoded genetically....memories go
