0/2=0

0+0=0
I tend to fight any opinion, regardless of my agreement or disagreement to it. I believe to only fight opinions that you disagree with is a sign of a weak and rigid state of mind.

Define soul?

The individual spark of life in every living thing.

That's pretty vague. By sparks of life, do you mean electrical impulses within the nervous tissue? I'd wonder how you would apply that to single-celled organisms, as they do not have such tissues. An amoeba can create electro-chemical gradients though, so maybe ion channels would qualify as souls.

So, to answer your question, identical twins would have the same biological machinery, owing to their identical DNA. Each one has their own, so they do not share it, but the mechanisms themselves are identical copies.

They can't with that definition. They'd literally be the same person. If one was at the market and one was at home, then one person would be both at home and at the market. We end up with a contradiction.
