With the cloning technology out there for over 20 years now how do you know whether your neighbor or friend or co worker is not a clone. The government states that human cloning is illegal but we have already cloned cows, sheep and other animals, who says some secret lab in the jungles of Malaysia or some underground bunker in Kazakhstan has not already developed cloned humans. What if they are already among us?

If my neighbor is a clone, why would I care?

Besides, doesn't the process of cloning actually require the person to be "born", so they aren't exactly the same person because they're just a look-alike. If that were the case, they'd essentially be their own, different person, and would also have to be young enough to "be" cloned, which considering both of those things, would essentially make them their own person, probably around my age, so I honestly wouldn't really care.

I think the real question is, if you had a clone would you have sex with him/her?

Well, if they were a clone of me, one would think that they'd look like me. If they were a clone of somebody else, why would that matter to me? It's not like I'm ever gonna meet the "original", and by virtue of growing up in a different environment the clone can still be considered his or her own person.

I think most people wouldn't. Most people aren't gay/lesbian, and if the clone was of the opposite gender then any offspring resulting would be even more bleeped up than those spawned from normal brother-sister incest.

I might let a clone of myself wank me off personally.
