I'm afraid that ship has sailed. Of the multiple claimants to be the authentic foreskin of Our Lord, the last known survivor was stolen in 1983.

What if it was stolen by scientists for this very purpose? For all we know, Clone Jesus could already be among us.

Or so they claim. And it is telling that one of the first succesfully cloned mammals was a sheep.

As religious doctrine clearly states, the Lord is not a sheep, he is a shepherd.

No, you can't clone minds personalities or souls.

Yeah, I'm not sure about anybody else but I think cloning is just creepy. I understand that our cells do that for asexual reproduction but that happens in nature. I just think it's weird for man to play God, to a certain extent, and make a creature from another one in an unnatural way. And plus, I believe that animals have souls, not spirits like humans, and to just clone something like that and not letting nature do it's job then that animal has no soul. Anything could inhabit that vessel body once it's made.

But I'm just speculating.

To make it more general: people will try and clone famous people from the past. Jesus is just one of the more controversial ones to do it too.

No longer satisfied with metaphorical cannibalism? It would deepen the religious experience to a level most people try to avoid for good reasons.

Seems reasonable. A more logical view is that the mind is a function of the brain, and copying the brain copies the mind. As cloning does not actually copy the brain, it would not copy the mind. Souls don't enter into this, as they don't exist.

Just do not give the clone a brain. After all - what is more deplorable - feasting on the flesh of a cute lamb, stolen from its mother while it was playing in the fields, or feeding on a mindless husk of meat grown specially for that purpose ?

True. It's all about the bio-engineers and the flesh growing in artificial wombs, soon to be a legion of baby Jesuses.

First, you have to find Jesus's remains.
Crimes committed by Muslims will be proof of a pan-Islamic plot and Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand, crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of mentally ill lone wolves who do not represent their professed belief system at all.
The probability of someone secretly participating in homosexual acts is directly proportional to the frequency and loudness of their publicly professed disapproval and/or disgust for homosexuality.
If Donald Trump accuses an individual of malfeasance without evidence, it is almost a certainty either he or someone associated with him has in fact committed that very same malfeasance to a greater degree.

We want to bring the consumer an experience like no other. An experience so vividly real that it itself is an illusion of reality within reality.
