The biggest task for the religious will be to explain how artificial life forms will be able to have personalities and appear to have individuality. I know that this is a long way off but they need to realize that it WILL happen. The more pressing issue that threatens them is when a human clone is psychologically tested and deemed to be no different than any other human being. Clones will have ‘souls’ which will fly against everything that is said in most religious text. Hopefully, we will be good stewards of this technology. Religious leaders, on the other hand, are going to have to put on their thinking caps and come up with more creative fairy tales to hoodoo the disenchanted beliebers. ( yes, I called them beliebers because they are just as idiotic ).
