Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

If consciousness doesn't arise from any material combination, what is the Krishna conscious explanation of cloning?

by Laxmimoni dasi

Cloning just produces another body; a soul must still enter that body for there to be conscious life in it. The materials that are being combined are all coming from cells originally created by God.

There's a joke about a scientist who comes to God and says, "Now I can create life by myself. We no longer need God. You are finished." God replies, "please demonstrate." The scientist then begins to pick up some chemicals from the earth, and the Lord stops him, saying, "No! You must supply your own ingredients!"

From what I've read on cloning, it seems that that one sheep has been the only notable "success," whereas others' efforts, especially in the human sphere, haven't been very successful. Ultimately, it's Krishna's will, enacted through His material energy, which places a soul within a body, no matter how the body is created.
