Thank goodness, twins are people too

New research into identical twins (also known as "clones") has determined that they see themselves as two individuals, not one soul in two bodies. This suggests strongly that when human clones (also known as "identical twins who happen to be born years apart") are born, they are unlikely to see themselves as the same person.

    Hitler's clone: "You're not my father! You're not me! I don't want to take over the world and kill all the Jews, that's so 1930s! I want to be a wildlife photographer and save the baby fur seals!"

As PZ Meyers says, there are far too many people who worry about this sort of nonsense. Maybe this will put some minds at rest.
