Okay, listen up... This is a really good question. It's been haunting me for years.

 

If person A (it doesn't matter if he's a guy or a girl) got cloned, and person B (who is person A's clone) got born, would it be person A's son/daughter or brother/sister? And why? I have a ton of arguments for both sides, but I want to hear your

opinion.

 

Even though the situation is totally unrealistic, it's still fun to think about it. :P

 

Some extra brain exercise... So let's start.

They'd be related, that's for sure, but what would the relation be like? It must be defined...

they wouldn't be brothers, just clons :D

 

btw, they will be like twins born in different times :S

Are twins brothers even if they grow in different environment? In that point of view they will be like brothers.

Yeah, that is true. But...

 

If you look at it as if a parent is a person who provides genetic material for the creation of another being, then that clone has one DNA provider... And that person it the parent. Not a father, not a mother, but a parent... Single parent. So if you look at it like this, then person A is person B's parent, and person B is his/her child.

mmmm yes, why not?

 

But they won't be like convetional parents, who apport 50% of genetic info and have a previous step of recombination.

 

Btw, for me family is based in social relations between the members, not in genetic relation.

Yeah, it is based on social relations, but here I'm talking about pure genetic relations.

 

The term "parent" also applies to asexual reproduction which some other organisms are capable of doing... So it's a correct term, if you look it at it like this.

Having sex with your clone would be incest.

They would be clones of the original donor. It can't really be son or a daughter, because so far it has never been observed in nature that the son/daughter is born with non-mixed DNA, in other words, the very definition of the word sibling is suggesting two DNA's mixed up in order to produce a third, original DNA, that has never ever been produced before. You could argue that technically a child is non the less a son/daughter of their mother, but if there is no DNA of her own, even in trace, it would be more fair to say she was a host, a surrogate mother... but not a "real mother". That's just my own opinion :)

This is when a person gets born from your DNA, but nobody else's. Like, a copy of you. 1 parent, sort of...

 

SciFi way of thinking. :D

Depends on how you make it : 

- Taking your DNA and implanting it into your own mother's womb? Sibling.

- Asexual cell division? Offspring.

- Totally artificial grow-a-clone-in-a-jar chemistry kit? Possession.

 

But i firmly believe that you two are not actually in any kind of relation.

That clone is actually you,you can't be a sibling or an offspring of yourself.

The guy in the middle is ~2000-2500 years old.  The two girls are his 18 year old clones.  The girls talked him into sex.

I read an article about this, it wasn't science fiction, it says that in 10 million years there will be no men , only women .. statistically speaking women can conceive without sperms but the new born will be a girl thats right now probability of 1 in trillion but in 10 million years those chances will increase until menkind ( or in this case womenkind) will need men no more LOL ..

The only reason for a clone would be for the illegal harvesting of body parts to sell to the Chinese.

They'd simply be clones...it is a different type of relation altogether.  However, a clone could act as either a child or a sibling in a relationship depending on the circumstances (in the same way adoptive children call their guardians parents or the way people call the children of their stepmother/stepfather their brothers and sisters).

 

IE: Parent - Jango Fett, Boba Fett

Brother/Sister: Identical Twins (Technically clones by definition :P)
