Would a Cloned Human Have a Soul?
The stem cell debate has changed the way we talk about human cloning. The implications on a proposed ban on cloning go from the political to the theological. But from Washington to our discussion boards, it comes down to Beliefnet member Calico's question--"Does a clone have a soul?" What do you think? Would a cloned human have one?
Every week, stock-car driver Jeff Gordon risks death at 200 mph. Universally respected as one of the best in his sport, Gordon prays every night before he goes to bed. And he keeps Bible verses taped to his steering wheel for inspiration. Gordon talks to Beliefnet about his dangerous sport, the death of rival Dale Earnhardt, and the faith that he owes, in many ways, to racing.
Church Muzzles "Danny Boy"
The Catholic diocese of Rhode Island recently reiterated the church's ban on secular songs during funeral Masses. Member tawonda agrees with this policy, saying, "A church service is not a theatrical production for the benefit of those assembled...it's not about us; it is about God." Member ariadne1 feels the situation takes "narrow dogmatism and mean spiritedness to all new heights." What do you think about nonreligious songs being used in church services?

Oracles on Relationships
Ancient systems of intuitive decision-making like Tarot cards and the Chinese I-ching are becoming more and more popular. For thousands of years, these systems have been used to help people make better decisions around questions and issues that logic can't handle. John Gray, author of "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus," explains how these divination tools can help us think outside the box and view situations and relationships with greater clarity and wisdom.
