But Assassin's Creed tells us that we have genetic memory! That our entire lives' memory is encoded in our DNA and passed down through the generations! And with a fancy machine, our decendents can relive our memories, and those of our parents and grandparents too! Surely a genetic clone would have all those memories too???
Oh wait, it's a game, and not real at all.
This is the issue most people have with cloning - it's copying the physical form, not the memories, and not the personality. In order for "favourite dog v2.0" to be the same as "favourite dog v1.0", you would need to raise that dog in exactly the same way, responding in exactly the same way to its behaviour as you did with the original, AND it would need to learn from your behaviour and respond to it in exactly the same way as the original did. Too many variables.
Once we can download and upload the contents of the brain -- reliably -- then this may be a possibility. But we're so far away from that, that when we do invent this tech, it'll be powered by those long-awaited commercial fusion reactors that are only 20 years away.
