I don't know...

I'm probably more religious than most people on this list, but I  
think humans are capable of duplicating anything found in nature,  
including eventually ourselves; the only question is whether with  
computers we've succeeded in doing so for the entire /deterministic/  
portion of our minds.  I'm rather inclined to think we have.
