> Your initial statement was that "putting Lilith's soul into a clone of Adam would be a BAD idea (forbidden joining of Adam and Lilith, anyone?)". I was just pointing out that the "forbidden joining" was different and thus bringing it up in this context does not show that putting Lilith's soul into a clone of Adam is necessarily a bad idea. Yes there are different combinations of components that can be used to initiate an impact, but Lilith's soul in a clone of Adam's body is never shown as one of them.
I agree that the "forbidden joining of Adam and Lilith" intended by Gendo was different, which made that a bad reference on my part. However, Lilith's soul in a clone of Adam is still a combination of Lilith and Adam (although Adam's clone may differ in this respect from the actual Adam), and since it is agreed that impacts can occur with less than the full combination of all elements, it is not an abstract assumption to state that some risk may exist which would require safeguards or other countermeasures.
However, you are right that there is never seen to be any risk in the series, and it would involve extra theories, so according to the razor I will drop that particular objection.
All other objections stand.
