    Is it true that scientist has been able to create a clone that can reason as a normal man can

    Well, if you mean 'are we able to clone a human being' then yes; we just haven't. But don't treat this clone as anything less than you would a regular person because what it really boils down to is that a clone is essentially a differently aged twin.

    All identical twins have the same DNA, which is what makes them identical twins. So in retrospect, even though they have the same DNA they're still two completely different people (though there's some speculation as to just how much is nature or nurture).

    A clone would be a normal man/woman, and therefor be able to reason as we could. Yay science!

    Your question is flawed. A clone is a genetically identical copy of another organism. It has nothing to do with reasoning or intelligence. If you clone a sheep, as they did in the 1900's, the intellegence of the sheep is equivalent to the sheep from with it was cloned from. If you clone a human, the intellegence of that human will be indentical to the human from whom he/she was cloned from.

    However, if you are referring to biotechnology and genetic engineering then yes. Remember, down's syndrome is caused by a mutation in a single human gene. Intellegence isn't unique. We arn't able yet to alter our DNA, but we are making progress. Damaged or Cancerous cells can be replaced with healthy cells  and through viruses, we are able to manipulate any DNA because DNA is universal which is why the DNA from one organism can be transported to another
