Bill asked: "Suppose I accept as fact your and Glenn's claim that
there is no rational basis for claiming that such beings do not have
the image of God. That does not justify claiming that
they do have the image of God, only that the proposition is undecided."

I can buy that. What I cannot buy is the claim that, since it is
undecided, such creatures do NOT possess the IOG. That leads to the
obvious claim that it would be perfectly OK to eat them. Or put them
in a zoo.

Another thought experiment. Using time extraction technology, which I
have not yet invented due to lack of time, we extract a small
Neanderthal infant from -- say 350K years ago. How would we regard
him? Suppose further that he is raised as a normal human and winds up
holding down a good job, performing as a citizen, etc. Does he then
possess the IOG?
