How cloning is or is not completely unethical, wrong, etc.

Or discuss whether or not humans are bad by nature or simply born into a corrupt world.

I like the second idea johan851 brought up, you can bring in previous attemps to answer the question, and maybe form your own theory.

Sorta tied in with religion you could do something on fate/free will I suppose. However, johan851's bad by nature/corrupt world ought to give you enough to fill those last few pages

yeah I got 3 pages remaining, and the fate/free will idea or more correctly determinism versus free will has already been used before

the idea that the senses can't be trusted (plato I believe)and that our senses are what dictates what is real what is not.

You could discuss academic honesty and ethics.

Uh, we had to do a paper on civil disobedience and our stance on it, etc. (Relating it to the play "Antigone"). I guess you could also write about the idea of perfection/utopia and reference Sir Thomas More's Utopia and so on. Honestly, please summarize what you have because there are SO many ideas out there and philsophies.

Have you thought about existance. I have heard a few times about how existance isnt possible without conciousness, so the universe may be aware of itself (might tie in with space though)

Theres a good book called the holographic universe about how the brain functions like a hologram, interesting theory.
