Actually the biggest question is not about human soul faculties we know there is no way to replicate but how far AI can pretend to behave like an animal.

Or is growing their bodies and replicating is a "function" of a material soul found in animals and plants.

Here's a good way to think about AI.  If you ever have been on a long road trip, likely you've had times when your mind drifts off and maybe you start thinking about the shop you want to build.  It will have a Monarch lathe, milling machine, plasma table, laser table, CNC milling machine and powered by 480V's.  And of course an overhead gantry crane will be needed and some welding rigs.  And about the time you calculate the kVA of the transformer you'll need, you realize that you've been driving for the past 20 minutes and don't remember a darn thing about the driving during this time.

Have you been following any cars?  Did a truck pass you?  Did you change lanes?  What have you passed?  Zero recollection.  Null.  Nothing.  Your soul shifted its attention to your future shop plans and thus all the higher order spiritual functionality was removed from your driving.

What has happened is that an AI, which is your brain and 100% of the material world has been driving the car.  And since it is only open and closed synapses it has no perception, intentionality, purposefulness, or opinion.  It just followed a neural net pattern that had previously been created in the brain by your soul through 100s of hours of previous driving.  THAT is what AI is and does. 

And based on that observation, it should aid in determining what are the limits of AI.
"But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:18)."

"All sorrow leads to the foot of the Cross.  Weep for your sins."

"Although He should kill me, I will trust in Him"

Yet you drive the same route again and all seems to be familiar. Other way to achieve the same state is to get drunk by the way.
