Do you mean you can have exact human external behavior replica without 
consciousness ? or with a different consciousness (than a human) ?

If 1st case then if you can't find any difference between a real human and the 
replica lacking consciousness how could you tell the replica is lacking 
consciouness (or that the human have consciousness) ?

If the second case, I don't understand what could be a different 
consciousness, could you elaborate ?
