And yet we know she has to have one, since Unit 01 does.
By "core" do you mean s2 organ?
Are S2 organ and core the same thing?

If this theory has any validity, then that would mean that the core placed in the upper half of Lilith
Therefore...we can reduce the number of candidates regarding his DNA donor (regardless of what that might entail for the time being) down to:
An Unknown Person
Any thoughts on this?

We can also probably exclude the possibility of Kaworu's body being created after Second Impact. (You don't seem to have a problem with this, but others do.) To claim otherwise is a severe violation of the law of conversation of information in fiction. (See here and elsewhere in that thread.) As a corollary, it also requires fabricating a redundant event into the story.
Furthermore, if the donor were a casualty of the experiment, don't you think this would be reflected in the 21' flashback somewhere, somehow?
I tend to think the donor was always Gendo.
I get the impression that it's not meant to indicate that Gendo is his father so much that he thinks he's close to Shinji. In Japanese, it's common for a friend to call his friend's father "otou-san". It's a level of familiarity, kind of like honorifics and calling an older friend "onee-san" or "onii-san" (honorifics may vary). Whether that familiarity actually exists between Gendo and Kaworu is debatable, which could mean that Kaworu was being tongue-and-cheek about it (implying a familiarity when clearly none exists).

Note that Misato seems the most alarmed about Kaworu's flawless sync test with Unit 02, and appears the most determined to figure out what isn't right about this boy; the possibility of Kaworu appearing alien yet familiar - and certainly dangerous - to Misato doesn't seem out of the league of possibility here, given that she seems rather unnerved by the Fifth Child far more than a single sync test would conceivably arouse suspicion.
Just out of curiosity have there been any like video games or extended merchandise that have like hinted or given an answer?
