Philosophical zombies support emulation sentience

If you can’t actually prove or disprove that another human individual is sentient, then why would it be possible to prove or disprove the sentience of a neural emulation. Specifically, if we take other human individuals as being sentient, why wouldn’t we also consider emulations sentient if they don’t necessarily provide less evidence. In time, this extends to recognizing the past as real.
