Since the rebel repli's have a record of the mind probe of Rodney, would't they have learned about the ascension machine, then build one themselves to get ascended?

The mind probe they have of Rodney was from Progeny which happened before the Tao of McKay. So unfortunatly for them its not that easy.

edit - Oh and that machine worked on DNA which replicators don't have.

The machine didn't work properly. Didn't McKay was lucky not to die immediately?

Sheppard wanted to try it also but the probability of his death was just too high.

Yup. Their probe came 14 or so episodes too soon.

Well...technically Weir would've known about the machine when they captured her.

But I agree with the DNA thing. It wouldn't have worked for them.

That assumes they were able to mind-probe Weir and extract that information and then have enough of it to make some use out of it.

so the most current data the rebel replicators have of the SGA's exploits were extracted from Weir, then should't the rebel replis learn from that knowledge that they can't ascend, no matter what they do, since they lack the, er..for a lack of a better word, soul, in order to ascend?

Obviously that didn't/won't stop them from trying.

then they also know about the ascend ancient atha or something living on a planet protecting her people she was punished to only protect

so maybe a confrontion with her would help give them an answer
