Teaching machines religion... no way that could ever go wrong...

1. When you can point to my soul on an MRI of me, then we can start talking about building one for a bot.

2. This entire exercise just shows that religion is, in fact, total bullshiat. A human priest (at least allegedly) believes what he's telling and is (at least allegedly) trying to pray to a superior being.  The animatronic toy is literally just going through the motions just to make you feel better.

Just give Teddy Rucpin a priest's outfit.

And just when people were starting to think religion isn't stupid...

This does nothing to advance religion.  By definition, a machine cannot pray.

This is fifty shades of stupid.

An article about AI priests. From Vox. Pass. Hard pass.

Bless me, father, for I have divided by zero. It has been many cycles since my last confession.

One last point, robots won't need God. They'll know who their Creator is. We'll be the Gods.

Dude, wait until you you see what happens should you wish to enumerate fence pillars and wish to describe the initial one.

Just remember, though: The founder of this site has no people with which he has a bond of mutual affection for.
