Robot Theology

http://religiondispatches.org/automata/

Robot theology?  The line between humans and robots is being blurred they say.  How foolish.  Humans are biological and are created in the image of God.  Each soul is a unique creation and was made for the purpose of worshiping the almighty God.

Robots are creations of man.  We make robots, often to look like ourselves.  Sometimes we take technology and add it to ourselves.  We make robots in our own image.  We are arrogant if we think we are making anything but toys compared to what God has created.

There is no such thing as robot theology.  Robots are just machines.  No matter how clever they become they are still here only to serve humans.  Robots do not deserve the rights of humans, even if they have artificial intelligence that mimics human abilities; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
