>>Likewise, it's not funny when atheists say that Jesus was a zombie Jew. It just reveals their utter ignorance about the difference between Animate Dead (3rd level) and Resurrection (7th level spell). Although it could arguably be a True Res (9th level) as well, depending on if you think Jesus lost a level or not. Fucking victory for the funniest Jesus reference ever. Also, I'm an atheist, There's a difference between what you call "mainstream" and fundementalists, yes (though I bet the average is not what you're considering mainstream) but it's not a large difference. In the end, it always comes down to belief without evidence -- That's the definition of faith after all. That is not scientific, it's not logical, and it's not reasonable by any stretch of the imagination.

The moment a machine passes the Turing Test, the test itself will be trivialized. "Yeah it can fake a conversation, but it's not aware that it's having a conversation" or "It can talk but doesn't really understand what it's talking about" and so on. In truth, the field of AI has made huge strides over the last 30 years. The problems solved are just demoted to "automation" or clever "software engineering" the moment they're found, as HungryHobo stated.

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
