Let me ask you these questions: How many trillion synapsis will it take before the computer achieves consciousness? How many terabytes of storage until the computer loves sacrificially? At what point will this computer become introspective and have a free will and know what is right and wrong intuitively? You may be able to *program* responses, but you will never, ever, create the human soul that understands justice, and charity, and hope, and creativity.... I wouldn't dare presume to *prove* something I cannot see, never created or certainly don't understand fully.

Science is to computer science as hydrodynamics is to plumbing.
