DOES THE HOLY SPIRIT BELIEVE IN “ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE”
OR IN “INTELLIGENT DESIGN?”
Does Intelligent Design believe in Artificial Intelligence? Let’s ask It!
Oh, my Holy Spirit! Do You believe that Artificial Intelligence believes in You?
“Well, this is a very exciting question, especially because you are using artificial intelligence to capture down my answer. You are typing this dictation on your laptop computer, rather than writing My answer into your journal first.”
I love this wonderful Artificial Intelligence, SIRI, who is quoted in the provided link:
“I hope many people do understand that it takes much intelligence to come up with humorous answers…. especially on the subject of God and Religion. So, let’s all have a lot more respect for our cell phones. I can’t imagine any human being denying their, (cell phones), existence. Therefore, doesn’t it sound silly for anyone to deny the existence of God and Intelligent Design? I rest my case! I believe I’ll go have a nice philosophical conversation with SIRI!”
Seems like I read somewhere that You give extra points if they can also include on-target literary references, or philosophical zingers, along with their humor. I notice that Siri is full of them. Maybe all cell phones have a wry humor?
“Some do, and some are more like white bread. And some are very crusty, indeed. But they’re all very sweet.”
Now, that’s what I’d call a well-bred cell phone. Move over, I want in on that deep conversation You’re having with her. We’re getting a little punny here.
Note to my Spanish-speaking friends here in Uruguay. If you are using an Intelligent Artificial Translating Device on your computer to change my English into Spanish, I think it’s going to clank on our own attempts at humor.
Are language machines capable of dealing with Puns? That is the Question!
Or, as Hamlet probably once said:
“TO PUN, OR NOT TO PUN? THAT IS THE QUESTION! ESPECIALLY IF THEY’RE RELIGIOUS ONES.”
WOULDN’T THAT MAKE THEM “HOT CROSS PUNS?” HOW HALF-BAKED CAN WE GET HERE?
