And we sometimes wonder why there aren't more women here...  GAAK!

Not even you can tolerate real honesty ... with children here, it would be Sesame Street.  With more women here, it would be Ladies Home Journal.  Not that there is anything wrong with that, if you are a child or a woman.  But not in my man cave!  I don't consider sex to be a sin.  But I choose not to use some of the more inventive devices ... though Munch talks about them ... and then there is that recent string on how great prostitution is ;-)

You missed all the posts of pedophilia, the year before you joined ;-(

The word "pedophilia" sounds like it should refer to someone with a foot fetish...

I disagree.  I try to live in real honesty and reply regardless of participants.

If there were children here, I would speak to them as an adult (kindly).  If there were more women here, I would speak to them as equals.  I've never had a problem with that.

My only objection is to theists.

Good for you.  So "aping atheist rhetoric" ... if you have gotten rid of every bigotry same one ... then you have only one more bigotry to lose.

That's podophilia.

A materialist is like Pygmalion, the Cypriote who carved a woman from stone, and prayed to Aphrodite to make her into a real woman.  This is a very old story.  American reliance on automation in warfare ... from Talos, the bronze mechanical man, who guarded the coasts of Crete for King Minos ...

I guess it's similar to how a planet can be "earth-like" without being anything like what we could live on.

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

I can't live in an under-sea volcanic vent, but there is life that can.  That is pretty alien.  But the rocks in the vent would still be categorized as un-alive.  A sci-fi horta is rock-like ... but living.  A rock that just sits there while the Federation mines it, not so much.

It's a Westworld reference.  The point of the quote is to suggest that there's no clear dividing line between an extremely human-like robot and an actual human.

Nihilists would agree that consciousness doesn't exist, so would Buddhists.  Pow!  They need their lights put out.

My understanding of "earthlike" means a rocky world, in a zone allowing some amount of liquid water, with a gravity we could survive and an atmosphere we could survive.

You are clearly not an AI ... you are intelligent (see OP).
