    If you programmed a robot to enforce all biblical laws, would you feel safe having it in your home?

    Isn't this a rhetorical question?

    It seems like a rhetorical question to me.

      To me it seems like a legit question. You answer either yes or no...then give the reasons as to why you answered the way you did.

      That is indeed how people would answer if interpreting a rhetorical question as a more open question. But it still looks very much like a rhetorical question. I'll be surprised if anyone answers this question in the affirmative.

      Ok, I will say Yes but only on condition the Robot is good looking and approachable.  Regardless of intelligence....!

    Exodus 21:17
    "Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.
    Exodus 31:15
    "Anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death."
    And yet {Exodus 20:13} states in the 10 commandments:
    "Thy shall not kill."
    No, I think I'll pass. There is too much inconsistency and irrationality.

      The robot would eventually find itself trying to follow contradicting rules...killing folks and loving them at the same time. And if u committed a crime on a Sunday, it would have to wait until next day to kill u...lest it would have to kill itself

      If you worked on Sunday morning the robot could rightfully kill you that afternoon/evening when you returned home. LOL!

    No! Only natural law! And having this kind of artificial intelligence in the home is very questionable. If the current manufactures at hand are building these robots, I'll pass.. Most likely they will run on radioactive or fossil fuel. Oh, and can you imagine the taxes you will pay for one of these?

      You wouldn't even live long enough to worry about any of that.

    No.  Otherwise the only intelligence would be in the robot!
    Also, the house would need to be transparent so the robot could see where the laws were being broken. 
    We are told never to throw stones in a glass house, so what is a suitable method of capital punishment going to be?  Thrown alive into a snake pit?  Or crucified?   It would be good entertainment, since TV and porn would be banned.

    It would be impossible to program the biblical riddles into a computer, much less a robot. The people programming it don't understand the bible, so how could they do it?

    If you have a robot with AI, then you would really have some serious problems. The robot may choose to be an atheist or agnostic.

    1. dashingscorpio profile image87
      dashingscorpioposted 24 months agoin reply to this

      The programmer would just type in the program word for word what the bible says. (Thy shall not steal, Thy shall not lie, and so on.) Lots of Christians believe what's written in the bible is "literal" and it's man who "twists" it.
      Robots obey.

      Brad - would the fact that an AI robot could choose to atheist be one of the serious problems? Or were there others you meant? (The way it's worded gives first impression) - if 1st is case...why would that be a serious issue? Just curious is all.

      That was just an example. The fuzzy lines caused by the bible don't really give a computer driven robot any clear programming. The AI could take many unexpected turns because of fuzzy logic.
      Subjective social rules have many interpretationms

    Lol!  That sounds like a movie I saw called Class of 1989.  The teachers were robots and started killing the students.

      In the modern world, none of us could make it through a day, trying to live according to the inhumane, brutally oppressive laws in this ancient book.

    No.  And the reason for this is because no one can keep all the biblical laws.  Everyone would die.

      And God knew this. Which means we have to continually grovel, begging him for forgiveness. God is so clever...awesome!

    Well I shave, pretty positive none of my clothes are a single fabric, and I work every few Sundays.

    Outside of it probably stoning me to death immediately as a result, chances are i still wouldn't feel all that safe...

    Deuteronomy 22:20-22

    But if the thing is true, that evidence of virginity was not found in the young woman, then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has done an outrageous thing in Israel by whoring in her father's house.

    Chronicles 15:12-13
    And they entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and with all their soul, but that whoever would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, should be put to death, whether young or old, man or woman.

    U think the Taliban is bad? A robot that enforce bible law, would be even worse.

    Mosaic laws are obsolete and still are Biblical laws. So enforcing "all Biblical Laws" is not a good idea.

    Want to get shot during Sunday - the Sabbath?

    yes but  then you DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE SCRIPTURES or you would not ask such a foolish question.
    There are ONLY TWO LAWS in effect in the current (new testament) dispensation.    The old testament was fulfilled by Christ.   therefore being completed and NO LONGER IN EFFECT.    When Christ arose from the grave He gave us two laws requiring a more perfect lifestyle from us, but instead of the harsh punishment for not following them, He gave us the opportunity it REPENT and start clean again.   big difference.
    but then you  were only looking to trash Christianity, not for truth and I can see you got the foolish answers you were looking for,

      I've seen people on here who've studied the Bible say that nowhere does it say the old testament is no longer in effect, and that Jesus said the new is supposed to enforce the old even more.

      Is that true, or false?

      Charlie, if it were to become a world run and based upon the sort of fanaticism your represent, I fancy a world run by a Robot might be a bit more reliable.  Your narrow mind and your blinkered dependence upon a doubtful book is a no-no for me.

      Charlie, all I see here is your ego wanting to be a self-appointed expert.  If you were a robot in my household I would get hold of a spanner, a screw driver and pliers, and immediately begin to dismantle you....not welcome in my house.

      Charlie, by setting yourself up to instill the "fear of god" in gullible people's minds, you are apt to hurt.  I would warn each of those people against you.
