Exaggeration and stereotype. Nonsense.
It is difficult for most rational people to persist with “all X are like ________ “ when they actually interact with people in real life.
Read up on slave instinct and make X = religion. The result is people like you with an illusory superiority and no interest in the evidence presented to you.
When did the topic switch to religion?
Robots and religion are not mutually exclusive.
And as we can see, some people cannot let go the security blanket of illogical conclusions and irrational beliefs.
This could have been a great thread if the OP had the ability to make a rational argument.
Simplistic generalizations and facile stereotypes are never the means to real understanding.
Anyone who spends time with actual human beings today would have to be terribly committed to prejudice to maintain such asinine nonsense as referring to over a billion individuals as "robots." Anyone studying the ancient history of Asia will also, if one is willing to see clearly, see that individualism was as much a factor in the process of cultural, spiritual, and political development in the East as in the West.
Right now there are 5 of us who disagree with the OP.
If this thread were to continue to progress, there would soon be 10 of us who oppose the OP and be told their post are also ignorant nonsense.
Eventually there would be 15 of us who disagree with the OP.
And finally we would settle in with nature as 20 of us oppose the OP.
Unkotare would become so frustrated that he would tell us we are all ignorant robots.
Since Unkotare is myopic, he would miss the fact that he just falsified his own hypothesis.
Talk about irony. Nature wins again.
