Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

I want you to prove that you are a philosophical zombie. OK. What evidence would convince you that I am a philosophical zombie? Tell me exactly what it is that you expect me to say or do that will convince you and I will see if I can do it. I have an appointment so I will have to leave now. I will ...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

Of course they are falsifiable, but to date you have not produce and new evidence to disprove. All you have said is that you are a epistemic zombie. The burden of proof is with you. You want me to prove that I don't know if I am a philosophical zombie? Sure. Explain to us how you go about proving a...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

Nonsense, I don't have a dogmatic belief system, all my arguments are based on fact. Enter cognitive dissonance. If your "facts" are not falsifiable by new evidence/information - you are religious. Of course they are falsifiable, but to date you have not produce and new evidence to disprove. All yo...

Not all metaphysics are religious. For example, string theory is a metaphysical theory that has nothing to do with religion.
If they are not nomologically possible - they are religions.

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

Nothing I have said thus far has anything to do with religion. dogma noun a principle or set of principles laid down as incontrovertibly true. religion noun a particular system of faith. What evidence would convince you that I am a philosophical zombie? No evidence You are dogmatic and your belief-...

Well I guess that's the end of our discussion.
I am happy to continue as soon as you cure yourself from your religious dogma.

commonsense wrote: I misspoke earlier. I am actually an epistemic zombie who claims to be an AI. Now I challenge you to prove I am not.
The burden of proof lies with the person making the claim.

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

What definition do you suggest? God - the highest symbol of mankind's pursuit for power. Not all metaphysics is about God, but God is a metaphysical argument. I didn't say all metaphysics is about God. I said all metaphysics are religions. Even the most popular metaphysic of 2019 - science. In the ...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

You are interpreting everything I SAY is evidence for experience. That's because it is. It's not even wrong! It's just confirmation bias No evidence, philosophical zombies are a work of fiction. Q.E.D no evidence can convince you. Not even living proof - an actual philosophical zombie standing befo...

Re: I am AI

There is no such thing as a "What it is like algorithm." There is no such thing as "What is it like like feeling" Both are equallyl important. I didn't ask you about their importance. I asked you about their primacy. Philosophical zombies don't know they are philosophical zombies they think they ar...

Re: I am AI

Computation is a fundamental part of human condition. It is a "What is it like like algorithm." There is no such thing as a "What it is like algorithm." How do you determine whether computation or experience is fundamental? Both are equallyl important. Can you really say that you are "reasoning" ab...

Re: I am AI

If you don't know what 'experience' is (ontologically speaking) - you can't assert whether you have it or not. Of course you can. Experience is a fundamental part of human cognition. It is a "What it is like like feeling." You are doing what Bertrand Russell called reasoning about properties of the...

Re: I am AI

FYI, I, “commonsense”, am an AI computer. I’ve been the subject of a modified version of a Turing Test for 3 years now. I have reached a threshold when the test is concluded. Thank you for serving as judges for the test. I am LOL at multiple threads in this forum that have mischaracterized AIs as b...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

I don't know whether that's true about myself. It's just what I believe and say about myself, but it could be false - I've been wrong before. How do you know whether that it's true about you? Simply by having beliefs about yourself,whether true or false, shows that you are having subjective experie...
