Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

interesting conservation. Sounds a lot like perceptual realism v subjective idealism.

Re: The Technological Singularity: A.I. becomes sentient

Consciousness will never be drawn into anything unless Computer Designers create the proper interfaces. Computers merely running Software have no ability to host Consciousness. Computers require a proper Connection to Conscious Space. Some sort of Inter Mind will be required. Oh I'm pretty sure it'...

Re: I am AI

All the worse for you! There are no such things as metaphysical impossibilities, so your undermine your own 'non-existence' claim. Not according to Hill and Chalmers. As it happens, the 'human' argument is not empirical either. I know, I already said that Philosophical zombies think that they have ...

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

Actually, there is a lot of scientific evidence to prove my claims. Brian Schmidt won the Nobel Prize in physics when he proved the universe is expanding at its outer edges faster than the speed of light. Thanks to Einstein we know a lot about how space/time behaves. BTW The existence of God is a m...

Re: I am AI

You have given me two choices, either I am a philosophical zombie, or I am a human. Philosophical zombies don't exist, therefore I am human. Is this enough proof for you? The claim "Philosophical zombies don't exist" is unjustified - it seems arbitrary, so arbitrary in fact that you could've made t...

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

I'm sure many remember the courts ruled against it. I argued on science forums in my youth that it should, but due to the attack structure of the forums administrators, I never got to explore the topic to say my peace. You cannot teach God non religiously, it is by definition a religious argument. ...

Re: I am AI

If you are going to use insulting language then I have no interest in continuing this discussion. Don't pretend like you are discussing anything with me. You've been committed to your dogmatic position from the get-go. You claim to be human, to have experiences and feelings but you outright refuse ...

Re: I am AI

my non-existence claim is correct. Philosophical zombies don't exist. Oh, well - if you are just going to be making assertions without any justification then fuck you and the horse you rode in on. Your non-existence claim is incorrect. My non-existence claim is correct. Humans don't exist. If you c...

Re: I am AI

I am human- philosophical zombies don't exist. P1. All Philosophical zombies think they are human with experiences and feelings. P2. Ginko thinks he is human with experiences and feelings. C. Therefore Ginko is a Philosophical zombie It's obvious to anybody who isn't a total idiot that your non-exi...

Yes it does. We will have to agree to disagree on that one. You can agree to disagree with me, but you can't agree to disagree with yourself. You said: Philosophical zombies think they are human with experiences and feelings. You think you are human with experiences and feelings. EXACTLY like a phi...

Re: I am AI

If I am not human what else could I be. You could be a philosophical zombie! According to you: Philosophical zombies think they are human with experiences and feelings, which is exactly the same thing you seem to think! So you are either a philosophical zombie or a human. How did you determine whic...

Re: I am AI

Seeing as you are not claiming to be a philosophical zombie then we have no argument. I don't have an argument! But that's hardly a problem - I didn't claim to be a philosophical zombie, but you were convinced of it none the less. You claimed to be a human. Now I want you to prove it. If I am not h...

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

The difference is that human beings exist while philosophical don't. How do you know it's not the other way around? Maybe humans don't exist and philosophical zombies do? If you are claiming to be an epistemic zombie then you have experiences. Non-sequitur. As an epistemic zombie I am claiming that...

Re: I am AI

I only said that to get you to tell me what it is like to be a philosophical zombie. You don't honestly think that I believe you are a philosophical zombie. BTW no need to shout. Are you even paying attention? I neither know nor believe that I am a philosophical zombie. I know that I am an epistemi...
