It seems ridiculous to even ask. "Of course robots are not people!" But, since it's Friday, I thought I'd spend a little time challenging the idea.
While I will admit, robots are not human the question about life remains. What constitutes life? If we're talking about humans or animals, we might use the standard of a heartbeat which I have used many times when discussing infants in the womb. But is this the only way to classify life?
I want to dig into this a little and have a bit of a philosophical discussion. It's something we don't do much on the show, but given the fact that the EU is proposing giving legal status to robots it seems worthy of discussion.
Smash cut to the Russian defense minister who, in a statement said, "We have evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organizing this provocation."
But again, if the Russians have evidence, they're not sharing it. So who's telling the truth? Probably no one.
Enjoy the weekend! Don't forget to share!
