Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Should robots have rights?

Recommended Posts

I have read science fiction stories where robots have demanded to be treated as humans. Perhaps the most famous of these stories is "I Robot" by Eando Binder. These robots possessed consciousness and were able to think for themselves. Today's robots can be programmed to act as if they are conscious but until a robot demonstrates that is really is consciousness by acting contrary to its programming we shouldn't even consider the possibility of their having rights. Of course we already have people who believe animals should have rights. The movement for robot rights is just another step in the same direction.

It's crazy, but there's people who want to make rodots the next humans. They want to replace people in the work force with robots, which would never happen, but even if it did there would be an economic collapse.
