If humans create an artificial 'being' with real intellect, and perhaps even real consciousness, have we created a being with a soul?
If so, has mankind made a mockery of God?
Has mankind become the Creator?

"How many years did you get?"
"30 with no chance of parole."
"Ouch! You must have had a real jerk for a Judge."
"Yeah, I drew one of those Justicemaster 3000s."
"You humans SHUT UP!"
"I forgot that those Prisonmasters had such good hearing sensors."
"Yep. Your on his bad side now. Robot abusers have a rough time in here."
Think about it. If this post is any indication this scenario isn't too far in the future.

A second question to ask of those who think you should have the ability to torture, damage, or destroy a robot without responsibility or repurcussion. Would you say the same thing about your dog? Just curious.
