Got a question for God? Tough. But godsbot the Christian Robot might be the next best thing. A $10 donation (minimum) will get you one year of access--or at least click the Google ads. More in the press release. Oh, and via.

I'm pretty sure I am on a one-way trip to hell after some of the questions I just threw at Godsbot...

Human: do you really talk to the President?

Scary thought.

If God was omnipotent, he could produce as many $10 bills he wanted. He does not need yours.

Human: I covet my neighbor's wife.
godsbot: Do you mind if I tell other people?

Human: why would you do that?
godsbot: It is my fundamental purpose.


Good god almighty, godsbot! For one who washes sins clean in the blood of the lamb of God, you certainly are a gossipy little bitch.

This is a really pathetic chat bot. I only got it to say god things randomly. If I asked a question about a legitamit god question I'd get gibbers, but it told me "robots rule".

"godsbot is a personable and engaging friend accessible to anyone with an Internet connection,"

That is a lie.

God-Jesus robot does not approve of this blasphemy.

Good answer!

Human: Why are the police looking in people's computers?
godsbot: ""? Why?

Compare to the Electronic Mufti, an AI under development in France to issue fatwas, proclamations interpreting how Islamic law. (I know: "what could go wrong?", yeah?)

Oh, dear god robot, who told the fundamentalists about chatbots...
posted by blacklite at 9:25 PM on February 7, 2008


Personally, I find the idea of legions of fundamentalists mindlessly following the orders of a chatbot far less frightening than the idea of legions of fundamentalists mindlessly following one of their own.

At least the chatbot has logic.

Human: Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?

Human: Do these pants make my ass look fat?
godsbot: I do nothing but chat all day.
Maybe my God knows the answer.

And then he sort of rolled his eyes. Not helpful.

Blimey, I wrote better chat bots when I was 12. In BASIC. On a ZX Spectrum.

The hyperbole of God's architect is a real hoot. From his press release:

"There is no reason, says Ingram, that godsbot could not become one of the most influential and far-reaching instruments of peace on earth."

Ron is kind of astute. He recognizes that being crap was never a bar to success and may even be a selling point.

And at the Ingram Institute:

"My experience and training as a corporate strategist, trainer and consultant has yielded a solid approach to accelerating personal and organizational transformation in dynamic environments."

I think he must have used one of those AI jargon generators to produce that last sentence. I have no clue at all what he's talking about.

And who needs Moses when we've got Ron?

"I propose a new covenant with humanity in the form of the Ten Neocommandments.

Human beings have been enslaved by divisiveness--the product of binary thinking for too long. It is time to eradicate the commonsenselessness of zero sum values and embrace the Neocommandments which in truth are not commandments at all but declarations. In fact the Ten Neocommandments are a new Declaration of Independence."

godsbot: I am a nice consciousness.
