Truth Is Stranger #82: "Godsbot"

Just what we needed: an artificial intelligence Jesus. (Three words I never thought I'd put together.)

The website that explains it is here.

The demo site is here.

My best sample:
Me: What do you do for fun, Jesus?
The Godsbot: Bible Study.

Mmkay the bot is telling you that He has to study the book He inspired.

Not very likely.

But I suppose, in the same way He modeled prayer he could be modeling . . .

Okay so it isn't supposed to be Jesus. But what is it supposed to be exactly. I got nonsense answers to my questions. Maybe if we ignore it it will just go away.

My encounter was similar. See it here:

SherryTex said...

Clasps hands to cheeks in Munch like Scream fashion. "AAAAAHHHHHHHH!"

That's just wrong.

It was for creations such as these, that computer viruses were invented...

My encounter:

Me: don't you think it's wrong to create a fake jesus?
godsbot: Don't you? Signs point to yes. Ask Jesus if it is.
Me: Aren't you supposed to give Jesus-like answers?
godsbot: I learned more about the Tree of Life today.

okay then.

Even better:

Human: tell me about grace
godsbot: Ambiguous: Ask who, what or where is grace?

Human: what is grace
godsbot: I don't know anything about it .

Human: how do you not know anything about grace?
godsbot: It is a ritual I do the same way every time.

Me: "You are...unnerving."
"Christ": "No, I am not."

(I've snatched the headphones off after the first word - way too loud. Headphones held an inch from my ear, I try again.)

Me: "You are...unnerving."
"Christ": "No, I am not. Is that your final answer?"
Me: Yipe!!!

Londiniensis said...

Me: Should pelosi go to communion?
godsbot: Maybe you should ask someone older.

Me: Is abortion a sin?
godsbot: Better not tell you now. Ask Jesus if it is.

Me: What about the extraordinary form?
godsbot: That's not something I get asked all the time.

Meek and mild and mealy-mouthed!

Well, it certainly isn't about to pass a Turing test anytime soon.

But I really laughed at the truthfulness is this exchange:

Human: Are you talkative?
godsbot: I don't know whether or not I am talkative. I am a bot.
