Re: Artificial, as in Fake Intelligence

That is because a computer has no instincts, emotions, autonomic nervous system, or anything remotely alive or possible to become sentient, ever

OK, now explain how human beings have instincts, emotions, and sentience.1 Are our minds not effects of mechanical processes? What prevents us from creating an artificial device which produces similar effects?

(And I have no idea why you lumped "autonomic nervous system" in there.)

1Perhaps you mean sapience? It's easy to argue that some machines already have sentience.
