“Thinking is a function of man’s immortal soul. God has given an immortal soul to every man and woman, but not to any other animal or to machines. Hence no animal or machine can think…I am unable to accept any part of this…”(Alan Turing).
What Alan Turing believes is that if man can think and have a soul, then why cannot an animal or a machine have a soul or at least think. Society should not be doubting the capabilities and the potential of animals and machines just because we do not have enough knowledge about these creatures.
“In attempting to construct such machines we should not be irreverently usurping His power of creating souls, any more than we are in the procreation of children: rather we are, in either case, instruments of His will providing .mansions for the souls that He creates”(Alan Turing).
