No doubt you will say that science doesn't know everything and just hasn't found the answer, but the problem is that science hasn't even found evidence that there is a question that needs answering, or if you prefer to put it another way, science hasn't found any evidence that a intelligent conscious computer is more impossible than a intelligent conscious human. Unless you can show at a fundamental level that biology has something that electronics lacks we must conclude that If computers can't be conscious then neither can humans. > irreversible damage would occur just as it would with dementia or a > malignant brain tumor. > I would say that would be more like a benign brain tumor, in fact given that it performs exactly like the original brain cells it would not be going too far to call it an Infinitely benign brain tumor.
