I would like to have a few words with whoever programmed him.

His artifical nature is given away by his literal mindedness, his
repetition of canned responses, and his inability to understand how a
theory can be supported or undermined by a thought experiment. I guess
programming an autodidactic monomaniacal sociopath is easier than a real

somewhere! Doug Hofstadter, I'm looking at you!!
