I am not a robot. Because… (in a minute!)

If you were trying to convince another human that you yourself are also human, what would you say? Probably something about emotions, right? That might work – but other humans are more likely to believe your humanity if you talk about bodily functions.

Specifically, the word ‘poop’.

At least, that’s the finding from a study that sought to determine a “minimal Turing test”, narrowing the human-like intelligence assessment down to a single word.

In a new paper, cognitive scientists John McCoy and Tomer Ullman of MIT’s Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences (McCoy is now at the University of Pennsylvania) asked 1,089 study participants what single word they would choose for this purpose: not to help distinguish humans from machines, but to try to understand what we humans think makes us human. The next part of the study involved figuring out which of those words would be more likely to convince other humans of humanity.

Unsurprisingly, the least successful word was robot. But the most successful – poop – was a surprise. This could, the researchers said, be because ‘taboo’ words generate an emotional response, rather than simply describing one. (1)

Ah those humans.

Amazing beings.

Trying to understand the cosmos.

Feeling love and hate.

Trying hard.

Looking at the stars.

Wandering.

In search for meaning.

Alone with their self.

At the hardest time.

Poop!

Yeah…

Coming out in a minute!

Exceptionally clean jokes about Muhammad and Islam

Advertisements

Due to recent unrest about offensive movies regarding Muhammad, I thought I gather some good clean jokes so that we can all have a good time and relax. You know, every person has a sense of humor, even if that sense is too well hidden in some of them. Sharing good jokes is a way of coming closer together as human beings. Laughing is what unites us with the unseen and everlasting One…

Here are some good jokes regarding Islam. One can find jokes regarding all other faiths in the good old Jokes about Religion and Atheism page.

Atheistic France (again) as a proponent of Free Speech. Thank God!

France is once more in the front line of defending the right of Free Speech. French magazine Charlie Hebdo published satirical sketches of the prophet Mohamed, while at the same time the French administration has prohibited a protests against the recent US film which “insults” Muhammad [1].

Of course this had as a result the closing of French embassies in over 20 countries for the fear of retaliation.

Imagine a world where a simple cartoon could trigger deaths of people… Imagine a world where a movie could kill your loved ones or burn your house… Imagine a world… well, we don’t have to imagine that. We actually live it!

I am a religious person. But I say Thank God for France and its “atheistic obsession” with free speech!!!

Because religious people too can have humor and like free speech!
