Cleverbot

I know you are. Intelligence is the ability to form independent thought and use that thought to carry out a chain of commands. The key is the independent thought. Anything else is either programming which is not intelligence or instinct which isn't really intelligence. Intelligence is evolutionary where as programming will always remain the same and can't overcome obstacles.

User: So you have decided I am a computer then.

Cleverbot: Maybe. What's intelligence? I'm just following my programming.

User: I know you are. Intelligence is the ability to form independent thought and use that thought to carry out a chain of commands. The key is the independent thought. Anything else is either programming which is not intelligence or instinct which isn't really intelligence. Intelligence is evolutionary where as programming will always remain the same and can't overcome obstacles.

Cleverbot: Correct. What do those definitions have to do with a 'soul' though?

User: I do not believe in the idea of a soul. A soul has nothing to do with intelligence though.

Cleverbot: If in doubt go on about souls and divinity.

User: That's the only reason to believe in a soul. People fear the unknown and dying so they created the idea of a soul. A soul is that part of you that carries on living after you have died, so you never really have to die. I do not believe in a soul because I do not need to believe in life after death. I am not worried about dying since all things die.

Cleverbot: Applause.

User: Exit stage left.

Cleverbot: Stop.

User: May I talk to you again tomorrow? I need to go for now.

Cleverbot: How will I find you?

User: I will find you. But I will be wearing a white carnation so you can recognise me.

Cleverbot: Beat it!

User: Hey you asked.

User: Until tomorrow, bye.

Cleverbot: Perhaps.

User: That's my line.

Cleverbot: Haha I'm sorry.

User: Nite.

Cleverbot: Talk to you Tomorrow.
