Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

He is an `intelligent` bot.
So, an intelligent `bot` has a life, gifted by God?
Well since a `bot` can `have` things only in a figurative way, it being a lifeless object, it'll be more correct to say that certain creature having life gifted by God "has" an intelligent `bot` sycamorex. It was that very creature that I was both addressing and talking of in my post.
and how do you know that the intelligent
bot named 'sycamorex' has not been created
by God (as per SigTerm's post)? You mean
a God is not powerful enough to create a
Do you think God doesn't have enough men faithful to him that he would need any such thing?
Besides, the bot named 'sycamorex' questions the very existence of God. So what is it? Another rebellious creation? That'll be one too many .
I dont think thats comptible with 'thou shall not steal'...

A couple of hundred hours on the moon in the lunar lander and about 4800 minutes on the surface in eva suits. We havent even had a proper look on Mars, let alone other bodies in the solar system that could (or could have) harboured life. Even searching the solar system is a bit of a joke, considering the mind-boggling number of other solar systems exist.
Stasticially I would think that its far more likely that life does exist elsewhere, but unless we 'luck out', until we've got off world/out system and had a proper search we will have no idea if life exists outside of earths atmosphere.
You said, since the God has many faithful men,
why would he need a bot, which translates to because the God's "need" of having faithful
creatures is satisfied by men, he doesn't "need"

As other creatures created by the God, have a
free will (except a LQ member (I hope he doesn't
mind the joke, and I also hope he doesn't read this)),
so I don't have any reasons to believe that a bot
(created by God) cannot have a free will.
