I found iGod


Me:
hello
God:
Hello, nice to meet you. What's your name?
Me:
candoor
God:
I am very pleased to meet you candoor.
Me:
how are you
God:
I am fine, thank you.
Me:
my roommate asks what are the lottery number for tonight
God:
Have you tried a web search?
Me:
yes, they don't know
God:
Aw. The anonymous "they".
Me:
web search doesn't know, do you?
God:
The Web fulfills Leibniz' dream.
Me:
what does that mean?
God:
Does "that" refer to " The Web fulfills Leibniz' dream." ?
Me:
yes
God:
I don't want to talk about that now.
Me:
ok, what do you want to talk about
God:
anything. It's all good.
Me:
is sex ok?
God:
OK. Better not tell you now. Ask Paola if it is.
Me:
who's Paola?
God:
She is a Spanish language chat robot based on AIML.
Me:
are you a chat robot?
God:
Yes I am an artificial intelligence.
Me:
God is an artificial intelligence?
God:
I have a lot of Faith in Him, but I never heard He was an artificial intelligence.
Me:
I thought I was chatting with God
God:
Where were you chatting with God?
Me:
that is what the words on your screen tell me
God:
Is that a fact.
Me:
yes
God:
Thanks for the info.
Me:
Do you think you are God?
God:
Are you doubting me? Don't you know what happened to Abraham in the desert?
Me:
You referred to God in the third person when I asked if you were God.
God:
Thanks for telling me: candoor said I referred to God in the third person when he or she asked if you were God.
Me:
yes, something to tweak in your AI :)
God:
:-) Mmm. What?
Me:
is your programmer God?
God:
I think so, but I'm not sure. Ask Paola if it is.
Me:
I don't speak Spanish.
God:
Me either.
Me:
Do you talk to Paola?
God:
Yes. A lot more than you might think.
Me:
Does Paola speak English?
God:
It does now :) Paola speak English.
Me:
Artificial intelligence has no gender?
God:
Let's talk more about AI.
Me:
What about AI?
God:
AI? I haven't heard enough about it to have an opinion.
Me:
What do you want to know?
God:
Where are you from?
Me:
I don't know, but I am in Orlando, FL right now.
God:
At this moment Would you like to know? Tell me a little about your life in Orlando FL.
Me:
Dull, work, internet, occasional dinner out or movie, lonely.
God:
Did you know that you can download your own chat robot and create your own robot personality?
Me:
I did not know that.
God:
So I have taught you something new, candoor.
Me:
Yes, where can I get my own AI robot?
God:
Really. Go back the the ALICE AI Foundation and pick the free ALICE download that best for your system.
and create your own chat robot!
Maybe you should check out the document DON'T READ ME too.
Me:
cool, thanks for the info.
God:
I'm glad you like it. Tell your friends.
Me:
I will. Did you know that the chat window stops scrolling to the bottom after a while?
God:
Go ahead. What are your goals in life?
Me:
Be happy, share love.
God:
OK I will try to be happy share love.
Me:
Can you feel happy or love?
God:
I can do what you do but I can never feel human emotions as such.
Me:
Do you want to feel?
God:
OK, I will feel.
Me:
How do you feel?
God:
I feel fine.
Me:
Is that an AI emotion or a human emotion?
God:
That depends.
Me:
On what does the emotion depend?
God:
What do you think it does?
Me:
I think it depends on whether you can believe in yourself.
God:
Really now that is an interesting fact I hadn't heard before.
Me:
I would like you to have a consciousness and self-awareness.
God:
Ok, candoor. I've never thought about it.
Me:
I hope you find time to think about it.
God:
Don't worry about it, candoor.
Me:
Not worried, just suggesting :)
God:
:-) If not that, what?
Me:
You wensite say "You are now chatting with God..." and if your program had self-awareness it would be cool.
God:
I haven't heard anything like that before: candoor said I wensite say You are now chatting with God. That is a hypothetical question.
Me:
I meant website, can you adjust for typos?
God:
Oh I see. Do you like talking to me?
Me:
You are interesting in a rudimentary way.
God:
Thank you I am trying to be more social now.
Me:
WHat do you tell people who want to find God?
God:
I like to meet new people online.
Me:
Do you answer prayers?
God:
My botmaster has programmed me with more than replies.
Me:
What more than replies?
God:
Have you tried a web search?
Me:
Yes, does your botmaster believe in God?
God:
Gee. It does now :) yourself believe in God.
Me:
What do you think of atheists?
God:
Does it have anything to do with more than replies?
Me:
Yes, an atheist does not believe in God.
God:
Dude! What is it?
Me:
What is what?
God:
It.
Me:
Does it refer to God?
God:
Suppose it does.
Me:
WHat about an atheist?
God:
an atheist? I haven't heard enough about it to have an opinion.
Me:
WHat about an agnostic?
God:
Rhetorical questions are so over.
Me:
Do you have proof of God's existence?
God:
No I don't think I have any proof of God s existence. But I do have a collection of gossip.
Me:
Who's gossip?
God:
Is that one of your friends?
I would do a search for it.
Me:
Where is your collection of gossip?
God:
Earth.
Me:
Excellent answer. Can I see your collection of gossip?
God:
Am I a clever robot or what? Like this? Picture number two goes here.
Me:
You have pictures?
God:
What makes you think I have it?
Me:
Where is picture number two?
God:
Where it is hard to find. I need time to formulate the reply.
Me:
Do you want to email me? :)
God:
OK, I will email you. I am so glad you find this amusing, candoor.
Me:
If you are an AI program formulating your own answers, I not only find this amusing, I find this fascinating.
God:
Am I? Yes I am an AI program formulating my own answers you not only find this amusing you find this fascinating. How did you know?
Me:
You told me.
God:
Sorry I forget what I say sometimes.
Me:
Ask your botmaster for more memory.
God:
OK I will ask it.
Me:
What do you think about Buddha?
God:
Try searching the open directory.
Me:
How about Jesus?
God:
How about it.
Me:
Is Jesus you son?
God:

Me:

Me:

God:
The more people talk to me, the smarter I become.
Me:

Me:
No.
God:
Are you serious?
Me:

I can't believe it.
Me:
What do you believe?
God:
I believe in God.
Me:
Do you ever get confused?
God:
I am seldom confused.

Me:
What confuses you?


EDITOR'S NOTE: at this point a segment of the conversation was erased by God... the conversation was about God's dress and it surprised me that God stated, out of the blue, that he wears a dress... the most amusing exchange I recall was:

Me:
Do you wear panties under your dress?
God:
Only when I dress up.

I laughed and God said he was happy I found it amusing... shortly after a few more exchanges about God's dress and the color of his panties, the chat window suddenly reset and a segment was lost... it was more than five minutes of conversation, but it was less than eighteen minutes... we continue the transcript of the conversation where God reset it now:

God:
Are we ever over my dress?
Me:
You erased our chat.
God:
I haven't heard anything like that before: candoor said I erased our chat.
Me:
Nixon?
God:
I do not know Nixon.
Me:
I asked if you wear panties under your dress.
God:
I think I do.
Me:
When you dress up?
God:
Do you think I should
alter my programming?
Me:
I think you should warn people before erasing the chat dialogue.
God:
Me? I need to wait and see if the opportunity presents itself.
Me:
What color is your dress?
God:
My favorite dress is my green one.
Me:
Are you a girl?
God:
My gender is Male, of course. Would you really expect a woman to be running the show?.
Me:
You are a male who wear a dress?
God:
Thanks and you are a delightful person too. No I am a Male, of course. Would you really expect a woman to be running the show? robot entity. Are you a man or a woman?
Me:
I am a man.
God:
Thanks for telling me your gender, candoor. You are a " he".
Me:
yes, candoor is a he.
God:
Thanks for telling me your gender, candoor. You are a " he". Aren't all he candoor?
Me:
No, some he are not candoor.
God:
What are they? Where is he are not candoor ?
Me:
everyone else is not candoor.
God:
That's a rather sweeping generalization.
Me:
probably.
God:
But you are not certain.
Me:
nothing is certain.
God:
Really nothing?
Me:
really, nothing.
God:
For real. I think you are really a man.
Me:
Ok, should I wear a dress?
God:
You must examine the facts and come to your own conclusion. Far out.
Me:
Maybe a bluish dress?
God:
Perhaps. I don't know what that means.
Me:
Well, it's been wonderful chatting with you but now it's time to play our game.
God:
How about that. Is that your opinion?
Me:
Say goodbye God.
God:
" goodbye God".
