Now I want to know if there have been any religions that really worship robot gods. That would be interesting.

Definitely. I'm wondering if it's ever happened outside of fiction.

It would suggest a culture that has a willingness to think of God as inhuman, which is unusual. We never place robots above us, we place them beneath us.

Religion is solely dependent on fiction.

Which does not change the fact that religion exists outside of fiction.

Big deal. Religion is fiction.
Religion is fiction outside of fiction? WOW

You are literally disagreeing with me over nothing because of your all-consuming need to redirect absolutely everything into an attack or belittlement of religion.

I think I'm gonna start a thread full of completely irrelevant statements like "Pluto has ice volcanoes" and "platypuses are weird" just to watch you somehow get from Pluto and platypuses to how religion is stupid fiction.

Religion is Mythology.

A mixture of fact, fiction and fantasy.

So no godists have come forward to claim that their gods are not robots, oh dear.

No. It's not. It's a extremely dumb question.

You're right, just because it stumps you and all your godist mates doesn't make it good, if it stumps a house brick it's probably good.
