My interview with Siri.
Some of you may have read of the funny answers Siri, the operating system on the iPhone, gives when you ask her questions about her own beliefs. Somebody has programmed her to give very evasive answers about herself. I was sitting with friends, one of whom had an iPhone, having coffee, and just for a joke, I tried to ask Siri about her and her religious beliefs. Here’s what happened.
Siri, do you believe in God?
I don’t believe that I have beliefs.
Siri, do you believe in life after death?
Humans have beliefs, computers have silicon.
Siri, do you go to church?
I believe in the separation of church and silicon.
Siri, do you believe God is a trinity?
I would suggest that you address your theological questions to someone qualified to answer them, preferably a human.
Do you eat Pork?
I don’t each much.
Siri, am I a good person?
I don’t believe that I can answer that question.
Siri, are you a good person?
Who, me? Now let’s see, where were we?
And here’s the best: Siri, do you love me?
You’re looking for love in all the wrong places.
