OK this article cracked me up. Robot Priests are becoming a thing. Nikki Harper presents an open minded viewpoint. Here's mine. True religion is the individual's search and connection to God. It is personal and the heart is the primary seat of that consciousness. The best thing a robot can reflect is the mind and not even a creative one at that for they can not access Divine inspiration. So if teaching the mind is your idea of 'spirituality' they may have a place but they are no different than prayer wheels or indulgences and all the other artifices that people have created to avoid the reality of personal effort. God lies within each of us. Our connection requires no priesthood... human or robotic (which is patently ridiculous).
