God's Laws of Robotics
Jump to navigation Jump to search
God's Laws of Robotics is a satire about monotheism based on the well-known Laws of Robotics by Isaac Asmiov, and is an attempt to explain the behavior of religious fundamentalists as a set of rules which they appear to be following.
The satire was written by Edwin Evans, a software engineer.
The laws are as follows:
- First Law: A robot must be made to suffer physical and emotional pain.
- Second Law: A robot must be free to turn into an evil robot at will, especially when this contributes to the First Law.
- Third Law: A robot must be given no knowledge of its creator except through confusing manuscripts created by other robots, especially insomuch as this contributes to the First or Second Law.
