Does worship from a computer count?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (17114points) January 16th, 2019

Can you outsource prayer to robots? Can anyone get any thing from artificial worship?

No it does not. It’s as worthless as writing on carbon paper and making multiple copies. Worship must come from the heart.

@Mimishu1995 You mean he got an answer back??

@kritiper Well technically yes. Everyday he would generate a random string of number from a randomize machine then put it into a software in his OS that could translate numbers into music and lyrics. He considered the process “communicating with God”.

Not in my opinion based on my religious views.

Mr. Davis had a lot of mental issues, so although his claims to have received a directive from God to build that, I’d be very skeptical.

@Mimishu1995 Well, technically, okay… (GA)

So—no use for prayer wheels, then? Other people’s style of worship is just worthless?

@Jeruba Not sure who you are asking, but I have the utmost respect for other religious beliefs and find many Asian religions intriguing.
In Christianity, we do not have prayer wheels, so I won’t speak as to their effectiveness in praying to the Buddha.

@KNOWITALL I’m aware that he had mental issues. The point is that there is someone who worships God through digital mean. Whether God would hear them is another story.

The idea of worship and prayers are man-made so regardless of the sources and forms they can grouped as prayers. I care about the format, so long as it’s correct it’ll pass, regardless of how others perceive it.

It makes as much sense as the prayers from anywhere, anyone or anything else.
