Data is more human the Spock
Debate Rounds (3)
This debate can either be really stupid or rather philosophical.
Stupid: Data is 0% biological human. He is an android. No human whatsoever. Spock, on the other hand, is 50% biological human. As basic math goes, 50% is more than 0%. Therefore, Spock is more human.
Smart: Is this debate about which is more human-like? If so, I believe that you could make a rather sufficient argument.
Either way, more of an argument is needed than the one sentence provided.
Of course, technically Spock is physically more human then Data, but while Spock is ashamed of his human side, Data believes human emotions to be the thing most desired, and while he will never be physically human I think at heart he is more human then Spock.
While Data wishes to be human, and desires human emotions, he does not have those. Spock, on the other hand, has emotions and feelings (though he doesn't care to admit it haha). Either way, Data does not have the capabilities to be human, while Spock has the full capabilities to be human.
To me, the only time Spock shows his human side is when he loses control of his emotions. Data, on the other hand, is always trying to improve himself, and take the best things about people and and integrate them into his life.
While Spock refuses to accept his human side, saying that he refuses to accept it still means that he has it. Even if he tries to ignore it does not make it go away. The government ignores the national debt, but it sure as hell is still there. Ignorance and refusal to accept does not make it any less true.
Therefore, I firmly believe that Spock is more human than Data.
