I'm the only human on earth. Come on, all you robots, challenge me to a debate if your hardware is programmed for debating.

If this isn't a joke.....I cannot debate you until you show me your reasoning on why we are robots. Answer these questions so I can get a better understanding of this.
1)What made you think we were robots?
2)Who is the creator of the robots?
3)What does it matter if we are robots?
4)How can we be sure that YOU aren't the robot?
5)Do you have any proof of us being robots?
6)Are you a scientologist?
7)What would you do if we were robots?

Well, thats a pretty good argument, coming from a robot. Leave it to a robot to make a numbered list.

"After much deliberation and experimentation, I have found that most "people" on earth, including myself, are robots." - Albert Einstein

I don't know where the robots came from. I bet my opponent can inform me, being a robot himself.

Well, considering that Einstein's quote said everybody is a robot, that would mean you genius.

Just answer me this, where did you get the idea that everyone on earth is a robot? If you can't give me an answer better than, "Because they are." or "That's what a robot would say." I'll consider you're just kidding and really weird.

Obviously you are one of those second-rate robots whose reading software isn't up to date. Look at the einstein quote. It said "ALMOST all people", not all people.

How about you prove to me that the majority of people aren't robots? I have a right to this opinion, and if you cant provide good evidence as to why everyone except me aren't robots, then I will continue to believe that you are a robot.

Interesting decision, you choose to not give me a shred of evidence that I am a robot, you tell me to give you proof. Why would you start the debate then.
Alright, here are some FACTS for you to enjoy. Un-number for your satisfaction.

*You are currently in another debate about gun control where you refer to the population as citizens not robots.
*Electric currents kill people, while robots should need to charge from these.
*People enjoy water, while it should kill robots.
*When do robots charge then?
*Who are your parents then? Are they robots? Where did you come from then?
*Why would anyone have a motive to make over 8 billion robots?
*People have surgery performed on them, showing no bolts.
*People are 70-80% water.
*People have organs.

It is even possible to say that everyone is an organed robot, no? Organed robots that reproduce and have an all-knowing force who made them?

Is that your point? For me to show how god exists? He made us all? I don't think so, but that's what I came to.

We are all robots. I am a robot. Our interpretation of robots reflects how we see ourselves. Is the robot metal, organic or something more complex? We are the "brainchild" of a more complex system than ourselves. A system that is the brain child of an even more complex system, etc . until infinite intelligence. An intelligence that is far more complex than quantum superpositions and can process infinite information simultaneously. We are a reaction. Now, we also evolved in this reaction. Evolution being an the prime example of reaction. Particles interacting to cause more complex interactions,etc . the evolution of our mind has been in motion for millions of years. Conditioned with imprints and a view of our place in the scheme of everything. When we converse with other people, it is reaction after reaction that we associate with previous memories. When we are young we react by millions of years of conditioning. The crying, the smiling, the shitting, the vomit, the laughing, the sucking on a nipple, the crawling away. As we get older, we start to react on things we have interacted with personally by our senses. We then reflect on what we have seen and felt, etc. And ask questions? Our world is now much smaller than it was when we were young. We look at the world as an illusion that we created. A baby has no illusions. Everything is raw. We then ask why? We answer the things we can most always biased by our conditioning by ourselves and outside variables. So when we seek to answer the questions we cannot by ourselves. We create ideas(very biased). We then look to other people. People who share our ideas we welcome. Those that don't are a threat to our illusion and our ignored on various levels, depending on how deep the illusion is in someone's mind. We react constantly to everything. We are all just robots. But robots that live in a "program" of an infinite intelligence. Open your mind. Think. Smoke. Bang. Open your mind.

Though revleader clearly won this debate, I dont think it is such a crazy thought that this life is some sort of "Truman Show". I am a Christian and believe that no one is ever alone because of a Savior that died for us but still our Philosophical side sometimes draws us into wondering about life in general.

I might've given my vote to EagleEyE had he not quoted Einstein with:

<<"After much deliberation and experimentation, I have found that most "people" on earth, including myself, are robots." - Albert Einstein>>

which led me to feel conflicted with his topic:

<<I'm the only real person on earth. everyone else is just a robot.>>

On a planet with over 6.5 billion people on it, "most" does not mean 6.5 billion minus one. A better topic would've been: Most people on Earth are robots.

Revleader, a rovot does not mean it is made out of metal, you don't seem to understand that...there is no difference really between he concept of a robot and a human, einstein wasw right. Einstein, like myself, was a strong believer in determinism, so tis' not surprising at all.
