When robots become more human, Will people push so they can share our rights?
Eldershire

Con

No matter how advanced robots may become, They are just piles of metal and silicon. They won't really have the feelings of humans or animals. At least, It's not likely.

At the simplest form, The brain is a supercomputer, And the nervous paths are wires.

Our brain is programmed (by the process of evolution) to sense pain, Feel empathy, And feel things in general. Who's to say that we couldn't program a robot with a similar brain to ours and then give a similar hardware (body) to us? It could sense pain, Feel sad, E. T. C.

"They are just piles of metal and silicon. "
Well at our base we are just piles of carbon and water, We are all just organic robots.

Con

As we know, Carbon is the basic building block of life, And we have never seen a creature made of anything else. Why? Likely because it's not possible.

"The brain is a supercomputer" yes, The brain is essentially a computer, But thousands of years ahead of where we are in technology.
