"Hi-de-ho everybody. This is Michael Jay Busybody in the laboratory of Dr Farrago Twaddle, inventor of the notorious computerized robot with the ability to recall and analyze the Bible and many associated books. Thank you Dr Twaddle for inviting me into your lab to view this most extraordinary invention of yours. I assume this is your robot then?"
"Indeed it is Mr Busybody. This is Doctor Whiz. Doctor Whiz, say hello to our guest."
"Good evening Mrr rrr rr. Buzzzzybody."
"And a very good morning to you as well Dr Whiz."
"You'll have to excuse Doctor Whiz Mr Busybody. He still has trouble keeping his times straight. You know how it is."
"I do indeed Dr Twaddle. I often have the same problem myself. If I may, there's a question I'd like to ask of you Dr. You refer to your robot as Doctor Whiz. I assume the title is one in jest? How did you come about giving him.... or should I say, it, the title Doctor?"
"Doctor Whiz prefers you refer to him as human Mr Busybody. He doesn't realize he's less than a man. The title of Doctor is not an honorary one by any means. Doctor Whiz has successfully passed the tests of three of the largest Bible colleges in the country and is fully accredited as an authority of the Bible, as well as other subjects such as homemaking and basket weaving. He is now working on his doctorate in ichthyology and Evolution, if he can just overcome his aversion to spiders and bugs."
"That is indeed interesting Dr Twaddle. And will I have the opportunity to observe your masterpiece at work?"
"Certainly Mr Busybody. Ask Doctor Whiz anything you like concerning the Bible and he will give you the accurate and complete answer. Go ahead, challenge the master."
"Very good. Let me see now, what would be a good test for someone of Doctor Whiz's status. Ok Doctor Whiz, when God commanded Moses to return to Egypt to set the Jews free, Moses gave an excuse. What was his excuse and what was God's reaction?"
"You beginnnn your investigation with eazzzzzzy questions Mr Buzzzz zzzz zzzybody. The answer to your question can be found in the forthhhh chapppter of Exxxx xxxx xodus. Mozzzzz zzes said he could not ssssspeak well, to which God became angry and sssaid to go anyway. Doessss that answer your qqqquestion Mr Buzzz zzz.... Michael J.?"
"Yes it does Doctor Whiz. Ok my Bible expert friend, answer me this. Jesus said that in order to be His disciple a person must give up his life, take up the cross and follow Him. What does He mean when He says a person has to take up the cross?"
"What does it mean Mr Buzzzz zzybody? Mean? Mean does not compute. I have been programmmmed to deal with facts Mr Buzzzybody, not meanings or anything dealing wiiiiith works. I'm sorrry Mr Buzzzzybody. Please reword your qqqquestion."
"I'm sorry Mr Busybody. You see, I've yet to program into Doctor Whiz the ability to understand concepts, or to think for himself. He only knows what he's been taught. You understand I'm sure."
"I believe I do Dr Twaddle. And you say your robot holds doctorates from three of the Bible colleges, yet he doesn't have the ability to reason or to think for himself? I find that very interesting."
"You see Mr Busybody, although Doctor Whiz is capable of many human endeavors, he's not quite human in regards to dealing with the Bible and subjects related to the Spiritual. He knows a great deal, but his experiences and his ability to understand meanings is limited. In this way he's not quite human."
"On the contrary Dr Twaddle, from my experiences with the clergy, I would say Doctor Whiz is very human, very human indeed."
9Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? 10Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? 11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 12If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? (John 3:)
11And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: 12That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; (Mark 4:)
3But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?..... Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Mat 15:)
