Do not think that the machine-consciousness challenge is too hard. It is not. I look forward to hearing from you.

Actually, there's a conscious machine running this forum and it produces trolling answers to any post concerning job-related issues in the lounge where such things are strictly forbidden.

@OP: Unlike reproducing biologically, creating mechanical intelligence requires actual intelligence on the part of the creator. Do you qualify as an intelligent being?

You know if we took every dumbass we can find, place them on an island and let them co-exist and gradually eliminate each other a few major crisis will be averted.

Population Control.
Major economy boost because state funds will be freed and can be used to productivity.
Technology would rapidly advance.
Our country's education rating would increase
Job market will skyrocket as unemployment would be almost non-existent.

I think we should just change the reproduction process to require intelligence to reproduce rather than just horomones. It will accomplish the same thing.

This sounds like artificial intelligence- but the only thing you could possibly accomplish would be artificial stupidity.
