Nancy is now firmly embedded on my list of "authors always worth reading regardless of whether I agree with them... though I often do"

Rodney Brooks of MIT insists that a human is a “big bag of skin full of biomolecules” reducible to physics and chemistry. “When I look at my children, I can, when I force myself, … see that they are machines.” Yet is that how he treats them? Of course not. “I give them my unconditional love,” he says, while admitting that love has no “rational analysis” within his worldview. Robots don’t love. Brooks’s materialism is too small to account for his own behavior. Though his worldview says he is a machine made in the image of matter, his humanity keeps telling him he is made in the image of God.

Agreed.  Her books Total Truth (apologetics) and Saving Leonardo (culture) are must reads.
