Is artificial synonymous with man-made ? Jay 11:59, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)

"3. A living, self-conscious being, as distinct from an animal or a thing; a moral agent; a human being; a man, woman, or child." That says Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary. --Vikingstad 20:57, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Page listed on Wikipedia:Votes for deletion from Feb 23 to Feb 24. Discussion:

  • Artificial human companions - Apart from being very NPOV, the article really does not say anything and does not appear to be expandable in its current form. Darkcore 05:08, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. Article with lot of potential. Jay 08:16, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep and list on cleanup. Could improve -- Graham :) 11:14, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep and move to cleanup. There is no article in Wiki for 'companion animals' (not the same as 'pets'), and there is also considerable effort going on in AI to improve the quality of computer-human interaction. Denni 19:17, 2004 Feb 23 (UTC)
    • Keep - really needs to be rewritten, but the topic is interesting. Seth Mahoney 19:48, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Darkcore, I think you POV, not NPOV, right? Anyway, it's laughable as an article. I personally don't think it's worth keeping around until someone someday perhaps gets around to turning it into a real article. No one yet has seemed so inclined. Delete. —Frecklefoot 20:59, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)
      • Oops, I meant POV. Sorry for the confusion. Darkcore 22:11, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep but not with this content :0)AY 05:25, 24 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete. I agree with Denni and Seth that we might have an article on this, but the current content is not in any way useful for doing so, so delete. Andre Engels 13:09, 24 Feb 2004 (UTC)
    • Rewritten and annotated. Denni 18:43, 2004 Feb 24 (UTC)


Why is the word "emotions" in reference to animals in quotation marks? Is there any real doubt that at least some animals have emotions?

(# 206.106.73.36)
  • Unfortunately, this is still a lively discussion among those who claim to have knowledge in the field. I personally hold that animals have feelings, and it has been said for as long as I can remember that emotions such as fear and hate stem from the reptilian brain. My guess is that seeing emotions in animals is not just anthropomorphic, and eventually the pro-emotion people will be vindicated. Denni 18:36, 2004 Oct 16 (UTC)
