We talked about the view on how humans and all other organisms are no different than computers. Each organism has characteristics according to its DNA, just like a computer functions according to its software. The ethical issue to this was how people would respond if they were being classified similarly to a computer, a nonliving entity. People practicing a religion would most likely be opposed to this philosophy and believe that there are characteristics that separate us from nonliving matter; however, some individuals may not feel offended at all and feel that there are features that we share with computers.
