    That’s right–we have no free will; we are under the control of our things. We aren’t responsible for driver error in an auto accident, our vehicle caused the accident. By the way, I didn’t enter this comment, my lap-top did. This isn’t my opinion, it’s my lap-tops.’

        Yes sir, I completely agree. Being inanimate objects, they are completely lacking any kind of intelligence.

        So, which would you say is more stupid: The vehicle he was driving or the gun he was shooting?
