Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to B.K.'s discussion Can Atheists feel comfortable in a Unitarian Universalist setting?
"That does sound rather more religious than most Unitarians I've known. In the nineteenth century they were among the most liberal of religious organizations. There were a number of distinguished Unitarians in American history—John…"

"To me this looks similar to some parts of Ecclesiastes. I always thought that was existentialist and depressing at the same time."

Compelledunbeliever replied to Dr. Allan H. Clark's discussion Wisdom of Solomon

According to something I found online, the conversation between the robot and its creator is actually in Penrose's Shadows of the Mind, pgs 179-190.  The creator is "Albert Imperator".
