Yes, sorry, but one of the things with stroke-induced aphasia is short memory syndrome.  I don't remember your story.  In fact, I have to deliberately struggle with memory issues all the time.

Oof. This is a tough one, because to answer you have to first define what makes humans, well, human.    Honestly (and unfortunately), I would say no. Animals also have brains, but that doesn

Serves you right for creating the situation that requires the question to be answered! 😆

OK, here's my take as a software developer.  It's a long one.   Android / artificial "brains" are not like human brains.  They are not sentient.  In fact, when you start breaking down sentie

Cool premise, Suspensewriter.  

 

Claire & Amosathar, you already wrote what I was thinking.  I agree with that.

 

Suspensewriter, if your android originated from a human, then I would think that it would have a soul and spirit that could seek after God and become saved.  If your android's brain is synthetic, then I would say that it would not have a soul for being saved.

 

But maybe you don't have to answer this question!  You can present both sides (and more) and end your book in such a way that it is up to the reader to wonder and decide what happened to the android after death.  It's a good debate.
