Post Could robot scientists be politically incorrect?

"He can come up with a hypothesis, plan an experiment, reason about the results, and then plan his next steps.

Now ADAM is the first robot - but maybe not the last - to have independently discovered new scientific information, according to scientists who recently built themselves the mechanical colleague.

ADAM quickly set to work, formulating and testing 20 different hypotheses. The robot eventually identified the genes that code for enzymes involved in yeast metabolism - a scientific first for a robot."

It isn't rocket science to prove the nonsense of politically correct pseudo-science. A robot could be made that would conclude Darwinism makes more sense than Lysenkoism or Creationism. Would such robots be insulted as "racists" or their inhuman status be considered proof of their invalidity in making conclusions that affect our views on humanity?

Can't decide if this is cool, epic, legendary or awesome.
