I have been playing way to much fallout 4 but the game made me think what do you think about this topic.

I feel mixed because one it's a creation a product we made however one could say the same about children.

Do you think it's ethically wrong to deny said robots/androids rights because they were programmed and created by human hands?

I kind of do and don't wish that we get to this point in my lifetime it would be amazing to witness and see how humans react.

Maybe they do, however how can we be sure they are really experiencing consciousness?
What if they just emulate it without feeling anything?

does that really matter.

Consciousness is just a function of our brain and illusion.

I had a seizure where the parts in my brain that make us conscious were affected and my body walked and talked and did stuff on it's own without me ever experiencing or having memory of it etc.

Even if a robot was in a state like that and did not have consciousness would it not be wrong to not give it rights?
Consciousness is far from being understood so we could hardly judge if said robot could be experiencing consciousness or not.

So where do we draw the line between a tool that is self aware and a robot that has rights?

When does using a tool become slavery.

Do humans really deserve rights? I sometimes doubt if our race has intelligence or consciousness.

Yes. The problem is determining whether or not they're truly sentient.

the question is does humanity deserve their rights?

I suppose if they actually become sentient that deserves some recognition and respect.

I hope not, I'm still banking on being able to avoid dying alone by enslaving a kawaii AI girl.

Robots are better as tools than sentient beings. Why risk the robot uprising?

They may be sentient, but they'd be soulless, so no.
