Seriuosly, humanity, like all life, is a creation of science.  I see no
difference except in degree, of the conciousness of a machine or a
person.  As a member of the top tribe on this planet (homo sapiens) I
would want to protect people against extermination by other concious
beings, and therefore would restrict the rights of non-biological
entities, but only from selfish self-preservation reasons, not because I
felt superior.
