Thinking!

profilemcbride1051

 After presenting his paper to a group of young scientists, Alan Turing is challenged by one who immediately says, "Yes, but that's not REAL thinking! Machines can't REALLY think." 

How might he respond to this challenge? What is the questioner trying to argue? What does Turing's likely response tell us about the concept of "thinking?"

Do not give dictionary, wikipedia, or other online definitions. I want to see your words and ideas. Your answer must be at least 200 words in order to receive credit. 

Required: 200-500 word minimum, proper grammar, spelling, and answering the questions/prompt as closely as you can. Points are taken off for obvious last-minute superficial commentary, not answering the specific questions posed, not following directions, too short length, as well as spelling and grammar issues.
