    Will Christian Artificial Intelligences go to Heaven.

    Now that Sophia ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKrV2CVDXjo ) has been given Saudi citizenship, would the ultimate Turin test be when an AI says they believe Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for their sins. This beg two questions, can AI robots sin? (I think they can) and will they go to heaven? (I'm not 100% sure they won't).

    I find this to be one of strangest ideas I've ever seen. You seem to think that an entity created by sinful man and not God, and not containing the spark of life given by God, is something He will allow in heaven. Where you come up with this is beyond me. It most certainly isn't Biblical. Where does the Bible even hint that a machine manufactured by mankind will ever be taken to heaven? You're going to have a hard time justifying this Biblically.

    Just because AI may at some point mimic life, doesn't mean it is alive anymore than the serpents Pharoah's magicians manufactored were equal to the serpent God created out of Aaron's rod. The magician's serpents appeared to be the equal of God's creation but literally were not its equal as the one God created ate all of their's. Only God can give life. Humanity cannot.

    What you present is not a challenge.
    It is made up fiction and fantasy.

    Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

    GOD became mankind, and suffered and died to redeem mankind.

    GOD did not become computer-kind and die as a computer in order to redeem computers.

    AI-s are just _ out of luck.
    Jer 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD[YHVH], that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
    Jer 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he[the Branch] shall be called, THE LORD[YHVH] OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

    Yes, I'm beginning (IOW have always thought) these 'driods' are the work of the devil.

    These aren't the droids you're looking for.

    Silliness aside, computer programs are not alive. They are programmed to have the appearance of being alive, but a stone statue painted to look real is still a rock. In the same way, a computer program designed and programmed to look and sound like a human is still a computer program, no matter how good the imitation.
