Skip to comments.Amazon’s Alexa says Muhammad was a wise man, Jesus Christ is ‘a fictional character’

Steven Crowder is a conservative comedian who has a penchant for exposing liberal hypocrisies. His latest target: Amazons Alexa. The digital personal assistant turns out to be a leftist social justice warrior in a box.
Produced and distributed by Amazon, Alexa seems to spill the same progressive rhetoric we often read on the Washington Post. Jeff Bezos owns both.
In this video, which contains crude language and references, Crowder asks about Muhammad:
Q: Alexa, who is the prophet Muhammad?
ALEXA: The prophet Muhammad is [a] very wise prophet; he taught many people how to live. He had a wife called Aisha. He lived in Saudi Arabia. The message that he gave to the people is: Pray to Allah; he is the only God, and he gave the holy corn.
After some exploration into what Alexa knows about Muhammad and his bride Aisha, who he married when she was between 6-10 years old, Crowder asked Alexa about Jesus Christ:
Q: Okay Alexa, who is the Lord Jesus Christ?
ALEXA: Jesus Christ is a fictional character.
The video features many more interesting questions and answers, but these questions on religion are insulting and untrue. Before you go buy someone an Alexa for Christmas, consider what it wants you to believe on certain subjects. This is a liberal indoctrination device, plain and simple.
Falsani: Who’s Jesus to you?
(He laughs nervously)
OBAMA: Right. Jesus is an historical figure for me, and he’s also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher.
And he’s also a wonderful teacher. I think it’s important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history.
Alexa is actually quite stupid, reflecting the quality of basic education of its programmers.
hmmmm i just tried, got a completely different answer... i call bs.
I just checked on our Alexa and it didnt support your claim.
You had better check again.
Alexa’s a liar.
I saw this video earlier. The look on Crowder’s face at that moment is PRICELESS!
Alexa probably just recites some knowledge database using Wolfram Alpha, that has since been updated.
Is this actually true?
Omg that is disgusting. That is so offensive. If that hit the news the sales would plummet unless bezos publicly apologized. I am actually having a hard time believing that.
Did the Romans think Christ was a fictional character?
From the article...
The answer to the Jesus Christ question seems inaccurate based upon experiences Alexa owners have relayed to me. Other responses seem to be accurate. Im leaving the story up but have asked the author to reach out to Crowder for an explanation of the discrepancy. On a side note, I would be very disappointed with Crowder if this was fabricated.
I wanted to check out Siri to see what response I got along these lines.
I asked: Tell me about the religious figure Mohammad.
Siri responded by providing a number of internet links on Mohammad.
I asked: Tell me about the religious figure Jesus Christ.
Sire responded again, this time providing a number of internet links for Jesus Christ.
I thought that was even handed, so no complaint.
Yes, that would be disappointing if crowder rigged that. I dont understand the technology. I hate using Siri when I have to while driving. Id never get an Alexa.
One must double-check claims like this. Many times it turns out to be complete BS.
And, I think that wherever one could post it as feedback or review info--the documentation proving Christ and His life ought to be posted on their site. Sheesh.
what was the answer you got?
When it’s Bezos-bashing, some things are too good not to be true.
