Robotic house helpers may still be a long way off but robots that can replace humans in hazardous environments are closer and closer to becoming a reality. Roboticists at Carnegie Mellon University are designing advanced robots for dull, dirty and dangerous jobs. VOA’s George Putic reports.

It's very unfortunate and disappointing that many scientists accept and believe that all these robbots are made by human(themselves), unfortunately they don't believe that human is a masterpiece of the almighty God, the creator of everything. Not only they deny the existence of a creator, but also they try to portray the unscientific theory of evolution in some imaginary sculptures, as some humanoid animals such as apes, some sort of monkey species are humans forefathers. When science itself says "seeing is believing" then why they don't see that for thousands of years, humans have been given birth by their very own parents who are also humans, not monkeys and these evolutionist so called scientists see that everyday by their own naked eyes, but still let's say blindly refutes this undeniable truth, while we have never seen such a evolutionary process in which a cell, a worm, then an insect, then a vertebrate animal, have gone through in order to become humans. These evolutionists base their claims on some bony remanants of some animals specially monkeys that are anatomically similar to the human anatomy, but they never think about the intellectual and spiritual differences that is very clear between them. As human since putting his step on this planet, in accordance with his intellectual power has changed his life and the face of the planet earth, has created civilizations. If Monkeys are considered as forefathers of humans, then show me a clear evidence that these monkeys have braught a very little change in their lives or the environment they live in. If according to the calim that these apes or monkeys are humans forefathers, then the dog is the forefather of the lion and tiger, likewise the cat must be the forefather of cheeta, also the mouse must be the forefather of the pig, the cock and hen are the parents of flying birds, because the first ones like the monkey remained unevolved, and the secondary ones evolved and became prefect. Evolution theory is nothing but to deviate people from the path to their eternal felicity. If you consider all other religions like christianity, you make a great mistakes. I'm inviting you to read the holy Quran, Muslims sacred and divine book, to find out that nothing can happen by a blind coincidence or chance, but everything is created by a supreme creator, God.
