Callister Raynes, “He said God could give a computer a soul if he wanted to. Do you think that’s true, Dad?”
(FYI, I was correct. He did say “Dad”)
Alan Mathison Turing 23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954) was an English computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist. Turing was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.
David Paetkau as Callister Raynes:
Right as Rain – Expression
In good order or good health, satisfactory, as in He was very ill, but he’s right as rain now , or If she’d only worked on it another week everything would have been as right as rain . The allusion in this simile is unclear, but it originated in Britain, where rainy weather is a normal fact of life, and indeed W.L. Phelps wrote, “The expression ‘right as rain’ must have been invented by an Englishman.” It was first recorded in 1894.
