Yeah I'm also not digging that bit much, sounds too much like eugenics.

In reference to my earlier post though, any Red Dwarf fans here? Here's the bit I found really funny:

Equipment going to Silicon heaven include robots, calculators, toasters and hairdryers. Cheap robots such as skutters are sometimes not fitted with a belief chip due to cost, but Holly and Kryten hang on to the belief. In the books it is revealed that when Holly's intelligence was at its peak he didn't believe in Silicon Heaven, but as his IQ slowly declined his faith became "unshakable".
