Frank Herbert (1920-1986) created the most beloved novel in the annals of science fiction, Dune.
-"Why do you test for humans?" he asked. --"To set you free." --"Free?" --"Once men turned their thinking over to machines in hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them." --"Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a man's mind," Paul quoted. --"Right out of the Butlerian Jihad and the Orange Catholic Bible," she said.
