How can we avoid building superstitious A. I. ?

Is superstition part of creativity, in the sense of creating explanations? Can you think of an entity that wouldn't need to go through stages of "childish" reasonning?

    Nov 4 2011: I believe there is nothing mystical about the human brain. Our consciousness is purely biomechanical, and, therefore, the likeness between humans and AI will know no bounds.

    Resultingly, the extinction or technological evolution of mankind is inevitable. There is no way in hell robots will not replace the traditional human.

    The only decision we CAN make is whether to become them or perish.

    But that's just my extreme opinion. ;)
