^ Please don't take this the wrong way, but...you can't reduce everything Data says, does or feels to "his programming". Remember, Data is a sentient being, and so he should be accorded all the respect and consideration that any other life form would. Besides, as I said before, you can't prove Data is solely controlled by programming any more than WE would be. If you want proof that Data's thoughts and desires don't arise from programming? Prove that YOURS don't. umm....ew?
