Is this an example of giving too much credence to words? 

The only thing concerning with the description 'biological machine' is individual interpretation. Personally, I know I cannot know what a human being is in totality, so this type of being is going to be described and redescribed with out end throughout, their existence.

Humans certainly have machine-like aspects..wait a minute...machines were created by humans...hmm...there may be a connection here, somewhere.
