Well, if you want to take this into the realm of writing style,
then we're delving into something I'm qualified to be anal about. =^>

* Never use two adjectives when one will do.

* Qualifiers don't strengthen a statement, they weaken it.

* Numbers confuse people.

"First Artificial Human Created" is superior, in my opinion.

Then we get into philosophy. When it's *your* project, never waste
time rebutting honest criticism you don't agree with; just thank
the critics for their input, and change nothing! =^>
