Computer Power and Human Reason - Joseph Weizenbaum
Give the Amazon reviews a look.
If you would like to read something that directly addresses your question and perhaps put your mind at ease, pick up a copy of Computer Power and Human Reason. It's an old-ass book, but that makes the assertions put forth all the more compelling.
The book addresses this same topic: to what extent is computer "thought" like human "thought", and what are the dangers of equating these concepts? Like any book about AI written in the 70's, there are some things that are obviously out of date or wrong, but overall it holds up quite well. There's also a section on "compulsive programmers" that may cause some self-reflection among this crowd: https://www.sac.edu/AcademicProgs/Business/ComputerScience/P...
