Artificial Intelligence Is The New Golden Calf

The contemporary concept of AI from God’s point of view is only more man-made ignorance, a 21st century version of the Golden Calf. It results from the ignorance of the plan of God that promises eternal life, far beyond what any man or machine can create. It is life in the Spirit. And it is available today. No need to wait.

The definition of the adjective artificial is something made or produced by human beings rather than occurring naturally i.e., by the Creator, often as a copy of something natural. In this case, it would be man’s attempt to achieve immortality, which already is made available by Christ through the Spirit of God. This is the underlying premise of the Christian era as it pertains to the foundational Christian principles of the resurrections and eternal judgment, to life or to death. There are no immortal souls going off to “Heaven,” or Hell for that matter. Even the pope has declared there is no "Hell." [See the Feature articles, Heaven Can Wait and Heaven Can Wait II].  

However, some folks have decided to make their own god. It’s an ancient pursuit for sure, albeit one with an abysmal track record of failure. [AI godbot; see Rev. 13:5]. What is rather amusing is the sales pitch. This new "AI godbot" will be designed to be "kind and not punish mortals." Yes, just a quick glance at events in the world shows us that we mortals already punish other mortals to the nth degree. So, there's no need for a creating a god who would do that. Left out of this equation is the fact that if we followed the word of God, life would be much better for all of us. But we don't, so we're told we'll be given a benevolent robot instead. However, whose values of good and evil will be implanted into the bene-bot for our daily guidance? There is one caveat. We are told that if we don't go along, then "as many as would not worship the image of the beast [that has life and speaks] should be killed." It seems like the promised AI benevolence is a tad overrated.

In an article by Paul Joseph Watson, editor at large for Infowars, he wrote, “Documents uncovered as part of a separate court case reveal that multi-millionaire Silicon Valley elitist Anthony Levandowski started a religion based around the concept of worshipping artificial intelligence as a God. The goal of the religion is to “develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence,” in line with the species reaching the singularity, the point at which computers surpass humanity in intelligence.” [AI god].

Given the chaotic state of world affairs these days and the lack of sanity being exhibited by so many on the world stage, especially in relation to the wholesale firing off of nukes at one another, surpassing human intelligence may be achieved by the surviving natural cockroaches rather than any benevolent AI machine people.

The concept of worshiping AI as a god, little g, technology aside, is no different than worshiping the Golden Calf. And it will have the same result. [Exodus 32]. In fact, it is a bit of regression in that it is a step lower than worshiping the Sun or a tree, both creations of the Creator. This all smacks of idol worship wrapped up in new technology. It is an awkward, cumbersome, vain labour attempt, doomed to failure at immortality compared to what is offered to us by Christ.

Also, the one big flaw in the AI immortality scheme is that this Earth and everything in it is going bye-bye. “And I saw a new heaven and a new Earth: for the first heaven and the first Earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” [Rev. 21:1; see the Sneakers article, No More Oceans]. So any Earthbound grasp at immortality is doomed to failure. Therefore, this artificial attempt at immortality doesn’t seem to be too intelligent in its approach.

Watson goes on to say in his article, “Ray Kurzweil’s 1999 book The Age of Spiritual Machines describes the technocratic elite’s plan to become super beings by augmenting their bodies, eventually to the point where an entire consciousness can be uploaded to a computer.” [And when that computer crashes? Oopsy, there goes Bob.]

“We’re going to become increasingly non-biological to the point where the non-biological part dominates and the biological part is not important anymore,” said Kurzweil in 2013. “In fact the non-biological part – the machine part – will be so powerful it can completely model and understand the biological part. So even if that biological part went away it wouldn’t make any difference.”

Right, we can’t even figure out how the human body, much less the brain, works to prevent common diseases, but we’re going to create a machine that is “so powerful, it can completely model and understand the biological part … even if that biological part went away it wouldn’t make any difference.” This, however, does raise one vital question, where do they put the breath of life when all the biological parts are gone? [Gen. 2:7].

So, yes, the arrogant elites plan to become super beings, aka gods. This refrain sounds familiar. As we read in Daniel, “And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.” [Dan. 11:36].

But this power and authority is not man-made. “And they worshiped the dragon [Satan] which gave power to the beast [the elite of the elites]: and they [those without the Spirit of God] worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” [Rev. 13:4; AI Beastly Artwork, Suitable For Rothschild Manor].

So the elites may continue down this path until time is up. “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the Great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” {Rev. 18:2].

Then, the real God shall establish his kingdom here on Earth with those who have his Spirit as sons of God, attaining immortality in the first resurrection. These computerized super elites are wanting to reinvent a wheel that is destined to fail, and them along with it. It is interesting to note, too, that the English word computer, when using the alphanumeric progression of a=6, b=12, c=18, etc., adds up to 666.  

And as Watson astutely points out, “However, Kurzweil’s transhumanist utopia will probably not be available to the entirety of humanity but instead will be the domain of a wealthy aristocracy, creating yet another class system. Kurzweil admits this in his book, labeling those who refuse or are incapable of cyberrmetrically augmenting themselves as MOSHs – Mostly Original Substrate Humans.”

This is just another instance of arrogant men trying to create god in their own flawed image and likeness, and then running off in the wrong direction in their own bizarro world, impressed with their own artificial superiority. [See godbot]. God’s offer of immortality is available to all who seek first his kingdom, his eternal power and authority. And rather than the offer to be MOSH’s, we will be kings and priests in the kingdom of God, alive in the Spirit, no longer having a need for the flesh and/or cybermetric machines as the case may be.

“And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the Earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and has made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” [Rev 1: 5, 6]. “Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” [Rev. 20:6]. This will be until the great resurrection, when the new heaven and Earth are created.

As noted above, the fundamental concept lost on these “elite” godbot folks is that everything of this world is gonna disappear, poof!

The step up from the spirit of man is the Spirit of God with the emphasis on the Spirit, not computers and machines. Perfection is of the Spirit, not available in the material, mortal world. Perfection exists in dimensions not man-made, not of this universe. And perfection will not be attained until we have put off these mortal bodies for immortality in the Spirit. Yet with the Spirit of God giving life to our mortal bodies until the resurrection, we are to grow and mature in the word of God towards perfection daily in our lives. [See the Feature article, Brown Paint: Quantum Potentialities].

Therefore, those who have abandoned the true Creator think they have stumbled upon the magic elixir of eternal life, a human consciousness in a robot with replaceable parts. Yet, they leave out the spirit of man, given by God, that gives life to our mortal bodies, and brains. Without it, we are dead. “For as the body without the spirit [Greek, pneuma, breath] is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” [James 2:26]. Human consciousness ceases to exist. There can be no life in their cybermetric machines. The portal to their immortality lies on the other side of death’s door. Before they can attain immortality, they must first conquer death. As we know, "It is appointed for men to die once." [Heb. 9:27]. 

Compared to the truth of the word of God about this subject, they are digging the hole to perdition that much deeper. They are removing the very essence of life for humans, the spirit of man, thinking they can replace it with hardware and computer programs? [Homo Deus: Man As God].

God’s plan for us and what is available to us in this life is the Spirit of God which leads to eternal life when this entire planet and all that’s in it have long since passed, including cybermetric robots with brains. AI is a path to eternal death, not eternal life.

Of course, what AI misses is that we humans are much more than just “intelligence.” But for some, intelligence alone is god. And thus all their labour is in vain.

Where does this leave us with the baseline cause our human predicament, the knowledge of good and evil? AI without a sense of good, a sense of morality is a machine that is capable of immense destructive evil. Who then will decide this code of morality, what’s good, what’s evil? [See Pro. 14:12]. Therefore, if it is not of our Father in heaven, who does that leave?

We have a very clear path set before us to attain the immortality promised by our Father in Heaven. We just need to accept it.

“And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why do you call me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if you will enter into [eternal] life, get your consciousness into a computer.” Okay, that’s not what he told him. Christ said, “… keep the commandments. He said to him, Which? Jesus said, You shall do no murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, Honour your father and your mother: and, you shall love your neighbour as yourself.”

“The young man said to him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? Jesus said to him, If you will be perfect, go and sell that you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.”

“But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.” [Mat. 19:16-23].

No wonder these rich AI multi-millionaires want to go the artificial route. If they can’t muster up the moral character, and chose to rely on their money and intelligence, it appears they have no other choice. Their inability to walk the Godly path is reminiscent of what David wrote in Psalm 25. “He that has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down without walls.” [Pro. 25:28]. So much for a cybermetric utopia.

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.” Hmm, maybe that’s why they chose to go with machines and spare parts. No flesh and blood. But they miss the point.

“For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.” [1 Cor. 15:50, 53, 54].

And it is then that we will attain immortality, brought to us by our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ.

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” [1 Cor. 15:58].
