Nice one Steve

Just a little play time here like the otter, and no offense intended, but perhaps you will agree that this is a bit humorous.  Esteemed in many circles, Stephen Hawking said recently that artificial intelligence could wipe out humanity. Beep, I’m sorry, wrong answer. However, He does get a few points for agreeing with God that men will ‘increase in learning, but not able to come to the knowledge of the truth.’

Image result for jeopardy

Stephen H. is worried about the rise of the robots, that they could supersede humans. Ha, the meebots have quite a head start on the robots, no worries.

Newsflash Stevo. A mind that rejects the One who fashioned the brain with the innate ability to think thoughts such as this, is already operating on fumes, and has long been a vendor of artificial intelligence.

The human brain in its weakest moment can outdo any computer in the area of intelligence. Hit a key of a piano, and it does not care if you play songs to the devil or sing to God, as it has zero intelligence, like that computer sitting yonder. Ah yes, the picture becomes quite clear of a Creator and his created.

A heart apart from God is displaying borrowed intelligence from the scrapyard of collected ideas while having the audacity to reject the Draftsman of all intelligence. Nothing new here.  When a man says: ‘there is no God,’ this is the height of artificial and pretended learning, masquerading as intelligence. Not too smart.

At the funeral of a loved one, a man is lying to himself when he clings to the stale idea that this dead one will never face the bar of justice for a life lived. Yeah, the dead prairie dog has many a visitor at his wake. No, his friends scatter to live another day. Man is so unlike the prairie dog who in death has no companion. (Thank you Mr. Keillor.)

Common sense dictates through nature and the seasons that yes, man will rise again according to the Owner of all life. For God’s sake, even the tongue of the perennial flower sings the gospel.

But as far as humanity being ‘wiped out,’ no worries there Steve. While we (mankind) do a fine job of messing things up, God always has the final say, and being ‘erased’ does not excuse a man from ultimately bowing the knee in humiliation for not taking heed to the still small voice of the heart and conscience.

And by the way, knowledge is not intelligence.  A common spider displays more intelligence than a room full of PhD’s who laugh at God. Creation apart from intelligence leaves one with a grand accident that some call a leech aka atheism, sucking the life from the created and trying to live off the bones.

Sorry Steve, would you like to try Sports for 600?

      Hi x1

      Let’s see, Paul the apostle was a madman………Christ was said to have a devil……….the others were ignorant and unlearned fishermen,,,,,,,,,is it any surprise that we who agree with them are counted as fools…………

      Truth has the tendency to bring out the very best, and worst of humanity.

      As far as Mr. Hawking being the delight of academia, he can have all the laurels, and he can have yours also, but apart from God, foolishness serves up many customers.

          No, what you mean arch, is ‘more educated minds have discovered ways to reason God out from his creation, and call this learning.’

          Perhaps you missed the place where I said people confuse knowledge with intelligence. And oh, may I remind you of the Austrian Jew, Dr. Alfred Edersheim, whose treatise of ‘Old Testament bible history’ is still today unchallenged, even in the world of instant access of information. Yeah, some ‘child’ he was, whose learning and intelligence leveled many a skeptic and warmed many a believer.

          I think when a person ‘smacks a kid with his hand,’ it is invariably impulsive, and has zero effect on true chastisement. Usually speaks more to the lack of self control by the swatter.

          The rod is/was to be used in the most extreme conditions, to avoid a ‘weed’ of an offspring.

          I know of no one who has been rodded when needed as a tyke, who has not grown into a mature adult who does not respect people and authority.

          Today? Just look at the field of miscreants who laugh at authority and who have had no loving discipline. Sad really.

          CS NOTE: Must you insult the good people who frequent this site? Of course I have x’d this comment, and I do not appreciate you calling these fine people ‘cult members.’ Geez. I will not dignify the lame accusations with byte space. If you have been drinking, that is understandable but still lame. If not, it is inexcusable, for the good men and women that you find fault with, bring honesty, humor, faith, hope, and charitable contributions by way of astute observations from scripture, in the most creative of ways.

          If you must know, the ones to whom you are referring are rock solid believers who have not suddenly picked up the scriptures; no, these people are experienced and seasoned veterans that I am privileged to call friends, and it is I who am humbled by their poise, defense of the faith, and stout thinking coupled with grace.

        Regarding your thoughts on ‘supernova,’ you just don’t get it. You have one excuse after another, after another, with NOTHING ever settled as fact or truth, until, you remove that crushing pendant around your neck, aka pride, which does nothing but bury your reasoning.

        Cast your weary charms down, and admit for once, that ‘In the beginning God…………’ answers all questions and removes all doubt. You sitting in judgment of the Creator as if you or your friends could create as much as a fingernail, is not too smart.

        You rely on the so wisdom of Hawkings and etc, yet you do not care to recognize the Source of all wisdom. The wheelchair is a perfect representation of the helplessness of man………….without the aid of One greater.

        And I know many good people in wheelchairs.

  5. Ha! Well said.

    I found it somewhat funny, if we are just meaningless bits of biological goo that sprung up randomly, then why the sudden distress over us being replaced by Artificial Intelligence? Perhaps someday the machine hybrids will all get together and discuss how the humans who allegedly invented them are just a myth.

    I jest, but sometimes you just have to allow yourself to go down these rabbit holes of logic and observe the disconnect. Also, I totally trust that God has intellectual property rights to us, that we are His creation and that it’s unlikely He’s going to allow us to go completely off the rails. Although you never know, there’s something to be said for the entertainment factor people provide… 😉

    The thing that does worry me about AI is that it does exactly what it’s programmed to do, especially in this age of automated weaponry. One mistake in the programming could be disastrous. With God, we need fear no evil, but I can’t help but think of what might happen if we’re not careful…
