The subject of believers and those who actively oppose them is only tangential to this blog. However, anyone exposed to cutting edge technonology, futurism, and, especially, transhumanism and enhancement will eventually run across at least one fundamental atheist.
George Dvorsky, transhumanist and anti-theist, has published his review of a movie called “The Jesus Camp.” In fact, he titled the post, “The Jesus Camp and the art of Brainwashing Children.”
As interesting as it is that Mr. Dvorsky discusses the mimetic convergence of Islam and Christianity rather than noting the divergence(since both teach that we can trace our history back to Abraham and his God), I was stirred to post from the gallery of the Senate of the Texas Legislature by this remark of one of the visitors to the site:
The best news, however, is that AI, when it is invented, will be immune to religion; I suspect it this will remain true even if the AI is designed by a deeply religious person. (anyone agree/disagree?) And what’s the likelihood of a religious person being the maker of the first AI? Are there many christian AI programmers?
