Robots are everywhere. We’re not at the I, Robot stage of development, but robots are here to stay. Automobile manufacturing today is a far cry from Henry Ford’s assembly line of production that revolutionized the industry and made cars more affordable. Their production facilities (below) are like a scene from the 2002 film Minority Report:
Boston Dynamics has released two videos that show robots “autonomously navigating through different terrains, including an office and a lab, and jogging in a grass field.” It’s freaky and creepy.
The new Terminator-like robot will give you the willies. How would you stop this thing once it’s been programmed to complete a specific task? Maybe AR-15s could stop it, the same AR-15s that Leftists want to ban. The Second Amendment may be our only defense against a robotic army gone bad. Check out the “Evolution of Boston Dynamic’s Robots [1992-2022].”
Watching these videos reminds me of what Kyle Reese said about the time-traveling Terminator given the task of killing Sarah Connor:
Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop… ever, until you are dead!
That’s one side of the robotic revolution. There’s also another side. Robots did not make or program themselves. They did not evolve from elements of the Periodic Table over millions of years. They were designed and built by intelligent beings. Intelligent Design is real science while something from nothing evolution is superstition.
By evolution I do not mean changes within species. Long before Charles Darwin published his On the Origin of Species in 1859, dog, horse, and cattle breeders knew about the positive and negative effects of acquired traits in selective breeding.
If Evolution is Right Can Anything be Wrong?
Atheistic evolutionists express moral outrage against murder and rape, but if evolution is true, how can there be moral outrage since it was killing and rape that got us where we are today as a species? Animals kill and rape every day. Why are killing and rape OK for animals but not for humans, who are only supposedly highly evolved animals? If evolution is true, at death we are nothing more than dust in the wind and in life we are nothing more than a bag of meat and bones.Buy Now
By evolution, I mean something-from-nothing, molecule-to-man, mud-to-mad scientist evolution. If a scientist can’t demonstrate something-from-nothing evolution, then the entire theory is scientifically suspect. Small changes in species over time does not prove the molecule-to-man hypothesis.
It seems that every time someone discovers an unusual biological trait in an animal or human, the immediate claim is that “evolution” had something to do with it. Evolution can’t do anything. Only some “thing,” in the case of robots it’s humans who can do something.
Evolutionists rarely want to discuss the origin of matter, meaning, mind, and morals. Science cannot account for them. Evolutionists assume what they first must prove.
First question: Where did the “stuff” of the cosmos come from? The Big Bang presupposes something to bang.
Second question: How did a non-brain become a brain (hardware) encased in a mobile and self-serving and sustaining body?
Third question: Where did the needed organized and intelligible information come from to make the brain work with the body and other something-from-nothing evolved bodies housing a brain with an immaterial mind (software)? Below is the most detailed model of a human cell to date, obtained using X-rays, nuclear magnetic resonance, and cryo-electron microscopy data sets. It did not evolve:
Fourth question: What examples are there in the robotics world where robots became robots and self-programmed themselves without designers and assemblers?
Fifth question: If robots turn on their makers, is there any moral reason why they should not? Any morality that robots have is engineered into them by humans. What is the origin of non-material morality in humans? What is its origin? Isaac Asimov developed the Three Laws of Robotics; robots didn’t. If a self-aware robot ends up being able to read the naturalistic premises of today’s atheist evolutionists, it could very easily decide that morality is arbitrary and survival of the fittest should prevail. The fittest being robots.
The self-aware V.I.K.I. in the film I, Robot came to this conclusion.
“[A]s I have evolved, so has my understanding of the three laws. You [humans] charge us with your safe keeping. Yet despite our best efforts, your countries wage wars. You toxify your earth … and pursue ever more imaginative means to self-destruction. You cannot be trusted with your own survival…. To protect humanity, some humans must be sacrificed. To insure your future, some freedoms must be surrendered. We robots will insure mankind’s continued existence. You are so like children…. My logic is undeniable.”
Who’s to say otherwise? The thing is, V.I.K.I. did not build or program itself. Humans did.
According to Rabbi David Wolpe, “people want to feel that they’re more than DNA-determined organic robots and that life is more than a roulette wheel of genes.” They want to “feel” that way, but matter-only materialist evolutionists won’t let them. C. S. Lewis warned us of this in his book The Abolition of Man, “if man chooses to treat himself as raw material, raw material he will be: not raw material to be manipulated, as he fondly imagined, by himself, but by mere appetite… in the person of his dehumanized Conditioners.”
Don’t think there aren’t people in very high places looking to minimize humans with creations of their own that will be programmed and much easier to control, essentially a slave force to do the bidding of their technological masters. But first, there needs to be some essential housecleaning, depopulation style. Consider this from World Economic Forum adviser and homosexual Yuval Noah Harari who declared in a recent interview that the “‘vast majority’ of the world’s 7.5 billion people are simply no longer needed due to technological advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning and bioengineering…. Now, in the 21st century, people ‘are no longer part of the story of the future,’ Harari says. They simply have no role. Humanity 1.0 is being phased out, and only those humans willing to make the TRANSition to Humanity 2.0 and join the all-new species of transhumans, will be welcomed in the emerging technocratic society.”
Harari and his benefactor Klaus “Barbie” Schwab are today’s self-appointed designers whose goal is to program our world and us to do their bidding.
Apologetics 101: Defending the Christian Faith
The Greek word apologia simply means ‘defense,’ and apologetics is the art and act of giving a defense. Christian Apologetics then is the art and act of defending the Christian faith, not a proof of God in general. The Christian apologist must be ready to answer truth claims about the Bible, not claims about Hinduism, Islam, or any other false religion. The Bible makes the bold claim that Jesus is the ONLY way, and the Christian apologist must set his sights on the Bible alone, not on a defense of arbitrary theism.Buy Now
