The Next Steps Toward an AI Techno-Deity

I’ve written many times about the coming anti-Christ, and how technology will play an important part in his rule over the current world system. I view the Bible as 100% accurate, and I think it should be believed. I see no contradiction between the Bible and our current reality. In fact, I see our current reality as verification of everything the Bible told us was coming.

There are a great many people who don’t share my view. I get that.

Most people, I would guess, are either totally unaware of what the Bible lays out, or have been misinformed about what the Bible actually says. These people could be classified as “ignorant of the Bible”. That’s not an insult; it’s just a assessment describing how all people start out – with any subject. (Until you know the facts about something, you’re ignorant of those facts.)

Fewer people are in another class: they are aware of what the Bible actually says, but choose to disregard it. They intentionally refuse to believe. These people are informed (not ignorant).

Far fewer people know what the Bible actually says (having read and understood), and believe it. To these people, my previous articles probably make sense.

Why? Does it have to do with understanding technological concepts? Not at all. The biggest factor, when dealing with Biblical subjects, is spiritual understanding. Believers have it; unbelievers struggle with it.

The Bible even mentions this phenomenon. “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Corinthians 2:14 ). The “natural”, earthly, unsaved world citizen just can’t get it. When they look at an obvious and clear spiritual truth (to a Christian), they see a dim, cloudy haze.

For that reason, I expect the simple things I’ve been pointing out to sail right over the world’s collective heads. And I expect all awakened children of God to immediately (independently) see these same things with bright clarity (as many of you already have pointed out to me).

With that in mind, I’d like to point out two additional things that have appeared on the horizon concerning the coming anti-Christ. Specifically, these are ways in which he will imitate the Lord – using technology, most likely. These are two steps towards an AI techno-deity – an AI god.

Knowing Your Thoughts
In at least six verses, the Bible tells us that Jesus knew what other humans were thinking. It’s plain from passages such as Luke 7:40 that he could read the inward thoughts of other people. The New Testament also tells us that the Lord “knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain”. We learn that the Word of God is a “discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.

God can read your mind. So it follows that the coming “anti-God” should be able to do so, as well, because he is a thief (John 10:10), a counterfeiter, and an imitator. He wants to replace the image of God (i.e. mankind) and wants to BE God. (He won’t succeed.)

But, you might say, “only God has the ability to read our thoughts”! Right: I agree. To be clear, I don’t think the devil has the ability to read minds now, nor will he actually have it in the future. Neither will the devil’s anti-Christ. That innate power is something only God can do.

However, as with some of the other imitated attributes of God that the anti-Christ will possess, he will be able to get close enough. I think that with the aid of technology, he will have “pseudo” mind-reading abilities. At the very least, the semblance of mind-reading will be enough to fool the vast majority of people. He will be able to do it via AI and possible other means – all technological. I know this, because it’s already been done.

An electronic artificial brain has been created that can read minds. This neural network isn’t perfect, but it’ll do until real mind-reading gets here. If you check out the link, you’ll see that the images it “mind-read” are distorted – yet recognizable. (Better than I can do on my own, for sure.)

[Not actual mind-reading machine.]
Objections to my point of view could be anything from “that’s not real mind-reading” to “it will never be used for evil purposes”. Someone might think “they’ll never develop the technology any further”. Maybe. But we can all agree that in recent years, technology has undergone some “mind-blowing” changes.

But in my view, this will probably become more refined until it’s quite accurate. And from what seen with other technologies, I bet it’s development goes further than imagined and gets used in ways not intended. Besides, the public is never shown the latest version of anything in press releases or news reports.

The deployment of this type of “mind-reading” AI technology fits right in with the coming anti-Christ.

Remember the following things about the false Christ…

  • He will appear as a man of peace, and people will think he is the Christ
  • He will do great signs and wonders, which will have the effect of fooling people
  • He will imitate the abilities of Jesus on earth

Make no mistake: people will welcome, adore, and worship the anti-Christ. They will love him. He will bring peace and do good. If you speak against him, people will look at you like you’re nuts. He’s going to be an imitator of Jesus in many ways, possibly including AI-enhanced mind-reading, and will dazzle the world so much that even the now-secular nation of Israel will think the Messiah has finally arrived.

At first. So…don’t be fooled.

Requiring Faith in His Followers
The second recent characteristic that I’ve realized the anti-Christ will require, in a roundabout way, is real faith in him. He will demand faith from people in many ways. The world will have to trust him, rely on him, listen to him, put their hope in him.(i.e. All the things people should do for and with Jesus.)

While it should be obvious to anyone familiar with the Bible that followers of the anti-Christ will put faith in him, there’s one particular new item that triggered a new perspective on this (for me). It was the revelation that some of the latest AI is incomprehensible, even to its creators.

In other words, the people who made the AI don’t even know how it does what it does!

I’ve mentioned this before, because it’s happened before with the Facebook chatbots. (Supposedly, the AI chatbots developed their own “language” that was undecipherable to humans and began communicating with each other.) I’ve also read similar sentiments expressed in other news items about AI. But for some reason this article piqued my interest even more: The Dark Secret At the Heart of AI.

Basically, engineers created an AI-powered self-driving car. It performs well – just like a human. But they have no clue how the AI trained itself, and they have no way to “ask” it. It works, but they can’t explain how. They just have to trust it.

They just have to put their faith in the AI.

And this isn’t stopping researchers from moving forward. “There is now hope that the same techniques will be able to diagnose deadly diseases, make million-dollar trading decisions, and do countless other things to transform whole industries.” You might ask, “what’s the big deal”? If it works, it works. Who cares how it works?

Imagine if this sort of mysterious, dark AI goes on to bigger things. Right now, we will place our “faith” in a driverless car or some other machine. But soon, AI will be used for more serious things. In the future, an AI judge may decide sentencing for someone convicted of a crime. Or an AI medical tribunal will decide who receives medical treatment or who is denied. Or an AI politician will come into power. You can see the ramifications.

Biblically speaking, this is just what will happen if indeed the image of the beast will be a type of AI. (For the record, I believe the beast himself will be a person; the image of the beast could however be some sort of AI-empowered robot.)


I believe we are witnessing just two of the next steps towards an AI god.

What do you think? Will the antichrist or the image of the beast be able to read minds? Are people even now being conditioned to place faith in AIs? Comment below.

Round Up (April 23): Home Robots – Ugly Atheists – Devil’s Technology – UFOs

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a news round-up or a feature article. But I have a good reason: I’ve been completing the final draft of my novel, Alien Outpost. I know you’d rather read a fictional adventure novel full of advanced technology, secret government projects, a deep underground military base, UFOs, lots of guns, survivalism, brain-washed zombies, evil scientists, soldiers, and of course aliens (or are they?). All set in Texas, USA after America splits up. There’s something for everyone in this book!

I’ll be posting a sneak peek very soon, but be SURE to sign up for my mailing list. I promise, I RARELY send out emails and will never spam you. This list is for announcing new feature articles and I will send out an alert when the book is released for Kindle. That’s it. Promise.

Now…you’ve been so patient, so here’s the latest edition of the round-up.

A Robot In Every Home

Amazon wants to deliver a robot to your home. You can count on it: people will sacrifice their privacy for freedom…as well as status, novelty and convenience. What other reason is there to have a robot in your home? Can you think of one good reason that the average person needs another pair of eyes and ears watching and listening? Most people will not need a reason, because they don’t think. Be different. Look at the big picture, friends.

The Atheist Double-Whammy: Foolish…AND Ugly?

The author George Orwell said that by a certain age “everyone has the face they deserve”. Perhaps he was completely correct.

I said that atheists are foolish (just agreeing with God and repeating what the ancient king David said), but this guy puts a spin on atheism I never considered: “You may recall that I was among the first to observe that atheists are neurologically atypical and that atheism is essentially a particular characteristic of being on the autism spectrum.”

Atheist Fedora
Atheists, what’s with the fedoras?

From comments: “As far as physiognomy goes, to a certain extent our souls shape our bodies. As we age, the nature of ourselves is more and more reflected in our appearance. Thus the ugliness of evil is displayed fully upon the body.” George Soros is proof of this.

Maybe physiognomy hasn’t ben validated as “science”, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true (or useful). (And in this age of scientism, we tend to think that something that is non-scientific is somehow “bad” – to our own possible detriment.) Again, from the comments: “Heuristic- a quick rule of thumb, that isn’t always correct but is correct enough of the time to be useful.”

So, if it is true…how to explain it? Here’s a possibility: “There is the idea that you become what you worship. Whatever is most important to you in your life becomes your idol. Now, while some people may be predisposed to certain character traits from birth, these character traits can also be developed after birth…Certain activities, thoughts, obsessions will change a person overtime.”

Another wise comment: “So in essence, a person can traumatize themselves. That’s why the Bible commands us not to entertain sin. By engaging uncertain sins, we are in a sense rewriting our brains and that internal change will eventually manifest itself through our physical appearance as well. That’s why sin is sin, you cannot sin without it affecting you and those around you. It’s like being exposed to radiation.”

The Devil’s Technological Plan

Most of the articles and news round-ups I’ve written deal with the over-arching theme of technology and how it relates to prophecy. The two things (i.e. technology and the antichrist) go hand-in-hand these days. For a person to not be able to see this, they are truly (spiritually) blind. It’s not only obvious, but in recent years it’s become blatant.

So, what’s the devil’s plan? In a sentence, his plan is: to use technology to it’s fullest potential for his purposes.

What is that? Not to cure disease. Not to enlighten darkened minds. Not to empower the weak or to motivate the lazy. Not to invigorate producers of things.

It is to attack God and his creation. Especially the part of the creation that reflects God. In other words, people. Humans. The created beings who show the image of God. You are the target of his attacks, and now in 2018 it’s being done at the meta-level.

“…Hell Laboratories have in recent years created what philosophers call a meta-level: the Internet, to give it its true name. Now, whatever poor mortals seek, they seek through their computers, phones, and the Internet, which is to say me. So powerful is this tool, whereby the image displaces the Word, there can be no escape. Conditioning through images and, soon, through HL’s latest brilliant stroke, genetic engineering, will destroy human free will altogether. And that will be my final victory, for it will mean that when the Enemy returns to Earth, there will be no creatures made in His own image there to meet him, at least not among the living.” – from His Majesty’s Birthday

UFO News

I have indeed been seeing UFOs in the news lately, but honestly it’s a bit tiresome to re-post similar articles over and over. I don’t want to do it. Instead, I’m working on writing a feature article to explore what the truth is about aliens and UFOs. If you’ve read any of my past writings, you’ll know I am not a believer in UFOs in the sense that people are seeing flying saucers from outer space. But a very real phenomenon is occurring. That is the one thing I agree with the physicists such as Michio Kaku and world governments and military.

I have to give Michio Kaku some credit in the above video. He says “new laws of physics” open up. I agree, and in more “Bible vernacular” I would call them spiritual phenomenon or spiritual manifestations. We may just be seeing the same things from different angles.

Round Up (April 2): Shape of Water – Weaponized Social Media – Thomas Jefferson’s UFO – More UFO Sightings – Mind Reading AI

The Shape of Water Deception

The most celebrated movie of the year – The Shape of Water – is given an eye-opening analysis in this study on Beginning and End. Did you realize the connection with Genesis 6 and the creature in this movie? Whether a devil is called a “god”, a “saint”, an idol, a “ghost”, an “alien”, or even a monster – it doesn’t care so much what label you give it, as long as you give it worship.

Social Score

If you’ve doubted the seriousness of an impending “social score” because you thought, “I live in America where it will never happen”, read this: When ALL Gun Owners Are Shunned. This guy gets it. Even if the USA doesn’t implement an official or quasi-official “social media score” (like in China), you may end up having a de facto social score in practice.

You’re living in a time when everything is being turned upside-down.

Thomas Jefferson’s UFO Sighting

President and father of our country Thomas Jefferson once saw a UFO. He didn’t call it that, of course, but his sighting of strange aerial phenomenon would certainly fit right in to the current trend of sightings. Read about it here.

More UFO Sightings in the News

And no, it’s not just my imagination – there really are more UFO sightings being reported in major news outlets. It’s been happening increasingly more often in the last six months. Here are a few links:
13 Reasons to Believe Aliens Are Real
2 Pilots in Different Planes Saw the Same UFO. The FAA Can’t Explain It.

Time Magazine, CNN, and even Fortune magazine all reported on this as well” Two pilots report seeing UFO in southern Arizona skies

The thing is, lately the whole UFO thing is being (for the most part) reported with soberness and not treated as a joke. Why do you think the concept of UFOs is being treated more seriously lately?

AI-Created Fake News: Coming Soon to Your Social Feed

Fake news is being enhanced by AI.

Key takeaways:

  • When you log into a social network such as FaceBook, you are entering a brain laboratory. You are the experimental subject.
  • “the next generation of fake news would be far more sophisticated thanks to AI.”
  • “Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, suggested that the company would use AI to spot fake news. According to Gourley, AI could be used in the service of the opposite goal as well.”
  • An AI President

    In my article on the Coming AI Gods, I mentioned the possibility of one day having an AI-enhanced ruler. I posit that perhaps the image of the beast will be such an entity. And one day people will call out for it. They’ll desire an AI to rule over them as much as they should desire Jesus Christ to rule over them. Why? Because “their foolish hearts are darkened”.

    The numerous deceived masses would literally rather worship a thing they created – a computer simulation of a god, made of earthly elements – than the One Who created it all. They’d rather worship an idol of their own making than worship the real God of the Universe!

    Here’s the latest: The Case for an Artificially-Intelligent POTUS.

    AI that Can Read Your Thoughts?

    An artificially-intelligent humanoid robot (an android), could be given almost all the characteristics (actually, imitations of the characteristics) of the Creator God. If that were so, it could effectively “replace” the Messiah. This is what is called “antiChrist”. One of the things only God could do – up until now – is to know your thoughts. Well, AI mind-reading technology is here to change all that. Welcome to the dystopian future: we’ve sure worked hard to get here.
