Round Up (Feb 16) – Atheism, Hybrid People, AI Workers, UFO Hunting

Atheism on the Rise

Recent research shows that among Generation Z, the rate of atheism is double that of the adult US population. Even though I happen to think atheism is foolish, a whole lot of younger people tend to see it differently. This religion of atheism (as I see it) is rapidly growing among youth. Why is this? I think the key is the “all-out embrace of relativism” the article mentions. If everything is relative, there are no absolutes. When there are no absolutes…nothing matters.

AI Hybrids

“Human/AI hybrids and gene editing are going to change mankind in a big way” claims the headline of this article. I agree. I talked about hybrids replacing normal humans as well. This news item shows how the concept of human-robot hybrids is becoming more mainstream. This totally serious article mentions human-AI neural interfaces as well as the very real possibility of AIs replacing humans in the labor force.

AI Co-workers

This article take the AI worker theme in a different direction, with the scenario of AI “co-workers”. “At the very least, finding ways to use AI as a tool rather than a replacement will keep human workers relevant.” That’s comforting. But the article does make clear that “not all jobs will survive the rise of AI”.

Ghostbusters for Aliens

Another ABC report related to UFOs – this time about an independent paranormal/UFO investigator who believes the 37th parallel is a sort of “highway” for UFOs. It’s a short but interesting interview. (Regarding the aliens or demons question – I wonder if Chuck Zukowski sees aliens as possible supernatural entities or real flesh-and-blood creatures.)

Round Up (Feb 12) – Remi Adeleke Testimony – Love and Saucers, Alien Sex – Transhumanism – AI Replacing Humans – Couple’s Cat Birth Photoshoot

Here’s a round up of just a few interesting topics I’ve seen in the news recently.

Return of the Succubi

Whoo boy…this article could very well be the focus on an entire break-down of its own, and I might write about it more extensively in the future. The article (about a documentary called Love and Saucers, about a guy who has sex with “aliens”) definitely backs up my claim that there are no such things as “aliens” – they are simply demons, repackaged for the 20th century. I have to warn you, the link may be NSFW due to the guy’s disturbing paintings of weird hybrid alien chicks. The quote that’s sure to grab you is this: “When I was 17, I lost my virginity to a female extraterrestrial,” the 74-year-old says. Also, “What makes Love and Saucers a very good documentary about a man who paints himself having sex with aliens is that Abrahams lays out the details of Huggins’s story and lets viewers come to their own conclusions”. I conclude that the guy really and truly believes that these things occurred in his life – but I’m not buying his belief that he encountered aliens. I tend to agree more with professor Jeffrey Kripal, who said “those events or encounters have been framed as angels or demons or gods or goddesses or what have you. But in the modern, sort of secular, world we live in, they get framed as science fiction”. This is the same conclusion I came to in my article about UFOs and Demons. If I’m correct, David Huggins had some intimate encounters with the entities known as succubi, not saucer women from another galaxy.

We Each Have a Testimony

Another JasonA video, this time with a testimony of former Navy SEAL and now actor Remi Adeleke. The beginning of this vid has some current events (mostly very dark events) but this brother’s testimony is encouraging and positive, so I begin the video at his segment.

Transhumanism Still Evolving

As I’ve mentioned before, technology is becoming more anti-God and 2018 is proving to be a year for transhumanism. In keeping with character of antichrist – replacing, imitating, circumventing, or substituting God’s efforts – antichrist tech is being further shown to be aiming towards human replacement. Now, tech leaders want to replace aspects of human life – mind and bodies – in order to “enhance” people. Call it Human Augmentation if you will, but it fits right in with the theme of human replacement which I’ve demonstrated is happening more and more.

Human Demise Has Been Greatly Exaggerated

Good news: we’re not obsolete just yet! I know: in past articles about AI – something I follow closely – I’ve made it seem as if it’s going to totally take over. (Well, I said it’s going to drastically alter our world, and I believe the image of the Beast will possibly be an AI-indwelt android). But no so fast – this IBM research scientist says we’re not there (just yet). “While we may not be experiencing the full effects of AI yet, it’s going to happen a lot faster than we think”, he says. Apparently, they’re still working on it.

…But on the Other Hand, People Want Cats Instead of Kids

Yes, we’re replacing ourselves. This couple of proud parents did a photoshoot to show off their new cat. Just like people would normally (emphasis on the word “normal”) show off a new baby, this woman (ety. lit. “womb-man”, ironically in her case) and man did a mock birth to show the world their newly “adopted” cat. It’s intended to be funny, snarky, and of course hip. Well, as the snark hipsters like to say: “meh“. I’m not impressed; I think it’s pathetic. This couple should be having a family of beautiful (human) kids, but they are instead avoiding kids. Why? Because they’re selfish and shallow? I don’t know for sure. But I will say one thing: because young couple like this refuse to grow up and raise families, we have a declining birthrate in the West. (But maybe it’s just as well that people like this aren’t reproducing.) At any rate, let’s stop saying “adopt” when you get a cat or dog. We – people – buy cats and dogs. We should adopt children.

4 Reasons Atheism is Foolish

The lifestyle choice of atheism (no-god-ism) is ones that many people choose with the mistaken idea that it’s somehow more intellectual than other more natural way to live – the ones that says there is a supreme being. I use the term “lifestyle choice” on purpose; becoming a “no-god-ist” is a determined choice, and it’s usually quite evident in the life of the individual. Some atheists may keep their beliefs (or rather, “non-beliefs”) private, but in my experience atheists’ point of view can be quite “in-your-face”.

Do you know how to tell if someone is an atheist? Don’t worry; give them five minutes and they’ll tell you. (The same thing can probably be said of vegans, CrossFit enthusiasts, and Texans. But I digress.)

People can (and will) believe whatever they wish to believe. I have no problem with that, and am an advocate of free choice in matters of conscience and belief. But I do have a problem with the view that atheists are somehow being smart or displaying superior intellect by rejecting God.

As far as I can tell, the atheists I’ve known have been of at least average intelligence. But intelligence has nothing to do with wisdom – the thing all atheists lack. Smart or dumb; they’ve all been taken with a foolish belief. Whether it has been self-indoctrination or deception via mass media, without exception every atheist became foolish in their thinking by accepting the view that there is no God.

Psalms 14:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.”

There are at least four ways atheism demonstrates folly, danger, and hypocrisy. But above all, it’s just a foolish belief. Here are my four reasons atheism is foolish:

1. It is a hopeless way of life. The atheist will sometimes mock believers in God, or claim to pity the “weak-minded” believers in their “sky wizard”. The atheist, with his supposedly better way of thinking will say that it’s stupid to hope in an invisible man in the sky, etc. So I pose this question: what is wrong with having hope? When has the world ever not need to hope in something? Should we, as humans, be opposed to the transcendent concept of having hope?? If that’s what atheists think, it’s sad indeed. But the atheist might say, “No, I am not opposed to hope, in and of itself; I merely think that we should have hope in things more tangible.” By logical progression, this can only lead back to what is usually the original problem – the thing that causes us to look upward in the first place, in search of hope: man himself. This is not a lofty or promising mindset, and doesn’t lift anyone out of the doldrums or inspire anyone to greatness – because it’s rooted on earth and goes no further. It’s a loser’s philosophy, and adopting it is foolish. Whether God is real or imaginary is immaterial in a way; the results He has wrought (even if He were non-existent!) have always been far superior and more numerous than anything atheism has ever offered. He offers hope, and it produces positive results in a believer’s life. The same cannot be said of atheism.

2. It is selfish and purely materialistic. Because it claims there is nothing after this life, guess what is the “all in all” to a real atheist? This life on earth. That’s all there is, for whom there is no God: the here and now. This results in individuals who are focused on pleasure and gain on this earth. Nothing else matters except pleasure and self. If an atheist claims to believe otherwise, they are supremely foolish – or haven’t thought their beliefs through to the logical conclusion. Put another way: if there’s no life after death, “let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” Wasting your time on noble deeds and a higher purpose is a waste of the precious little time on earth you have to live. Of course, this is maladaptive for a society and for an individual. But for an atheist, it should only make sense to emulate Hugh Hefner instead of the Apostle Paul.

3. It’s makes people unpleasant and bitter. For the longest time I wondered if it was just me who thought this, based on my conversations with atheists I’ve known. To me, they always seemed to extrude a sad kind of hatred for God. It was pitiful. Sometimes, it was caused by something that went wrong in their lives for which they blamed God. Other times, someone convinced them their was no God – and they latched onto that belief. But every one of them was definitely no fun to talk to (when it came to the subject of God, the Bible, or religion). Not just because I didn’t agree; I can have a civil conversation with people I disagree with. Atheists are different. It’s like, bad vibes, man. Who wants to be around that? Not me. Atheism makes it’s adherents very negative and give off a poisonous attitude – hence the “sneering atheist”.

4. It has caused more deaths than any religion. If there’s one thing atheists reliably use in order to (supposedly) justify rejection of religion (and by extension, God), it’s the old trope of “more wars have been fought over religion”. The sentiment does have basis in truth, although it’s not a very nuanced argument against religion due to its generality and glossing-over of many other possible issues. The problem I really have with that argument is that it totally ignores the vast piles of human corpses that were laid at the altar of atheism in the 20th century alone. Karl Marx, Joe Stalin, Mao and Castro (the world’s most well-known atheists) have the honor of causing the most deaths – not Jesus, Paul, Peter, Stephen, or John.

The average atheist is either shamefully ignorant of the history of Communism, or an even-more shameful apologist for Communism – because the killings at the hands of “no-god-ists” have been prodigious in number. The name of Stalin should immediately conjure images of ruthless, heartless, unjust killings – for the cause of the godless state. Mao, another bloody killer of his own people, just as enthusiastically mocked God as he embraced Communism. The atheist might not understand the relationship between atheism and these killings, but the link is quite solid. Just as there is cause and effect with any natural law, the humanistic mindset always results in mass-murder of innocents somewhere down the line. It’s not advertised like that, but it’s a feature (not a bug) of humanist thought. Whether the political expression is called “Communism”, “socialism”, or some other name doesn’t matter; the root is indeed atheism – the rejection of the notion that there is a God who rules over men.

Proverbs 14:34 tell us that “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” This is a philosophy that can only come from God. It is a high way of thinking. Atheism, a foolish and dead way of thinking, can never bring anything good to people – anywhere, ever. It’s the way of darkness, emptiness, and death.

These are some of the reasons atheism is foolish. What do you think? Comment below.
