Round Up: Drag for Kids – Bionic Hand – Worshiping AI – Real Slaughterbots – Social Score – Gospel

Drag for Kids

In the backwards, bigoted 1950s, families had a mom and dad and kids watched the Mickey Mouse Club on their black-and-white TVs. How quaint! Now, we’re much more “enlightened”: a family can be anything, even a mom and dad who turn into a dad and mom (who are really the mom and dad, reversed) and kids can join drag clubs. Sometimes, I just want to get outta here!

The world will tell you this is brave or even “cute”. It’s not. This is totally, 100% sick, evil and perverse. People who can’t see that are deceived and need to get their minds in line with God’s thinking, plain and simple. This is the stuff of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The Six Million Dollar Man? The Bionic Woman? Or Terminator?

We can finally grow artificial muscles. And now we can even make a real-life bionic Luke Skywalker hand. (All we need now are the lightsabers! Wouldn’t that be cool?)

What will all these improvements in technology be used for? We’re always told: medical miracles, saving lives, and helping humanity. Some of those things will happen, of course. But you can bank on two other things happening – squandering of the technology for selfish uses, and suppression of the technology for the elites’ full benefit only. The “masses” simply will not get the full capabilities (for true good) that these technological developments are capable of.

Sadly, do you know what the masses will get from all this AI and cyborg and robotic technology? Mostly, increased repression by much of the tech – willingly and unwillingly – and sexbots. Yes, seriously: that’s pretty much it. The masses much be suppressed, weakened, and rendered compliant by the “powers and principalities” that rule this world.

AIs and Non-Human Intelligences

We are being told that non-human intelligences are where we need to look for help. And because we (and our children) are being taught and conditioned to always look toward something not human and not the LORD for help, a very dangerous precedent is being set. AIs are the thing (now) but think a little bigger. (Here’s a fun little thought exercise: when you see the term “AI”, substitute the term non-human intelligence, spiritual intelligence, extra-dimensional intelligence, and even extra-terrestrial intelligence. Changes things a bit, doesn’t it?)

Non-humans are touted as superior, better, and more capable. And it’s probably true: AIs do everything faster than us, from learning and then mastering chess to thinking and building more and better AIs. We can only replicate ourselves, and it takes at least nine months just to make the “copy”, who then takes even more years to mature. An AI can do something similar in minutes and hours – and it’s “copy” is a vast improvement on the original.

In this world, with this future, we can’t compete. If this is allowed to continue, humans will be irrelevant. Which is why we need to look to the One to Created it all. (He is coming back – and He will intervene, by the way!)

The AI Gods in 2018

UPDATE: The religion of the coming AI gods is being mainstreamed now. This theme is still in the news, and I predict in 2018 it will become commonplace to be hear about worshipping AIs and for news articles to mention techno-religions. The idea of an AI religion appears in this article about the Consumer Electronics Show, with the casual mention that “the range of online offerings could be worshipped”.

That last line was meant in the article in a very literal sense. This is what is known as “programming“. Whether you and I believe in an AI god is irrelevant in a sense; what matters is the people who invent and market technology and create and publish media do believe in it. These are the people who are “programming” today’s kids! What will the coming next generation believe in?

Slaughterbots Coming to Pass?

UPDATE: Slaughterbots wasn’t just a frightening vision of the future – it depicted things that are possible and happening. The drone swarms shown in that film exist. In real life, two companies are developing these “Gremlin” drones, which can be mass-deployed out of the back of large aircraft such as the C-130. The stated purpose is “spying on the enemy or destroying radar and missile positions.” Presumably, this is how the USAF will use them. (No mention was made of how the technology will be used by hackers, terrorists, or dictators once it’s stolen and copied.)

Your Universal Government Mark Social Score

If you thought Facebook was hard to get away from, get ready for the mandated social profile you’re going to get – whether you want it or not! It’s your personal, permanent, social score. It will follow you for life. It will eventually become global. And you can’t opt out.

One thing I am seeing is now that blockchain technology is becoming ubiquitous, it most likely will underly anything else that comes along. It’s already of course the basis for cryptocurrencies, but it’s also part of global AI knowledge, and also will be part of a world-wide “social network”. This is one social network that people will be very strongly encouraged to be part of.

The Answer for a Corrupt World

So, what’s the answer to all of these problems? It’s very simple. Read Jesus’ words in the Bible, and learn what the Good News is. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” He was and is the Living Word. Don’t know Jesus? Check out this “sermon”. The gospel message in the video (explained here as well) is clear, truthful, and inspiring – and tells us how to be free from the corruption enveloping this world presently.

What’s Coming in 2018?

2017 was probably the year of the singularity – depending on how you define singularity. It definitely was the year in which AI, robots, and the blockchain came into the forefront of current news. The year 2018 will bring much more of the same, but I predict we will see two other themes becoming more and more common. Two of the things that will gain more prominence in 2018 will be quantum computing and extra-terrestrial intelligences (ETIs).

ETIs refers to what you’re thinking: “aliens“. But it also refers to AIs. You’ll see what I mean when you watch the video embedded below.

I don’t quite know what to think of the whole ET/UFO scenario, in terms of why it’s been in the news recently, and why it’s gaining more…respectability (for lack of a better word). But something is brewing. We’ll see some interesting developments in that area, in 2018, I believe.

Could it be that scientists will make “contact” with something? Maybe. And if they do, it could be within the context of “inter-dimensional” communication. CERN might be involved. Or D-Wave. Or Google. Somehow, I think quantum computing will come into play when if that happens.

Why? It will serve as a legitimate, scientific, respectable, more acceptable method for the spirit realm to interact openly with the human realm – something that’s always happened, under different guises. This time, the same demons the Egyptian priests, Assyrian mystics and Babylonians sorcerers spoke with will speak with our scientists and physicists. This time, they won’t claim to be “gods”; they will claim to be people or beings from another dimension or solar system.

If or when “contact” occurs, don’t take it at face value. (I know I write about some mystical, weird, kooky stuff here – but I don’t necessarily believe in these things as they are presented. If I mention something here, I may be writing about it because other people believe it to be true, and those people have an influence over you and I. What I believe in is the Bible.)

Of course, it bears repeating that talk of ETIs, quantum computing, and contacting other dimensions sounds nuts (until it’s not). Sometimes even the scientists are surprised at the results they are seeing.

Just remember: these days, truth is stranger than fiction used to be. Here’s Geordie Rose (of D-Wave fame) talking about how AI is like ET:

A Simple Question About Cryptocurrency, the Blockchain, AI and the End Times

Doubles as a heater and white-noise generator
Doubles as a heater and white-noise generator

At this moment, thousands of home-built “mining rigs” are chugging along, calculating millions of hashes per second in an effort to “mine” crypto coins. Coins like Ethereum. ZCash. Monero. Next week, next month, next year, even more cryptically-named cryptocurrencies will emerge and become popular, and “miners” will put their computer hardware to work in an effort to mine those coins as well. The end goal (for now) is to either “HODL on” in hopes their value will go to the moon…or exchange them for Bitcoin or another currency (such as US dollars).

If all that techno-jargon confuses you, don’t worry about it: almost no one understands any of what’s really happening. Not even the people who think they know all about it…not really. Some people understand more than others, but in the end not one human being can see or comprehend this entire scenario of cryptocurrencies that people can “mine” with their home computers, processing something called a “blockchain”. It’s pretty complicated, and it likely goes deeper than just electronic currency. Something “more than human” is required to oversee such a complex thing as the cryptocurrency landscape…and especially the blockchain.

And that’s where AI comes into play. AI is definitely more than human, and the abilities of AI are almost required to be able to oversee all of this. For a lot of people, that’s pretty weird: a technology they’ve only recently heard of and they don’t understand (blockchain), is about to influence everything they know in life – and it’s going to be administered (in large part) by another technology that they barely comprehend (AI).

Summoning the Daemon

Oops, wrong spell! DO NOT WANT!
Oops, wrong spell! DO NOT WANT!

What’s even more weird is the possibility that the creation of Bitcoin and/or the other cryptocurrencies might be the result of – or created by – something more than human. Something extra-human. Maybe even something…anti-human.

Remember when Elon Musk told us that AI was just like “summoning the demon“? That more-than-human thing that will oversee global blockchain networks (and that might be behind their creation) may have been an AI…but it could have been something else altogether. (We might call it a non-human inter-dimensional intelligence, kinda like Socrates’ “genius” companion. We might think of it like a server daemon. Or, we might simply call it a “replete with knowledge” demon.

Does it sound crazy to infer that Bitcoin was created by AI, or that this technology came about as the result of demon influence? Yeah, I know, it probably does – but don’t leave yet. (The puppy videos and memes aren’t going anywhere.) Before you outright dismiss the possibility of non-human intelligence involvement with Bitcoin, I suggest that you watch the video embedded below – and consider if it has even a scintilla of merit. Maybe it’s not totally accurate. Maybe some of what it contains is sensational. But portions of the following video are undoubtably, verifiably true and accurate. (Skip to 15:28 if you want to get right to the discussion with Quinn Michaels about everyone’s favorite AI android – Sophia – and Bitcoin.)

At one point (referring to the singularity being here, not just near) he says, “It’s the most important thing in the world and no one knows about it.” (Hmm. I gotta say, that got my attention. Especially considering what I know about Hanson Robotics, SingularityNET, and the rest of that crew. They’ve made significant advancements in the field of AI, and make headlines every week.)

The video attempts to connect the mark of the beast with cryptocurrencies in general, and shows a few interesting tidbits that relate to the number 666 in connection with one particular aspect of processing cryptocurrencies. (I won’t spoil it for you, but it involves the numbers in a microchip model number. Subjective and flimsy evidence – but interesting nonetheless.) I don’t necessarily think the mark of the beast is here, but I do believe the framework for it is probably in place!

As I’ve said before, we are living in interesting times – and things will never be same. But what does all this stuff mean? What is the truth about it all? Not all of the “conspiracy theory” information out there can be wrong. Some of it has to be right. So what to believe?

A Simple Question

Remember the Bereans. Any good Bible student will take the news, analysis, and especially any sensational click-bait articles or videos with a grain of salt. A good Bible student will listen, read, and consider – and then ask a simple question: “What does the Bible say?” A good Bible student will search the scriptures for the answers. When it comes to finding wisdom and truth, that book is the only thing that matters.

We know there is an AI revolution occurring now. We can be fairly certain that blockchain technology is about to revolutionize not only currencies, purchase transactions, and banking – but many other fields. And we don’t need to be psychics to predict some of the ramifications of these technologies, especially the fact that they will be combined with people. (Transhumanism is not just a philosophy, it’s now real-life.)

But if we want to know what it all means, we always need to go back to the Bible. What does it say about all these subjects? Many people would be surprised to learn that the Bible says a lot. Here are a few points of interest that I feel relate to the time in which we live, along with some scripture references.

  • We live in a time of unprecedented knowledge. To the beloved (Dan. 9:23) man of knowledge (Dan. 5:12), Daniel, it was revealed that the time of the end would be when knowledge would be increased. If you don’t believe we live in this time, please take your cheaply available supercomputer global communications video GPS tracking device out of your pocket (i.e. smartphone) and look up ten renderings of Daniel 12:4 in a parallel Bible (for free online) and then read commentary by Spurgeon, Clark, and Matthew Henry (takes 5 minutes). We have more knowledge available at our fingertips, instantly and constantly than most people in human history ever were able to access in their entire lifetimes! That one fact should blow you away.
  • We are headed for globalism on multiple fronts. Globalism is the name of the game (and it is a game; we’re just pawns). It is lifted up and promoted. Patriotism and nationalism are subject to ridicule in the media. If you don’t think that’s a fair assessment, just look at how Viktor Orban and Donald Trump are castigated for putting their countries’ interests first, while rulers such as Merkel and Trudeau are lifted up (by the media specifically) as forward-thinking and good due to their magnanimous globalist policies. Why is this important and significant? Again, read your Bible. With specific intention and purpose, God divided the world’s people into “nations” in Genesis 10:5. Why? And did He make a mistake? (The UN thinks so.) Speaking to the Greeks, the apostle Paul was aware of God’s past actions as well: he commented on how God set the bounds and appointed the locations of various nations (in Acts 17:26). They didn’t dispute Paul’s claim. (Of course, Jesus implied that there would always be separate nations when He spoke of sheep and goats in Matthew 25.) Globalism is the opposite of God’s way – God is a nationalist. But globalism is the epitome of the anti-Christ’s philosophy. (See Revelation 13, 17, and 18 if you don’t believe me – argue with what the Bible tells you in those chapters.) The end-times way of the world system (i.e. the world order) will be globalist in nature. Some people call it a “new” world order, but it’s actually a very old world order. Read all about it in Genesis 11: you will see a clear description of a globalist world system, and it will be attempted one more time. (It just ain’t gonna work though.)
  • We are seeing divisions like never before. In the face of all this supposed utopian globalism that the media attempts to sell you, the divisions stick out like a whole lot of red and blue sore thumbs. Not just in the USA, either: all over the world. Matthew 24 gives a flavor of the end times (from Jesus Himself), and one thing that will characterize that time is conflict between people groups. It’s “nation against nation”, or ethnos against ethnos, and kingdom against kingdom. (There’s that stubborn clear distinction of people groups again.) It’s always happened, but almost all Western nations are being intentionally turned from homogeneous societies into multicultural societies (via mass importation). That’s globalism in action – a rebellious attempt to undo what God did. Whether or not the equation fits now, as the last days progress diversity + proximity will equal war – between people and nations. Jesus even said that families would be divided (Matthew 10:21) as a result of people choosing or opposing Him. It’s going to get worse before He returns.

So what does the Bible say? The Bible says a lot regarding the end times, and it foretells the world we’re seeing. It’s unfolding just as predicted. Everything from the history of Israel, and the setup of the last days temple is coming together, and the infrastructure of the anti-Christ’s kingdom is being put into place.

What the Bible says is pretty glum..but only if you’re not a believer. If your hope is in this world, there’s no way you’ll be able to see anything good on the horizon. A one-world system, governed by AI that regulates your every move? A universal payment system capable of being shut off in an instant by a global authority? A politically-correct technocracy, with forced “equality” for all, devoid of freedom? No thanks!

Utopia or Dystopia?

It’s everything modern liberalism wants to happen – but of course they put it in nicer packaging. I find it hard to imagine even the most ardent liberal actually wanting to live in such a place. If and when it arrives, I have the distinct feeling they won’t like it as much as they currently think they will.

While I understand some liberal reasoning and some of the problems they (think) they have with the way the world is run, when capitalism is gone and countries are gone and days alternate between Brave New World and 1984, and Mao’s China…lots of progressives will want some regression. Inequality will be a thing of the past, because everyone will equally suffer under anti-Christ – and the cure will be worse than the disease.

For believers, we understand that the utopia being foisted upon everyone very soon is a dystopia. We also know that it’s a final attempt by the usurping former-angel to have a kingdom of his own – complete with a weak imitation of God’s abilities, God’s mark (Ezekiel 9:4), and God’s children. I will cover some more of these things in an upcoming study, but I want to make clear that Christians have hope, because we know the truth.

The Truth

The truth is that this coming kingdom of anti-Christ will be inferior to God’s kingdom. The truth is that the coming kingdom of anti-Christ will be technological in nature, and will be oppressive. The truth is that the coming kingdom of anti-Christ will be global in scope and influence.The truth is that the coming kingdom of anti-Christ will be oppressive, enslaving, and evil. But that’s not all; there’s good news.

The truth is that the coming kingdom of anti-Christ will only last 7 years, and then it will end. The truth is that the coming kingdom of anti-Christ will show to the whole world – and to history – that God’s ways really are superior to man’s and also to Lucifer’s. The truth is that the coming kingdom of anti-Christ will be impressive when seen by mankind, but will pale when compared to what the LORD is able to do. The truth is that the coming kingdom of anti-Christ will intimidate men, but will not be able to stand before God when He merely speaks (Rev. 19:15).

Christians know the truth – the Word of God (Gen. 1:1). We also know the Truth, the person known as the living Word of God (John 1:1). That is why we have hope for the future. There is no hope, and there is no need for fear in the face of an AI future. It will all be done away with, in a short time. And what’s coming – afterwards – is far better.

Do you know Him? Do you know what the Bible says? Have you given any thought to what ultimately matters, and what the future beyond your short life on this earth hold? For now, the things I started this article with are part of our lives – and yes, you could say they “matter”.

But be sure of this as well: soon, all this impressive technology won’t matter. This system will be replaced by something far better (Rev. 21). And we’ll all wonder why we got so caught up in something so trivial as the blockchain.
