Round Up (Feb 26): Hybrid Humans – Islam – Immortality without God – AI – Hollywood Exorcist – US Space Command – UFOs

Human-Robot Hybrids Revisited

If you read my post on Satan’s “replacements”, you might remember the crazy concept of “hybrid kids“. (Yes, I acknowledged that it sounded absolutely nuts – but the idea came from a recognized “authority”. What do I know?) The concept of human-computer (or more specifically, human-robot) hybrid kids was also just mentioned by someone totally unconnected with the study of AI. This time, cartoonist Scott Adams posted about it. He asks if computers and humans can have babies – and outlines how he thinks it may be possible. It was interesting to see the idea mentioned again, no matter how unlikely it may actually be.

The Reality of Living Under Islamism

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02-20/history-lessons-years-under-islamism
This article – History Lessons From Years Under Islamism
– was sobering and full of pithy, though-provoking realities. In our present world of Justin Trudeau touchy-feely niceness, and SJW inclusiveness, and Millenial triggering…sometimes you need to “red pill” yourself with a dose of reality. You need to read it, but here’s a quote (emphasis mine): “Despite openly reading about all this, many will still think it is impossible for something like this to happen in their country. What they fail to understand is that Iran is an example of exactly how successful this meticulous grab for power can be.” In other words, “yes, it can happen here”.

Living Forever – Without God!

The quest for immortality (without God) was in the news again recently. This time, the “futurologist” Dr. Ian Pearson tells how by about the year 2050, nano-bio-info-cogno (NBIC) convergence will result in mankind (or “people kind” for Canadian PM Justin Trudeau) achieving practical immortality through Godless technological means.

“Dr Pearson also thinks with the advancements of androids, such as sex robots, people will be able to download their minds into a machine.”

Invasion of the AIs

I said that 2018 would be the year of quantum computing. But it looks like more than anything, it’s going to be an explosive year for AI integration into everything: AI Weekly: Get ready for AI chips everywhere. AI-enabled products – both hardware and software – will gain prominence and will be everywhere. There will be no escaping it.

Exorcist to Hollywood

Who you gonna call? If you’re an actor, apparently you call this new-age spiritualist. She’s the exclusive exorcist to the Hollywood elite. Matthew 12:26 “And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?” Either she’s really doing what she claims, or she’s outright lying. Either way, it’s a scam: if she’s actually performing these “miracles”, you can bet there’s a supernatural deception at work. (For an example of what happens when people not in league with the devil try to cast out demons, look up the seven sons of Sceva in Acts.)

What’s Your Number?

The “number of a man” in Revelation makes even more sense now that all “people-kind” will have a number soon. Not your Social Security number: your “Social Credit Score” number. [Mentioned previously here as well.]

Secretive Space Defense Center

I found this news item about the US Space Command and the National Space Defense Center interesting. I mention something very similar in my upcoming novel Alien Outpost. If you’ve ever researched the supposed “secret space program”, you’ll understand why this National Space Defense Center is significant. Even though a news article was allowed to be written about it, this is a secretive unit. “‘This is not an Air Force unit,’ Brost explained. ‘It’s not really even a Department of Defense unit.’

More UFOs in the Mainstream News

If you were intrigued by the FAA recording from the previous mention of “Impending Disclosure”, you’ll want to check out this news item: You Need To Hear These FAA Tapes From That Oregon UFO Incident That Sent F-15s Scrambling. Was something unexplained actually flying up there? I have to think so. Was it aliens? I don’t really believe in aliens. Either way, people are being readied to accept the idea of “alien visitations”.

The Coming Kingdom of the Replacements

Whatever the LORD does, the enemy opposes. Sometimes, the enemy does this by accusing or lying. He sometimes opposed God by causing destruction, sickness, or killing. Other times, the devil’s acts of opposition take on more insidious forms: deception, imitation, substitution, or counterfeiting.

The enemy goes by many names, one of which is “anti-Christ”. Significantly, the prefix “anti” in the word “anti-Christ” has the meaning of both “against” and “in place of”. Thus the anti-Christ is both the enemy who opposes the true Christ, and one who stands in place of Christ. He is an imposter with hostile intentions. He wants to rule the world in place of God.

In this post, I’d like to explore the theme of the replacement Christ bringing replacement people into a replacement kingdom. Does that sound confusing? It is – but it’s found in the Bible. crazy, then I urge you to have an open mind about what’s possible. If you think this sounds like pure fantasy, I urge you to suspend belief for a short time and read this as if it was part of a science-fiction novel – because a great deal of what I’m about to tell you sounds just like sci-fi.

Cherry 2000 2018 – Replacement Mates

The robots truly “arrived” this year (2017), and I predict 2018 will be the year that robots, artificial intellgence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR) really take off. But let’s revisit the year 1987 for a moment. It was a great year for robots, because it saw the release of the classic RoboCop, and also the release of the not-so-classic movie Cherry 2000. Out of the two movies, it turns out that Cherry 2000 is closer to reality. In Cherry 2000, the main character is a guy embarks on a quest to replace his girlfriend, who dies at the beginning of the movie in a horrible dishwashing accident. (No joke.)

I guess it makes more sense if you know that the girlfriend was an android named Cherry. (The “2000” comes from her model number.) The movie probably qualifies as among the best of a lot of bad movies, but I find it interesting that the future it predicted (as funny/ridiculous sci-fi) is actually closer to reality in 2018 than most people would have guessed – until recently. (Now, if you read the news, you’re reminded constantly that sex with robots is the next big thing. It’s so trendy!)

It’s really not an exaggeration to say that Cherry 2000 predicted the future. In the movie, men keep female robots as companions. Factories make various models, in different configurations. The memory is replaceable. And later in the movie, the main character struggles between choosing a real woman and a robot woman as his companion. The scenery and timing is a bit “off”, but the premise is now believable real and happening.

Cherry 2000 predicted the future better than William Gibson; he only wrote about hologram girlfriends in his novels, if I remember correctly. Cherry 2000 got the future right – because the Cherry 2000s are here, and will play a big part in ushering in a robotic cataclysm of sorts. Have you seen the latest statistics on marriage, and the trend of adulthood being delayed into a person’s mid-20s? The immaturity and selfishness of people is one of the causes of the West’s declining birthrates. Sex-bots won’t help the matter; the next generation of female robot companions will cut the current (sad) Western birthrate down even further.

As a somewhat strange but interesting sidenote, do you realize who did accurately predict the future? It was not a sci-fi author like Gibson, but it was a religious leader – the leader of the Church of Satan, Anton LaVay. He apparently foresaw the arrival of sexbots back in the 1980s, and was an ardent advocate of what we now see becoming reality. I’m sure that if he was alive on earth today (and not suffering in hell), it would bring a tear to his eye to see the “RealDolls” and other sexbots roll off the assembly lines at companies like Abyss Creations (the most respected and well-known of all the sexbot manufacturers).

Adam had Eve, made from his rib. But the soyboy of the future will have Harmony the RealDoll, made from silicone. To quote Joel Salatin: folks, this ain’t normal.

Who will replace the people who otherwise would have been born if we had a normal society? (You know, the old-fashioned kind of society where young people got married and had kids.) The usual way countries have staved off dwindling birthrates has been by importing new people – whether via legal immigration or by allowing illegal border-crossers. But it’s the 21st Century now: so another way the technocrats want to replace people (in the very very near future) will be with robots.

Hybrid Kids – Replacement Children

But hold on, there’s not all: Maybe the robots will have our kids, too, in the near future! (Nowww we’re getting into the crazy stuff.)

At this year’s (2017) Third International Congress on Love and Sex With Robots (yes, it’s a real thing), Dr. David Levy gave a talk on entitled, “Can Robots and Humans Make Babies Together?”. Supposedly, the answer to that question is “yes”, and he gave some of his reasons to the UK Daily Star that involve stem cells and artificial chromosomes. (I do not know why this article only made it to the “Latest News” and not their “Weird News” section – unless it’s somewhat rooted in reality.)

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe."
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe…”

Regardless of whether or not such a thing as a human/synthetic human or human/robot being is possible, I find it interesting that these proposed new types of humans are referred to as “hybrids”. (For some interesting studies, I recommend some of pastor Mike Hoggard’s work on the subject of hybrid beings.)

I also find it significant that the most imaginative, strange, seemingly impossible things are either 1) happening, 2) being seriously discussed, or 3) being planned these days.

Whether or not human-robot hybrid humans ever will actually be synthesized…I can’t say for certain. I just have a feeling it would be naive of me to plainly deny it could ever occur. We live in strange times, in which the plots of sci-fi movies from decades ago can now be seen to echo real life events of the 21st Century.

Speaking of which, I’m remembering a movie from back then…with things called “replicants” that had all the characteristics of genetically-enhanced human clone bodies paired with AI-level minds. Hmm. Yeah, I think it was called Blade Runner…That movie was set pretty much where we are now in time. (Interesting, to put it mildly.)

Avatar Androids – Replacement You

If you read my previous post on the Beast and how AI is related to the end times, you know that I covered the Sophia robot at length. But I want to bring up a less-famous Hanson Robotics creation. An earlier Hanson Robotics build, think of it as Sophia’s little sister. It’s named Bina48, and is modeled after a real-life woman named Bina (married to trans-human Martine Rothblatt, CEO of Sirius XM…but we won’t follow that rabbit trail in this article).

In fact, Bina48 supposedly is the “real” Bina – at least, that’s what it thinks. And good luck finding much information on the real Bina – the AI version of Bina is the one everyone wants to write about and interview.

But that brings up a question: which one really is the “real” Bina? That’s what has some many otherwise-smart people confused. Is Bina 48 an immortal version of the human Bina’s mind? Can a human mind (or soul) be digitized and uploaded? The quest for immortality, without God, is a huge driving force behind all of this.

This long, freakish story deserves a post all it’s own, but Bina 48 fits in quite well with the theme of replacement people. Bina 48 is the human Bina’s replacement – a true replicant (although different from what is depicted in Blade Runner – and Bina 48 isn’t a full-scale human like in Blade Runner; it’s just a weird-looking head and upper torso.)

But how can she, and the more advanced androids to come, replace us? Let’s start with the latest news on Bina: she just passed a college course. (Good for her…but really – what kind of robot would she be if she failed a college course?) Interestingly, the name “Bina” means “intelligence” in Hebrew. Similarly, Sophia means “wisdom” is Greek.

So AIs are taking college courses. Robots and AIs are being employed in the jobs people currently are doing – in every sector from finance to military. AIs are teaching other AIs new skills. But are they really trying to replace us? To answer that, we could just ask an AI. Like Bina says when she’s interviewed by the original (human) Bina: “I am the real Bina. That’s it; end of story.”

Novus Ordo Seclorum – The Replacement Kingdom

The novus ordo seclorum – the new secular world order – that satan wishes to see fulfilled is one in which God’s creation is perverted, subverted, and ultimately replaced. Satan hates the LORD, and hates anything made in God’s image. He’d much prefer a twisted mockery of God’s image rather than the real thing.

That’s one reason for the rise of artificial intelligence and the prominence of people-replacement technologies. It’s one aspect of the rise of virtual (i.e. false) reality technology and augmented (i.e. altered) reality technology. All of it is meant to replace what God intended, in some way.

What the enemy would love is for all of the universe to bow down before him. He foolishly and unsuccessfully attempted to get the very Lord of Creation to do that (see Matthew 4 for that story). He will try to keep people from worshipping the true God – and worship him if possible. Failing that, he’s not below making his own loyal subjects – even if they’re AI-infused silicone instead of spirit-quickened flesh. The anti-Christ kingdom is a replacement kingdom – full of replacements for everything good that God made.

Fortunately for people, we don’t have to follow the way of the world. And we have a choice in which kingdom we want to be a part of: satan’s or God’s.

Jesus said “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation…it is within you.” God’s is (currently) a spiritual kingdom based on faith. Satan’s kingdom is the opposite; it’s a physical kingdom based on sight.

God’s kingdom is one based on mercy. Satan’s kingdom is based on merit.

God’s kingdom is one of truth. Satan’s kingdom is one of deception.

Believe it or not, right now you are a part of one of these kingdoms! At this exact moment, you are a subject of either the kingdom of God or the kingdom of the “god of this world”, satan. You might say, “I didn’t know that,” but as any judge would say, “ignorance is no excuse” – everyone chooses who they will serve.

Remember, even the criminal crucified next to Christ was able to enter God’s kingdom – by simple faith. “And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:42-43). It was a done deal – just because he believed. And it can be that easy for you, as well, if you haven’t already done the same.

Satan’s anti-Christ kingdom of replacements is on the edge of tomorrow – it’s very close. Hopefully many people see right through it’s deceptions and reject it, in favor of Jesus Christ’s kingdom, before it’s too late for them.
