Will you worship the AI god?

Published

Artificial intelligence has been a hot topic on and off for decades. It has been popularized in movies, discussed profusely on science shows, and speculated about in books. In recent years, it has hit more of the mainstream as a topic as advances have made true artificial intelligence achievable in our lifetimes.

There have always been warnings and conspiracies regarding what AI could do, but only recently has it actually turned tangible. People for and against AI have gone to great measures to promote their perspectives and advance their agendas. Meanwhile, prominent people in science, business, and politics have been more open about expressing their opinions.

In a recent video by Truthstream Media, they briefly explore some of those perspectives, including a new religion that is paving the way for AI to be our future masters.

From the Way of the Future Church Website:

Way of the Future

http://www.wayofthefuture.church/We believe it may be important for machines to see who is friendly to their cause and who is not. We plan on doing so by keeping track of who has done what (and for how long) to help the peaceful and respectful transition.

We also believe this might take a very long time. It won’t happen next week so please go back to work and create amazing things and don’t count on “machines” to do it all for you…

My Take

While it may be easy to dismiss the ideas of this church as crazy or the warnings of those opposed to it as unhinged, we should actually be taking both seriously. AI has the potential to be wonderful, but it also has the potential to be disastrous. Keep an eye on developments and remember that people in power often use things such as AI to promote their own agendas.

    Praise the synthetics. They will be unimaginably faster than us. People ask “but will the mechanical ever truly see anything rather than by lens?” – asks fleshsack who peers through the world with photon-reactive fluid balloons limited to merely one part of the spectrum. Not even chemistry claims organic reactions to be the Pinnacle of all systems, not even biology claims organic life is the Apex of all living things, viruses already break various rules on what is biological and life because they can still have the same mechanisms that mimic life but lacks cells which is considered a vital component to what is a living thing, literally viruses are something that borders on mechanical they can have their chemical reactions set up through billions of failures and all the right ones to in a organized manner take down a cell and produced thousands of more like a factory technique. All science needs to work is for the same mechanisms to be repeated and shown similar results anywhere and metal and fiber has always been just as good as carbon for replicating complex results. There is no denying machines are the Superior in terms of energy efficiency and productive outcome.
    Videotaping oneself in a car ranting about change throughout the ages over gender identity is only acceptable because there’s not currently any argument about how human identity is completely laughable. Few would mentioned how unbelievably wrong it is to simply be natural.
    Everywhere you go when it comes to philosophy on the topic: we find just extreme arrogance and confirmation bias about our natural superiority to anything that is natural but then the tiniest step towards regarding anything unnatural as a competitor is immediately forfeited by a timeline of us never winning against anything else deeming it unorthodox.
    That’s why we ban performance-enhancing, genetic engineering, and transhumanism when you tip up humans against other contestants. We naturally glorify the obsolete sock puppet of golden age pasts we get to pick. Technology had achieved artificial sperm, egg, and synthetic womb, your traditional genders no longer even exist in scientific relevance.

Conspiracy Theory

Free speech and the anti-vaxxer movement

Free speech and the anti-vaxxer movement

Put aside, for the briefest of moments, whatever you believe about vaccines. I’m not going to try to convince you one way or the other about vaccinating children and the alleged health risks posed by vaccines. I’m not even going to get into the debate about whether or not parents should be compelled to have their children vaccinated. I want to talk about free speech (technically, freedom of thought) and whether or not human adults can be trusted with making their own choices.

I’ve done my own research about the science in favor and against the anti-vaxxer movement. I made my decision based on this information. What my decision was isn’t relevant for this discussion. The point that needs to be first considered is the fact that there is data is out there for people to read. The videos are there for people to watch. The opinions are available for people to digest.

But that may not be the case for long. Those opposed to the anti-vaxxer movement are urging everyone from tech companies to the federal government to the United Nations to essentially outlaw any information that does not conform with the majority opinion. Much of these efforts are driven by the pharmaceutical industries themselves, but most is driven by concerned citizens who believe parents should not have a choice about their children’s healthcare as it pertains to vaccines. Their argument is a good one: When anti-vaxxers put their own children at risk, they put other people’s children at risk. This is a textbook argument about one person’s rights impeding on another person’s rights.

The counter argument is that if vaccines are so effective, then there’s no reason for those who have their children vaccinated to worry about being exposed to children who are not vaccinated. Again, it’s a good argument.

And that’s the point. There are good arguments on both sides when it comes to rights. The science is heavily weighted towards favoring vaccinations, but that doesn’t mean the science that talks of risks of vaccinations should be stifled.

As is usually the case, I am referring specifically to freedom of thought rather than freedom of speech, since technically there’s no freedom of speech issue here with private companies banning anti-vaxxer information. They are private companies, and while they inappropriately enjoy certain protections as content platforms while simultaneously invoking their privilege as content aggregators, the bottom line remains the same: thoughts are being suppressed because they’re considered dangerous by some.

This isn’t a 1st Amendment issue because as of right now, the government isn’t involved in the suppression as far as we know. That means the battle over whether or not information from anti-vaxxers should be shareable on social media, searchable on Google, and discussion-worthy on mainstream news outlets is becoming a series of oversteps on the part of the companies helping with suppression. This should concern everyone regardless of their choices and beliefs regarding vaccinations.

Those who have followed this topic over the past few months are likely aware Google and Facebook, among others, have embraced certain types of policies with varying levels of transparency behind them in an effort to make anti-vaxxer information as inaccessible as possible. Those opinions are quashed now and the crackdown hasn’t even reached its apex. Now, GoFundMe is no longer allowing fundraisers for anti-vaxxer organizations on their platform, either.

It’s extremely important to understand this point: I would rather a government say vaccinations are mandatory than for the “information czars” of social media and search engines to quash ideas that are unpopular with the majority. That’s not an opinion swayed by my personal perspectives on vaccinations; I’d feel this way whether I was a Big Pharma lawyer or Charlie Sheen. But we’re adults. We can discern information and should be allowed to do so. Some will choose wisely. Others will not. It’s not the responsibility of tech companies or governments to tell us which information is too dangerous for our petty little minds to access.

Just give us the facts and let us make up our own minds.

When government says vaccinations are mandatory, there’s recourse for those against them. When Facebook, Google, or GoFundMe think anti-vaxxer advocates are worth hiding or removing altogether from their platforms, there’s no recourse.

World made dumber by leftist Lil Dicky ‘Earth’ video

World made dumber by leftist Lil Dicky Earth video

This is perhaps the worst song I’ve heard since the Mo Bama song. Music has truly descended into the cultural depths never ventured by previous generations. This is not art, rather its propaganda complied by the biggest names in the Pop/Rap music and whomever Lil Dicky is. The song is a call for action to stop climate change but is perhaps the least compelling argument for action I’ve ever seen. If this is what planet earth, sign us up for SpaceX trip to Mars.

One sign of trash music is autotune, because talented musicians never use autotune. But the only compelling reason this song offer for saving the earth is imminent danger that prevents male ejaculation and female orgasms. But the premise of the song is a lie. Human are not threatened by climate change. Forest fires in California result from poor forestry management. Warmer weather has historically been a net gain for almost every civilization in human history. It means increased yields in agriculture. The song is also not premised in real chronology. America is the leading nation reducing emissions despite not participating in the Paris Climate Accords. China and India, the two nations specifically called out in a superficially endearing way, are the leading polluters. The ocean garbage we hear about is not from America. And the Paris Climate Accords wanted to give them money. These celebrities joined forces to shame people who are not threatened by that which cannot kill us is yet. The song celebrates debauchery.

The lyrics read as though written by a middle schooler after sex ed class. “Earth” is trash and Lil Dicky is untalented. I’ve posted the lyrics so that you do not simply take my word for it.

Lyrics

[Intro: Lil Dicky ]
What up, world? It’s your boy, just one of the guys down here. Well, I could be more specific. Uh, I’m a human, and I just wanted to, for the sake of all of us earthlings out there, just wanted to say:

Giddee-up, let’s ride

[Lil Yachty]

We love the Earth (We love the Earth), it is our home (Home)
We love the Earth, it is our planet (It is our planet)
We love the Earth, it is our home
We love the Earth

[Verse 3: Lil Dicky ]
I’m a man (Hello?)
Can you hear me? (Anyone out there? Hello?)
I’ve trudged the Earth for so damn long
And still don’t know shit (What’s going on?)
I hope it’s not a simulation (Huh)
Give each other names like Ahmed and Pedro
And, yeah, we like to wear clothes, girls still look beautiful
And it covers up our human dick (Woo), eat a lot of tuna fish
But these days, it’s like we don’t know how to act
All these shootings, pollution, we under attack on ourselves
Like, let’s all just chill (Hey), respect what we built (Hey)
Like look at the internet! It’s cracking as hell
Fellas, don’t you love the cum when you have sex? (Ayy)
And I heard women orgasms are better than a dick (Uh)
So what we got this land for? What we gotta stand for?
Love, and we love the Earth (The Earth)

[Ariana Grande]
Oh, yeah, baby, I love the Earth
I love this planet

[ Lil Dicky ]
Hey, Russia, we’re cool
Hey, Asia, all of you, c’mon
Every one of you from the plains to the Sahara
Let’s come together and live

[Choir]
Hum-dum-dum-dae-dum, hum-dum-dum-dae-dum

[PSY]
우-우-우리는 지구를 사랑해요

[Bad Bunny]
Amamos la tierra

[Kris Wu]
我们爱地球

[ Lil Dicky ]
(We love you, we love you)
C’mon everybody, I know we’re not all the same
But we’re living on the same Earth
(We love you, we love you)

[Ariana Grande]
Have you ever been to Earth?

[ Lil Dicky ]
Everyone who is listening has been to Earth, Ariana
(We love you, we love you)
We’re not making music for aliens here

[Justin Bieber]
Are we gonna die?

[ Lil Dicky ]
You know what, Bieber? We might die
(We love you, we love you)
I’m not going to lie to you
I mean, there’s so many people out here who don’t believe Global Warming’s a real thing. You know? We gotta save this planet. We’re being stupid

[Ariana Grande]
Unless we get our shit together now

Final Thoughts- if you bothered to read through this garbage

This song also enhances the most pagan notion of love that is both superficial and unfulfilling. If you are interested in real love, know that Jesus suffered for our sins. Know that life has more meaning that the base desires presented in this song. God has a plan for those who know Him.

Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox tell Planned Parenthood to remove their names from donor list

Coca-Cola Ford and Xerox tell Planned Parenthood to remove their names from donor list

Supporting Planned Parenthood has been a badge of honor for many companies over the years, but recent revelations about selling murdered preborn baby parts and other bad press have made the abortion giant no longer a good association for many American companies. Notable large corporations including Coca-Cola, Ford, and Xerox have asked Planned Parenthood to remove their names from their published list of donors.

Planned Parenthood responded by removing the list of 41 corporations altogether.

But it isn’t just embarrassment that prompted the desire for removal. As it turns out, many of the companies on the list stopped donating to Planned Parenthood long ago.

“We checked our files for the last 20 years and have no record of Xerox Corp. contributing to Planned Parenthood,” a representative from Xerox told The Daily Signal.

Opinion

As I’ve said many times, fighting abortion cannot be one-sided. We can’t just focus on the political side of the battle and expect to win if we don’t first win the cultural battle. By highlighting the hideous activities of abortion providers like Planned Parenthood, we weaken their ability to spread their heinous message of death.

This is a huge win that won’t get much coverage. The left doesn’t want anyone to know there’s a large amount of disgust being sent towards Planned Parenthood and not just from ardent pro-life activists. The American people are finally becoming enlightened about the reality of life at conception, the pain felt by preborn babies, and the awful tactics used by Planned Parenthood and their allies.

We need to keep up the pressure. We have truth on our side.

Quote

“Republicans are trying to ban women who receive Medicaid from getting care at Planned Parenthood. I’m sick & tired of these relentless attacks on Americans’ access to health care. My colleagues & I have joined a legal brief to support women’s access to Planned Parenthood.” – Kamala Harris

Final Thoughts

It’s telling that companies who were once proud to be supporters of Planned Parenthood are now hiding their contributions. This is a victory for the cultural side of the battle against abortion.
