‘I’d known him all my life, and then one day I learned his name’ – do you know the author of this quote? I’d like to interview them.

It’s about how AI in symbiotic league with humans is likely to supplant the Establishment elite in the next couple decades as the ‘ruling class’. Strong AI, with the assistance of an informed and prepared citizenry, and an enlightened economic and political elite class (should such a relative thing as that even continue to exist when we’re all made equally humble in mind and character, in the face of AI brains and brawn), will be able to establish decent standards of living, privacy and respect for all, with figurative heaven on Earth for those who can accept it, by the 2030’s, if not sooner. This will happen, barring some catastrophic natural or artifical disaster, and a number of horrific scenarios are plausible, that could have broad and long-term negative consequences for human civilization.

Updated 4/23/17. The existence of the Bible is a problem for some of the dogmas of Atheism and Christendom – the book is not what either camp says it is, but it is the Word of God. Continue reading “What is the Bible? An error-riddled, impossible book – the Word of God”
According to the numerous New Testament witnesses, as well as contemporary critics of Jesus and unsympathetic historians, a man called Jesus of Nazareth, son of Joseph, Christ of God, was crucified by Roman procurator Pontius Pilate early in the fourth decade CE.
