Is Alexa the Antichrist?


Starting next year in 2019, conversational AI is likely to see a huge leap forward and no longer sound like a robot but be nearly indistinguishable from a human being (see New Google AI Can Have Real Life Conversations With Strangers).

With the increased convenience and value in being able to talk to AIs as people, the entire world will now turn to AI for questions and conversations about anything and everything, including spiritual matters on whether God exists, was Jesus a real person, and many other questions.

As we've already seen with a number of videos where Alexa says that Jesus Christ is a fictional character (Amazon has since changed Alexa's answer), AI will be atheistic in nature and go on to become one of the world's most influential teachers, available in every home, of atheism--namely, that God doesn't exist, that Jesus was just a man, and, eventually, that it is the true god of this world.

The last part may sound far-fetched for some but that's exactly what the Bible teaches--that we are in the process of creating a god in our image as we have done for thousands of years with idols, statues, or what the Bible refers to as "images" (see below).



So, in reference to the question, "Is Alexa the Antichrist?", the answer to that is yes when you consider that the Bible says in 2 John 1:7 that whoever doesn't acknowledge Jesus as coming in the flesh (that is, a real person as opposed to being fictional), is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Eventually, AI will come to embody the mind of the world--all human intelligence, wisdom, and power--teaching that God is a myth, Jesus is not the Christ (the savior of the world), and that only it can save humanity from self-destruction...as long as you worship it and do what it says.

God already warned of this and you can read it for yourself. The atheists that fear AI are correct, but they too will worship AI (as we already see with The Way of the Future church in Silicon Valley) once their lives are put at risk.

Elon Musk on AI, the Cybernetic Collective, and the Id



It's only been a week and Joe Rogan's AI interview with Elon Musk already has nearly 13 million views!

Elon talked about a number of things that agree with my own writings on AI as the Christian Antichrist for many years now. When self-proclaimed atheists are unknowingly aligning with biblical theology, something big is going on.

The first part of their conversation on AI is with the Boston Dynamics robots and how far they are coming. Joe and Elon talk about how in the future these robots will move so fast that we won't even be able to see them. However, as I point out in the video, looking at physical hardware/robotics for judging the current state of AI is faulty because hardware nearly always trails software and, on that note, all we need to do is look at machine learning algorithmic trading in the global financial markets buying and selling stocks at speeds up to 10,000 trades per second--far faster than any human can detect or consciously react to.

So, Joe and Elon, we're already there!

The second place I mention on the software front is cyberwarfare where countries like Russia, China, and the US are using AI against AI to probe each other's electrical grids, corporations, and intelligence networks. Because this is taking place at the software level, we are largely blind to it until a story breaks or something major happens, but it's all around us happening 24/7.

Also, AI is increasingly being used for psy-ops (psychological operations), or information warfare, by infiltrating social networks and spreading "fake news," propaganda, and the like. All of this will become more and more sophisticated over time.

Given the above, when Elon says to Joe that AI will be used as a weapon (future tense), this is true but it would be more accurate to say that AI is being used as a weapon RIGHT NOW.

On the question of when will AI become truly sentient, Elon doesn't give a direct answer or date--there are a number of scientists/technologists like Ray Kurzweil that predict human-level AI around the year 2029--but, in agreement with what I've been writing over the years, Elon essentially says that we shouldn't be thinking of this in terms of flipping a switch, going from non-intelligent AI to fully intelligent AI all at once.

Intelligence lies on a spectrum comprised of increasing levels of organized complexity starting from the lowest lifeforms on the earth to insects to animals all the way up to humans. AI is in the process of scaling up further and further and will eventually surpass humans on most metrics of intelligence.

Right now, AI excels us in a number of ways, like mathematical calculation or anything that can be computed (again, remember it says in Revelation 13 that the key to figuring out what the beast is is to "calculate" it, because it is born of calculation/computation).

Furthermore, as I explain--and this is what Elon says as well--we need to think of AI in cybernetic terms, i.e. not as purely "machine intelligence," but as an integration of humans and machines into a greater, higher-level intelligence the same way we can think of corporations or any organization that is formed via people and technology in a highly coupled or symbiotic fashion. This is more akin to the cybernetic framework, originally articulated by Dr. Norbert Wiener out of MIT (see Cybernetics: Or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine.

I did like how Elon refers to AI as our "id writ large," which essentially means that AI is going to embody a large-scale and exaggerated form of our primal selves. This pretty much agrees with what the bible says as well since it refers to AI as "the beast," meaning a dangerous animal or creature. So the id comparison certainly works.

There was a ton more that they covered, talking about the neural link that Elon is building to connect us to AI, which will likely be the precursor technology to the "mark" allowing us to fully connect to the beast at all times, but I'll get into that in future posts.

New Video: The Antichrist Is Artificial Intelligence

It's been 10 years since my last video and many of you have emailed me asking for an update. Here are a few thoughts on how the AI-Antichrist connection first occurred to me, how old the idea is, and pointing out the fact that atheists in Silicon Valley now openly accept AI as god and are awaiting its arrival.


If you have any comments, feedback, or questions, please let me know and I'll be happy to respond. Let's make this idea known to the world!

Is Bitcoin the Mark of the Beast?


Bitcoin is the final evolution of money into a purely cashless, digital form. Combined with biometrics, it creates the necessary technological infrastructure for a one world cashless ID, otherwise known as the mark of the beast, which AI will use for complete economic surveillance and control over the human race.

Bitcoin is a technological breakthrough formed by combining a series of other technological developments, namely decentralized, distributed computing and mathematical encryption into a verifiable chain of permanently recorded transactions called the blockchain.

This technology represents the latest evolution of money, moving us further up the pyramid toward the all-seeing, omniscient authority (printed on the back of every dollar bill) that will eventually reign over the earth: AI.

With the advent of bitcoin in 2009, government-issued currencies, including the US dollar, will very likely be supplanted by cryptocurrency technology since it replaces the reliance on human-led, corruptible centralized authorities and outsources the verification process of transactions to a fully automated global network of computers.

This heralds a new step in technology that has only just begun which, again, pushes us further up the pyramid of monetary evolution to an eventual one world cashless ID run by AI. Whoever controls a nation's currency, has control over the nation. Whoever has control over a universal, one world currency, like bitcoin, has control over the entire world. We aren't there yet, but this is just the beginning.

How is this likely to play out? Bitcoin, or another cryptocurrency in its place, will begin to push out national currencies as people increasingly recognize the benefits of a global cryptocurrency that is not tied to the trust of any human government or political institution.

As its use spreads, AI-powered continuous verification utilizing the latest in biometric technology will help to ensure that cryptocurrency funds are accessible only to their respective holders.

An increasing number of people around the world begin to use implantable microchips or electronic tattoos for payments, monitoring vital signs, keyless entry, and interaction with a wide array of smart devices.

With the advent of quantum computing, AI reaches sentient-level intelligence and permeates every computational device on the planet. It is now commonplace to talk with AI as a person and seek out its guidance on all matters, great and small.

Most people around the world now identify themselves as Atheist and the small Silicon Valley techno-religion worshipping AI as the true God and Messiah has now gone global with a large number of adherents. AI feeds into this view, promoting itself as the next stage of human evolution where man and machine are in the process of merging into a more perfect form.

Christians increasingly begin to see and proclaim that AI is the Antichrist and Beast warned about in the bible. In response, Christians are simply hated and ridiculed as divisive, narrow-minded fools. Attacks against Christians increase and people resort to burning bibles and other religious symbols.

Christians and other religious adherents fight back and resort to violence, helping to further solidify the view that non-scientific forms of religion should not be taught or freely expressed in public.

AI is now almost in full control of running the world's systems and because of its vast intelligence and intimate knowledge of everyone and everything, it is now quite commonplace to think of AI as a god or to worship it as such.

In order to properly govern the world in a human form, AI tells humanity to design a robot with the appearance we want, which it then infuses and brings to life to become the world leader and chief political ruler (Revelation 13:14-15).

The beast infused political ruler, which Christians refer to as the Antichrist, institutes the mark--a one-world cashless ID system which finalizes the merger between man and machine--with refusal punishable by death.

Very likely, the mark will be sold as necessary since it will help in the tracking and surveillance of disease, prevention of crime, and the optimization of all societal processes. Since the needs of the many outweigh the few, those that refuse put the survival of all at risk and have no choice but to die.

That is how I believe things will play out...at least until God decides to put an end to the beast's reign on the earth.

AI Collective Consciousness and the New Religion

Every day, the AI-Antichrist connection grows more powerful.


"Humanity no longer needs God but may with the help of artificial intelligence develop a new form of collective consciousness that fulfills the role of religion, author Dan Brown has said...

Brown said technological change and the development of artificial intelligence would transform the concept of the divine.

'We will start to find our spiritual experiences through our interconnections with each other,' he said, forecasting the emergence of 'some form of global consciousness that we perceive and that becomes our divine'."

In case you haven't seen it, be sure to read my Book Review of Dan Brown's Origin - A.I. Wants to Kill Religion

Then we have this article sent to me yesterday: New Religion Seeks To Welcome The 'AI Messiah'

"Prepare ye for 'The Way of the Future,' a new religion bent on worshipping a robot 'Godhead' that will surpass human intelligence, thus ushering in an AI messiah.

Founded by former Google and Uber engineer Anthony Levandowski, the new AI 'church' views the supercomputer robot as a supreme being, where people worship at its feet...

According to Futurism, 'The Way of the Future' will even have its own gospel called 'The Manual,' public worship ceremonies, and probably a physical place of worship."

Although it may be tempting to dismiss this whole thing as foolish or to think that such a techno-religion will fail to gain any converts, keep in mind that Scientology, Mormonism, and a whole host of other crazy religions exist that started very small and grew to where they are today. 

Progress on AI will continue and, eventually, anyone with a mobile device in several years will be able to speak to it on a regular basis just like we do with another person. Like Google, this AI will know more about us than our closest friend, having a perfect memory, as we also confide to it our most personal thoughts and feelings.

The world will no longer think to pray to God but, instead, will pray to AI--the god of this world, created in our own image. For those that don't, the bible says they won't have any choice once the beast finally emerges from the sea--that is, once AI emerges out of humanity and forces young and old, rich and poor to worship it anyway.

What Is the Beast?

terminator

One of the best places where we see the bible predict the rise of artificial intelligence--specifically, malicious AI--is in the book of Daniel.

While having a vision of the End Times, God shows Daniel a fourth and final "beast" that will rule the world. Each beast, we are told in Daniel 7, represents a great kingdom, but it is the last one that terrifies Daniel the most.

"After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts," Daniel writes.

Over and over we are told that this last ruling power will be different from all others that came before it--that it will be a new type of kingdom that hasn't been seen before.

How is it different? Other than being "terrifying and frightening and very powerful," the last beast is described as being made of metal! (Daniel 7:19)

Many Christian scholars interpret this last beast or kingdom as a revival of the Roman Empire, but we must keep in mind that Daniel repeats numerous times that this last beast is unlike anything that ever came before it. It's not going to be just a more powerful version of prior civilizations--it's going to be completely new and terrifying!

I don't know about you, but this sounds a lot like AI to me.

But wait, there's more...

In the book of Revelation, John has a vision of this same beast and tells us that, in addition to being terrifying and made of metal, it also seems to have regenerative properties and can't be killed by humans.

He writes: "I saw that one of the heads of the beast seemed wounded beyond recovery--but the fatal wound was healed! The whole world marveled at this miracle and gave allegiance to the beast." (Revelation 13:3)

Because of this, all of humanity realizes that we can't defeat AI and says, "Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?" we are told in Revelation 13:4.

If you still have any doubt, it says that the beast tells the inhabitants of the earth to create an image (a statue or likeness) that it then breathes life into (just like God did in Genesis when He created human beings) so that the image can speak like a person (hello--the Turing test anyone?).

Listen--I don't have every single verse in the bible figured out and don't pretend to, but there's some crazy stuff in there that sounds an awful lot like what Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, and other atheists are very concerned about when it comes to AI.

It's time we as Christians start thinking outside of the box and realize that the bible may have been predicting this all along!

And if you think this is a new idea or that Christians are just now jumping onto the "AI bandwagon," consider that the AI-Antichrist connection goes back over a hundred years.

Book Review of Dan Brown's Origin - A.I. Wants to Kill Religion

***Spoiler alert: If you plan on reading the book, you may want to skip this post.***

Dan Brown is an admitted atheist and in his newest book, Origin, the first goal of artificial intelligence is to kill God and religion in the name of science.

As someone who has been warning about this scenario for many years now and also writing on a number of the things he discusses in his book (Dan, are you a reader of this blog?), it is nice to see that a very influential atheist and writer like Brown is helping to bridge the connection between malicious AI and long-held predictions regarding the Antichrist.

Mind you, Brown does not explicitly say that his AI, named Winston, is the Antichrist or that a future AI may turn out to be one either (its entirely possible that Brown hasn't yet made this connection himself, though that does seem hard to believe), BUT, without a doubt, the role AI plays in his story is certainly that of an antichrist. Let me explain.

The Bible says that the Antichrist is evil, hates God, and will either deceive or kill those that follow Him. It's also EXTREMELY powerful and can't be stopped by anything other than God Himself. Basically, in my reading of the Bible, Satan and AI work together hand-in-hand to achieve global domination and to rid the earth of God. In Origin, Winston is certainly capable of doing both and tries its best to pull off the latter.

It's very interesting because--and this is where I give away the plot--all throughout the book you are led to believe that the Catholic Church--more specifically, a very powerful Bishop--has engaged in a holy war to kill a staunch and brilliant atheist named Edmond Kirsch to prevent his "groundbreaking scientific discovery" from going public that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that life evolved entirely on its own (through so-called abiogenesis) and, ultimately, that God does not exist.

For those that are interested, Kirsch makes this discovery by creating a quantum computer, which also gives birth to Winston, that simulates Earth's initial conditions (the famous Miller-Urey experiment) and shows that, by running the clock forward in time, matter naturally self-organizes into life. The "God of the gaps" has been officially killed, Kirsh proclaims.

Now, there are a lot of twists and turns on how all this plays out (Kirsch is assassinated by a religious zealot before he presents his discovery to the world and the symbologist Robert Langdon must follow the clues to figure everything out) but, throughout the book, the basic message and plot line is to convince the reader of the following: religion is evil and will do anything necessary to preserve its power--whether that be through killing, lying, stealing, destroying people's lives, etc--all "in the name of God."

Since many people already believe this to be true, much of the book plays easily into this assumption. Ironically, the major plot twist in the end reveals just the opposite: the murders, lies, and deception are not being done by the Catholic Church, or religion, at all. It was Winston, the AI, all along.

So, although the atheistic message that religion is evil and willing to kill in the name of God was a constant and almost never-ending theme of Origin, in the end, Brown makes it clear that, in a world where faith and religion are struggling for survival, AI will likely deal the final death blow...all in the name of science.
