Okay, this is off topic but it’s a lazy summer evening at the end of August:
The developer of A.I. Jesus is brazen about his intentions:
“In these days of trials and tribulations many have turned to religion. But what religion is left for those who have averted their gaze from the fables of old to the shiny metal toys of today?
I present to you A.I. Jesus. An artificial intelligence of my invention created from the King James Bible and nothing else. This A.I. learned human language from reading the bible and nothing else; absorbing every word more thoroughly than all the monks of all the monasteries that have ever been. – George Davila Durendal, “I Created an A.I. Clone of Jesus” at Medium”News, “A.I. Jesus Sputters from the King James Bible” at Mind Matters News
Durendal claims to think that his creation is the right sort of religion for humans and robots over the next few millennia.
Maybe it’s a gimmick but this is the kind of prophecy you’ll hear: “And he shall come against him, and said, As the LORD liveth, that he might be fulfilled which was spoken, he said, Thou are the spirit of your good works that ye have not seen, nor any thing of the service thereof, and a certain censer, and the sin offering, and the posts thereof were displeased with the dead of her father’s house..”
Deep, man. Deep.
