I am just watching "The Singularity Is Near" film.
The Singularity Is Near Movie Homepage
It is worth watching. It is about the development and evolution of artificial, man made intelligence.Think how all our combined intelligence, active
on this level for many thousands of years of experience based learning, cannot even manufacture a plant from this cosmic soup that people keep
Does this not tell you something? Only consciousness and intelligence can design "something".
I am sorry, but I don't agree that a meteor can create life. All of our applied intelligence the world over cannot make a plant even from this cosmic
soup. The Creator, The Architect, The Artist, The Scientist set this all in motion. Of that I am sure.
I cannot prove this in Science, but I prove it to myself just by looking at Creation.
The further we are venturing out, taking us further from the source of our original state the more problems we have.
In my home I sit alone. I am socially isolated. I have all the gadgets and tech at my disposal. Does this bring me fulfilment and happiness? No it
I would much rather be in an uncomplicated and loving relationship with all the trappings of family and trustworthy and loyal friends. I cannot buy
that, no matter how much money I have. I find that the society I live in has no respect for these values like it used to.
Of course my own stance on this is losing ground and being replaced by this Brave New World that is filling up everyone's heads. The idea of me
refusing to acknowledge The One who created all this is like being a child without any parents.
The meaning of worship is this:
"The feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity."
Interesting that Jesus said that we should love GOD with all our being. That is worship. Worship is not about bending before some guy or some idol.
If we love The One who made all this then we will also love all that The Creator made.
No one will ever convince me that all this just formed out of some primeval goo. Nope! A Divine Scientist made all this from intelligent design. The
further we drift from that blue print the worse we will make things for ourselves, emotionally.
We make some awful messes like continued genocide on a mass scale, horrific nuclear accidents, violent societies. Does that not also reveal that we
are not able to get it right on our own.
We are being taught a lesson as creatures. We can curse The Creator, we can try and forget He even exists. However, that will not help us to break out
of our exile.
The only way to break this exile is to look for The Creator and love Him. Blessings come from that. Not the blessings of riches and worldly happiness,
but real blessing where it matters - in our eternal souls.
I'd rather be this and say all these human things than be an individual who can only say that he or she has goo for a parent and looks at his or
herself as merely a finite biological machine who will pass away into oblivion and no longer have consciousness.
Tell me, which scenario I have portrayed above is the more sentient? Meaning that sentience is what makes us human (conscious beings with emotions and
not just biological machines).
Humans will never be able to make a soul, no matter how hard they try. Whatever we make with our own hands will never be able to duplicate real free
will and consciousness. Sorry, my Scientist friends, but you will never convince me that I am just a biological machine because I KNOW I am not just
that. I am a Spirit residing in this current matter and frequency of existence. I am ANIMATED. I AM.
I would much rather believe that a Great Cosmic Creator made me than I would a lump of rock or some chemical goo. It's much more glorious and sets my
imagination on fire with wonder. The other is a bit of a party pooper.
