Science’s son is Technology, nicknamed Big Tech. Big Tech has a daughter who is irresistible for many people. Her name is Social Media. Driven by greed, this high tech family foists their spirit and vision upon unsuspecting human beings, capturing their minds and hearts.
Big Tech has become the latest false god in the history of man. As the old pagan societies created their pantheon of gods, even so mankind has invented Big Tech. Through ignorance and superstition, mankind did obeisance to these imaginary gods. Statues of Zeus and Diana, and later Jesus, Mary, and Peter in the Christian tradition, were prayed to and worshipped, as if the stone image could miraculously hear and act on their behalf.
The 21st Century god
Worship of Big Tech is much more harmful that the old pagan gods, as onerous as they were. It is because Big Tech is actually affecting and changing human beings. It has the power to not only grab one’s mind and control its thinking, it has the power to literally alter the human being into another specie. Technology started out by serving mankind. Now mankind is serving Big Tech. Much like an addict serves his chemical of choice, so man is Big Tech’s slave. Don’t believe me? Cut it all off for one week, and see if you get withdrawal pains.
Further proof that Technology is a 21st Century god is its desire to outdo the Hebrew God when it comes to having offspring. Its golden boy is A. I. Artificial Intelligence.
Big Tech is racing exponentially in pursuit of godlike powers through the birth and growth of A. I. YouTube has spilled the beans about Big Tech’s goal, which is to create super humans, much smarter that God’s original creation. Big Tech exults when A. I. demonstrates its superiority over human intelligence. Big Tech believes that their way to “perfection” is the way. The God of the Bible has His way to spiritual maturity (perfection), which is through Christ. But they scoff at that. Little do they know that “opposite of Christ” and “instead of Christ” means “anti-Christ” [Strong’s Greek #473].
Technology is walking in the footsteps of Lucifer’s nefarious goal. He said, “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isa. 14:14-16). He thinks he can do it better. But it ends badly for those with such an ambition.
This is what the beast implies as the “whole world wonders” after him. What current end time phenomena causes all this wonder? What entity has enthralled the whole human race? What institution of man has titillated the masses?
This technological beast is an institution that crosses over national and international boundaries. People in the deepest jungle villages and in the sand dunes of the Sahara can correspond in real time with anyone on the planet. They can virtually visit the British Museum or travel the world in search of knowledge. And so people marvel at this “benevolent” beast that spreads its electronic tentacles into every hamlet of the world. But their phones have ubiquitous eyes that record their every movement.
The Ultimate Aim of Big Tech
All this notwithstanding, the capstone of Big Tech’s pyramid of power is the achievement of singularity for their son, A. I. Singularity is “a hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence and other technologies have become so advanced that humanity undergoes a dramatic and irreversible change” (Dictionary.com).
An irreversible change. What is the problem with that, you may ask. A. I. Singularity is changing the human being without his Creator’s okay. The Supreme Being is left out of the picture. So what is this “Singularity”? Let’s let the experts tell us more:
“History is full of cases in which a new and groundbreaking technology, or a collection of such technologies, completely changes people’s lives. The change is often so dramatic that people who’ve lived before the technological leap have a very hard time understanding how the subsequent generations think. To the people before the change, the new generation may as well be aliens in their way of thinking and seeing the world.
“These kinds of dramatic shifts in thinking are called Singularity – a phrase that is originally derived from mathematics and describes a point which we are incapable of deciphering its exact properties. It’s that place where the equations basically go nuts and make no sense any longer.
“The singularity has risen to fame in the last two decades largely because of two thinkers. The first is the scientist and science fiction writer Vernor Vinge, who wrote in 1993 that ‘within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended.’
“The other prominent prophet of the Singularity is Ray Kurzweil. In his book The Singularity is Near, Kurzweil basically agrees with Vinge but believes the latter has been too optimistic in his view of technological progress. Kurzweil believes that by the year 2045 we will experience the greatest technological singularity in the history of mankind: the kind that could, in just a few years, overturn the institutes and pillars of society and completely change the way we view ourselves as human beings. Just like Vinge, Kurzweil believes that we’ll get to the Singularity by creating a super-human artificial intelligence (AI). An AI of that level could conceive of ideas that no human being has thought about in the past, and will invent technological tools that will be more sophisticated and advanced than anything we have today” (https://futurism.com/singularity-explain-it-to-me-like-im-5-years-old).
So, how will Singularity change us humans? Where is all this headed? It is headed to our heads—literally into our brains. The expressed goal is to create a superhuman with an A.I. connection via a tiny chip implanted in the brain. This joins connects with the cloud, giving the superhuman access to all of man’s knowledge seen on the screen of his mind. Think it, and it appears in the mind. Ask a question and the answer appears in the mind. Present a problem and the human with the chip solves it using the power of superhuman Artificial Intelligence.
Big Tech will have transferred full blown artificial intelligence into the human being, thus creating a post human super intelligent being. This is Satan’s goal—to change mankind into a new creature, “better” than the existing human, and thus circumventing the Hebrew God and His goal for man.
This is not a science fiction writer’s smoky reverie. They are already designing prototypes of microchip implantation into the brain. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsX-7hS94Yo.
All this is not a dystopia; it is a reality. It is actually happening right now. So how will Big Tech implement their plans for man’s date with the microchip? Is this the “mark of the beast”?
