My mind has just been blown!
For the last two Saturdays, I have listened to “Understanding the Times Radio” at 10:00 A.M. Central time.. Jan Markell from Olive Tree Views hosts this informative program each week. Eric Barger is her co-hosts most weeks. Today’s guest, Pastor Billy Crone Pastors The Sunshine Church in Las Nevada, discussed the dangers of technology, specifically A.I.
Friends have told me that the new home computers many are buying, such as Alexa, can record what you say and even solve murders that have happened in the house. I don’t know if that is true, but my son has one and he doesn’t see a problem with it. However, if you have looked on your phone for something you want to buy and then turn off your phone. What do you see the minute you turn it back on? Your phone has just showed you what it thinks is the perfect product for you!
Advertising! The only way to escape it is to go to sleep. No Wait! What about the My Pillow man who shows up in your bathroom mirror?
All that aside, you know that computers and other tech products help us solve lots of problems and make our lives an easier. You may wonder what you would have done without them. I know I do.
That’s when they blew my mind. Artificial Intelligence computers. Machines think about 20,000 times faster than the people who built them. Can we restrain them?
People tend to follow anything that seems to have high intelligence, so that brings us to another question, Will humans make rebots their gods?
You may wonder about the future of technology. As I read in my Bible about the end times, I expect to leave this world when I die or Jesus comes. Others will not become believers until after the rapture. When the Bible talks about the image of the beast, is it going to be a robot?
I urge you to go to Understanding the Times Radio and listen for yourself to last week’s and this week’s message. At the least, it will make you think.
I have little knowledge of computers. I would love to hear from those of you know more about them. What are your thoughts on this interesting and important subject?
