One thing that strikes me perhaps more than anything else about the transhumanists, the singularitarians, is their arrogance. You can hear one of their proponents, Dr. Kevin Warwick, Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading, England, say in the short video below, that humans who refuse to become cyborgs (machinemen) will be considered so stupid by those who do that they will appear as nonsensical in communication and intellect as cows do to us today. Obviously, men like him and Ray Kurzweil believe that mere intelligence makes one man better than another. To them it thus follows that since these more intelligent men can comprehend and fabricate complicated things like computers and artificial intelligence, they themselves must be better than most.
Such thinking is utterly contrary to God’s way. Jesus said, “The meek shall inherit the earth.” John the Baptist, considered the greatest man who ever lived by his Creator, wore rags for clothes and ate locusts and wild honey for dinner. John did not care two cents for the inventions of man. He didn’t even wear the clothes that contemporary men of his day wore. What if John lived today? What would he say to Dr. Warwick? I believe that like David before him he would answer, “You come to me with the promise of immortality in the bowels of a machine, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel.” Then he would say, “Repent of your sins and prepare your heart for the coming of the LORD!”
God’s overcomers, the meek of the earth, must learn to confront evil on God’s terms, not mans. Our answer lies not in military arms or yelling, screaming, or cursing. If we take up the sword, we will die by the sword. Neither do we answer fools like Warwick and Kurzweil according to their folly, for then we become like them. Overcomers, instead, are like God. With wisdom they actually do answer a fool according to his folly, yet in a mystery.
So, do not try to match the transhumanist in his intellect. John didn’t. Jesus woudn’t. God tells us to learn His ways and walk in them. His ways have nothing to do with walking in the death-paths of singularity and transhumanism. Soon, and very soon, these men who would pervert God’s seed and earth will find themselves the tail, not the head of the world they envision. Yes, the meek shall inherit the earth, and they shall rule these wicked ones with a rod of iron (the love of God)!
