On very rare occasions I like to do a blog where I say very little about a topic, and rather, ask the readers of this website what they think about something, and this is one of those times.  I'd like to know what people think of this story from Germany, shared by U., of an evangelical (i.e., Lutheran) church service led by an A.I. I have my own thoughts, of course. But in this instance, I think it would be much more interesting for people to read what other people think.

Here's that story:

    The path to God is organic and no AI can take you there. The path is a transcendental path within all of us.

    When MSM and even general population is talking about AI , they seems to focus on ChatGPT and other smoke screen. True AI is already there, running through veins of everyone who took magic juice shot ( and due to shedding, also in veins if those who didn’t).
    Look at synthetic biology,this is AI what you are looking for. Other thing which seriously baffles me why all of sudden people seems to worship Elon Musk!? Guy is so deep in this whole transhumanism business. I’m not a religious guy at all , however I think we are facing quite a biblical times , comparable with Tower of Babel event from the past.

    There is no distinction, between artificial intelligence and lies. They are the same.

    Every time a man stops thinking for himself, he automatically endorses a golden calf.

    Standstill in crossover produces an empty mind, which is doing without doing, that flows.

    That is the only truth.

    I recently read Ezekiel, and God sounded to me as repetitive and indoctrinating as any old neuro lingiustic programming. So I don’t see the difference, it has been an AI from the get go.

      Originally, Elohim-Yahweh was plain deductive reasoning, and exactly what those terms mean is known, because they are ideological cognate with Odin’s two brothers, Will & Woe.

      The Gospels only speak to devotees, and that is why a second coming was a necessary excuse, to dumb down, and justify a psyop, so that logic and reason would prevail in the future.

      Both Judaism and Catholicism are false spins on a Scythian narrative, and today crusades are directed out of the Vatican, to stop the truth from emerging, in a second coming.

      Scythians popped in and out of the Darial Gorge, to drink a toast, much to Assyrian distress. So it is still, today…

      when we log in and the system asks if we are human.
      It’s like that old Goldfrapp song
      Are you human or a dud?
      Are you human or did you make it up?
      Artificial intelligence is not ike artificial sweetners
      In a pinch
      You can’t just do without!

    You now know what being soulless means this is not real this is a digital opium den. Stoning yourself out with narcotics in a dark alley is more human than this bizarre church meeting.

    We have reached the point where the computer is becoming a burden, a required burden. The person no longer controls the computer, the computer is now controlling the person. Click here, double click, sign in, change password, repeat.. again and again. It was never designed to make our lives easier. It was designed with an agenda which most of of us here can now understand. Digital technology plays by its own rules and we must submit, we are losing control, we can’t opt out. It’s destroying us, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

      I went to a museum the other day and there was a large electronic board where you prepaid parking. I decided that if I had to download another parking app I would go somewhere else. As it turned out it did not require a phone app. I did a victory dance and the other folks interacting with the phone kiosk started dancing too.

    I wouldn’t give an AI sermon the time of day.
    AI is the new Lee Harvey Oswald fall guy.
    Used to blame it on the computer; now blame it on AI.
    It’s programmable. It’s not intelligent.
    So this so called “intelligence” is simply programming dummy humans, to believe it is “intelligent”. Algorithmic General Artificial Intelligence isn’t here, and accounted for; at least in the Earthly sense. In another dimension; AI may have intelligence form, most likely on the dark side.
    Placing any AI in a spiritual setting, is pure theatre.
    How anyone can stomach an AI “voice”, is beyond me.
    Many here have placed videos w/an AI speaker.
    As soon as the AI voice comes on – I’m out-of-there!
    I have absolutely no respect for a tool that mimics intelligence, voice, or any “living” simile.
    Not buying it in any shape, form, or magical packaging.

    I believe there are quite a few theologians from various faiths that adhere to the belief that technology, of some form, is the beast from Revelations. That it will infiltrate the churches and convince everyone to follow the anti-Christ, etc.

    It seems to me that AI is the only application of technology via which this could happen. So it’s rather interesting that a “theologian” would find this appropriate.

    Another slant on the wonders of AI, religion, and the profusion of bullshit.

    Harvey Risch is Professor Emeritus of Epidemiology in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale School of Medicine.

    Early on in the covid biowarfare operation, he advised using hydroxychloriquine as a treatment medication (which would have saved hundreds of thousands (maybe millions) of lives). Like other competent honest physicians who didn’t shill for the pharma biowarfare injection, he was attacked and abused by pharma shills.

    AI… being a Jew, Harvey naturally went to the “World’s Most Powerful Artificially Intelligent Rabbi” (FREE access to high-level Torah, Halacha, and life answers, anytime & anywhere), to see what it had on his HCQ stand. He logged on anonymously.

    The result was hilarious. joined his critics in dismissing his HCQ advocacy, often citing (crappy) “research” results. But when Harvey challenged the AI by citing other comptetently conducted reasearch results, the thing apologized for ommiting the study, basically acknowledging that the research was valid, it knew about it, and should have factored it in. This happened a number of times.

    In other words, the thing had access to valid info in its database, but had been trained to ignore it! It handled challeneges by admitting it had the info, and apologizing profusely. 😎

    Now, in my limited use of Chatgpt, presumably a goyim AI, it seems to take the dodge of pretending it just didn’t know about any info contrary to some previously given opinion. I have to say, this is a much smarter dodge than uses…… 😎

    You can listen to Harvey Risch’s account of all this at:

    It’s entertaining, and gives insight into what bullshit this AI can be.

    • Scarmoge on June 24, 2023 at 4:57 am

      … upon treading this to my wife she pointed out that it was possible that the computer had not been programmed to ignore the other information but that based upon its previous human interactions it was merely following one of Peirce’s three ego-centric methods for fixing belief (Fashion). Brilliant woman. More on this later.

    Doesn’t work, Dr. Farrell. Only one of the last steps before they eliminate us humans.

      The purpose of the female simulation is to help with the transition to a spirito santo that is a divined celebration of fertility and the interdependence of life.

  14. Melxicedek on June 23, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    “Artificial Intelligence” is a scam; it is nothing more than a computer program with a very large database; it is artificial but not intelligent. Here are the definitions regarding true intelligence from The Philokalia as translated by Metropolitan Kallistos (Timothy Ware:

    • Melxicedek on June 23, 2023 at 1:11 pm

      INTELLECT – (νοϋς – nous): the highest faculty in man, through which – provided it is purified – he knows God or the inner essences or principles (q.v.) of created things by means of direct apprehension or spiritual perception. Unlike the dianoia or reason (q.v.), from which it must be carefully distinguished, the intellect does not function by formulating abstract concepts and then arguing on this basis to a conclusion reached through deductive reasoning, but it understands divine truth by means of immediate experience, intuition or ‘simple cognition’ (the term used by St Isaac the Syrian). The intellect dwells in the ‘depths of the soul’; it constitutes the innermost aspect of the heart (St Diadochos, §§ 79, 88: in our translation, vol. i, pp. 280, 287). The intellect is the organ of contemplation (q.v.), the ‘eye of the heart’ (Makarian Homilies).

      INTELLECTION – (νόησις – noisis): not an abstract concept or a visual image, but the act or function of the intellect (q.v.) whereby it apprehends spiritual realities in a direct manner.

      INTELLIGENT – (λογικός – logikos): the Greek term logikos is so closely connected with Logos (q.v.), and therefore with the divine Intellect, that to render it simply as ‘logical’ and hence descriptive of the reason (q.v) is clearly inadequate. Rather it pertains to the intellect (q.v.) and qualifies the possessor of spiritual knowledge (q.v.). Hence when found in conjunction with ‘soul’ (logiki psychi), logikos is translated as ‘deiform’ or as ‘endowed with intelligence’. Intelligence itself (το λογικόν – to logikon; τό λογιστικόν – to logistikon; ό λογισμός ho logismos) is the ruling aspect of the intellect (q.v.) or its operative faculty.

      • anakephalaiosis on June 24, 2023 at 2:45 am

        In itself, speech is just the endless function of the chatterbox, and speech has to be restrained, by a “red thread”, or by “narrowing down” speech, to a specific realm.

        Sunset and sunrise produce a “red thread” on the horizon, as a natural delimiter, that either marks nightfall on a witless tirade, or the dawn, by finally getting to the point.

        In Old Norse, “os” is the river mouth as image, which is a delimiting crossover, between talkative rivers, and the deep and endless silence of great water bodies.

        Thus “log+os” becomes delimited talkativeness, by adding a suffix to a verb, to tame its function, which produces circumscription or “perigraph”, as abstract realm.

        Elohim-Yahweh is deductive reasoning, around “free will” versus “restraint of free will”, which is a classical paradox, that produces standstill in crossover, the intellect itself.

        The point of Elijah is to stick to the guns, because golden calves are running loose, and Jezebel is looking for hysterical devotees, who have estrogen instead of brain.

  15. Bizantura on June 23, 2023 at 12:50 pm

    Testbed how far along spiritual beings have been downgraded to susceptible simulacra magical practices. How succesfull the new religion could be with AI an aliens incorporated? The powerbrokers are trying to put a number to it.

  16. ragiza on June 23, 2023 at 12:22 pm

    It’s all “artificial” anyway, whether it’s coming from some organic necromancer, or programmed “AI”.

    Now, I vent:
    Talk of “satans-devils” causing problems diverts people from clear thinking about what person or groups have the motive, means, opportunity to actually be the source of the problems.

    Likewise, talking about “god” saving us from problems diverts people from clear thinking about how to deal with problems. If you want to combat evil activities, again think in terms of who has motive, means and opportunity to combat those evil activities.

    But to demonstrate good will, I suggest this: if the Euros want to boost church attendance, have young cute girls as “pastors”, giving topless sermons.

    Opinion of a non-religiously-affiliated non-materialist: It’s chilling. Collective ritual — people gathering together, whether for a religious service or something as simple as sitting down to a meal together — is an essential part of what makes us human. Replacing the human leader of a religious ritual with an electronic simulacrum takes the heart and soul out of the whole experience. It’s the ultimate in dehumanizing, which I suspect is the point. It’s just ghastly. To say nothing of the possibility of artificial intelligence transducing some entity from who-knows-where…

    • Nidster - on June 23, 2023 at 12:27 pm

      Very well written, Fiatlux. Perhaps the whole point is to de-humanize the experience in order to prepare humanity for something even more in-human.

    Religion can be a great control mechanism of the people and a source of income. With dwindling numbers of people joining the ‘clergy’, and attending church services, what a great way to ‘rope in’ the computer crowd and ‘preach’ a more universal ‘doctrine’. Keeps the cash rolling in too. One can always buy their way into power if the choose to do so.

    I don’t consider myself “old” having been born in the last year of the 60’s. I spent my entire life assimilating computer technology in one form or another, from the hand-held Mattel football game, to (the neighbor’s) Intelivision, our Atari 2600 game system, a very early desktop computer that my elementary school had obtained (and only a select few got to use it), to the classic arcade games including Pong, Space Invaders, and my personal favorite Donkey Kong. All of which is context to explain that I should, in theory, be impressed with AI and the evolution of computers these past 5 decades. But what I find for myself, and I suspect many others, is that my interest is going the other way. I am less impressed by computers and especially social media applications (I am aware of the dichotomy that making this post qualifies as a social media application). I would classify all of it as plagiarism writ-large of God’s grand design.

    Regarding the AI-hosted church service, I am unimpressed by the AI host and I still have the same beef with it as I have with all organized religion: why must worship be a collective activity?

  25. Doug Bowersox on June 23, 2023 at 7:31 am

    I have long suspected that the AI is the Beast of Revelation.
