Let’s Make Robots That ‘Evolve’!

[Thanks to Linda for this news tip.]

We’re so busy studying computer models and simulations that we create ourselves, these days, that it seems a lot of scientists can’t be bothered to study nature anymore. By “nature” I mean “reality,” as God created it.

Science wallahs in Amsterdam are excitedly working to create robots that can “meet,” then “mate” (if they’re compatible), then “reproduce,” and hopefully “evolve” into new kinds of robots ( https://www.technocracy.news/index.php/2016/06/02/robot-baby-project-mimics-sexual-reproduction-let-robots-evolve/ ). Doubtless these are very clever individuals.

But the thing is, from beginning to end, it’s all simulation. Not real. Although I can’t help but relish the irony of a bunch of smart people who vehemently reject the whole notion of Intelligent Design, by God, pursuing what can only be called their own vision of Intelligent Design. They are not clever enough to see a contradiction here.

If they can make some simulation of “evolution” work under carefully controlled conditions–conditions designed and controlled by themselves–are they going to tell us, “See? See! This is what has happened all throughout earth history, only with nobody–nobody, mind you!–designing and controlling it! Only random chance!” Is that really what they’re going to tell us?

Yeah. Probably.

    What we have called ‘civilization’ has devolved into this abomination to Our Creator. Insanity runs rampant. Now, if only our ursurper-in-chief has anything to say about this, he’ll most likely decree that these mating robots should be allowed to be LGBT: tranny transformers!

    Reminds me of the story of a group of scientists who jubilantly celebrated their completion of a human and said “wow, we did it, we now no longer need God to create people; we can do it ourselves. God said, I’d like to see that, so show me how you did it. They gathered some clay together and began the task, but God said, “oh no, get your own dirt.” OOOPS

    I just thought of a song that I believe will bless everybody: Come Holy Spirit, sung by Bryan Duncan. It blesses my socks off.

      Thanks, Erlene, I’ll post it tomorrow.
      And now I’d better shut up, because there are only 10 or 11 left to go in the comment contest!

        You can still comment, Lee. If you happen to win, just skip over yourself and bless the next person with the win 🙂 (unless it’s one of us who has won already – skip us too)

    The rational disconnect of these so-called scientists blows my mind. Stephen Hawkins writes books about the wonders of the universe but never realized “In the beginning was the Word.”

    I think that a lot of these articles are the result of press releases which are designed to grab attention, and hopefully attract funding. It’s so ridiculous as to be absurd.
