Top Scientist: Here Comes Immortality!

By 2050, according to a “top scientist,” human beings will acquire the ability “to not die” ( https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5408425/Human-beings-achieve-immortality-2050.html).

Yessireebob, immortality is just around the corner! This will be thanks to “Artificial Intelligence mimicking human thought,” “body part renewal,” and “linking bodies to machines.” And thanks to cloning, our masters will be able to “restore the brain as it matures.” Paging Dr. Frankenstein…

Wow. Like, 700 more years of Nancy Pelosi in the House of Representatives. I can’t wait.

But what we’re talking about here is just another freakin’ simulation. “You” will become a collection of computer programs and whatnot. Stuff that imitates you.

Oh, but let’s say it really works, and you become sort of immortal. You’ll last for as long as the high-tech wizardry doesn’t spring a leak.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to imagine what that would be like. What if one of your personal updates goes wrong? What effect would it have on your mind, on your soul–presuming you still have one, once they’re through with you–to live without the certainty of eventual death… and without the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ? With the thought that one slip, one glitch, and you’re gone for good–or maybe just turned into some kind of AI zombie that isn’t you at all?

Turn us all into a race of Terminators–yeah, what could possibly go wrong?

This is idol worship with a vengeance.

    Life comes from one source, and one source alone, our Creator. These people are severely deluded.

    There’s an old saying (which, come to think of it, I may have made up myself): “Everyone wants to go to Heaven, but no one wants to die.” I think I’ll lean on Jesus and hope in Him for my immortality. He’s a lot better company than an immortal Me would be, anyway.

    Isaiah 65 talks about a time on earth when long life will be restored but it says nothing of machines doing it. With Stephen Hawkins letting us know before he died that there is no God, I guess atheistic scientists see terminator-like life as man’s salvation.

    I’d give up my own mortality if democrats had it. In fact, i’m thinking of doing a democrat-FBI-like raid on the laboratory doing this research. Any takers?
