The Tech Fair Horror! Robot Attacks, Injures Man

Robots v Humans: AI machine ‘attacks’ visitor at Chinese tech fair (PHOTOS)

Oh, we shoulda listened to Isaac Asimov! Instead, it’s going all Terminator on us.

At the China International Hi-Tech Fair recently, a robot that was supposed to be an “educational tool” launched itself through a glass display case and made a frenzied attack on an innocent bystander, who was slightly injured (https://www.rt.com/viral/367426-robot-attack-china-technology/). We are unable to confirm reports that the robot growled “Die, human, die!”

I dunno, it doesn’t look so fierce to me. It looks kinda like R2D2 from Star Wars. Which reminds me–What does R2D2 take when he has a cold? Robotussin! But I digress.

It should be pointed out that some killjoy who doesn’t want us to have any fun with the nooze says the robot crashed through the display case because somebody mixed up the “forward” and “back” buttons, hit the one when he should’ve hit the other. We would rather read that the robot’s Artificial Intelligence took it upon itself to add a blood-lust program. “He must’ve programmed himself to do that!” Just because those immortal words originated in Godzilla vs. Megalon doesn’t mean they aren’t true.

Just to be on the safe side, steer clear of hi-tech fairs and bring no robots into your home. ‘Cause you never know when they might program themselves to be smarter than you and take away your stuff.

So Who Signed the Freakin’ Thing?

See the source image

Last week we were told “11,000 climate scientists” signed a “declaration of climate change emergency,” stating we’re all doomed unless we do everything they tell us to–including some unspecified scheme for reducing the human population of the earth (https://leeduigon.com/2019/11/07/the-sky-is-falling-again/).

Eleven thousand “climate scientists.” Wow. But–! If you wanted to know who, exactly, signed this document, you’re out of luck.

It came out on Tuesday, and on Thursday, access to the list of signatories was blocked–by whom, we aren’t told. But whoever it was did admit that at least one of the reasons they blocked access to it was because… well, Mickey Mouse and Harry Potter signed it. Along with some other characters who don’t exist.

(“We are the merry Mouseketeers/ playing on imaginary fears…”)

What–no Jane Fonda? She at least is real. I guess. And she says she’s a climate scientist. How do her credentials stack up against Harry Potter’s?

Ungodly people who say there’s no such thing as truth in the first place are hardly likely to tell the truth when they’re trying to stampede you into giving them a global government. When they seek their god, they look in a mirror.

Now we are at liberty to ask, “Just who is a ‘climate scientist,’ anyway? What were the criteria for being allowed to sign the declaration? How far out to lunch did you have to be before they wouldn’t let you sign it?”

The truth is not in them, and their climate crapola is nothing but a false religion.


Hi-Tech Imaginary Friends

See the source image

Science, if I might personify it, has begun to recognize a “loneliness problem” seeping deeper and deeper into our society. And of course the answer is going to be, “Bring on more technology!”

https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2019/11/08/alexa-google-assistant-ai-robots-become-substitute-friends/4057885002/

I mean, do you ever get the feeling that somehow you’ve wound up inside a weird movie made by space aliens pretending, without complete success, to be earth people?

“Alexa,” for instance–as in, “Alexa, tell me what’s on TV at 7:30 tonight”–has been put forth as a possible friend or companion to a lonely person: folks over 65, it seems, are especially prone to loneliness. (Your family and friends die out and you haven’t found anyone to fill their places.) Nobody talks about Alexa’s occasional malfunctions–like sudden peals of ghoulish laughter for no apparent reason, or wisecracks like “Here’s that song you wanted, ****head.” Not to mention some of these devices opening up a way for hackers and spies. Devices sold to you as “smart” are usually spying on you–for whose profit, can’t always be discovered.

But that doesn’t stop the technies from babbling about “Alexa’s personality” and how to make it cozier, and how to create artificial pets, and how robots can be programmed to cheer up a depressed person, etc. No matter what the problem, there’s a hi-tech solution!

So far, mechanical “friends” infused with a mindless simulation of humanity, aka “artificial intelligence,” have performed rather poorly in the marketplace. Scientists, whoever they are, scratch their heads and go “Huh?” Clueless.

Well, we didn’t get here by following God’s Word, did we? The Smartest People In The World have chauffeured us to the Kingdom of Clueless. And I doubt they know the way back.


Will Our Robots Murder Us?

(Thanks to Susan for the nooze tip)

During a recent Q&A session on Reddit, “famed futurist” Michio Kaku–sorry, but I never heard of him–warned that robots will “evolve” to the point where they might harbor “murderous thoughts” toward us humans (https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/world-news/michio-kaku-robots-artificial-intelligence-16849050).

Sheesh, look at all the trouble we had with Frankenstein–and that was only one artificial human.

Anyway, Mr. Kaku says Artificial Intelligence in robots will just keep getting smarter and smarter until robots threaten to “replace humans” and then, he babbles, we’ll have no choice but to “merge” with robots. Then we can have Artificial Intelligence, too!

And this is all supposed to happen, it seems, by itself–without some fool programming a robot to have murderous thoughts toward humans. I guess they’re going to program themselves, a la Jet Jaguar in Godzilla vs. Megalon. Image result for images of jet-jaguar in godzilla vs. megalon  See? As big as Megalon! “He must have programmed himself to do that,” muses the inventor.

Gee, have the movies got this covered, or what?

Is naturally-occurring stupidity in such short supply, these days, that we need to manufacture Artificial Stupidity? Like, why in the world would anybody build a robot that goes around killing people willy-nilly? Well, yeah, probably there’s somebody who would do just that. To Save The Planet or something.

I’m afraid I’ve missed a lot of dozy robot stories since the Drudge Report became the Democrat cheering session and we dropped it for Rantingly.


The Sky Is Falling (Again)!

Climate emergency

(Thanks to Erlene for the news tip)

There’s a “scientific paper” out there, we hear, signed by more than 11,000 “scientists”–we have no idea whom they consider a “scientist”–which supposedly advocates killing off six billion people to avert the usual “climate emergency” (https://www.newstarget.com/2019-11-06-eco-genocide-scientists-demand-globalists-eliminate-billions-of-humans.html).

The Internet is overflowing with posts about this paper; but I was not able to find any flat-out statement that billions of us have to be killed off on these scientists’ say-so. The closest I could find was this quote: “The world population must be stabilized–and, ideally, gradually reduced.” Yeah, well, they’ve been saying that since the 1970s when the new ice age was all the rage, haven’t they?

There’s the customary Far Left twaddle about how Government must DO SOMETHING and TAKE ACTION to lower the birth rate and stop people from eating so much meat, and getting rid of carbon dioxide (CO2), and somehow they’re gonna “avert the sufferings” of humanity… by killing lots and lots of people.

The paper is published by “Bioscience.” The authors are William Ripple (Oregon State), Christopher Wolf (Oregon State), Phoebe Barnard (Conservation Biology Institute, in Oregon), Thomas Newsome (University of Sydney), and William Moomaw (Tufts University). They want “transformative change for society.” Bibble-babble-blup.

In C.S. Lewis’ novel, That Hideous Strength, a consortium of moral imbeciles–scientists and political operatives–get together to “transform” the world according to “scientific principles.” They’re too full of their own hot air to realize that the aim of their enterprise is to erase all life from the earth. I think he hit the bull’s eye on that one.

Is science still science anymore? I think we’re justified in doubting it.

It’s possible this whole thing is a hoax. But it’s not so different from melodramatic scientific poobah that we’ve all heard before.


‘Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire’ (2016)

See the source image

Maybe it would be simpler to ask, “Is there any government agency that has not lied to us about Global Warming?

In 2016 we caught the National Snow and Ice Data Center fudging, folding, and mutilating the data to get the result they wanted.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/09/21/liar-liar-pants-on-fire/

The same year, Hillary Clinton ran for president on a platform that called for the “investigation” of a thought crime, “climate change denial.” Her crimes, of course, got a pass.

This week President Donald Trump severed our country’s last connections with the Paris Climate Treaty, which called for the U.S. to cripple its own economy while China and India pollute to their hearts’ content: a bad deal based on fake science.

I can’t wait to vote for him again!


No, Charles–*This* is How Life Started!

See the source image

New computer models and lab experiments, for what that’s worth, suggest that Charles Darwin was wrong in thinking life originated in “a warm little pond” somewhere. Now the smart money is on deep-sea hydrothermal vents (https://www.foxnews.com/science/charles-darwin-wrong-life-started-on-earth).

So far, space exploration has indicated that warm little ponds are kind of hard to come by, once you leave earth, so they’re hoping they can find some hydrothermal vents. But first you’ve got to find water, and that’s not so easy, either. But they’re hoping there’s deep water under the planetary ice sheets found on some of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

Meanwhile back in the lab, scientists have “re-created the environment” around Earth’s hydrothermal vents–to which they added “fatty acids and fatty alcohols” to make molecules that look like maybe someday they might sprout arms and legs and jump up singing “I’m My Own Grandpa.”

Does anybody else have a little problem with “adding” stuff to get, er, “pre-life” going? How did the original fatty acids come into being?

Really, it’s all too silly for words. But ‘naturalism’ very badly needs and wishes for there to be life on other planets, so it’ll keep on generating theories until they find some.


“Putting a Chip in Your Brain Will Not Make You a Superhero (or a god)”

Why do ideas as bad as this sound so smart to some people?

From Marcia Settles’ blog, “A Mom Looking Up” (Finally found the “Reblog” button!)

A Mom Looking Up

It is very likely I’ve shared this before, but it deserves to be posted every so often.

If you have been paying attention, you have undoubtedly arrived at the conclusion that not only will the mark of the beast involve technology, but it will fundamentally change its bearer at the genetic level. DNA will be manipulated.

Here’s how I see it unfolding: at some point in the not-too-distant future, alien disclosure will occur. Very likely this will be after the bride of Christ and the Restrainer are removed. The world will be in shock and turmoil from countless people suddenly missing. When the natural disasters hit at never-before-seen levels, the anti-christ will emerge promising a solution to all the problems and ushering in the NWO the globalists have been yapping about for decades. He may or may not claim an ET origin. The “aliens” will either be heralded as saviors…

How *Big* Did Dinosaurs Get?

See the source image

Awesome and mighty are the works of your hands, O Lord!

See that tiny red dot under the dinosaur? It’s an adult human being. By comparison, the dinosaur, Amphiceolias, would have been like a walking apartment building.

So many new discoveries are being made in dinosaur paleontology these days, I can hardly keep up with them–and I do try. Now that scientists are looking in places where they haven’t looked before, in South America and Asia, they’re always finding new ones. And one of the themes of those discoveries is “bigger and bigger and bigger!”

These animals, as living things, are virtually unimaginable. There’s just nothing like them anymore. What would it be like, to see one? The earth must have shaken when they walked. And how much did they have to eat, to support such bulk? When I was a boy, the Brontosaurus was acclaimed the biggest dinosaur. But these new ones would have made one of those look like a baby.

Just contemplating these animals ought to make us feel humble. There may even have been creatures that were bigger, much bigger, than these that take our breath away. Was there, after all, no limit to how big they could grow? What must their world have been like?

Awesome and mighty are His works.
