Will we be able to convert robots to Christianity?

After conquering the kitchen, the game show, and outer space, are our machines heading for religion next?

The singularity is a hypothesized time in the future, approximately 2045, when the capabilities of non-living electronic machines will supersede human capabilities. Undismissable contemporary thinkers like Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, and Ray Kurzweil warn us that it will change everything. Hawking likens it to receiving a message from aliens announcing their arrival in “a few decades,” saying this is “more or less” what’s happening with artificial intelligence software.

    As long as they aren’t jews- we have enough of those

  • If “The Terminator”, “Star Trek” and “Person of Interest” have taught me anything then, no, artificial intelligence will not replace organised religion.

    Well, if AI can ever vastly supersede human intelligence, they will need an AI Jesus to die for their sins. Jesus didn’t die for robot’s sins. The very idea is like asking if we can convert cats to Christianity.

        So it says near the end of the article as they already take their virtual girlfriends on vacation. 🙂
        It all started in the early 80s as the Japanese started making cute little robot toys that talked and walked.

      • I think mega-robots should replace soldiers in modern warfare. It would be less bloody and more fun to watch.

    • Yikes!

    Kurzweil began preaching the imminence of the “Singularity” in the early Nineties; generally it has been ten to fifteen years in the future.

      It was coined by Vernor Vinge, in his book “Marooned in Realtime”, in 1988, I believe.

    The reason we are able to sin is that God did not make us robots. Robots won’t need a saviour.
