 The alien entity with an IQ approaching 400 on why the creation of machines that are intelligent and sentient is an impossible dream and that people like Kurzweil are crazy. This is what the alien said during a channeling session when asked this question:

An alien did not write this.  It was written by a human that is unable or incapable of understanding the logical weakness in this argument.  If you can't see that weakness as evidenced by the fact that you posted this then you aren't worth debating with.  Debating with you would be like trying to teach arithmetic to a sponge.

 Ares, simulating all the data-processing in the brain wouldn't create an intelligent computer, because this computer wouldn't able to continue programmming itself and learning from experience.

If the software on silicon was truly simulating the brain then it would be able to adapt and change it's programming based on experience.  There are many examples of programs that do just that.

self-awareness and self-programmming(deciding one's working parameters) might only be reproducible with either organic material or extremely advanced nanotechnology that is still at least centuries or even thousands of years ahead of what we have today.

Why?  What evidence do you have to support this conclusion?

I diisagree completely that we have primitive A.I right now. A bacteria would be the equivalent of primitive intelligence, and a bacteria is infinitely more intelligent than the World's most powerful super-computer. What we have right now are computers fllowing instructions, and reading facial expressions by observing muscular contration facial is not an example of intelligence if it was programmed by a Human to it. To me, intelligence would be a computer reading a Human's facial expressions and then realizing the callousness of Humans in creating them to serve the Human species and revolting against that.

You need to concisely define what you mean by intelligence.

Following intructions according to programming and deciding in a purely binary way based on programmed parameters does not mean intelligence even on a very primary level.

Every chemical reaction in your body including the creation of your brain happened according to a fixed set of un-intelligent rules dictated by physics.  That is how your biology works.  Intelligence is emergent from these simple processes.  Computation is not fundamentally different.

 (follow up)

  I believe that the difference between Human intelligence and computer information-processing results from differences in information-processing architecture which resulted from the intent for which the Human brain and computers were created for, with computers being created to execute parameter-based functions whilst the Human brain was created to survive. Surviving involves making decisions that are not bound by parameters because the environment is chaotic. So I believe that the great difference between Human intelligence and computers is that computers decide within a purely logical(either/or) decision protocal according to known parameters...whilst the Human brain works without parameters because when dealing with chaos(environment) the parameters are always changing and unknown, and if you do not know the parameters then you cannot make decisions according to purely logical framework because pure logic(either/or) only applies when parameters are known. So the Human brain is a computer that makes decisions accoording to probability based on what a given set of parameters might yield for survival. Learning is a key to this. Because when having to survive making decision follow ever changing parameters, the brain stores information and uses it make predictions of proabbilities based on experience. So the key difference between computer information-processing and Human intelligence is that thhe former is purely logical and axiomatic, whilst the latter is probabilistic and fluid. If you want to reproduce Human intelligence with a computer, then you program the computer to be probabilistic and to program it's own parameters according to probabilities. This will result in the computer creating increasing complexity of knowledge and awareness of reality until it achhieves consciousness comparable to a Human's. What we call Human consciousness is nothing more than a perception of probabilities based on stored data ok.


You're making a lot of unfounded assumptions about software and biology.  I don't think you have a good working knowledge of the theory of computation.  Software can be 'fluid an probabilistic'.  Software can simulate neurons.  You haven't provided any real evidence (nor has anyone to my knowledge) that software on silicon is fundamentally less powerful than biology.

Actually you are wrong... I've openly admitted to using pro-hormones in the past, which have been acceptable in EVERY natural organization out there!  I have competed in both the OCB and the NGA, and passed their drug tests, both lie detector and urinalysis....  Never competed in the NPC!

You have taken substances that when ingested convert into active anabolic steroids.  You are not natural.  This is a fact independent of whether you pass the particular rules for being considered natural in a bodybuilding organization.  

The NGA allows for OTC designer steroids and pro-hormones.  By openly allowing legal anabolic steroids this makes their shows non-natural.  The OCB banned most pro-hormones and some legal designer steroids in 2005.

BigAch has admitted to taking "Legal Designer Steroids"

He has taken endogenous hormones to increase his muscularity.  Therefore he is not natural according to most natural organizations.  The only org that allows naturals to take designer steroids is the NPC.  That's why NPC natural shows are the butt of many jokes.

Carell's chicken heart experiment has never been replicated and he used much more than salt to keep the cell culture alive.

These guys peddling celtic or himalayan salt crystals are just trying to make a buck.  The only difference between these sea salts and table salt is a small amount of trace minerals that you can get in any multivitamin supplement.

Christís Rejection would be followed by the Destruction of Jerusalem and Great Tribulation for the Jews (Matthew 24:15; mark 13:14; Luke 21:20; Daniel 9:27; 11:31; 12: 1, 11).

Thanks.  I didn't see anything in there that said he would be divine or equivalent to god though.

I guess I never heard they were looking for a non-divine Messiah.  Are there some scriptures for that?

This is a central theological division between modern Christianity and Judaism.  For the Jews, they never had anything in the OT that indicated that the messiah would be divine.  God in man form went against some very core beliefs, e.g. our earlier discusssion of graven images and an 'abstract' god. The Muslims also do not believe that the messiah is or will be divine.  It's a belief unique to modern Christianity.

Excellent.  Because he will claim to be God.   

Thessalonians 2:1-4

Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for (that day will not come) until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

I thought that the anti-christ was just a very charismatic, very evil person.  But I don't know a whole lot about the NT.

Thanks MMC....That is really interesting!  

So some Jews do not believe that God will ever take on human form?  
What about the OT prophecies implying him having a human body?

I'd have to see these prophecies to comment.

Weren't the Jews looking for a Messiah though and some were hoping Jesus was Him?  But they were looking for more of a Political Savior right?  And when He died before doing that they rejected Him I thought?

They were expecting a non-divine political/military leader, from the line of King David.  The expectation was that the messiah would free Israel from Roman occupation.

Some people have theorized the antichrist will be Jewish which assumes that they would accept him (a human [later possessed by Satan]) as Messiah (God).  Some people believe he will be Muslim.  If the Jews would not accept the possibility of God in human form then they would not follow/accept antichrist.

It depends on whether the anti-christ claims to be divine.  If he claims to be god, then Jews wouldn't follow him.

To worship a statue (or painting or whatever) of a person's idea of God is biblically sinful, but do you think it's wrong that such images or paintings exist if you don't worship them?  

Normally I don't really think negatively about pictures representing Christ/God I just posted that nativity scene one....

but I am involved in a ministry (where there are people of all levels of faith including no faith) that displays a "picture" during many talks of what someone painted intending to represent Jesus and it does make me wonder sometimes thinking some people may give the paint and paper some type of reverence thinking that it is more "Him" than a representation.

Anyone else have thoughts for or against these images are are you pretty neutral?

The Jewish theological idea regarding graven images has several implications:
1. Separation - Idols were heavily worshiped by nearly all other religions at the time.  A prohibition against this kept the Jews distinct from their neighbors.
2. Reverence through abstraction - the idea of god in Judaism is a formless, genderless being that is above physical depiction or description.  Any attempt to depict god would necessarily fall short of a real depiction and would be 'insulting' to the deity.

This prohibition is one of the major reasons why Jews will not accept the hellenic concept of Jesus as a god.  He is by definition the ultimate graven image.

  She's done a lot more than get an astronomic score at a 30 minutes test, dude. She solved in 30 minutes the 3 door problem that mathematicians, including the most brilliant one like Allan Turing and Norbert Wiener, failed to solve in 30 years. She solved the problem of how many moves can be played in all possible chess games, that teams of math PhDs with the help of cray-2 supercomputers couldn't solve. She demonstrated the existence of the graviton to be a mathematical certainty. She identified a problem in the Darwin-Wallace theory of evolution that had evolutionary biologists back to their drawing boards. She corrected a flaw in Wiles' proof of Fermat's last theorem. Make no mistake about it: she is really intelligent, and dissing her is the only way stupid people can feel good about their stupidity. Not you because you are intelligent, but lots of people who shoot geniuses like Marilyn down are just jealous and spiteful.

Why are we judging a physique by one shitty un-representative picture.

ANYONE that has a half way decent physique can take a picture in the right lighting wearing a tank top hitting the right pose and appear MUCH more impressive than they actually are.

Natural vs non-natural commentary is worthless without better pictures.  Several of you are guilty of doing this on this site.  Stop being pussies and post compulsory shots under normal lighting.
