Faith in the Age of AI: Christianity Through the Looking Glass of Artificial Intelligence
Imagine having lived in the generation that discovered fire. Now, what if current scientific and technological advances reorder our lives every bit as much? Artificial Intelligence, decoding the human genome, links between mind and computer… All these things that were once science fiction are now quickly-and absolutely-becoming science fact. Millions of people feel like aliens in their own country. Like Alice in Wonderland, they no longer understand their families, coworkers, and neighbors. Reality itself has turned slippery. Could machines become sentient? Is “life” really a computer simulation? Does science really have a genetic blueprint for all human life? Believers and unbelievers alike are easily unnerved by such questions. Interestingly though, early Christians, mathematicians, scientists, and philosophers have already addressed these kinds of issues. And they have much to say about our “curiouser and curiouser” new world. In Christianity Through the Looking Glass, pastor, priest, scholar, and counselor Dan Scott invites you to learn what these hallowed ancient voices might have said about faith in the age of Artificial Intelligence.
