Episode 16.5 - Special Nerd Church on the Singularity

Today we explore the notion of an ultimate end, and how until the last century that religion seemed to corner the market on finality. Three examples that have arisen since 1900 that are extra-faith ends include the Mythos possibility (HP Lovecraft and supernatural with no care for man), the Atomic Age, and the one I want to talk about, the Singularity. Is there any way a created, intelligent construct can't despise its creator? Will developing AI doom mankind? And what does the whole thing say about existence of G-d or the relationship between man and G-d? Blade Runner, Terminator, 2001, Her, and Rick & Morty may help us understand. I for one fear our electric overlords.   Reach me at @carlsmithwriter on Twitter or [email protected] to discuss your thoughts on this or any show-related matter.   Should I strive to release a Nerd Church only episode on Sundays? Let me know. thanks to Dischord Records for allowing me to use music from one of my favorite bands ever, Nation of Ulyss
