    Thanks Jim, I may have some folks I need to share The Social Dilemma with. I read a book which discussed some of those things, Christians in the Age of Outrage by Ed Stetzer.
    Praise God for keeping us on His side of His Word. There may come a 'genius' from among the technocrats who will offer the lost a false eternal life, like a false profit possibly as described in Revelation 13. My pastor mentioned an explosion of technological advances toward the last days based on the scripture you quoted from Daniel. He also discussed advances that many if not most of us have observed in our lifetime and how the developments and discoveries are accelerating.

    The individuals that I am thinking of are using pseudonyms. Even though they are using pseudonyms I have read their (some of them), background, computers OS's they are familiar with (some list the different OS's they use), and noticed the material that they post, over several years, to know their knowledge of modern technology is expansive. Also, some are Systems Analysts and programmers and some work for major technological businesses in management and development. I do respect their computer programming and expertise.

    “A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will come out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping, we are becoming.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    "To quote from a recent writer from the Old Country on life in Western Canada: "For a man in the West marriage does not mean what it does among the well-to-do at home, giving up a comfortable bachelor lodgings for a life of house-owning and smart dinners; it means leaving a ghastly loneliness for companionship and help, and squalor for decent comfort. For a woman in this new land the sphere of the home does not mean polishing scratches on silver or decorating the dining room with masses of flowers, but feeding and clothing and cheering husband and children, and being kind to poor bachelors round about who need kindness badly. Woman is at her old task as the civilizer, not as the over-civilizer."

    From my observations on the Linux forums, a lot of these individuals involved in the development of AI fully understand that they 'create' AI. In fact, because they can  create AI, they are lifted up with pride.
    Here are some of personal observations (which can be faulty), of studying, AI and Transhumanism:
    In my observations, they, not all, are not the least concerned of the human emotions, such as;  wisdom, compassion, joy, etc... that a human being expresses on a daily basis. The transhumanists that I have listened to, and studied, have no moral inhibitions, or interest, in the moral, or the spirit, aspect of 'Mind Uploading.'
    In my observations, these individuals are extremely intelligent when it comes  to technology. Numerous times, in numerous studies, and in posts on the internet computer forums, they are convinced that they can extend their brain functions through technology.
    Furthermore, in my observations, which are limited, the creators of AI, as with the creators of cryonics, are primarily atheists and agnostics. In fact, most of them are openly, and most verbally, against all religions and have a deep hatred of the Bible and any church. Most of these individuals, not all, openly state that God, if there is a God is a hateful and vengeful "force" and that all religion, especially Christianity, is 'superstition.'

    In response to his statement in bold, does he understand where "AI" came from? Did it develop itself? Or just happen by accident of nature? Of course not, it was made my a human intelligence. And I don't see that it will ever exceed human intelligence, because we have not only intelligence, but wisdom, compassion, emotion, spirit, things that are not found in AI, so it cannot exceed us. Even if it could, that is because we, as humans, are weak and limited, and AI would be limited, regardless of its capacity to exceed, if possible, their 'creator'.   But the very fact that AI could ONLY exist because another intelligence programed it, makes clear that the human consciousness and intelligence, complete with emotion, self-realization, compassion, love, etc, as well as the capacity to CONTROL emotions and make them work FOR us, had to be created by another intelligence, a greater intelligence, with much greater capacity for those things associated with our weak minds. Just as AI has an intelligent source, so human actual intelligence needs an intelligent source to bring it about.

    Since I have a background in computer tech (IT) the first thought that came to my mind was, What happens after the human memories are loaded into the 'trans human' robot? It's just like the computer I'm using now. It has data loaded, it's just like the memory of a PC with no emotion, no love, no God, no future. The only part that could have emotion, love, and hope for eternity id dead. That is not life after death...it's an algorithm in a computer application. "Even so, come, Lord Jesus." [Revelation 22:20]

    In order to keep this thread on topic, for those who want more "Biblical Insight" on the topic of "Transhumanism" and the "fallen angels" coupled with the ability for angels to appear on this earth in the form of man, and to procreate as man, I would like to reference the thread started by John Young, called, The Sons of God are not Angels." Here is the link:

    I have always disagreed with the way the whole 'sons of God with the daughters of men' thing has been popularly interpreted, particularly because God created everything after its kind, including humans and angels, meaning there is an implied impossibility to crossbreed, even if fallen angels, ie, devils, could take physical form, (which there is no biblical precedent for to be found), there is nothing to say they even have the capability to breed at all, since they were not created to breed in the first place. 
    No matter what we do to ourselves, we will always just be human-no matter the number of implants, microchips, or false limbs, no matter what we cut off, or sew on, we are what we are: humans, male and female, as created-all we can manage to do is mutilate and graffiti that which God has created, and one day, we will all stand before God and be judged for what we are: His creation, subject to His justice, like it or not.

    Men, I agree with both of your statements. Mankind is deceived by Satan to attempt to 'build a better man' and relieve himselves from the guilt of sin. "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God." [Psalms 53:1] Then, when man's endeavors backfire there is Satan to pick up the pieces... "And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me." [Matthew 4:9] But, I'm still interested to know who these people are that are involved in this 'fool's errand.'

    I don't want to know more about the philosophy behind transhumanism. I want to know who is involved particularly "in high places" [Ephesians 6:12] both secular and non-secular. Caution noted and not without consideration, thanks for your concern.
