In God We Trust?

26 Feb


Have you noticed how sophisticated and powerful computers have become? Have you noticed how more powerful and sophisticated they are becoming with each passing day? Is there or will there ever be a limit to their computing capacity?  

Most who are in the business, or rather the science of computers say no.

Computers and the robotic devices that can now carry them can defeat human beings at chess, repair expensive technology in space and deliver world destroying nuclear payloads from 30,000 feet.

But can they think? Will they someday think on their own?

Many, who are in the business or rather the science of computers say yes.

We are now even using computers to help design and create even more sophisticated computers. They are so sophisticated yet so easy to use that most humans who are using them in their daily lives can offer little or no explanation as to how they are made or even as to what makes them work.

But will computers ever develop consciousness or  have a soul?

Most who are in the business or rather the science of computers would probably say, “Perhaps consciousness but how does one define a soul?”

But in any case, here is my question:

With consciousness computers will be able to become completely autonomous. Yet they will owe their creation to creatures who for all intents and purposes will be inferior to them in all respects as we now measure superiority among humans.

So in light of our human discoveries and creations and the creations that we expect to be…might it not be possible that who or what we call God is a lesser creature than we expect or surmise? Perhaps even inferior to us?

This might be a blasphemous thought to some who read this but in light of what we are now seeing possible on Earth perhaps this is why God does not intervene in the affairs of men and perhaps why we someday will not interfere in the affairs of computers…

Just a thought… because, well…that’s what we humans do.
