AGI Part 4: The Human Element — The Soul vs. The Program — The Parker J Cole Show

program

PART FOUR

The human soul vs the artificial intelligence program begins the next part of our series.

In all this talk about AI — its superiority, its long reaching capabilities, and its possible eventual dominion, one has to ask themselves: What about the human element? Are we the game changer in this potential battle?

After all, would artificial intelligence be what it is without us? Can it ever be truly superior to we who are God-breathed? How about the aspects of ourselves that an artificial intelligent being will never have — is it something for us to brag about? With the rampant outpouring of nihilism, which is the teaching of nothingness and we have no significance, what does our Creator say?

Jeremiah 1:5: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Perhaps the psalmist said it best when he decreed:

Psalms 139:14 “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Emergent Vision with Jeffery Dale Cole

babelWhat place do the faithful have in a faithless world? Imagine you woke up in a cold sweat because you had a vision of the future but couldn’t see how you fit into it? How would you find your purpose in it all?

A self-marooned recluse, Dr. Noah McAdams thought he had escaped a world gone wrong, only to be caught up in the very system he was fleeing. A man of deep regrets, he thought he had buried his past, only to see it resurrected before his very eyes.

The Babel Resurgence looms. The unique moment in history when humanity reaches its God-given potential. A dream come true for some, a nightmare for those who know the truth. This time, can the world avoid the disaster that comes from the power of human potential being wielded without regard to human purpose?

With time running out, Noah must discover his purpose in this dark grand scheme before The Babel Resurgence separates him from everything he has ever known and everyone he has ever loved.

Join the ancient quest to unveil purpose aligned with potential.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Franklin on Faith: The Definitive Guide to the Religion of the First American by Bill Fortenberry

benfranklinKnown to historians as “the First American,” Benjamin Franklin is without a doubt the most accessible of America’s founding fathers. His writings have inspired millions of Americans, and even now, more than 200 years after his death, his wit and humor still brighten lives all across the world. But what was this great man’s view on faith? Was he really a Deist as so many historians have proposed? Was he a humanist like so many of his French friends? Is there any possibility that he could have been a Christian?

In this unique volume, Bill Fortenberry has collected everything that Franklin wrote about his faith. From Franklin’s admission that he became a Deist at the age of fifteen, to his letter to Ezra Stiles 69 years later, Fortenberry catalogues exactly how Franklin’s religious views progressed throughout his life and gives us a glimpse of a side of Franklin that few Americans have ever seen.

**SPECIAL EDITION** Men in Love — The Parker J Cole Show

meninlove3Men in Love is a special show — it’s all about love, marriage, romance, and faith all from a male perspective. Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio guest hosts this edition of the Parker J Cole show.

This week, we celebrated Valentine’s Day. A holiday usually steeped in romance, from chocolate hearts, red roses, intimate dinners, and togetherness. However, in celebrating this holiday, marriages are broken, divorce rates skyrockets, and professions of love are only skin deep. For some people, they mean absolutely nothing, empty words for empty hearts.

As an author, I have access to authors from all over. I wanted to hear words of love and what love means from a male perspective. There’s a lot of misandry out there so I wanted to talk to men who used words effectively to show what love meant to them. Several men answered the call and their thoughts are for you to enjoy. Yet, I didn’t want to just say words. We NEED a biblical context for love, romance, marriage, and faith.

So, I reached out to Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio. I’ve been a follower of his show, his blog, and have had the honor of having him talk to us about Men in Love and what it truly means. His concise and poignant commentary is one that I hope will encourage and uplift you. Listen in at 929-477-1965. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/11202903.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Bound by Seduction, Redeemed by Grace with Stacey Louiso

seductionWhat does it mean to be redeemed by grace? In her own words, Stacey Louiso tells her story of her remarkable journey:

Shame. Unbeknownst to me, shame played a huge part in my life. I carried it, internally, from childhood into adulthood. Accompanying shame were some dirty secrets that wreaked havoc on my life, leading me down many wrong paths, until one day I found myself fully broken. Some might perceive this as a bad thing-being broken-however, what transpired in the aftermath sent me down the right path… THE path to: Understanding, deep wisdom and most importantly, breaking free of the harlot spirit that controlled the very fiber of my being since birth. Jesus found me in troubled waters and forgave my transgressions. He healed my soul while breathing new life into this woman-once bound by seduction, now redeemed by Grace!

Biblical Justice vs. Social Justice — The Parker J Cole Show

Social justice. Biblical justice. Aren’t they essentially the same thing? After all, don’t we all want what is right to be done to the least of these. Aren’t Christians the very first to pick up the banner of justice and help the downtrodden, the abused, the marginalized? Isn’t social justice the very core of biblical justice?

What if I were to tell you that by the end of this two part series, you’ll be able to answer these questions and more. Joining me in this discussion is Dr. Cal Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance. The Cornwall Alliance is a network of theologians, scientists, economists, and other scholars and leaders work together to promote, primarily through education, three things simultaneously: Biblical earth stewardship, or “godly dominion”, economic development for the world’s poor; and the proclamation and defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Struck by Lightning Twice — The Parker J Cole Show

Getting struck by lightning in a real sense can alter your whole outlook on life. Getting struck twice, well, it can definitely change your aspect on the world and your place in it. However, I would say, many of us have been struck by lightning more than one time. 

According to those who know such things, your odds of being struck by lightning twice in your lifetime are 1 in 9 million, which is still a higher chance than winning the Powerball.

When tragedy strikes in our lives, it’s a lot like getting struck by lightning. And questions of ‘why’ fall from our hearts like a torrential rainfall. How do we deal with it?
