The Technological Singularity and Theology


One of the things predicted by many religions is that there will be an end time when the world is either perfected or abandoned. The world’s human inhabitants will then advance to a more harmonious relationship with God. In my opinion, the Singularity and these predictions are one and the same. I view the Singularity as a kind of birthing process. When a woman gives birth, she pushes the baby out. However, there is typically a midwife or doctor that is simultaneously pulling the baby out. I view the Singularity as a process wherein technology acts as the mother pushing humanity closer to God. Simultaneously, God acts as the doctor pulling humanity closer to him. In other words, the Singularity is part of the means by which God will perfect our universe.

I suggest that without facts they were believing by faith and that faith is non predictive. It is belief and hope. Prediction is an if/then logical process of analyzing patterns and trends to extrapolate a future environment. Religion has always been about faith. If the evidence was there, everyone would believe and knowone would be special or morally superior.
