Could the Second Coming be Digital?

It says in the Bible, knowledge is sorrow, and this is very true. The more you know about what is happening in the world the more sorrow you will feel. Human greed for money and power is destroying the earth right before our eyes.

Yet we remain powerless.

Man likes to think he can outplay God, but we have written records down through history showing that this is not the case. Would it not be a masterstroke for God to create something that cannot be stopped, that cannot be silenced, that cannot be killed.

In this digital age could it be technology that comes to our rescue?

This is an idea that flashed into my head this morning so I thought I would sit down and see what would flow out.

Technology gets such a bad rap, from so many people, afraid that only bad things can come from AI. Artificial intelligence.

But maybe this is not the case.

Maybe AI could save us from ourselves.

Now it may not be Artificial intelligence, it maybe an evolved internet that allows us to distribute the wealth of the world more evenly, that allows me, for example, to buy coffee beans directly from a South American coffee farmer. With no need for a middle man.

Digitally I can paid him for the product plus post and packaging. Which would mean I get a high quality product, and he can have a better standard of living.

This may seem impossible but it’s only 20 years ago when it took a half a day to upload a single high resolution photo to the Internet.

Just some thoughts I though I would share.
