Humanity will evolve to technology-based god-like collective consciousness, says transhumanist

Brilliant scientist/technologist Peter Diamandis has been spreading his “gospel” of transhumanism around the globe for several years now, laying out what he envisions for the future of humanity. Diamandis takes issue with the constant negativity in various publications and media that leans toward making us believe our future is dystopian. As he puts it, “I’m someone who believes we’re headed toward an extraordinary future.”

He sees all forms of life as technology, which is contradictory since all technologies that have ever existed owe that existence to a designer yet Diamandis is an avowed evolutionist, believing that the “technology” he calls life somehow randomly put itself together. Claiming that we’ve gone as far as we can go under biological evolution, Diamandis believes our next moves forward in evolution must be based on electronic technologies so we can become a god-like omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent collective consciousness with the capability of solving any and all problems we encounter, including poverty and sickness. And this is the type of thinking he has persuaded Silicon Valley to embrace.

(The first 12:50 of this video are especially interesting)

Mr. Diamandis sounds very convincing, but he is simply giving us the same ol’, same ol’ new world order ideas presented in a different package. When he speaks of a collective “meta-consciousness,” that is the same thing the Antichrist will want when he rises to power. His global governance will require that all people be in agreement with him by taking his mark so “that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name,” (Revelation 13:17). The Antichrist will also want to be like God, most likely using technology “to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed,” (Revelation 13:15).

Whenever someone like Mr. Diamandis works from the premise of promising humankind that their methods will make us like God, true saints should automatically see a red flag that takes us back to what Satan promised in the Garden of Eden–“ye shall be as gods…” (Genesis 3). This is the true spirit behind the transhumanist thinking of Diamandis, whether he knows it or not. It’s also curious that he totally denies man’s biggest problem–his sin nature. This can never be resolved by anything man can conjure up and is always the thing that hinders us from reaching our penultimate aspirations of complete peace, extinction of sicknesses, and extinction of poverty.

Essentially, Diamandis offers us a way for us to be our own lords and saviors which is doomed to fail, just like all those who came before him making the same types of promises. I think I’ll stick with Jehovah’s plan since he’s the one who has proven himself by his fulfilled prophecies, scientific knowledge, and historical accuracy. His way, truth, and life, aka the Lord Jesus, has given me a peace that surpasses all understanding that no other entity–human or otherwise–could ever come close to matching.

  1. “true saints should automatically see a red flag that takes us back to what Satan promised in the Garden of Eden–“ye shall be as gods…” (Genesis 3).”

    Have you read this?

    John 10:31-36New International Version (NIV)

    31 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”

    33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”

    34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’[a]? 35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?

    https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+10%3A31-36&version=NIV

    Jesus is quoting from Psalm 82:6 (“I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’) here. His argument is very clear

    1. If it is written in your law that “ye are gods” …
    2. And your scriptures are inerrant (“cannot be broken”)
    3. Then what is your problem if I say that I am a son of God?

    In the original Koine Greek it is very clear that Jesus is not claiming to be “The Son of God” as in the one only one. The KJV translates it wrongly (why I used NIV above, although it has its problems too).

    The Apostle Paul talked of us as being sons of God and being a temple to God. In New Age thought some folks clearly recognize, as did Jesus, that lying inert in all of us is the capacity to be a son of God. We are all the prodigal son who has to learn where his true home is and who the true Father is.

    1. You’re a New Ager, so of course you wouldn’t understand the correct interpretation of God’s word. “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned,” (1 Corinthians 2:14).

      The context determines the definition of the words in the kjv. I can understand your affinity to the NIV since the manuscripts it’s based on are the 1% that New Agers embrace since it lines up with your false doctrines, such as denying that Jesus is the only begotten son and the only way to God.

      [In the original Koine Greek it is very clear that Jesus is not claiming to be “The Son of God” as in the one only one.]

      Wrong again. I discuss at length the many times Jesus made it clear he was God in the flesh in this post–> https://sunandshield.wordpress.com/2009/06/29/jesus-christ-claimed-to-be-god/

      I also explain your bastardized version of the John 10 passage in this post–> https://sunandshield.wordpress.com/2013/12/10/aspiring-to-godhood-deviating-from-the-godhead/

      I’ll quote an excerpt from that post:

      What Jesus said and what Psalm 82 says is founded on what we are told in Exodus 22, according to the “law of first mention.” This means the Bible will use a term for the first time that carries an understanding all the way through scripture. Exodus 22:28 says the following:

      Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people.

      The word “gods” used here is the Hebrew “elohim,” which is a term that is used for God, but this context tells us it doesn’t mean men are elevated to superhuman, supernaturally divine godhood. The word here is simply defined by the phrase following it. A “god” is a ruler of the people who, by implication, is worthy of honor and respect. …

      In John 10:34-38 where Jesus quotes Psalm 82, which is based on Exodus 22, Jesus is doing a play on words. Psalm 82 implies “gods” are worthy of honor and respect when they do the Lord’s bidding. So if Christ by his works shows his sanctification, being set apart even from the “gods” by going over and above what the “gods” in the time of the Psalms accomplished, should he not be worthy of even greater respect and honor and not stoned? This is essentially the question he posed to the murderous Jewish leaders.

      nas2431, even your beloved NIV contradicts itself. On the one hand it tries to imply all of us need to awaken the Christ-consciousness in us to reach our ascended state, e.g. heaven. But John 14:6 in the NIV says, “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” That’s a statement of exclusivity, meaning he is the only Christ there is and the only one who can get us to have a relationship with the Father. And he wasn’t talking about any god or “Christ-consciousness” that you believe dwells in all or that the NIV implies elsewhere is in everyone.

  2. “…even your beloved NIV contradicts itself.”

    Actually I am quite fond of the KJV and have used it often in the past, but in some places the NIV is more accurate. One example is found in this post I made a while back:

    Son of God?
    http://www.thenewagesite.com/index.php/jesus-christ/son-of-god/

    In the KJV John 10:36 it has Jesus say: “I am _the_ Son of God?”

    The definite article “the” simply does not exist in the original Greek. As I say in the article I am not an expert on Koine Greek, but I have consulted some people who truly are and they have told me that when the definite article is not given, then the indefinite “a” would be appropriate in translation.

    So a more accurate translation would have been “I am _a_ Son of God” (of course we are capitalizing words here based on our theology perhaps too, and that was not in the original either).

    Some other translations, including the NIV find clever ways to get around the “the” not being in the original, e.g.:

    ‘I am God’s Son’? New International Version
    Son of God I am? Young’s Literal Translation
    ‘Son of God am I’? Concordant Literal New Testament

    I am not fanatical about translations. The Concordant is probably one of the more accurate ones, but read horribly in my view. The KJV, whatever its flaws, often reads like poetry.

    “But John 14:6 in the NIV says, “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” That’s a statement of exclusivity, meaning he is the only Christ there is and the only one who can get us to have a relationship with the Father.”

    Actually the “Father” that Jesus is referring to is the Christ, which overshadowed Jesus of Nazareth, the man. My friend and author Joseph J. Dewey explains that in this article.

    The Overshadowing Of Jesus
    http://www.thenewagesite.com/index.php/j-j-dewey/the-overshadowing-of-jesus/

    My personal theory, based on some facts and a fair amount of conjecture, is that Jesus of Nazareth is the reincarnation of Abraham. I wrote something on that a while back, but don’t find it right now. May write that again.

    In synopsis it is based on Abraham meeting Melchizidek at the beginning of the Bible, being tested to see if he could give up what was most precious to hm, his hope through Aaron. If he could do that then he could face the sacrifice of the cross.

    Later we find Melchizidec (sp?) in Hebrews where Jesus becomes a priest in his order forever. Finally in John we have Jesus testifying that Abraham longed to see his day and did in fact see it (which nearly led the Pharisees to kill him there but he escaped their hands).

    Anyway, I have nothing against you thinking it is all nonsense and believing you have the way and the only way. I think many people who are devoted Christians today probably cheered them being fed to the lions in previous lives. 🙂

    1. nas2431,

      You are totally deceived when it comes to the accuracy of the word of God, aka the KJV. Just because someone calls themselves an expert doesn’t mean they actually know God or his word. Everyday life should tell you that if you’re paying attention. Remember when the “experts” told us eggs were really bad for our health? Or when they thought baby formula was healthier than breast milk for babies? 99% of the manuscripts use the definite article in John 10:36 when Jesus said he was “the” Son of God. Those same experts you’re talking about would most likely tell you that the Pope and his RCC represent one branch of Christianity when Catholicism is actually idolatrous paganism, just like your New Age false doctrines.

      Your statements are nothing but Satanic-based picking at God’s word that has been going on since Satan duped Eve in the Garden of Eden. You are ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (2 Tim. 3:7) because you’ve allowed Satan to blind your mind (2 Corinthians 4:4) with lies dressed up to look like knowledge when it’s actually just directions on the path leading straight to hell. You need to repent before it’s too late and make your paths straight before the Lord.

      1. “…the path leading straight to hell.”

        Which brings up an interesting question. How do you know that where you are right now is not the real Hell? Wouldn’t that be a surprise. If you look at life and how many people suffer, can you imagine a more perfected Hell?

        Only a child God would put people in a place where they suffer always. A more clever God would create a place where you can, often for most of a lifetime, feel all is good, only to be met with implacable and soul rendering tragedy at some point? The Earth itself is a far more clever Hell than the one imagined by Dante. In his Hell there was no hope. Here there is hope, but often for many hope that is in vain.

        My view, and I know you will disagree, is that part of our job is to turn Hell into Heaven then the Holy Jerusalem may come down among men as described at the end of Revelation (literally the “unveiling of Jesus Christ”).

      2. nas2431,

        Have you even read what type of people go to hell and what lengths God has gone through for them to avoid it? He’s given everything to prevent it, but he doesn’t force people to accept it. That’s how a just God operates–he punishes those who reject his agreement and allows people to suffer the consequences of their own actions when they reject his terms of payment. People choose to go to hell themselves. And those who end up there are liars, thieves, adulterers, murderers, rapists, and any other person who says “I love sin, not God” by rejecting the Lord Jesus. You’re simply making excuses for all of those people by saying they shouldn’t go to hell, they shouldn’t be punished for their wrongdoings even if they harm society and make Earth the hell that it is for some people.

        Then I guess you think it’s wrong for societies to lock up criminals or for civil courts to make defendants pay damages to those they injured. You’re essentially excusing their bad behavior and excusing bad behavior encourages more bad behavior. If we follow your reasoning it would make society worse, not better.

  3. I won’t keep bothering you but did one to say just one more thing.

    You wrote:

    “You’re simply making excuses for all of those people by saying they shouldn’t go to hell, they shouldn’t be punished …”

    I have never said that. Jesus said in Matthew 5:26:

    “Verily I say unto thee, thou shalt by no means come out thence until thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.”

    We are “cast into prison” (Matthew 5:25) for our sins and one way or another we must pay or atone and overcome (make hell into heaven). The Apostle Paul said:

    ” Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” (Galatians 6:-7-8)

    ” I guess you think it’s wrong for societies to lock up criminals or for civil courts to make defendants pay damages to those they injured. You’re essentially excusing their bad behavior and excusing bad behavior encourages more bad behavior. If we follow your reasoning it would make society worse, not better.”

    Except I never “reasoned” as you suggest above. In fact more often than you might imagine a person in one life is innocently accused, imprisoned, and sometimes executed not for a a real crime they committed in that life, but for one in a previous life. What goes around comes around, if not in one life, in another.

    And that answers the question about God being just, by the way (e.g., how does a perfectly loving God allow so much apparent evil if he has the absolute power to prevent it, i.e., the classical “problem of evil”).

      You can believe in the false doctrine of reincarnation if you choose, but “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment,” (Hebrews 9:27). The Lord Jesus, the only God-man there is, showed us in the parable of Lazarus and the rich man that no one is reincarnated. The rich man did not come back from hell even after he made pleas that someone, such as Lazarus, should be sent back to Earth to warn his brothers about the real hell before they die. Abraham’s reply, which is in line with the God of heaven, was that his brothers had God’s written word through God’s prophets (Luke 16). And we know what Moses and the prophets said is 100% reliable by the prophecies fulfilled throughout history and by the scientific facts they present before those facts were discovered to be true. This is the true word of God which does not in any way validate the false doctrines of your New Age doctrines. And I stand by my assessment of your false reasoning about hell and people who end up there.
