Imagine having lived in the generation that discovered fire.
Very swiftly, current scientific and technological advances will reorder our lives just as much. Artificial Intelligence, decoding the human genome, links between mind and computer… All these things that were once science fiction are now quickly—and absolutely—becoming science fact.
Could machines become sentient?
Is “life” a computer simulation?
Does science really have a genetic blueprint for all human life?
Believers and unbelievers alike are easily unnerved by such questions. Interestingly though, early Christians, mathematicians, scientists, and philosophers have already addressed these kinds of issues. And they have much to say about our “curiouser and curiouser” new world.
