2084: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity | John C. Lennox

Where did we come from? Where we are going? The answers to these questions inform both our understanding of who we are and what we live for.

Through the ages, people have turned to science, philosophy, religion, and politics to satisfy their curiosity and their cravings for answers. Now, in the twenty-first century, the question of where we are going has become tied to technological advancements and is given a new urgency by the development of artificial intelligence.

But what does the often unsolicited and unrestricted incorporation of AI in our lives mean for us? For our individual and corporate privacy? Our political and personal freedom? The security of our jobs? Indeed for the future of our species as a whole?

What implications do advances in AI have on our worldviews in general and the God question in particular?

In the new 2084 series, scientist and philosopher John C. Lennox addresses the questions of where humanity is going. It’s a thought-provoking, balanced, and engaging resource on technology, meaning, and what it means to be a human being created in the image of God.

The 2084 series shows you how the Christian worldview, when properly understood, can provide evidence-based, credible answers that will bring real hope for the future of humanity.

  1. When preachers have access to the surveillance and AI information calculated about you; When they can turn on the speaker and camera of your cell phone and monitor you while you make love to your wife, then use your pillow talk from the pulpit the following sunday after greeting you extra warmly as you walk into the church, doesn't that violate the marriage bed. They say it is interest based only. That they don't randomly incroche like that. Yet none are righteous, not even one. When you give such power to any man, there is opportunity for overreach. And no preacher will ever be welcome in my bed or welcome to have access like that to my wife, nieces, etc. They pass it off as if they are getting their info directly thru the divine inspiration of the Holy Ghost as they preach. False preachers, freemason city workers, and thugs that no how to deny everything are their primary niche for allowing access to this secretive information. That's how you keep a criminal organization going and prosperous.

  2. 3:10 – "no matter what they believe": ANYTHING can be believed, since no reasoning is required to believe.  As someone once said, "No one thinks God exists: they only believe it."  Assuming god does exist, all he endowed us with to understand is reason, and there's no chain of reasoning the inevitable conclusion of which is "Therefore, God exists".  If there was, EVERYONE would believe.

  3. My upbringing is hardwired toward atheism. I’m a product of mainstream teaching from the UK late 1970’s onward. I find it unbelievably difficult to believe in a god – even though I actually prefer and agree with a theist worldview. Videos like this do help. Maybe I’ll get there one day.

  4. That's good stuff ..one question though …why would Christianity be "the true religion". Why wouldn't be Islam or Judaism or, for that matter Zoroastrianism or Buddhism the true religion of God ?..

    All of these religions have the same merits as Christianity to be the true religion ..moreover, they all also can produce good documentary like this ..speaking with sympathy , empathy and passion with touchy music in the background ….anyway ,,i always liked you John…

  5. hes got an acute understanding of theology .I was born about 20 miles from him in Co Armagh but from the catholic tradition .But ive seen him demolish many arguments with his Irish wit ..

  6. He brings forth the living from the dead and brings forth the dead from the living, and gives life to the earth after its death, and thus shall you be brought forth.

    And of His signs is this: He created you of dust, and behold you human beings, ranging widely!

    And one of His signs is that He created mates for you from yourselves that you may find rest in them, and He put between you love and compassion; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect

    And one of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your tongues and colors; most surely there are signs in this for the learned.

    And one of His signs is your sleeping and your seeking of His grace by night and (by) day; most surely there are signs in this for a people who would hear.

    And one of His signs is that He shows you the lightning for fear and for hope, and sends down water from the clouds then gives life therewith to the earth after its death; most surely there are signs in this for a people who understand

    And one of His signs is that the heaven and the earth subsist by His command, then when He calls you with a (single) call from out of the earth, lo! you come forth.

    And His is whosoever is in the heavens and the earth; all are obedient to Him.

    And He it is Who originates the creation, then reproduces it, and it is easy to Him; and His are the most exalted attributes in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.

    Al-Room verse 30 chapter 10 – 27

  7. I'm one minute into this vid, and I had to stop to comment.
    Listen: "christianity" requires a "christ" of some sort – which means (implies) that we are born "sinners" and need to be "saved" by this "savior" from eternal damnation.
    There is NO evidence of any such paradigm, and anything that follows from it needs to be considered as bullshit.
    We are all born sweet, tiny Earthly beings, who need love and guidance – and NOT some vague threat of an all-seeing overlord scaring the shit out of us.
    I'm watching the rest of this vid to get more information about his POV, but I assure whomever might be reading this, it is, at essence, BS, without better evidence.
    ALSO – Even if his premise is perfectly TRUE…it is utter BS (evil) that any god/s would produce or support it. This kind of god needs to be taken to the woodshed.
    ALSO – bear in mind that there have evolved two TYPES of "god/s": The local/personal, and the non-local (universal) IMpersonal, and that they are always conflated to be or seem the same type of entity.
    OK. On with the show.

  8. perhaps, after an eternity of being recognized as most beautiful and favored pushed Lucifer to Wonder about His Own Will or maybe he saw the Avocado and thought….IS THAT Perfection?? that was almost the pebble that threw me outta line! So, if Freewill Caused such outcomes, Heaven would tweak it or drop it eh? WHAT if Freewill was Required to produce the Life God was after….Maybe…..Freewill IS the Devil!!!

  9. AI is an Invention and Innovation…NOT a Creation…only God Creates…"THINK" how modern man over the last 8,000 years Invent & Innovate in the last 80 years a TOOL for Destruction of Mind-Body & SOUL…is the END near in 8 years??? Only The Father KNOWS!!!!

  10. I know why Christianity is always at war with each other. YouTube the unavoidable unmistakable identify of Antichrist by David Assherick also YouTube cosmic conflict the origins of evil by Dough Bachelor. The war over worship did not originate on this planet but it will end here

  11. Origin, Meaning , Morality and Destiny.
    It is our knowledge of the start, the end, the objective and the rules of the game that allows us the freedom to play and enjoy it in a meaningful way! Without the answers to those four fundamental questions we can only pretend and hope that no one recognizes that we have no idea what we're doing or why we're doing it! Only the Christian God has the answers to those four questions, Origin, Meaning, Morality and Destiny, where did we come from, what is the meaning of life and how should we live in light of it. And lastly, Destiny, where are we going?

  12. Dr. Lennox has mastered the art of delivery of apologetics. He doesn't come across as arrogant or condescending and that is extremely important. A lot of apologist's come across as cocky and "holier than thou" and they don't get anyone to actually listen. Delivery is critical. God bless John Lennox
