Professor Of Social Epistemology Says Theologians Must Not Spoil The Road To Posthumanism But Rather Guide Society Into Nephilim Future Via Transhumanism As The Only And Pure “Science Of God”

In a time when a broad range of variously motivated humanists, scientists and technologists openly consider - sometimes with substantial financial backing - radical genetic interventions, the uploading of consciousness to machines, geoengineering and indefinite space travel and space colonisation, the theologian's voice needs to be heard. However, the theologian's role should not be one of spoiler, equivocator, fear-monger - or, for that matter, pathos provider. These are perfectly honourable roles for priests and religious people to adopt in the interests of themselves and their immediate constituencies. However, theologians by virtue of their unique focus on God are especially well-equipped to discuss the images of the human future that we are in the process of projecting and, to a certain extent, living through. In this context, as Hegel realized so well two hundred years ago, the old theological disciplines of theodicy, eschatology and soteriology have much to say to us today.

Enhanced Humans Will Employ “Beyond Biological Brains” On Their Final Path Toward Creating And Becoming Gods
Machines already have superhuman strength, speed and stamina – and one day they will have superhuman intelligence. The only reasons this may not occur is if we develop some other dangerous technology first that destroys us, or otherwise fall victim to some existential risk. But assuming that scientific and technological progress continues, human-level machine intelligence is very likely to be developed. And shortly thereafter, superintelligence […] the ultimate limits of information processing in machine substrate far exceed those of a biological cortex however far enhanced. The contrary is instead the case: human cognitive enhancement would hasten the day when machines overtake us, since smarter humans would make more rapid progress in computer science. However, it would seem on balance beneficial if the transition to the machine intelligence era were engineered and overseen by a more competent breed of human...

Will Singularity's Synth-Super-Gods Allow Mankind To Continue Being Human?
Surviving the Singularity means that humans must become part machine.  Ray Kurzweil has also presented this idea.  “Computers started out as large remote machines in air-conditioned rooms tended by white coated technicians,” he writes. “Subsequently they moved onto our desks, then under our arms, and now in our pockets. Soon, we’ll routinely put them inside our bodies and brains. Ultimately we will become more nonbiological than biological.”  Will the rise of superintelligence mean we will entirely supplant the human race? No one knows for sure. The fact that many people that are alive today will be around to find out the answer is unsettling and exciting for those aware of the direction the exponential growth of information technologies, and their encroachment into nearly every other field will have.  As Elon Musk famously Tweeted recently, AI “is potentially more dangerous than nukes.” He followed up the next day by tweeting: “Hope we’re not just the biological boot loader for digital superintelligence. Unfortunately, it is increasingly probable.”






Internet Of Things To Become A Giant Surveillance Nightmare?

The Internet of Things—the coming revolution in household appliance integration with the Internet—could well be a nightmare of privacy violation and data harvesting . The past decade has seen a revolution in microprocessing, Internet connectivity and widespread adoption of new technologies. Human beings are connected to vast sources of data and discourse through an increasing number of outlets. Phones and tablets, the first frontier of smart, social technology beyond traditional computers, have highlighted questions of privacy in media, discussion and politics. As the microprocessor revolution rages on, more and more household objects will begin to collect data, communicate with the Internet, and force us to evaluate our positions on the fine line between privacy and utility.

Will, As The Bible Predicted, Your Head & Hands Provide Your “Password”
When will we all get tired of memorizing and typing in long passwords to access our phones, our computers, our email messages, and our bank accounts? It seems that many consumers are already there — and researchers are on their way to figuring out the next authentication systems that could eventually replace the password. Methods of biometric authentication identify and verify a user based on the physiological or even behavioral characteristics that they display. Think of Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint recognition feature for the iPhone 5S, but going far beyond a simple fingerprint. Think technology that can scan and recognize the pattern of veins in your finger, verify your identity based on a photo of your face, or listen to your voice to find out who you are.

Biometrics Industry Reports New Way To Scan Fingerprints
This week at FindBiometrics we reported on news out of the University of Windsor where researchers are developing a new way to capture fingerprints. Meanwhile, both of Apple’s iPhone 6 models kept consumer biometrics in the conversation and we took a look at the many mobile modalities in our featured article of the week. This week in our featured articles section we took a look at the different modalities making mobile biometrics such a diverse and rich environment when it comes to strong authentication. This week we discovered that University of Windsor researchers are working towards improving the method through which fingerprints are scanned in law enforcement, military and border control situations. The goal of the project is to create a scanner that can successfully capture fingerprint images on subjects that have had their digits damaged either through work, by accident or on purpose. So far the group of researches has met success in building a biometric system can can scan a finger and produce a 3D image detailing 2mm into the subject’s skin.

3,600 Crystals In Wearable ‘Skin’ To Monitor Health 24/7 In Baby Steps Toward The MARK
A new wearable medical device that uses up to 3,600 liquid crystals can quickly let you know if you’re having heart trouble—or if it’s simply time to slather on some moisturizer. The small device, approximately five centimeters square, can be placed directly on the skin for around-the-clock health monitoring. The wireless technology uses thousands of tiny liquid crystals on a flexible substrate to sense heat. When the device turns color, the wearer knows something is awry. “Our device is mechanically invisible—it is ultrathin and comfortable—much like skin itself,” says Yonggang Huang, professor of civil and environmental engineering and mechanical engineering at Northwestern University. Huang and colleagues tested the device on people’s wrists. “One can imagine cosmetics companies being interested in the ability to measure skin’s dryness in a portable and non-intrusive way,” Huang says. “This is the first device of its kind.”

Are We All Persons Of Interest?
You are being watched. The government has a secret system —a machine— that spies on you every hour of every day. I know, because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror, but it sees everything. So begins the opening monologue on the CBS television show Person of Interest, spoken by the designer of 'The Machine', technology genius and billionaire, Harold Finch. The Machine is a mass surveillance computer system, monitoring data input from just about every electronic source in the world (phones, cameras, computers etc), which it analyzes in order to predict violent acts. But given its omnipotence, there are far too many predictions to act on, and so instead it is programmed to only pass on 'relevant' threats - ie. major terrorist events - to the government.


U.S. Government To Use YOUR TAX MONEY To Train 15,000 Muslim Jihadists (Who Later Will Use That Expertise TO KILL YOU And/Or Other Americans)

A Western-backed opposition force of around 12,000 to 15,000 will be needed to retake areas of eastern Syria controlled by Islamic State militants, the top U.S military officer said on Friday, as the Pentagon outlined the first steps in a U.S.-led training program that could run several years. The Pentagon said its assessment teams have already arrived in Saudi Arabia to help map out a U.S.-led program there expected to train more than 5,000 Western-backed opposition fighters in the first year. The hope is that a well-organized and equipped moderate opposition force can take advantage of U.S.-led air strikes against Sunni fundamentalist fighters from the Islamic State who have taken huge swathes of Syria. General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, cautioned that 5,000 was only a start of a long process toward defeating the group.

Muslims Answer Call Of ISIS To Kill 10 Million Americans By Decapitating American Woman In Oklahoma As Example, Surround Police With Promises Of More
In Islam, Muslims are required to offer their would-be convert an opportunity to convert first before severing their heads. When the non-Muslim refuses to convert, the mercy killing is allowed to commence. That is what happened at a Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma when a non-Muslim woman was decapitated by a former employee who was Muslim and had tried to convert his co-workers prior to being fired. My own Muslim father, an elderly man held an elderly care center hostage when the African American nurse who was caring for him refused to convert to Islam. He beat her with his cane calling her “negress” and the police had to be called. The center never heeded my prior warnings when I told them that my father was not manic depressive as they think, but he was a Muslim fanatic.

Obama’s Open Border Policy Bringing Terrorists Of Microscopic Size, Too—Welcoming Epidemics
Secretary of State John Kerry warns of a new surge of illegals, just as Central America is being hit by a new wave of epidemics. No doubt about it: President Obama's open-borders policy is exposing us to disease, too. In a background press briefing at the U.N. last Tuesday, a senior State Department official said Secretary of State John Kerry told his counterparts from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico that the pause in minors coming across our southern border was temporary, and that "we have to use this time to put in place more efforts, greater efforts to get at the root cause of this, because we know that those numbers may rise again." The next wave may be worse than the first, however, because monsoon conditions, a harsh drought and the globalization of transport are ensuring that the 50,000 or so unscreened new entrants will be bringing a raft of new diseases with them.

Why The Temple Mount Will Be A Cup Of Trembling That Gives Birth To World War III
The Muslim claim on the Temple Mount is the biggest fraud in history.  No one dares say it, but unless someone does, another world war will erupt. Right now, even as we speak, frum (pious) Jews are trying to gain access to pray on the Temple Mount.  These Jews were forbidden by Israeli courts to pray on the Temple Mount.  In the last year, they have started defying those courts and asserting a right to their patrimony. No one but the Jews has a genuine religious claim to the 35 acres of the Temple Mount, and anyone who has studied the history knows this.  Even Christians – who do have legitimate claims to other sites in the area – do not contest the Mount.  This is not arcane knowledge.  It can be gleaned in a few minutes of relatively light reading. Yet our media deceptively hides this from the public.


Expert: Obama's Border Policy & Immigration Reform Is Going To Get A Lot Of Americans Killed -- Floodgates Are Now Open For Terrorists To Easily Enter U.S.A.

A retired senior special agent for the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service has called on lawmakers to slow down on immigration reform until some key questions are answered. How, for example, will the system protect America from “transnational criminals and terrorists,” who “could easily game the legalization process by using a false name”? “Despite Senate approval of [a] bill last week, these questions have not yet been asked – let alone answered,” wrote Michael W. Cutler in a recent article for the Washington Times. He pointed out many illegal aliens from Latin American countries falsely claim to be Mexican so they will not be deported to their home countries. “They calculate they will be simply...

Terrorist: We're Finalizing Plans For "Brilliant Attack" On US
An Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist has said that the extremist Islamic group has planned an imminent attack on New York City and that his jihadist "brothers" are in the process of finalizing a plan. According to The Washington Times, Farah Shirdon, also known as Abu Usamah Somali, told VICE News "A lot of brothers there are mobilizing right now… Mobilizing for a brilliant attack, my friend." In the comments captured on video, Shirdon also called on President Barack Obama to take seriously ISIS' intention to attack the United States. "I hope Barack Obama listens to this message. I swear you infidel, I swear to almighty Allah, we will fight you until the end." He also insisted that "thousands upon thousands" of Westerners were "ready right now" to strike the United States, but that ISIS might stop its terror campaign if Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is "crucified for his war crimes."

ISIS Streaming Into US, Planning Attacks
US officials appear to have been taken by surprise by reports that IS is planning attacks on US and French subways. A senior Obama administration official has said no one in the US Government is aware of the apparent plot, which was made public by the Iraqi Prime Minister on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York. He told a small group of US reporters: "Today, while I am here, I am receiving accurate reports from Baghdad where there was arrest of few elements and there are networks planning from inside Iraq to have attacks. "They plan to have attacks in the metros of Paris and the US," he added. "From the details I have received, yes it looks credible." In an interview with CNN, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Brett McGurk said he attended a meeting between Vice President Joe Biden and Mr al Abadi on Thursday, and that Mr al Abadi...


Lone Wolves Said To Be "Biggest Terrorist Threat"

In a new report which we helped co-author, the Bipartisan Policy Center's Homeland Security Project, a successor to the 9/11 Commission, assessed the current threat posed by such "homegrown" militants. Since 9/11, jihadist terrorists have killed 25 people in the United States. Each one of those deaths is a tragedy, but none of these attacks were national catastrophes as 9/11 was. While al Qaeda and its affiliates have failed to conduct any successful attacks in the United States since 9/11, they have sought to encourage action from militant American citizens, who might be more capable of carrying out terrorist operations in the States than foreign operatives given the stringent security measures now in place.

At The UN, Obama Celebrates Islam While Praising Muslim Who Wants US Soldiers Killed
President Barack Obama favorably quoted and praised on Wednesday in his speech before the United Nations a controversial Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Obama in his remarks offered praise to controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah and referred to him as a moderate Muslim leader who can help combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) radical ideology. However, Bin Bayyah himself has long been engulfed in controversy for many of his views, including the reported backing of a 2004 fatwa that advocated violent resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq.

Sharon Gilbert On The 1.5 Million That Could Be Ebola Infected By January And The CDC’s Dire Predictions About The Outbreak
This morning, I received an urgent email blast from the Centers for Disease Control containing an early release of this week’s ‘Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report’ (MMWR), which as you might expect comes out earlier than usual due to the urgent message contained within its paragraphs. This is a scientific, statistical analysis of the outbreak numbers, and weighing the actual reported infections/deaths against the likelihood of under-reporting, and then further plotting that on a timeline graph, the CDC’s number crunchers estimate that West Africa could have as many as 1.5 MILLION active cases by end of January, 2015. We’ve all seen those hockey stick graphs, but this one is chilling. These are the combined estimates of active cases in Sierra Leone and Libera. Note that the graph on the left is active cases in total (pay close attention to the ‘corrected number’), while the graph on the right is the total number of hospital beds. 1.5 Million sick versus about 100,000 hospital beds...

Vatican To Decide Whether It Too Will Begin Publically Embracing The Days Of Lot
In light of a changing world and attitudes by millions of people, the Catholic Church has decided to review how it communicates its doctrine in an attempt to better appeal to people, particularly the younger generations, which tend to be more socially liberal. In October, Pope Francis called an Extraordinary Synod of Bishops, which will be divided into two sessions: one in 2014, the other in 2015. According to the Catholic News Service, the first session will be held from Oct. 5-19 in the Vatican and will evaluate the state of the family. The second meeting will convene to create proposals for whatever issues the first convention discovers. According to the NCR, respondents also asked for a "faster and simpler" annulment process, which would involve both local bishops and lay Catholics.

Israeli Archaeologists Dig Up Lavish Subterranean Structure Near Temple Mount
“It’s one of the [most] impressive, beautiful and grand places found recently in Jerusalem,” Israel Antiquities Authority Jerusalem Region Archaeologist Yuval Baruch told the station. “It is one of the most significant remains” found in Jerusalem in the last generation,” he said. The ongoing excavations, which are taking place beneath the Western Wall plaza in the former Mughrabi Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, feature a Mamluk-era caravansary dating to the Middle Ages and remains of lavish public buildings from the Herodian period, over 2,000 years ago, some 20 meters (65 feet) from the Temple Mount. The IAA has conducted the “most extensive preservation work ever done in Jerusalem” to restore the Mamluk building ahead of its intended opening to the public.  

Palestinians Irate As ‘Third Temple With Underground Parking’ Raises $105,000
The new Jewish Temple will offer millions of pilgrims underground parking, according to a new plan that just received the endorsement of hundreds of supporters who put their money where their faith is. An Israeli right wing organization known as the Temple Institute has announced on Sunday that its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to support modern architectural plans for the third Jewish temple in Jerusalem has concluded successfully on Rosh Hashanah, having picked up $104,814 in 60 days. The campaign’s goal had been $100,000. The first Jewish temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 586 BCE; the second in 70 CE. The Temple Institute campaign began on August 5, which was the first day of the Jewish month of Av, the time of year associated with the destruction of both temples.

As Antichrist Preps Unveiling, Temple Institute Moves Forward With Third Temple Plan

The Temple Institute’s crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the modern architectural plans for the Third Holy Temple in Jerusalem came to a close on Rosh Hashanah after surpassing its $100,000 goal in 60 days. The initiative began on the first day of the month of Av, when Jews commemorate the destruction of the ancient Holy Temples. Almost 900 pledges have come in from more than 30 countries worldwide. Crowdfunding is a new method of fundraising that leverages the power of the Internet to gather investments or contributions from around the world. The Temple Institute used the Indiegogo platform to reach out to supporters, with links to social media pages, like Facebook, where the campaign page received 10,000 shares. A promotional video on the Facebook and Indiegogo pages, which depicts a digital rendition of the Holy Temple on the modern day Temple Mount, has been viewed by over 160,000 people.



Dr. Stanley Monteith, Host Of Radio Liberty, Passes Away
Dr. Stanley Monteith, the nationally syndicated radio host and author who spent nearly 50 years exposing the globalist agenda, paving the way for many patriots to do the same, passed away this morning at the age of 85. For many decades, Dr. Monteith blazed the trail for liberty radio and his tireless work revolutionized the liberty movement. “Dr. Stan,” as he was known, served on the front lines warning of the spiritual battle taking place between good and evil and did tremendous work in exposing the vast network of secret societies and mysterious forces behind the men who make up the “Brotherhood of Darkness.” He was also a pioneer in warning about the dangers of fluoride, vaccines and America’s fiat Federal Reserve currency. Dr. Monteith was a good friend of Defender Publishing’s CEO Thomas Horn (his publisher for Brotherhood of Darkness). Together they did untold hours of radio together over the years as well as conferences where they often spoke side by side. Dr. Stan will be missed by all of us at Raiders News Update and Defender Publishing and our heartfelt prayers are with his family at this time.

Blood On Altar War Expanding As Christian Influence Is Purged From Public Life
It’s hard to imagine that any school would have a problem with a book about a Christian family that helped Jews escape the Holocaust. But Springs Charter Schools in Temecula, Calif., not only had a problem with The Hiding Place, they also took issue with any other book that was written by a Christian author or included a Christian message. “We do not purchase sectarian educational materials and do not allow sectarian materials on our state-authorized lending shelves,” Superintendent Kathleen Hermsmeyer wrote in a letter to attorneys at the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI). Why would a public charter school take issue with books written by Christians? Pacific Justice Institute is representing a parent who discovered what they called a “Christian purging” of the charter school’s library.

Transhumanists See Krell "Themes" In Forbidden Planet
Forbidden Planet is a 1956 American science fiction film that is relevant to transhumanists. It offers an interesting cautionary tale and covers a variety of topics such as intelligence augmentation, robotics, interplanetary travel and the creation of a Great Machine that can accomplish any purpose. In the 23rd century, the starship C-57D travels to the distant planet Altair IV to discover the fate of an expedition sent 20 years earlier. After entering orbit, the C-57 receives a transmission from Dr. Edward Morbius who is one of the missing expedition’s scientists. He states no assistance is necessary and warns the ship to stay away, but Commander John Adams (Leslie Nielsen) insists on landing and investigating further. They are met on arrival by Robby the Robot  who is probably the most famous and iconic fictional robot from the era in any film or TV program. Robby takes Adams to Morbius’s home along with two senior crew members, Lieutenant Farman and Lieutenant “Doc” Ostrow.

Sharon Gilbert On ‘Forbidden Planet’ Krell & Transhumanist Themes In ‘Blood On The Altar’

"Like you, the Krell forgot one deadly danger: their own subconscious hate and lust for destruction. The beast. The mindless primitive. Even the Krell must have evolved from that beginning. And so those mindless beasts of the subconscious had access to a machine that could never be shut down. The secret devil of every soul on the planet…all set free at once to loot and maim…and take revenge and kill!" (—MGM’s Forbidden Planet) Some of you may recognize the above quote as a conversation from the ending to MGM’s 1956 science fiction film, Forbidden Planet. This cult classic movie centers on a rather eccentric but brilliant scientist named Dr. Edward Morbius (played by Walter Pidgeon) and his innocent teenage daughter Altaira (Anne Francis). Morbius is the only surviving original member of a doomed expedition from earth sent to...



Even Some Baptist Churches Are Embracing Days Of Lot
The SBC Executive Committee was acting in its ad interim capacity on behalf of the Convention itself. Between the annual meetings of the Southern Baptist Convention, the Executive Committee fulfills its functions. When the SBC met earlier this year in Baltimore, Southern Baptists had just learned days before that the New Heart Community Church had affirmed its pastor in declaring a “third way” on the issue of homosexuality — in effect allowing for the affirmation of same-sex sexuality and relationships. In an hour-long video posted to the church’s website, Pastor Danny Cortez explained his personal change of mind on the question of homosexuality and traced his journey back to an August day in 2013 when “I realized I no longer believed in the traditional teachings regarding homosexuality.”

Stephen Hawking Says 'There Is No God.' [But Someday He’ll Know Better]
Stephen Hawking says he's an atheist, arguing that science offers a "more convincing explanation" for the origins of the universe and that the miracles of religion "aren't compatible" with scientific fact. "Before we understood science, it was natural to believe that God created the universe, but now science offers a more convincing explanation," the celebrated physicist said in a video posted by Spanish newspaper El Mundo. "What I meant by 'we would know the mind of God' is we would know everything that God would know if there was a God, but there isn't. I'm an atheist." Hawking's remarks came in response to a question from El Mundo journalist Pablo Jauregui, who quizzed Hawking about...

Will ET Be Here Soon? NASA Brings Scientists/Theologians Together To Prepare
In large part, thanks to NASA's Kepler spacecraft, more than 1,400 planets have been identified beyond Earth. A few days ago, NASA tried closing the gap between life on Earth and the possibilities of life elsewhere. The space agency and the Library of Congress (image below left) brought together scientists, historians, philosophers and theologians from around the world for a two-day symposium, "Preparing For Discovery." Their agenda: To explore how we prepare for the inevitable discovery of extraterrestrial life including intelligent beings. "If you find microbes, that's one thing. If you find intelligence, it's another. And if they communicate, it's something else, and depending on what they say, it's something else!" said astronomer, symposium organizer and former chief NASA historian, Steven J. Dick.

Mars Rover Spots Göbekli Tepe-Like Artifacts On Mars, Leaves NASA Asserting The Impossible: That Perfect Spheres And Totems Are ‘Natural Formations’

Two more unusually shaped rock formations have been discovered on the surface of the Red Planet. The first of the two most recent finds is a rock formation that looks a bit like a set of traffic lights. It consists of a tall stone with several small stones spaced vertically up the side of it. "I saw this one and I thought 'hang on, that looks a bit strange,'" said space video journalist Joe Smith who first came across the object. "I posted it on the internet and people said they thought it looked like a set of traffic lights too - although some people did say it looked like a totem pole." The second object, a perfectly spherical rock, was found a few days earlier by NASA themselves. Scientists explained that the ball was likely to have been formed by repeated compacting and hardening - a process known...

The 5,000-Year-Old Sunken City In Southern Greece
In the Peloponnesus region of southern Greece there is a small village called Pavlopetri, where a nearby ancient city dating back 5,000 years resides. However, this is not an ordinary archaeological site – the city can be found about 4 meters underwater and is believed to be the oldest known submerged city in the world. The city is incredibly well designed with roads, two storey houses with gardens, temples, a cemetery, and a complex water management system including channels and water pipes.  In the center of the city, was a square or plaza measuring about 40×20 meters and most of the buildings have been found with up to 12 rooms inside. The design of this city surpasses the design of many cities today.

What Total Recall Can Teach Us About Memory, Virtue
As it happens, last Thursday the excellent folks at Future Tense hosted one of their “My Favorite Movie” nights here in Washington D.C., playing that very film and holding a discussion afterwards with one of my favorite academics, Stanford’s Francis Fukuyama. The theme of the discussion was the relationship between memory and personal identity — are we defined by our memories? Much to my dismay the discussion of this topic, which is of course the central theme of the movie, strayed quite far from the details of the film. Indeed, in his initial remarks, Professor Fukuyama quoted, only to dismiss, the film’s central teaching on the matter, an assertion made by the wise psychic mutant named Kuato: “You are what you do. A man is defined by his actions, not his memory.”

Germany's National Ethics Council Wants Incest Between Siblings To Be Legalized
Germany’s national ethics council has called for an end to the criminalisation of incest between siblings after examining the case of a man who had four children with his sister. Patrick Stuebing, who was adopted as an infant and met his sister in his 20s, has launched several appeals since being imprisoned for incest in 2008 and his lengthy legal battle has prompted widespread public debate. Sexual relations between siblings or between parents and their children are forbidden under section 173 of the German criminal code and offenders can face years in prison. But on Wednesday, the German Ethics Council recommended the section be repealed, arguing that the risk of disability in children is not enough to warrant the law and de-criminalising incest would not remove the huge social taboo around it. 

Embattled Evangelicals Say Blood On The Altar War Being Particularly Aimed At Them

These are anxious times for white evangelicals, according to two new surveys. At 20 percent of U.S. adults, they are statistically neck-and-neck with the “nones” — people who claim no religious brand. “Nones” now tally up to 19 percent in the 2014 American Values Survey, said Robert Jones, CEO of the Public Religion Research Institute, which released the survey Tuesday (Sept. 23.) Evangelicals, said Jones, are on “the losing side of the culture wars, such as gay marriage, and they see that their share (of society) is shrinking and aging, adding to their sense of being embattled.” “They can no longer say confidently they speak for all people of faith.” Perhaps for that reason, white evangelicals, more than any other religious group, worry that the government will interfere with their religious...


“Pop, Pop, Pop.” She Heard Her Brain In Action: Brain-Computer Interfaces Getting Very Sensitive
In November of last year, Jan Scheuermann did something she never thought she would do again: She fed herself a piece of chocolate. For the last decade Scheuermann, 54, has been a prisoner in her own body. She suffers from a mysterious degenerative disorder that attacks the nervous system, severing the connections between the brain and muscles. Now a quadriplegic, Scheuermann has no movement below her neck. She can’t move her limbs, let alone grasp, move, or hold anything. Until she’s hooked up to a brain-computer interface (BCI). BCI is a technology that can plug in to neuronal activity in Scheuermann’s brain, interpret it, and translate the signals into...
