      Yeah, hypocrisy like that is what got me out of religion - and how/what I believe in private is my own business.

      I actually did read that book, several times, every word, and just looking for what it says, not using it, as CS Lewis said "to gain power over mankind using religion as a tool" as seems so common in organized religion of all kinds. Or looking for a way to justify my preconceptions as many do, by picking and choosing out of context. Even a pastor with the best of intentions falls prey to that when prescribing what his flock should be concentrating on, even though he forgets he doesn't have god's phone number.

      "Created in the image of the creator" comes to mind in this instance, along with lots of others those guys who believe sex might lead to dancing didn't read.

        Re: Southern Baptists

        Some of my ancestors were southern Baptists. They were Baptists, and they lived in Sussex. I'm told the exact name of their sect was Strict Baptists. A relative suggested that the Strict was not a reflection of their Biblical Interpretation. For example, they could still eat Prawn Chop Suey, of course so long as the cabbage was overcooked. Rather, the stricture was that only church members could participate in the Sacrament of Communion. It was not clear to me whether "member" referred to the congregation, or the sect as a whole. No idea how they enforced the stricture. Perhaps the method they used became the model for airline flight check-ins. "I'm with Strict BA, please."

        I know this isn't the right place, but are / were Strict Baptists similar to Southern Baptists? By asking here, I'm cutting out the middlemen, like it says in the Book.

        Gods get created over and over. The primordial Greek gods got demonised when they were replaced by the titans and the titans got demonised when they were replaced by the Olympians. The Greek Olympians were a bit too Greek for the Romans so they got recreated with a stronger Roman flavour. The god of Judaism was a bit Jewish for the Christians so they created an updated version closer to their own values.

Jews (and Christians after them) believe that there are many functions that all strive toward the only God (it's called in Physics String Theory).

          Ancient Greeks believed that there are no functions at all, as well as the striving; and the limits (gods and people-half-gods) exist directly in our world.

    AI-parsing and n-gram parsing

    Before AI-parsing only n-gram parsing existed:

    In the fields of computational linguistics and probability, an n-gram is a contiguous sequence of n items from a given sample of text or speech. In the sentence

    - Alice comes, jests and sings.

    1. n-gram parsing gets only one phrase:

    - Alice comes jests sings.

    2. AI-parsing gets in the same sentence three weighted phrases:

    Alice comes 0.(3)

    Alice jests 0.(3)

    Alice sings 0.(3)

    That's the foundation of AI, it operates with the restored and weighted phrases, while n-gram doesn't.

    1. Voyna i Mor Silver badge

      Re: AI-parsing and n-gram parsing

      And how, in your second example, does it deal with the ambiguity in "Alice comes" which has different meaning according to what it is contiguous with?

      Your version of AI would probably hit a lane divider.

      1. I.Geller Bronze badge

        Re: AI-parsing and n-gram parsing

        Exactly!

        "Alice comes" is a plurality, phrase.

        "Alice"is a singularity, word.

        The ambiguity appears only if you use the plurality. As long as you employ the singularity there is no an ambiguity, because it means absolutely everything and nothing at the same time: the word "Alice" without the plurality is senseless, doesn't exist.

        AI works with sets of phrases. Google, using my 6.199.067 does work with sets of phrases (PA Advisors v Google).

        "a lane divider"... This is Internal Relations theory of Analytic Philosophy, I created it opposing External of Moore-Russell-Wittgenstein.

          Earlier there was a realization that natural processes could be emulated with a simple processor and complex data; rather than a complex processor and simple data.

            1. There are three phrases in "Alice comes, jests, sings." - a plurality.

            2. There is only one word in "Alice" - a singularity.

            3. Fuzzy logic as well as Markov chains/models are not for differentialable functions, while AI is that differentialable function.

            a) Machine learning is the addition of structured texts, which means an AI (as a differentialable function) gets its constant increment.

            b) AI is a conglomerate of texts;

            - where texts are paragraphs (contexts);

            - each paragraph is an integral;

            - and dictionary definitions (subtexts) form its constant.

            c) Right, "natural processes could be emulated with a simple processor and complex data" - AI could exist the first moment the first computer was turned on. It didn't exist only because of Bertrand Russell and his External theory. Instead SQL came.

      My Differential Linguistics

      My Differential Linguistics (published at NIST TREC) came from the above mentioned St.Paul and Hegel's differential analyses' "becoming". There are two sentences:

      - Alice.

      - Alice comes, jests and sings.

      The second is a differential function with its limit in the first: "Alice" by itself is the Knowledge, its weight = 1, this sentence means absolutely everything and nothing at the same time. In other words a set of phrases "becomes" a singular one word.

      AI operates with sets of phrases, searching for an answer with its weight = 1.

      1. I.Geller Bronze badge

        Re: My Differential Linguistics

        As you for sure all very well know Bertrand Russell, one of the founders of External Relations theory, wrote "Why I'm not a Christian." His main thesis is that Knowledge exists and he personally possessed it: he based his speculations on Geometry and Arithmetic, which know. For example, Pythagorean Theorem knows.

        AI came from Internal Relations theory of Analytical Philosophy, which is based on the proposition that there are only opinions, which are differential functions and strive toward their only limit in Knowledge. Thus, the roots of AI in the Bible, in John and St. Paul's Linguistic.

        1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

        11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

        12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

        Hegel introduced this notion as his "becoming", and Russell-Moore-Wittgenstein established External Relations theory of Analytic Philosophy in the attempt to get rid of this Biblical and Hegel's "becoming". (Which came from Differential Analyses.)

        Now came I and established Internal theory, fight Russell and Co. AI is my argument, the proof of Internal: it's a function, has no answers - it arrives to them, searches and fins them conversing.

        Sorry for the mistakes - Google translate does them, not I.

    FYI

    The reason why the Southern Baptists exist is that they split away from the original Baptists over slavery. They were for it. They were for segregation after the Confederacy lost their bunfight. Certain Southern Baptists felt so strongly on the matter that they did things like, oh, blow up churches. Including Baptist churches, just not white Southern Baptist churches. Including black Baptist churches with little girls inside, killing four.

    This leads me to wonder two things:

    1 why is the Southern Baptist Convention considered to be Christian in any way, shape or form?

    2 why do some black churches associate themselves with the name 'Baptist'?

Helping those in need was an absolute requirement under both the Hebrew laws and the things expected of the early Christians. Many of the festivals Israel observed (perhaps the majority) had a significant component relating to feeding the poor.

        As to hating... If you act with hate towards anyone, you have no part in Christ. Try again tomorrow, when you've put your hate aside. If you refuse to forgive anyone, you have no reason to expect the Saviour to forgive you (there is a difference between refusing to forgive and wishing to forgive but having a hard time doing so).

        Too often I have encountered people who are 'opposed' to Jesus who model his teachings very well, while also finding people who claim to follow Jesus closely yet fail to model Him in even the smallest ways.

    White Boys can't shoot basketball?

    What more of the vidieo https://www.dumpert.nl/mediabase/7663121/813762f0/niet_lang_genoeg_om_te_basketballen.html

    Why is the only back robot the one who can make the shot?

    "Unfortunately, the ERLC doesn’t believe in any other kind of sex besides that between a husband and wife."

    Why "unfortunately"? That's been the preferred stance of most cultures for most of history.

    The robotic hoops player is black and tall.

    The security and medical bots are white.

    The Basketball Robot could be done with wires and springs

    That basketball - shooting robot is not impressive at all, since it starts in exactly one position. Given some wires and springs, and maybe a pneumatic piston or two, a totally mechanical basketball-shooting robot could be assembled. What the video shows looks like it could be replaced with a pitching machine.

    Now, if the robot actually walked, stopped, evaluated the distance, and then took the shot ... that would be something. Until I see that ... meh.

    On the AI

    AI in medicine is acceptable if it enhances healthcare, but using it as a means to improve or change the actual body isn’t. So, no bionic humans or anything like that.

    Well... No. Sorry guys, you tried hard but on this one.. One of my closest friends is minus a limb due to injury. It'd make his life much better if he could have a truly functional prosthetic. Doesn't have to be beyond normal human strength (although it'd be nice), just reasonably functional. When I was a kid we had a huge campaign around our district because a kid a couple of years older than me (think he was around 12 at the time) won the NZ BMX championships and was going to the world champs in the US. Great kid, world ahead of him. I still remember the headlines from the papers about a week before he was due to leave - his spine was broken in a car accident. When I met him at high school a couple of years later he was wheelchair bound and would be for the rest of his life. Something that would give mobility back to someone like him - if not direct healing then at least allow bionics.

    Jury is out on the sex-bot for me. I think it could be problematic, but would at least give some people an outlet where no-one gets hurt (at least until someone starts demanding equality for rootbots).

    As to "moral agency", if a system is sufficiently functional to qualify then I have no doubts it should. If I can program a robot to have a true sense of feeling/emotions, then it should be given the equavilent moral agency. If it has the emotional range of a cat, it should be given that level. If it has the range of a toddler, or a full grown (reasonably) normal adult human, then it should be given the appropriate level of "moral agency". I don't know at which point a machine could develop a soul, but I have no doubt that it would be possible if we can get the hardware and software right (so... Not in my great-grandkid's great-great-grandkids lifetime)

    Yes yes I know 'robot" may not be exactly the most correct term but I'm about to spend my evening fixing a windows computer, so I really don't care about much atm :(

    They are kicking me out of the forum. I created AI and I'm the one who is uncovering its technology for everybody. I have no friends, only enemies...

    They want my intellectual property for free, they think my patents are useless and my years of work are nothing. They're scared that I'm doing everything in public, and they don't understand what I'm going to do to them very soon.

    Look at Eric Schmidt, Sergey Brin and Larry page? Google? Do you see what awaits you?

      Pretty sure you don't get kicked for a large number of downvotes.

      if that was the case religious fags like myself would've been long gone. I've gathered over a thousand downvotes.

      As to the rest of your post... Are your sure your meds are on straight? Something looks a little wonky to me....

        Religion that you knew - ended. Now it is the Science. And what used to be science is now barbaric.

        All these millennia you practiced the Science, you just did not have a foothold to prove, with scientific arguments in your hands, the depravity of polytheism and the correctness of Biblical monotheism. Now you can.

        AI, Google and IBM Watson prove Bible and the existence of God.

        But you understand this is my speculation? And I'm for sure mistaken?
