Man, Animal, and Machine

One of the results of modern godless philosophy is to see man as nothing more than an animal or a machine. This philosophy suggests another application of a scripture which describes the power of the human reasoning: "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7). The more that modern man thinks of himself as nothing more than animal or machine, the more it will be literally true. Animal organs are being used in humans. Many humans have machine parts as well. The next step is to combine the brain with computer chips. According to a report just out: "For the first time, scientists at the Max-Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried near Munich coupled living brain tissue to a chip equivalent to the chips that run computers." This was accomplished in a rat's brain, but human brains are sure to follow. The scientists see this as "a great step forward towards neurochip prosthetics and neurocomputation." Translated, that means computer chips to keep up with your memory, to do your calculations, and eventually to correct your faulty thinking. We may wonder whose faulty thinnking they will want to correct. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
