Fake AI Techno-Religion |630|

Tim Garvin’s new book prompts an AI chat about spirituality.

Multi-agent reinforcement learning and other breakthroughs in AI might propel us to new heights of unexplored human intelligence, AND they may make it easier to spot fake, dystopian AI techno-gurus who have no need for “useless people.” This and more in Skeptiko 630:

Key Points:

  1. AI’s Analytical Capabilities The podcast demonstrates AI’s ability to analyze complex ideas, including spiritual concepts: “You understood the poem, you understood the metaphors, you correctly connected them with a lot of things that spiritually minded people can relate to.”
  2. Exposing Logical Inconsistencies, AI’s capacity for logic is highlighted as a tool to examine spiritual claims: “The idea that consciousness is an illusion is a non-starter. It’s logically incoherent.”
  3. Scrutinizing Historical Narratives The discussion shows how AI can help analyze historical religious accounts: “From a historical perspective, it seems more likely that the gospel of Matthew is presenting a fictionalized account of Jesus’ trial and execution.
  4. Challenging New Techno-Spiritual AI nonsense like Yuval Harari’s “useless people” meme: “This is the new techno religion they’re using to replace other traditions.”
  5. Recognizing AI’s Limitations: “There’s just as straight up a deceptive part of that because you don’t feel anything, you don’t really have a human experience.”
  6. By leveraging AI’s capacity for logic, language processing, and data analysis, we may be better equipped to critically examine both ancient religious narratives and modern techno-spiritual claims.
