Why it's too late to prevent the robot apocalypse

Prophecy Sign:  The exponential increase in knowledge



A passage in the book of Joel has been interpreted in two ways;  The Kingdom Now, (Dominionism), group believe that a mighty army of Christians will take back the world and make it utopia ready in order for Jesus Christ to return to Earth, (good luck with that).  The second much more plausible belief is taken by those Christians that believe that things will get much worse in this world before it gets better, which is exactly what Jesus warned of when he said it would be a time of unequaled horrors, (Matthew 24:21).  
Thus the army of Joel is not a group of take back the planet Christians but a demonic led horde intent on destroying the globe.  This horde has been described as everything from a demonic army, to a "Walking Dead" Zombie apocalypse to a robot army of killing machines.  Given the evidence contained in the following articles and just what is described in the book of Joel, it makes the third scenario of a robot army seem quite plausible.

At the sight of them, nations are in anguish; every face turns pale.  They charge like warriors; they scale walls like soldiers. They all march in line, not swerving from their course. They do not jostle each other; each marches straight ahead. They plunge through defenses without breaking ranks. Joel 2:6-8 NIV

Why it's too late to prevent the robot apocalypse
Robots are going to murder you unless we stop them. Or at least, that's the message from hundreds of experts in artificial intelligence who recently banded together to sign a very scary-sounding letter. Revealed late last month at the big International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Buenos Aires, the note — bearing the signatures of Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, and plenty of heavies from Apple and Google — explained that autonomous battle robots must literally be stopped before they kill us all. The fear goes something like this: These automated killing machines might fall into the wrong hands, triggering a worldwide arms race that will make deathbots as ubiquitous tomorrow as machine guns are today.

Rise of the brain-controlled robot ARMIES
Forget joysticks and exoskeletons, the future of warfare could see robot armies controlled using just a commander's mind. China has been training students at a military academy to use headsets that detect and interpret the brain activity of the wearer, allowing them to control the machines. At a demonstration at the People's Liberation Army Information Engineering University in Zhengzhou, students used the device to send robots trundling in different directions.  They were also able to turn the robot's heads and get them to pick up objects. The technology uses a brain computer interface known as a electroencephalograph, which uses electrodes embedded in a cap to detect tiny changes in the electrical activity of the brain.  By training a computer to recognise particular patterns that accompany commands, such as turn left or turn right, this can be then transmitted to control the robot. The technology is being developed at the military academy's laboratory for brain-machine coordination.

Will artificial intelligence be religious? Researchers say robots could someday be converted to a faith
Artificial intelligence could be a reality within years, rather than decades, scientists have said. Elon Musk recently warned AI has the potential to be as dangerous to mankind as nuclear weapons. But is there hope for artificial intelligence in the form of religion? And could faith allow AI to do more good than harm?
