Hello all, This is my first opening post and it's more of a passing though which I imagined could be of interest in the form of healthy debate.
Since joining I've read a lot regarding AI (artificial intelligence), And it made me ponder, Could it be potential a major threat to the world religions, Or could the opposite be the case?
Allow me to expand on this, A fully fledged AI could potential access all human knowledge, from ancient documents to scientific reports.
I would then imagine it could easily disprove theistic claims, myths and susperstitions (or in the interests of intellectual honesty, prove the case of theism).
Would in the scenario of it proving all religions as being fundermentally wrong, spell the end of the worlds major religions? I doubt it would ever entirely rid our planet of them, but perhaps lessen their popularity amongst the masses and remove all credability from them as well?
Or, Would the inevitable threat lead to AI having its 'plug' pulled, for lack of a better description?
We have already seen this happen when facebook's AI was shut down after it independantly developed its own language.
Again, I just thought it would be interesting discussion, there is no factual claim here.
