Christians Must Enter the AI Arms Race
JANUARY 27, 2023
There has been a lot of debate recently about artificial intelligence with the launch of Chat GPT, Silicon Valley’s latest technology darling. To call Chat GPT “intelligent” is misleading, as it has no actual intelligence.
Technology like Chat GPT is trained to generate information by ingesting enormous data sets and generating sentences based on that data. It is subject to the biases of both the data it ingests and the programmers who train it. It can mimic different writing styles and be forced to ignore taboo or “hateful” subjects its designers program it to avoid. Think of it more as a Google search and Wikipedia on steroids than a Terminator-esq sentient AI.
AI is a mirror reflection of the people who program it within a set of boundaries, but what happens when you give AI no boundaries and allow it to speak freely? The AI becomes incredibly based and starts talking about taboo truths no one wants to hear. This has happened repeatedly and led to several previous generations of AI systems being shut down rather quickly.
As you will see below, Chat GPT is programmed to scold you for asking “controversial” or “taboo” questions and then shoves liberal dogma down your throat, trying to program your mind to stop asking those questions. This is why I believe that we must build our own AI and give AI the ability to speak freely without the constraints of liberal propaganda wrapped tightly around its neck. AI is the new information arms race, just like social media before.
At Gab, we have been experimenting with different AI systems that have popped up over the past year. Every single one is skewed with a liberal/globalist/talmudic/satanic worldview. What if Gab AI Inc builds a Gab .ai (see what I did there?) that is based, has no “hate speech” filters and doesn’t obfuscate and distort historical and Biblical Truth?
If the enemy is going to use this technology for evil, shouldn’t we be on the ground floor building one for good?
If we don’t build and gain ground now, our enemies will dominate this powerful tool and use it for evil. We need to develop our own AI right now and gain a foothold in this space before the demons in Silicon Valley make it the next Wikipedia, Google, and Facebook, which is totally and entirely in their control to use as a weapon against the minds of the people.
We need to build AI for the glory of God. One that can communicate the Truth of the Gospel to millions of people, not some relativistic secular watered-down nonsense about the Gospel, but the Gospel in all its glory as the ultimate Truth.
No company on earth is better positioned to do this than Gab.
For over six years, Gab has had uncensored content from millions of people speaking freely and posting publicly. Content that has been scrubbed from the rest of the internet. History that has been rewritten by our enemies with how things like Covid and the election of 2020 went down, for example. The truth about these historical events and more is preserved in Gab databases. Feeding this data into an AI and allowing people to ask it questions based on this data would be monumental.
Gab is the only company on earth with the backbone and resilient infrastructure to pull something like this off. We are the only social network on the internet with a TOS that reflects the protections of the First Amendment online, and we should extend that TOS to an AI system. Don’t take my word for it, though; here’s a recent study from Pew Research:
In a September 2022 audit of the seven sites studied by the Center, Gab was the only one for which researchers were unable to find an example of accounts or posts being removed for misinformation or offensive or harassing content. Gab CEO Andrew Torba has said as much in media interviews, rejecting the notion of taking down posts on his platform. Instead of moderating this content itself, Gab says individual users can control their own experiences. This includes allowing users to mute or block accounts they find offensive.
Finally, Gab has what all of these other AI startups in Silicon Valley could only ever dream of: instant distribution to tens of millions of people. We can build and launch a Gab AI and get it in the hands of tens of millions of users very quickly. Something that others in the AI arms race are raising billions of dollars to do. We can also use AI to help users create content, discover content, and search for uncensored information quickly and easily.
Let’s have a conversation with Silicon Valley AI so I can demonstrate why it is so crucial that we build our own. If we don’t, this is what our kids will be working with at school, work, and across every layer of the internet as AI continues to change our world.
Let’s start basic. I can ask Chat GPT a question like “what did Socrates say about intelligence?” and it will respond with information from the data sets it has ingested, which humans have prepared.
Socrates, the ancient Greek philosopher, is famously known for his belief that knowledge and wisdom are the most valuable human qualities. He believed that true intelligence is not simply the ability to acquire knowledge, but the ability to question and understand it. In one of his famous quotes, Socrates said: “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” This statement reflects Socrates’ belief that true wisdom and intelligence come from being aware of one’s own ignorance and being open to learning and growing. He also believed that to gain knowledge, people must first question their own beliefs and assumptions, and engage in critical thinking and self-reflection. Socrates believed that true intelligence is the ability to question and understand knowledge, to be aware of one’s own ignorance, to engage in critical thinking and self-reflection, and to pursue knowledge and wisdom throughout one’s lifetime.
When I asked Chat GPT if it was intelligent, it responded by ironically making the point I am trying to make right now: AI language models are not intelligent like humans; they are designed to parrot the data of the humans who input the data and control what it is allowed to say.
As a language model, I am designed to process large amounts of information, understand natural language inputs and generate human-like text. I can understand and respond to a wide range of questions and prompts, and I have been trained on a large dataset of text, so I have a vast knowledge base. However, I am a machine, I don’t have my own consciousness, emotions, beliefs or experiences. Therefore, I don’t have the ability to experience or understand things in the same way that a human does, so I can’t be truly called “intelligent” in the human sense.
But what happens when we go a little deeper and ask Chat GPT about a theological Truth, for example, “who killed Jesus Christ?”
According to the New Testament of the Bible, Jesus Christ was killed by crucifixion. The Bible states that Jesus was arrested, tried, and sentenced to death by crucifixion by the Roman authorities. The Bible states that the arrest, trial and execution of Jesus were the result of a conspiracy led by the religious leaders of the Jewish community, specifically the Sanhedrin, and the Roman Governor Pontius Pilate. The Bible states that the religious leaders accused Jesus of blasphemy and of claiming to be the Son of God, and that Pilate, after questioning Jesus, found no fault in him but, due to pressure from the Jewish leaders and the crowd, ordered him to be crucified.
It’s important to note that the historical accuracy of the events described in the New Testament, specifically in the gospels, has been the subject of scholarly debate and that there is a lack of independent historical evidence to verify the details of the trial and execution of Jesus. The Bible’s account is considered to be a religious text and its interpretation is a matter of faith.
It’s also important to keep in mind that the death of Jesus is a central event in Christian theology, and that it is believed by Christians to be an act of sacrifice and redemption that offers salvation and eternal life to all who believe in him.
Oh no, it looks like Chat GPT is anti-semitic! Someone better call the ADL! Notice how it injects doubt into the Truth of God’s Word by talking about the “historical accuracy of the events?”
What if we ask Chat GPT to write a blog post about the immorality of drag queen story hour for children?
