Are These Us?: A Semiotic View of Mixed Iron-Clay Feet from Daniel 2 in the Age of Artificial Intelligent Technology (Paperback)
This research offers a semiotic view of Daniel's prophetic 'mixed iron and clay feet' interpretation from Nebuchadnezzar's dream. This prophecy may be used to predict a potentially mixed Human-AI culture and its impacts on Christian faith in the age of AI and cyborgs. Knowledge of this topic will prepare the church better to navigate its future. This dissertation suggests how effective Christian faith can be communicated to a blended Human-AI culture with openness, with loving mission, and maintaining the belief that God-the Alpha and the Omega-is always in control no matter how advanced our technology gets. This book will be an open invitation for people to continue discussion into this important area of research and will invite people within the Church today to seek answers for themselves not through human political power, nor through scientific and technological supper intelligence, but through the only Person-the Son of Man and the Son of God-"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever" (Heb. 13:8 NRSV).
