Christians Show Worries About Musk’s Brain Chip Implant
Elon Musk, The man behind the brain Chip implant is pushing his new invention into the world of health care. This invention is receiving a lot of criticism from groups of people in the Christian faith. Why would they allow chip implants in their brains?
Technological experts such as Metaverse’s Mark Zuckerburg, Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of Tesla and Space X, and Klaus Schwab, the founder of the World Economic Forum are pushing AI programs into the health care sector. Believing by merging AI into the human brains —we will think faster and enjoy many benefits.
A poll conducted by John Zogby revealed that a greater percentage do not agree with this new scientific approach in the health care sector. Voters revealed their worries about such a dreadful move to alter humans with technology.
77% of those who participated in the survey worry “microchip implants will be used to usher in a never-before-seen level of totalitarian control.” Only 10% said it will improve lives, according to the pollster.
Elon Musk, the pioneer behind this brain chip is very optimistic about his invention. He, therefore, recommends people embrace it for good.
“We hope to have this in our first humans, which will be people that have severe spinal cord injuries like tetraplegics, quadriplegics, next year, pending FDA approval,” he told the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council summit.
Musk continued by saying:
“I think we have a chance with Neuralink to restore full-body functionality to someone who has a spinal cord injury. Neuralink’s working well in monkeys, and we’re actually doing just a lot of testing and just confirming that it’s very safe and reliable and the Neuralink device can be removed safely.”
Musk’s brain chip company called Neuralink has successfully transplanted AI microchips in the brain of a monkey. The same thing has been done to a pig.
The monkey successfully played the MindPong game showing a great improvement in its thinking. Now the next move is on humans as the company waits for FDA’s approval.
The company is now recruiting for a “clinical trial director” to run tests of the technology in humans, according to The Guardian.
The Christian world has already shown a great disinterest in this technology. Humans merging with robots is something faithful Christians are displeased with. The CBN News has also reported about how Christians have rejected the idea.
Biochemist Dr. Fazale Rana, vice president of research and apologetics at Reasons to Believe, told Biola University’s blog.
He is skeptical about the reality of its importance to people especially the children of God. He therefore said; we must think Biblically.
The Bible is the Holy Book of God directing the lives of Christians through godly knowledge. And here on earth, scientific knowledge is throwing a big challenge to nature.
A greater part of Christians who took part in the poll wants to remain natural. They love the way nature unfolds in their lives.
Science and Technology have been helpful but the brain chips are going a little too far, Dr. Fazale Rana to his speech.
These inventions spark the idea of the end times. Hence revelation chapter 13 talks about the mark of the beast which will be implanted on the forehead or the right hand.
Neurolink’s brain chip reminds Christians of Biblical prophecies and appears to be a prototype of the mark of the beast.
The Bible has stated categorically that we have the right to do everything but not everything is profitable in the sight of God.
It is like a Christian going into the practice of divination, sorcery, and seeking help from necromancers. Of course, no one will prevent you. But these acts are abominable in the face of God.
This means there should be a limit to how we interact with people and nature.
The world is watching how Elon Musk’s brain chip implant will affect people on this planet.
