Military Is Going To Build Robots That Have Morals

Are robots capable of moral or ethical reasoning? It’s no longer just a question for tenured philosophy professors or Hollywood directors. This week, it’s a question being put to the United Nations.

The Office of Naval Research will award $7.5 million in grant money over five years to university researchers from Tufts, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Brown, Yale and Georgetown to explore how to build a sense of right and wrong and moral consequence into autonomous robotic systems.

“Even though today’s unmanned systems are ‘dumb’ in comparison to a human counterpart, strides are being made quickly to incorporate more automation at a faster pace than we’ve seen before,” Paul Bello, director of the cognitive science program at the Office of Naval Research told Defense One. “For example, Google’s self-driving cars are legal and in-use in several states at this point. As researchers, we are playing ...

Moral Robots? How desperate are the workers of iniquity. This is the height of stupidity!

If you don't quantify the definition then this isn't as absurd as you may believe.

Regenerate define moral as a standard laid forth that originates in the mind of God. Simple definition but is this fair?

Now, how are they defining the word or idea moral? If you are not thinking about this in these terms then read the story above regarding pro life speach as torture. That repugnant foundation allows some,to "subvert the truth in inrighteousness" and argue that it is right to kill as to have no accountability so one can be sexual immoral.

Why is this shocking to us? Is the tower of babel a new idea?

"Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built. (10) For before these days there was no hire for man, nor any hire for beast;"

(there was nothing to do the job for man and beast, as machines and computers: or hire sufficient for the Lord's liberty and rest for all)

Joel 2:3

"A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them...(7) They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: (8) Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. (9) They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. (10) The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:"

the programming that the eugenicists put into robots can't be much different than the programming they've been putting into the human robots with flesh!

This is absurd. For any being to have a moral conscience, it must first of all be self-aware. Machines are not conscious or self-aware-- they are machines. They do not have a mind, consciousness, or the power of self-determination. Any machine, even the most sophisticated computer in the world, can only do what it has been programmed to do-- and it executes its tasks in a mindless manner, without self-awareness of its own existence. It's a machine, after all! How stupid can you get-- to impute "moral conscience" to a machine! Not surprising, though, for a military that thinks cross-dressing and transgenderism may be good for the morale, order and discipline of our troops.

Ultimately man wants to build man in his own image - a robot like this will be pure evil.

The Liberal churches today are trying to create their god in their own image hence they don't rely on the Bible too much.

The Vatican has created their version of the RC god who turns out to be the Roman church with idolatry as their form of worship.

It will naturally be the liberals satanic standard of morality that will be incorporated into the robots, which is no morality at all.

As long as the morals can't overide orders, they will anyway.
