Quest 4 Truth with Rob Skiba and Douglas Hamp 02

This week, Doug Hamp and Rob Skiba go back to the beginning and discuss the rise and fall of the Nephilim. They then debate about whether or not there was a second incursion of angels mating with women. Finally, they conclude with a brief description of the Genesis 14 War, revealing what may perhaps be the greatest archaeological find of all time… that hasn’t been found yet. (Sorry, Rob’s Internet connection was not that good for this one).

Quest 4 Truth with Rob Skiba and Douglas Hamp 01 The Nephilim

Doug Hamp and Rob Skiba kick off their new show Quest 4 Truth! Their goal is to explore various topics in the Bible and discuss them. Sometimes they will agree. Sometimes they will not. In the latter case, the hope is that open and honest dialogue will lead to “iron sharpening iron” and greater revelation from Scripture will be the result.

In this first episode, they discuss a subject they are both passionate about: the Nephilim and the truth concerning giants in both the Scriptures as well as in history.

The Image of the Beast Rising?

The day is coming quickly when humans will be able to completely replace the human body and live forever. As predicted in Corrupting the Image, it is just a matter of time until the limitations of the human are no longer an Human immortality or image of the beast?issue and technology will overcome them. While it sounds good, it is in fact a counterfeit to the real body that God intends to give us, freely – made in his own image, no less!

 

Some of the smartest people in the world are gathering in New York to try to figure out how to build lifelike copies of humans … to be eventually uploaded with the contents of a real human brain.

It’s the brainchild of a Russian multimillionaire, Dmitry Itskov. … And he says he’s perfectly serious, and that it could be accomplished by 2035.

Crazy? The New York Times gave Itskov a front-page profile on its Sunday Business page a week and a half ago.

Imagine this … a digital copy of your brain in a different life form that could live for hundreds of years and be replaced.

There are several stages to his proposal, including an early stage (Avatar A) where lifelike avatars (androids) are created, but without an actual brain in them. Instead you would be able to mentally “occupy” the avatar and would have the same sensations.

If you have ever seen the movie “Surrogates” with Bruce Willis, a 2009 film, this is the first stage. In that movie, Willis remotely moves around an android that is an optimized version of himself. He is in a darkened room and has a live telepresence of that avatar, including all senses.

Dmitry says that we could have the first phase—that will enable people to operate a nonbiological body—in the next seven years. And he believes that the concept can be proved to be viable in the next three years. He is talking about an artificial body with sensations—the sensation that you would be walking in the body.

The next phase (Avatar B) is brain transplantation. Instead of your dying, neurosurgeons isolate the brain and some of the spinal chord, put it in a life support system, and that is inserted into the android developed in Avatar A. The timetable:
2020-25.

In the next phase (Avatar C), you make the brain non-biological by uploading it into a computer. The timetable: 2030-35.

Sounds crazy? One of the speakers, Theodore Berger, will show how he has already replaced the hippocampus of a rat with a computer chip. Read more here
