I PRONOUNCE YOU MAN AND... ROBOT?


David Levy at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands recently completed his Ph.D. work on the subject of human-robot relationships. In this project he has concluded that marriage between humans and robots is something likely to happen within a few decades, and it is no surprise where he thinks this will first occur. From the wires;

"Levy predicts Massachusetts will be the first jurisdiction to legalize human-robot marriage.
"Massachusetts is more liberal than most other jurisdictions in the United States and has been at the forefront of same-sex marriage," Levy said. "There's also a lot of high-tech research there at places like MIT."
At first, sex with robots might be considered geeky, "but once you have a story like 'I had sex with a robot, and it was great!' appear someplace like Cosmo magazine, I'd expect many people to jump on the bandwagon," Levy said."

How much more debased could the God designed covenant of marriage become? It should not surprise us that this is on the horizon. Once the definition of marriage becomes fluid in a society, then all bets are off. Without the absolute of the Word of God guiding, people will inevitably desecrate their society, at times beyond repair. What God has designed to display to the world the glory of the relationship between Christ and His Church, man has perverted and now even mechanized.

This is nothing more than man trying to be God. Believing he can create robots in his own image. The sin is not new, it is as old as the Garden of Eden, and sadly people are still falling for it. The good news is that the answer is still the same and it always works, coming to true saving faith in Jesus Christ. He takes the heart of stone and turns it into a receiving heart of flesh that can worship and adore His name. Lets see man create that!
