Deus Ex Machina Sapiens Book Description:

Watson's win on Jeopardy came as no surprise to those who had read Deus ex Machina sapiens. It was written largely during the 1990s, around the time that another IBM supercomputer--Deep Blue--was trouncing world chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov. The book has since been updated on a few points of detail but its primary message remains intact: the Machine is rapidly evolving as Man's rival if not replacement for the job of Steward of the Earth. Building upon the work of some of the world's greatest scientists, philosophers, and religious thinkers, and drawing particularly from developments in the computing and cognitive sciences--particularly, the field of artificial intelligence, or AI--the book reveals the evolutionary emergence of a machine that is not just intelligent but also self-conscious, emotional, and free-willed. In the 1980s and '90s you used to hear grandiose claims about AI. Machines would soon surpass humans in intelligence, it was claimed by some. The Japanese government spent a billion dollars on one project to make it happen. Well, it didn't happen, but that didn't stop the development of intelligence in machines. AI research simply went underground, and has ever since been quietly incorporated into the "ordinary" programs we use every day, without fanfare, without hype. There is still no machine that rivals Homo sapiens in overall intelligence, but today there are machines that far exceed human intellectual capacity in specific domains, from games to engineering to art, and the number of domains is growing exponentially big and exponentially fast. The disappearance of AI from front stage was good insofar as it allowed machines to develop in the right way; that is, through an evolutionary process, which is the only way for something of such complexity to develop. But it was bad insofar as we lost sight of the development of the intelligent machine. Deus brings Machina sapiens back to front stage, where it belongs. After describing the evolutionary development of intelligence in machines it goes on to describe the emotional, intellectual, and ethical attributes of what is no less than an emergent new life form. It asks the Big Question that can only be asked if you accept the very possibility of the new life form: Will it be serpent or savior? The question is answered in the book's title, which is intended to mean "God Emerging From the Intelligent Machine." The author confesses to having never studied Latin and to have concocted the title from two known Latin phrases: "Deus ex Machina" and "Homo sapiens." The concoction could be grammatically incorrect. The author would be pleased to be corrected.

Religion as Art Form Book Description:

Description: If you find books such as Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion compelling but your faith heritage is also important to you, this book shows how you can affirm both. Taking a cue from Marcus Borg's contention that ""scriptural literalism"" is for many people a major impediment to authentic spirituality, Carl Jech describes how all religion can and should be much more explicit about its symbolic, metaphorical, and artistic nature. With a particular focus on mortality and the relationship of humans to eternity, the book affirms a postmodern understanding of ""God"" as ultimate eternal Mystery and of spirituality as an artistic, (w)holistic, visionary, and creative process of becoming at home in the universe as it really is with all its joys and sorrows. Religion as Art Form is a must-read for those who think of themselves as spiritual but not religious. Endorsements: ""If you're looking for a way to make sense of your life and your world, but you don't get much (or any) satisfaction from slick, glib, outdated, unworkable, arrogant, or cocksure religious 'answers, ' this is your book. If you're looking for trustworthy answers that don't demean, insult, or ridicule, this book is a good place to start. . . . By the time you finish this book, you'll find there are no supernatural, sacred cows left in the corral. What you will find is a new way of thinking about language and life."" --Michael Luther Sherer, editor emeritus of the MetroLutheran ""Critical issues central to the purpose of religion are woven in an intricate tapestry that utilizes every conceivable strand of expressive art available to elucidate the topics addressed. The style of writing itself is reflective of an art form, as ideas flood each page in a stream of consciousness, expressive of the dynamic, progressive posture that permeates each page. Readers seeking an alternative approach for expressing and experiencing their spirituality will find this book scintillating and stimulating."" --Robert H. Albers, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Pastoral Theology, United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities ""Separating God from the sterile options between theism and atheism and seeing God as a verb to be lived, not a noun to be believed, are the themes of this book. Religion as Art Form is both groundbreaking and riveting."" --John Shelby Spong, author of The Fourth Gospel About the Contributor(s): Carl L. Jech (ThM, Harvard) is Instructor in Humanities at DeAnza College in Silicon Valley. He has served as parish pastor and college chaplain in Michigan, Wisconsin, and California, and has taught at other colleges in the San Francisco Bay Area.
