Who would you trust more in a high-stress, high-stakes military excursion? A trained human soldier with the limitations of hunger, thirst, lack of sleep, and emotion—or a soulless, autonomous artificial intelligence system acting according to its programming? That’s a question militaries around the world—including the US military—are already facing as AI quickly advances into every industry. But the big question is this: who gets to do the programming?

So what exactly is autonomous AI when it comes to the military? Well, according to a Christian Post article, the Congressional Research Service states these are:

a special class of weapon systems that use sensor suites and computer algorithms to independently identify a target and employ an onboard weapon system to engage and destroy the target without manual human control of the system.

In other words, it’s a lethal system that gets to make its “own” decisions outside of human control, all based on its fallible human programming. Now, “the U.S. military does not have weapons completely controlled by artificial intelligence in its inventory,” but it’s likely such systems are coming soon—elsewhere if not here. So that gets us back to our question—who gets to do the programming?

No such thing as “Judeo Christian.” There is Judaism and there is Christianity. “Judeo Christian” is feel good inclusive gobbledygook invented during the Cold War.

The term “Judæo Christian” first appears in a letter by Alexander McCaul which is dated October 17, 1821. The term in this case referred to Jewish converts to Christianity. The term was similarly used by Joseph Wolff in 1829, in reference to a type of church that would observe some Jewish traditions in order to convert Jews. Mark Silk states in the early 19th century the term was “most widely used (in French as well as English) to refer to the early followers of Jesus who opposed” the wishes of Paul the Apostle and wanted “to restrict the message of Jesus to Jews and who insisted on maintaining Jewish law and ritual”.

Friedrich Nietzsche used the German term “Judenchristlich” (”Jewish-Christian”) to describe and emphasize what he believed were neglected aspects of the continuity which exists between the Jewish and Christian worldviews. The expression appears in The Antichrist, published in 1895 but written several years earlier; a fuller development of Nietzsche’s argument can be found in the prior work, On the Genealogy of Morality.

The concept of Judeo-Christian ethics or Judeo-Christian values in an ethical (rather than a theological or liturgical) sense was used by George Orwell in 1939, along with the phrase “the Judaeo-Christian scheme of morals”. Theologian Richard L. Rubenstein wrote that the “normative Judaeo-Christian interpretation of history” is to treat human suffering, such as a plague, as punishment for human guilt.

Historian K. Healan Gaston has stated that the term emerged as a descriptor of the United States in the 1930s, when the US sought to forge a unified cultural identity in an attempt to distinguish itself from fascism and communism in Europe. The term rose to greater prominence during the Cold War, especially when it was used to express opposition to communist atheism.

All I care about AI Weapons is they kill the enemy. Other than that it could be atheist for all I care. I hope we don’t expect inanimate objects to be religious. That’s getting pretty close to sacrilege. I doubt God would be impressed.
