(OT) the age we live in

I remember as a teen thinking I would never live long enough to be old now I live in an age where robots are asking people to verify that they are in fact human.

We will continue to make robots more human-like by all means. Some are getting pretty close. Do you think they would someday out-smart us? Well, two can play that game..

We always have something up our sleeves.
We have talent shows around the globe with people mimicking robots with outstanding results.

Watch the 1962 movie "Creation of the Humanoids". Another good one is the 1970 movie "Colossus: The Forbin Project". They're dated with the technology of the times, but the concepts fit a lot of what's going on today.

The human species is one built for endurance.

IMO, everything with a cord or battery has failed the test of time.

Until, machines learn to maintain and evolve themselves, I’ll continue to hedge my bet on the long game.

I do miss the days when you had to plan ahead with your friends and hold yourself accountable to a meet-up time and place. Now with cell phones, it seems everything is an audible and last minute… I expected my pace of life to have slowed down somewhat at my current age, but it feels like it’s moving faster than ever.

I know why you're here, Neo. I know what you've been doing... why you hardly sleep, why you live alone, and why night after night, you sit by your computer. You're looking for him. I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when he found me, he told me I wasn't really looking for him. I was looking for an answer. It's the question that drives us, Neo. It's the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.

Main problem today is that there are massive amounts of bad actors with "bot" programs that thrive on cybernetic mischief/crime. Even a bad scammer can make a couple thousand a month phishing for gullible or unwitting victims.

Virus injections, trojans, worms, rootkits, bad cookies, redirects, browser hijacks, and a long series of etceteras are quite common in the wild.

Sounds like robots, air conditioners and heavy metal groups aren't going to be of much consolation in the near future. No date given, but I'm pretty sure it will be within the lifetime of most members here. Rather amazing to contemplate. This IS the age we live in!

We're living with artificial intelligence every day. The people programming the Robo-calls don't have real intelligence. As of a month or two ago, most of the calls I get are now in Spanish, and I don't speak Spanish. Then there are the calls where they just hang up without saying anything.

I get calls about my student loan twice a day.

I never had a student loan. My main problem is that I can not prove I never had one, and that I don't owe anything on a student loan because I never had one.

I started surveying 45 years ago, when electronic distance meters (EDM) were just getting affordable and small enough to pack around. In those days, a field survey crew was often three people. sometimes more (sometimes just two, but rare). There was a pecking order and built-in mentoring. In the mid-90's, GPS became affordable and changed the surveying world (the world in general for position, navigation, and timing applications). Around the same time robotic total stations (modern day transit with built-in EDM) were being developed where the instrument could track the "rod" and be operated remotely from a data collection device on the rod end using a radio or bluetooth connection.

Today, many private sector "survey crews" are a single person running a robotic total station or a GPS receiver connected to real-time GPS reference network via the internet. It has almost killed the mentoring opportunities from when I started and seriously imperiled the continuance of the profession as a whole.

GNSS (global navigation satellite system - GPS plus other constellations) positioning is unbelievably efficient, accurate, and precise (with proper procedures and data processing), but it has come with costs. Once a robot is running the rod or carrying the GNSS receiver, we will be relegated to using the collected data to make property boundary determinations. Heck, we do very little construction staking anymore, once a bread and butter money maker. Why? Because all of the heavy equipment is guided by GPS/total stations and the operator has a computer in the cab showing the design surface model he is grading to. He is basically playing a video game instead of reading survey stakes.

Adapt or die, I suppose. Fortunately I have another option.....retire.

I had an exchange with a different Christian last week. I had a problem and messaged this man and he is well aware of my faults but instead of telling me I needed to straighten up my act he addressed and elaborated on the problem from his point of expertise in such a loving and caring way that it literally brought me to tears. If Jesus is like that man then I want to be like Jesus.

I recently ran a dozer with the GPS on it. I was surprised at how accurate it was and how good it made my skills look! No more grade checkers with those.

Fear not...there will be wars and rumors of wars...these things must come to pass before the terrible and awful day...

Be as ready as you want to be, and life will reveal itself as it should. You won't be surprised.

I would say eschatology is my favorite Biblical subject. For some reason I have always thought the end of the world would be in my lifetime but I have come to realize that every generation has thought that since the resurrection of Jesus. I read the "Left Behind" series, I found the entire series at a garage sale for 50 cents each book and bought every one of them. Those stories are total hogwash, I mean complete bull malarkey, but they are very entertaining. If you enjoy eschatology I recommend J Dwight Pentecost's "Things to Come"

I consider " end of the world" warnings as something to not be taken seriously. Every other year someone comes with a new one, just to be superseded by the next guy.

People just want attention, and will escalate their claims to get the result they are looking for.

Five minutes of fame is just that: five minutes.

In May 14th 1948, Israel became a sovereign nation thus the fig tree come back to life and started shooting forth. The fig tree (Israel) that seemed dead sprung back to life, putting forth tender branches and leaves.


And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees. When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
‘Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away’


The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they be eighty years, yet is their labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.


Do the math. When in past history has this been possible? ...... Until NOW! What you are seeing now is EXACTLY the beginnings of the end of man's rule on earth.

Just as it is written:

This is exactly right biblically- the math is correct, and everything is falling into place just as fortold. Scoffers can scoff- their choice, but everything said in his post is the same thing I have seen.

I happen to have personal insight from God on the return of Jesus; it will be in my lifetime. I have talked to doctors, pastors, friends, therapists, about it and I have simply quit going into detail on it; nobody, and I mean nobody, believes me. I will never again share my experience with anyone. I am 54 years old and I vape regularly, I believe in 20 years or so vaping will be revealed as one of the worst things you can do to your lungs. Many of the member here are older than I am, a lot are retired. and I would say most of the members here will not live to see the return of Christ.

Fear mongering is one of the best and most efficient ways to control people, especially in religious and political settings. Convince people that some kind of boogie man or situation is going to get them, and they will obey and follow. The below is straight from the horse's mouth.

In an interview with Gilbert in Göring's jail cell during the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials (18 April 1946)

Göring: Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.

Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.

Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
