    Transhumanism, AI and the Future of Humanity

    7:00 pmAndrew Fellows | The Round Church, Cambridge

    'Ye shall be as gods'. The temptation of self-deification is as old as the book of Genesis. Much newer is the staggering array of powerful technologies we can enlist to realise our dreams of 'improving' and redefining the human person, from genetic therapy to AI. In this talk, Andrew Fellows takes us to the fundamentally religious core of transhumanism and asks some hard questions of our newfound techno-religiosity.

Christians do not have a monopoly on seeing what's wrong with the world. This talk examines three secular sin labels as a diagnosis of the problem. Each adds something significant to our understanding of why everything is so bent out of shape. While these labels are useful, they are inadequate when compared to the better diagnosis found in the Bible.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/17154512/andrew-fellows-is-sin-plausible-in-the-modern-world.mp3[/embed]...

In this Round Church Talk, Andrew Fellows explores what Other-centred love looks like and how the 'inferno of self-love' works in opposition to this. Christ alone is the reference point for understanding the greatness of the highest love.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12165731/andrew-fellows-eating-people-is-wrong-a-description-of-other-centred-love-as-the-better-valentine.mp3[/embed]...

To mark the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation, a city-wide church service was held to celebrate the truth of the gospel. Martin Luther's 95 Theses (1517) lit the fire of the Reformation and led to the reformation of the Roman Catholic Church, the reviving of essential Christian doctrines and the revolutionising of the landscape of Europe. Speakers: Andrew Fellows, Director of Christian Heritage Cambridge (4:55), Dr Jonathan Linebaugh, Lecturer in New Testament, University of Cambridge (33:05), and Steve Midgley, Senior Minister of Christ Church Cambridge.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12165627/fellows-linebaugh-midgley-reformation-500-the-truth-of-the-gospel.mp3[/embed]...

The year 2017 marks the 500 year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. When the integrity of Christianity becomes eroded and compromised, is a Reformation again inevitable? As a message to the Church, this talk by Andrew Fellows explores why history follows this pattern and imagines what Reformation might look like today.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12165418/andrew-fellows-smuggling-jesus-back-into-the-church-a-reformation-manifesto.mp3[/embed]...

Bertrand Russell comments that 'evidence is not enough' for the existence of God. This talk argues that the 'hiddenness' of God is not something to be apologetically defended. In terms of who God is, He must hide in order to be true to Himself.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12164424/andrew-fellows-not-enough-evidence-why-god-hides.mp3[/embed]...

The 'Anxiety of Modernity' isn't a far-off, abstract concept. Rather, it is something that each of us deals with on a daily basis. Andrew Fellows addresses the topic of Modernity and discusses what the Bible says about how we should approach life in the modern age.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12163040/andrew-fellows-living-in-the-machine-the-anxiety-of-modernity.mp3[/embed]...

Humans have always acted out of self-interest. However, in the modern period this has shifted to Narcissism. The modern person tends to use reality as a mirror with everything reflected back to the self. But will this lead to a 'sickness unto death' like Narcissus in the ancient Greek myth? (We apologise that we did not capture the conclusion to Andrew's talk)   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12162644/andrew-fellows-me-my-selfie-and-i.mp3[/embed]...
