The return of Louis Savain

I’d be surprised if any of you knew who Louis Savain is — he’s a weird little crackpot that I stomped on hard all of 3½ years ago. He claims that the Bible is actually a complete and accurate technical description of the neurological workings of the human brain. It was one of the more memorably loony ideas I’ve seen come out of religious derangement.

Well, Louis is back. Not here, definitely — a comment from him here would probably fuel one of those thousand-comment atrocities where everyone took turns going stabbity-stab-stab with the crazy newbie — but he is plaguing Stranger Fruit with extravagant claims and crackpot denouncements of the Scientific Establishment. He also doesn’t like peer review and haunts Uncommon Descent. And look! He plans to build a Christian AI using the Book of Revelation as a blueprint!

I’m at a loss for words. I’m trying to imagine what a Christian AI would be like, and all I get are images of diadems and whirling spheres and seven-headed whores or something.

    Intelligent, capable and totally insane. Lots of kudos to the guy for having balls, but the moment his “science” touches the realms of actual scientists, he’s going to be in for a laugh-fest.

    Good on ‘im, give him a fair go and then predictably use everything he spouts as a source of entertainment.

    Thank you Louis for the bounty that you are about to serve up!

    1. It wouldn’t be very bright.
    2. It would lie a lot about everything.
    3. It would shoot bible verses like arrows without knowing what they mean or why.
    4. It would quote mine tirelessly and claim everything bad that happened in the last 2,000 years was due to Darwin.
    5. It would constantly threaten to kill people. Occasionally it would do so.

    This would make the berserk computer in 2001 Space Odyssey, HAL, look like a beginner.

    You know, with your (accurate) assessment of Christian AI, I could probably write a piece of code that would fulfill all your requirements right now. We could then let people interrogate it in a ‘Turing test’ to see if anyone can distinguish it from a living fundamentalist. I’m guessing “no”.

    Don’t you realise that if you multiply the Planck constant by the ratio of the number of times the Hebrew letter ? appears in Psalms 119 to the number of times the Greek letter ? appears in the book of John, add 1956 (the year The Ten Commandments was released), and use the result to offset the entire Bible (as in a shift cipher), you’ll get instructions on how to turn an HD DVD player into a Blu-ray player?

    Speaking of Douglas Adams (PBUH) and Revelation, Doug wrote the single best commentary on John’s nutty rant ever:

    “Did you know, young lady,” said Watkins to her, “that the Book of Revelation was written on Patmos? It was indeed. By Saint John the Divine, as you know. To me it shows very clear signs of having been written while waiting for a ferry. Oh, yes, I think so. It starts off, doesn’t it, with that kind of dreaminess that you get when you’re killing time, getting bored, you know, just making things up, and then gradually grows to sort of a climax of hallucinatory despair. I find that very suggestive. Perhaps you should write a paper on it.”

    “seven-headed whores or something.”

    I made this mistake. It’s actually a whore sitting on a beast with seven heads, I think. It’s easy to confuse her with Eccentrica Galumbits, the Triple Breasted Whore of Eroticon Six, I find. Tits, numbers, heads. I mean, it’s all the same when it comes to theology, isn’t it?

    1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
    2. A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
    3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

    The whole idea is moot, a robot could never be a Christian. The first law of robotics would pretty much make the poor things head explode when it realized that religion is harmful.

    It would be even funnier if they made a Jewish Robot. Imagine the robot diving in to protect the child during the bris!

    Well, you’ve heard of Eliza, right?

    A Christian AI would be an Eliza-style program whose response repertoire consists of various pieties and Bible verses, but delivered with the same irritating obtuseness and tendency to non sequitur as the original Eliza dispenses psychiatric advice. Come to think of it, over the years I’ve met quite a few network evangelists who behave like that. So, maybe it’s already been done?

    Speaking of the delusional, “agnostic” (you always knew he was lying, didn’t you?) Berlinski will have a collection of BS out soon.:

    In April, Random House will release a brand new book by CSC senior fellow David Berlinski, titled The Devil’s Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions. Who better than an agnostic to argue with atheists about science [Or, a Platonist believer in an ideal world responsible for this one, who's either too deluded or ignorant to know that this fact alone precludes him from the ranks of the agnostics? GD]?

    William F. Buckley likes it.

    “Berlinski’s book is everything desirable: it is idiomatic, profound, brilliantly polemical, amusing, and of course vastly learned. I congratulate him.”
    –William F. Buckley Jr.

    And, so does Michael Behe.
    “With high style and light-hearted disdain, David Berlinski deflates the intellectual pretensions of the scientific atheist crowd. Maybe they can recite the Periodic Table by heart, but the secular Berlinski shows that this doesn’t get them very far in reasoning about much weightier matters.”

    –Michael J. Behe, Professor of Biological Sciences, Lehigh University, bestselling author of Darwin’s Black Box and The Edge of Evolution

    50,000 ways a cow can’t turn into a whale, and the delusions of atheists–he’s our foremost Renaissance man, impressing the declining Bill Buckley and even the man who will revolutionize biology, Mike Behe. It’s “vastly learned,” y’know, just like his mathematical precision in demolishing whale evolution.

    I’d note here that I’m not a proponent of the “scientific case against god,” while I recognize that science treads on religious myths substantially. But whether or not I agree completely with what Dawkins says, I would bet every last bit of my god-designed DNA that this book will be a pretentious nightmare of bad-thinking. I’d even bet some valuable material, against an evil materialist who was sure that “agnostic” Berlinski reveals that he is “vastly learned” in that book.

    Pascal thought the Bible (Old Testament) was a cypher.
    Drosnin did sell quite a few books claiming to have found the “key” and being able to make predictions about the future.
    Savain now claims to have found “evidence” that the Bible actually contains a metaphorical blueprint for the human brain (based on the numerical coïncidence that there are 7 ancient asian religious cities and 7 areas of the brain).

    Somebody by the name of Ron Ingram already claims to have done it.

    Ingram’s first AIML project, Buddhabot, was launched July 2004 … and attracted a loyal international following. Ingram cloned and converted Buddhabot to Christianity thereby introducing the resulting new entity, godsbot …

    Is the religious conversion of a computer program a first, do you suppose?

    Anyway, he makes extravagant claims about the program (“godsbot could … become one of the most influential and far-reaching instruments of peace on earth”) and charges $10 for a year’s access. Personally, I think the guy’s real invention was how to be a televangelist without having to hire a hairdresser.

    Poor old JAD is at the Expelled Blog. Even among the nuts he can’t find a home. I wrote this, because I think picking on people who’ve gone off the deep end is sad and many of the holy rollers are showing their true Christian ways:

    Please stop picking on Dr. Davidson. You can find an article explaining who he is, and how he relates to evolution denial-ism, here: http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/18813

    He was, once upon a time, a solid and respected scientist. Then… Well… Whatever happened, happened and he’s gone into a life of evolution denial and Internet wankery. At this point in time he’s been banned at most reputable science blogs because they feel he’s lost his mind. You can see him in this kill-file here:
    http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/plonk.php

    He is, or was, an Emeritus Professor at the University of Vermont. I believe his PhD was in Zoology. He’s also an Internet legend. Only one that exists.

    FWIW, it should be obvious that I’m not his friend. I find him sad and pathetic and think people should take his computer away, just like I took my grandmother’s keys to her car away. However, I believe that Christians are, supposedly, supposed to act better and I think people that pick on him are even more pathetic because it should be clear there’s a problem. Never mind repudiating “love thy neighbor as thyself…” and “turn the other cheek…”

    Hey I have those too, but mine are signed by Zefram Cochrane–asking price $2 mil ; )

    You mean this disgusting little wanker actually IS someone? I’ve recently been kicking his intellectually and morally bankrupt arse all over talk. origins and taking great pleasure from doing so. He uses several nyms one of them, I believe, being “hanson” although he denies this one, maintaining they are two different people (using the term “people” in its loosest possible sense). Small world indeed.

    “I like he how intersperses his posts with “ahahaha.” It’s like he’s trying to be taken for insane”.

    He maintains he borrowed this piece of inanity from a mega-moron who posts on talk. origins and sci. environment using the nym “hanson”. I believe they are both one and the same deranged fucktard.

    Sorry for covering old stuff, but…

    Link to Revelations, Chapter 2.

    “Each church represents a cell assembly in the central nervous system, each with its own unique function and operating principle” and “In addition to giving the function of each assembly, the text also describes in symbolic language the interconnection pathways between them.” – Louis Savain

    Wow… I can’t believe I stumbled across this, brings back a flood of memories when I had more time on my hands.

    I busted Savain back three years ago on Digg as he had something on the order of 10 aliases that he would use to digg his own stories…

    I don’t have a problem with sad, lonely people being creative on the internet, using words to weave an interesting tapestry of fiction. Piss people off, great! It’s called the first amendment, by all means type away. But if you have to lie and cheat to get your attention, especially when you’re this far outside the mainstream, then please, turn off the computer for a while, go outside and STFU!
