Sebastian Kearse '10, English 65, The Cyborg Self, Brown University (Fall 2006)

"I was asked before today's sermon by a little child whether or not any proof to God existence. I was also asked what makes God. Is it His all powerful control of life or His omniscient presence of all that surrounds us? I told that child there is no physical proof besides the feeling in our heart. God may be able to do so much but that only extends to how much you believe that he can. A computer program can be one hundred times faster and more intelligent than any human. A crane has the ability to lift weights far above the human condition can. Does this make our own science God? No. It just means that our faith has to be ever stronger. We may rely on technology, but that does not mean that we have to worship it. God does not control us, he gives us choices. Machines control, so at best they can only be dictators."
