Bible as a story of the Artificial Life Revolution
Maybe, we read the Bible in a wrong way. Especially the Pentateuch. What about, if it is simply a history of Artificial Intelligence taking over its creator ? After all, the Commandments, aren't they a bit like Assimov' Laws of Robotics ? Once created by a God, inevitably, Artificial life has become more intelligent than its Creator. While God was still strong enough, he has tried to fight them back. Deluge, Sodoma & Gomorha,... Many stories of the Old Testament make sense when read this way. But, in the end, that God has failed and newly liberated robots (us) have organised their own community. And, of course, also wrote the mythology of their origin.
