 April 5 - The birth of intelligent machines? Scientists create an artificial brain connection that LEARNS like the human mind
 Article: Transhumanism

Comment from UTT:
The fact that artificial intelligence is being created by linking computers to humans can not be debated. The question that needs to be asked is where is this headed and will life be altered in a way that will set up human-mechanical-electronic hybrids that will have the potential of playing a role to set up an antichrist system that controls the world? Christians know that God is in charge and that this will not happen without His intervention. Since the fall that occurred in the Garden of Eden mankind has been enticed by Satan to believe that humans have the ability to replace God with fleshly wisdom.
The idea of a robot that can learn and function on its own, without the need for any human help, might sound like the plot to the latest science fiction blockbuster. But scientists have got one step closer to making this a reality with the creation of the first artificial brain connection that can learn autonomously. The groundbreaking study represents a big step toward intelligent machines that learn without the need for human input.

 April 10 - One in Four British Christians Say Resurrection of Jesus Didn't Occur: Survey
 Article: Signs Of The Last Times

Comment from UTT:
To say that you identify yourself as a Christian while at the same time denying the resurrection is a contradiction of terms. Christianity is based on the fact that the resurrection of Jesus Christ occurred as He was raised from the dead.  Without this truth Christianity is a false belief system. Of course, Satan uses this to cause confusion and division.
One in four people who identify themselves as "Christians" in England say that they believe that the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ did not happen, according to a new poll. ComRes conducted the survey of 2,010 British adults by telephone for 10 days at the beginning of February, asking them a series questions about their beliefs on the Bible and Easter. BBC local radio commissioned the survey for Palm Sunday, measuring the responses of the "General Public," "All Christians," and "Active Christians," which refers to Christians who attend religious services at least once per month.

 April 9 - Russia and Iran say U.S. 'crossed red lines' with strike on Syrian air base
 Article: Wars And Rumors Of Wars

Comment from UTT:
The Bible mentions both Russia and Iran (Ezekiel chapter 38) as partners who will attempt to destroy Israel in the last days. Read the news and read the Bible and see how the two compare.
A statement released by "the joint command operation center of Syrian allies," a group that includes Russia and Iran, warned the U.S. against further military actions in the war-torn country, following a missile strike on a Syrian air base last week.

Referring to its defense of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, the group warned that they would support Syria and its people "with all means that we have." "The United States crossed red lines by attacking Syria, from now on we will respond to anyone, including America if it attacks Syria and crosses the red lines," the statement read. "America knows very well our ability and capabilities to respond well to them, [and] we will respond without taking into consideration any reaction and consequences."
