    In the latest volume of Skeptic magazine, there is a review of a film about the life of Ray Kurzweil. (Ray Kurzweil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    At one point he asks himself " Does God exist?" His answer to himself is "Not yet!"

    Anyone care to comment?

    Ray Kurzweil is an uber futurist. I think he's talking about an event that he is predicting dubbed the singularity, when computers will be better at programing themselves than humans. Then artificial intelligence will be growing at an exponential rate,, until you have what he is calling god.

    I propose a new religion. Descendent worship.
    Clearly our descendents are going to gain powers of divine proportions, and we should bow down and worship them, giving our faith that they can reach down through time to lend us their aid.

    On the other hand .....

    Ray Kurzweil = Bad-ass

    He probably simply means to say that he has not yet gone from bad-ass status to God status. But he will.
    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy

    Pure comedy I would think. That is irreverent and funny.
