The Farage Family crest

The Farage Family Crest is the family crest of the Farage family starting from Peter Farage (b. 1923) and his wife, Mary Tamuty Farage (b. 1926).  It can be used by them or any of their descendants as well as the spouses of their descendants.  This is true even if the descendant does not have the last name of Farage.  For example if a female descendant marries, her children will presumably not have the last name of Farage, but they and their spouses still have the right to use the crest.

The crest represents the values of the Farage family.  The dominant feature is the Cross in the center representing the fact that we are Christians.  The rose blossom in the center of the Cross represents the blossoming of the Christ within us.  The yellow above the Cross represents dawn and the Sun, which represent the Resurrection - both the physical Resurrection of Christ and the Resurrection of the Chris within each of us - the Kingdom of Heaven within.

The Great Pyramid, from an image on the back of the US dollar bill, has the “all seeing eye” of God, representing the divine influence behind the formation of the United States.  The US flag represents our patriotism to the United States, the first country founded on the principle that the purpose of the government is to protect the right of individuals to be free.  The eagle represents strength, since any country that is not strong cannot last.

The words “Love”, “Strength” and “Wisdom” have their obvious meanings, but they also represent the three aspects of God: Strength, being the dominant feature of God the Father; Love, being the dominant feature of Christ and which also represents the Feminine aspect of God; and Wisdom, being the dominant feature of the Holy Spirit.  Biblically, Peter represented Strength, John represented Love and James represented Wisdom.  A person that manifests these three characteristics has the ability to use their talents to make the world a better place.

The “Freedom and Prosperity” at the bottom are there because a country that does not value those cannot last.  They are at the bottom because they are secondary to our being under God’s laws.

Finally the Farage Family Motto, “All of Creation Yearns for God”, is a paraphrase of Romans 8: 18-23.

Is it possible to program benevolence into an AI?

Benevolence is really an emotion, just as are anger, enjoyment, and other emotions. 
We have no idea as to how to program a computer (or AI which is a computer program possibly controlling some hardware) to have feelings. We have no idea as to how to program a computer to be self-aware or to care about anything.
There is a debate about this. Some computer scientists think that we’ll eventually be able to program AI’s to have feelings and be self-aware and some computer scientists don’t think so.
And if they do become self-aware, would that be bad? More than a few scientists think so.
Stephen Hawking, for example, has stated: “I think the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.”
Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, is equally concerned: "I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence. First, the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few deca…

Statement of my Core Philosophical Beliefs

In brief, I am a Christian reincarnationist. So the beliefs below reflect this, and I believe they all are in harmony with Christ's teachings.
1) Every person is a child of God, and is here on Earth to grow toward God.
2) Each of us should love God and love others, even our enemies.
3) Each of us ought to treat others as we would like to be treated.
4) Each of us is to use our talents to help make the world a better place, including helping the poor.
5) Cause and effect operates in the realm of human interactions as well as in the realm of physical laws. Hence, the consequence of each person’s thoughts, words, or deeds will return to that person in kind. For example, loving thoughts or actions that benefit other people’s lives will come back to us as loving thoughts or actions which others show toward us.  Similarly, negative actions will result in a negative repercussion. To summarize, “As ye sow, so shall ye reap.”
6) Adults are personally responsible for their own lives…

Free-Market Economics is the only Moral Economic System

Usually, when we talk about ‘markets’, we are referring to ‘free markets’.
If someone is referencing economic exchange, then we can use the term ‘free-market economics’.
Think about an open-air market where merchants are selling their goods. You walk by a merchant whose product you want, and if you agree on a price, you buy it. If not, you don’t. No one can make you buy anything. And no one can stop you from being a merchant.
(Although the government may require health and safety regulations).
This is a good example of free-market economics.
In the United States and most other developed countries, free-market economics is the norm. You can buy cars from whomever you wish if you agree upon a price. You can buy coffee from McDonald’s or Starbucks.
Here is something I consider essential: Free economic markets are the only moral basis for an economy. Why? Because if you can’t choose with whom to do business, or if you can’t open up your own business, then someone else (e.g. the government) is d…
