Some Of The Smartest People Are Fools

According to Wikipedia, Marvin Lee Minsky (August 9, 1927 – January 24, 2016) was an American cognitive and computer scientist concerned largely with research of artificial intelligence (AI). He co-founded the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's AI laboratory and wrote several texts concerning AI and philosophy.

Tragically, it is tragic that Minsky was an avowed atheist who rejected Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. Biblically, that means he went to Hell forever in 2016 when he died. Strangely enough, I just read on Wikipedia that Minsky was a member of the pseudo life-extension company, Alcor, who freeze corpses upside down in liquid nitrogen, hoping one day to have eternal life as technology advances.

However, as compelling of an idea that it may be, we know from the inspired Holy Bible that this will never happen, at least not with Alcor's insane methods. The only true way to have eternal life is by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ. John 3:16, For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Minsky was a so-called genius, and yet he was a big fool, dying in his sins without Christ...
1st Corinthians 1:19-21, “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.“”
It is tragic that some of the world's best and brightest minds (Steve Jobs, Stephen Hawking, Thomas Edison and Marvin Minsky, to name just a few, were all Christ rejecters). Jesus warned everyone in John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

  1. Praise the Lord, Brother!

    It is sad that some of the biggest geniuses in history are/were fools since they reject GOD and HIS FREE GIFT of salvation.

    The honest truth is that the biggest thing is really JESUS. When we have JESUS, we have THE BIGGEST THING. We are SONS of the Creator of the word and WE ARE SAVED.

    Honestly, I can find NO BIGGER THING than this. Praise the Lord for SALVATION.


Look At People As Broken Instead Of Bad
