God will be replaced by AI collective consciousness, says 'Da Vinci Code' author Dan Brown Daily Mail - October 13, 2017
Humanity no longer needs God but may with the help of artificial intelligence develop a new form of collective consciousness that fulfills the role of religion, author Dan Brown has said. Brown made the provocative remark on Thursday at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany where he was promoting his new novel, 'Origin', the fifth outing for Harvard 'symbology' professor Robert Langdon. Landon was also the protagonist of Brown's novel 'The Da Vinci Code', a book that questioned the history of Christianity. 'Origin' was inspired by the question 'Will God survive science?', said Brown, adding that this had never happened in the history of humanity. 'Are we naive today to believe that the gods of the present will survive and be here in a hundred years?' Brown, 53, told a packed news conference.
