Over the years Good Faith Paradigm has put forth some very ambitious ideas we believe will elevate the quality of life on earth. To consolidate some of the ideas in one place we will start off the new year bringing all of these ideas into focus.
Agriculture has been a core theme of religion and civilization since the beginning of recorded history, but we suspect Food Security will be paramount going forward. The issue now is that we have a global population of 8 billion people and we need to produce enough food to feed everyone while also being conscious about the long-term quality of our soil and any kind of disaster nature might throw our way. Although not all crops can be grown indoors, like wheat and corn, we can produce enough nutritious foods in our urban centers where it is projected 80% of the world’s population will live by 2050.
We covered this in more detail in our Food Security post.
UBI - Universal Basic Income - is a common term for a minimum basic income for the world’s population. With the rise of Ai and Robotics these new contributors in the workforce can displace many laborers. We can tax the interactions of these autonomous systems and capture value to be distributed among the population. These systems can be used to create a surplus of goods and services to provide basic income and necessities for everyone. This will allow people to pursue their passions and interests and contribute to society in a way that is meaningful to them.
Check out the diagram on the Universal Basic Income Feedback Loop post.
Religion has had a progressive evolution over the millennia. The earliest religions were animistic and polytheistic, with a focus on the natural world. Our evolution from a barbaric primitive species who dissected many of the fundamental forces of nature to a maturing advanced species who can synthesize these observations into a cohesive understanding wrapped in the sum of the knowledge we’ve gained is a testament to God.
The Second Coming of Christ.
The second coming of Christ is the blessed hope of the church, the grand climax of the gospel. The Saviour’s coming will be literal, personal, visible, and worldwide. When He returns, the righteous dead will be resurrected, and together with the righteous living will be glorified and taken to heaven, but the unrighteous will die. - Wikipedia
The Saviour’s coming will be literal, personal, visible, and worldwide. Review some other religions and their prophecies of the Second Coming of Christ on Wikipedia, and the interpretation of the images we’ve titled “The Miracles of the Holy Spirit.”
Energy security is the original impetus for the Kardashev scale of civilizations. The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization’s level of technological advancement based on the amount of energy they are able to use. The scale was proposed by Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev in 1964. The scale has three designated categories: A Type I civilization, also called a planetary civilization—can use and store all the energy available on its planet. A Type II civilization, also called a stellar civilization—can use and control energy at the scale of its planetary system. A Type III civilization, also called a galactic civilization—can control energy at the scale of its entire host galaxy.
Although we skew this measurement somewhat by including other capabilities, energy is a large part of what drives those capabilities. To get some insight to how we think the energy sector will evolve, check out our Decentralization post.
Fresh water is a finite resource that could become strained. The world’s population is growing at an exponential rate, and the demand for fresh water is increasing. Using desalinization technology, we can pump seawater to inland populated areas and desalinate the water for consumption and irrigation of crops. This will help to alleviate the strain on our fresh water supply and ensure that we have enough water for everyone.
In conclusion, we have a lot of work to do. We hope you will join us in our mission to bring all religions under one umbrella through a common thread and bridge science and religion.
