Ray Kurzweil Casually Drops a Bomb: 'One Day We Will Have Non-Biological Bodies'

Ray Kurzweil, futurist and head of AI for Google, is one of the most brilliant minds alive today. According to him, humans and machines will ultimately merge, with technology outliving biological organs and body parts. Thursday on radio, Glenn and his co-hosts listened to Kurzweil's matter-of-fact prediction.

"The machine part will be so powerful that it will completely be able to model and understand the biological part. So even if that biological part went away, it wouldn't make any difference," Kurzweil said. "We'll also have non-biological bodies."

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

GLENN: Can you play a little bit of Ray Kurzweil? We have to get to this later, perhaps tomorrow. Listen to how casually Ray Kurzweil talks about what's coming.

VOICE: Well, we're going to become increasingly non-biological to the point where the non-biological part predominates and the biological part is not that important anymore.

PAT: Sure.

VOICE: In fact, the non-biological part, the machine part, will be so powerful that it will completely be able to model and understand the biological part. So even if that biological part went away, it wouldn't make any difference.

GLENN: Now, listen to this.

PAT: Right.

VOICE: Because the non-biological part already understood it completely.

VOICE: Will we also have non-biological bodies?

GLENN: Sure.

VOICE: We can create bodies with nanotechnology. We can create virtual bodies and virtual reality.

GLENN: Right. Right.

(laughter)

PAT: He's so matter of fact.

We'll just all be machines.

GLENN: I know. And this is the head of AI at Google.

PAT: No more feelings for anybody in humankind.

GLENN: One of the greatest minds alive today.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And one of the guys that Stephen Hawking is like, warning. You know, just -- matter of factly said, we're not going to have biological bodies anymore. Wait. Wait. Ray, can you go back to that part?

PAT: Wait. What?

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
