How Would the World React?


A Question to Readers

How would people from different countries, cultures and religions react if artificial general intelligence suddenly arrives on the world scene (say, in the form of a human-level intelligent robot) and it is clearly demonstrated that the science behind it was written down thousands of years ago in metaphorical texts of the Old and New Testaments?

In my opinion, the scientific community would, at first, try its best to discredit the claim but eventually most of them would be forced  to acknowledge the truth of it based on the evidence. Christians and believing Jews would probably be inclined to accept it as a sign from God. I have no idea how the other religions (Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.) would react. I'm hoping some of my readers may want to chime in with their own personal insights.
