“Behold molten children”: Recurrent Neural Networks for Generating Even More Word of God

Please note: This post is not to be taken seriously, other than to show an artificial system has learned enough from a lot of text how to generate new text that is on the surface quite similar, but that nonetheless misses the narrative arc of the original. It is very interesting that the system appears to be using proper nouns, e.g., “house of the Hizied”, “of the Luttite”, “sons of Meshel”, which do not appear in the source material.

The book of Genesis has only 31 verses in its first chapter, but what if it had more? Using the fantastic code of Andrej Karpathy, I have trained a recurrent neural network (2 Divine Hidden Layers each with 100 Glorious Neurons) on the entire King James translation of the Bible (4,521,345 characters in total), to model the relationships between its characters. I then sample from the system (with a seed of 3 and a temperature of 0.7) with the text in quotes as the priming, and select all inspired text up to the line break.

Just to give some context, here are the original last three verses of Genesis ch. 1:

Gen|1|29|
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

Gen|1|30|
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

Gen|1|31|
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Now we “recover” the next ten verses of Genesis ch. 1 from our inspired RNN:

“Gen|1|32|”
Take after a beam of his fathers the land of Egypt.

“Gen|1|33|”
Martan, the camels of the earth; hear the priests, that is at the second time in the midst of the hand of Jordan.

“Gen|1|34|”
Of the noise of a molten children, when he shall prosper to the truth, and the families of the second men of the house of the LORD because every man of God, which are refrare sons, nor his sons and every strength of the house of the Hizied before the words of Israel:

“Gen|1|35|”
Let the thorn hard said, I have approved like a prince of thy servants in the earth: for thou hast been my son, and the house of Israel, and shall see the children of Israel, and shall come upon us, that thou hast made for the gate of you above the days of the sword:

“Gen|1|36|”
Of the noise of Saul and Jerusalem, and law in the sea to the place of the nakedness of the land of Egypt: he shall not come to pass before the children of Israel.

“Gen|1|37|”
I have not abhorred a mighty man to eat of the house of Joses, and reigned in the land of the congregation of the LORD.

“Gen|1|38|”
There is no captains of the name of the LORD, and the doors was the lamb, and for the earth.

“Gen|1|39|”
Leten think about the king’s house, and hath delivered them which the LORD shall go forth to the generations, and they have found of seven and fifty and lands the children of Israel: his sons is the second, and the commandment of the Luttite, and the word of the LORD; whereof they have brought forth to the truth.

“Gen|1|40|”
Saying, Why bear down the family of the children of Israel; who will join of a linen of the land of Egypt: he shall not come to pass from the man, that I have set before the LORD.

“Gen|1|41|”
Then did it be called the family of the children of Israel; the trold come to kill the children of Edom in the house of Judah, even all that shall she see his people with his house:

“Gen|1|42|”
Which is it a face that the law, saying, I pray thee, and thy servants have gathered the mount of the LORD thy God.

Here are verses 100, 10001, 1000001, and 1000000000000000000000000000000000009:

“Gen|1|100|”
Have delight a garrificion of the light of the house of Joses, and pitched the families of the sea, and they rejoiced to the law of God.

“Gen|1|10001|”
Of the north and booden of the tabernacle of the law, and thy servants have failed the days of the LORD their God.

“Gen|1|1000001|”
Have delight about the land of the wicked, and shall be could not the book of the house of the LORD come unto me.

“Gen|1|1000000000000000000000000000000000009|”
yet not the LORD God of the plains, and he shall prophesy unto thee, and the LORD loose sheeply, and the same of the sons of Meshel, and all that remain in the day of the earth; they shall stone you the eighth month the inhabitants of your daughters, with a calf, and cut off from the sea, they are lamentations.
