Re: Is the singularity coming sooner than we thought?

Evolved Man will be programmed what and how to love. Not your problem, Nick, evolution seems to have overlooked you. Yes, so far I've been able to avoid all attempts by representatives of the Great Beast to evolve me. If my rejection continues I will be forever banned from becoming part of the grea...

Re: How would you control the world population?

If the fetus is causing so much trouble self justification demands that it must be complained about. Actually, you are the one causing most of the trouble, yet you are also the one doing most of the complaining. As Simone Weil once famously said, "until you find yourself pregnant with an unwanted c...

Re: How would you control the world population?

just kill first and ask questions later. Why bother with the questions? The love for wisdom is gradually replaced in secularism by the love for arguing and complaining. If you don't ask questions what is there to argue and complain about? If the fetus is causing so much trouble self justification d...

Re: Is the singularity coming sooner than we thought?

Heart transplants and pacemakers, synthetic valves,cochlear implants, lung and liver transplants, prosthetic arms and legs, synthetic hips and knees... The list grows with advances in technology. As more and more of a person’s internal workings are replaced by devices, at what point are we more rob...

Re: How would you control the world population?

Why bother with them when a woman knows she can kill her mistakes at socially accepable points along the cycle of life? Well done, Nick, you finally grasped it. :) We agree. Why bother with philosophy as the love of wisdom when it is easier to just kill our mistakes? Plato described Man as a being ...

Re: How would you control the world population?

Nick believes that "basic psychology" concerns the mental machinations of globs of genetically marked protoplasm of early pregnancy. Noted. You might have at least attempted to address the issue without retreating into silliness. What you know about psychology could fit on the back of a postage sta...

Re: How would you control the world population?

Nick supports political parties that kill people by policy via callous neglect, yet the insensate blob of protoplasm of early pregnancy, less sentient than than the animals he eats, is given special status. Why? The "wholeness of the life cycle itself". In other words, he thinks it's unfair to curt...

Nick is blissfully unaware that he is the best advertisement for abortion imaginable.
Yes I bring out the fangs of those with the lust for the kill. Recognition and valuing the life cycle must be eliminated to justify the glory of the kill.

Re: How would you control the world population?

I really think you've lost the grip, Nick. It's time to retire with your robots to a nice padded room. I know it is fashionable to relish the kill of the politically incorrect in the age of reason. it is the easy way to control population and convenience is a great motivator in these times. The que...

Re: How would you control the world population?

Nick cares more for mindless and insensate blobs of protoplasm than adult women. Just because a mindless, insensate blob of protoplasm in early pregnancy might one day become a human doesn't mean they must all be preserved. Aren't our current overpopulation problems sufficient? Whatever, they can b...

Re: How would you control the world population?

I will take seriously any argument against abortion from a person who is prepared to legally adopt all the babies they "save". Once you are deemed unworthy I will take seriously any argument from someone objecting to the decision rendered by the three robot panel that you are unworthy of life provi...

The classic belief is that pregnancy involves her womb, not her curriculum.
What kind of answer is that? Have you just woken up, Nick?
It is just a little humor; something you have apparently lost the capacity for.

Re: How would you control the world population?

Skip It doesn't much matter, as long as she has access to free, safe abortion, Yes the modern solution to the problem of a growing population. Kill first and ask questions later. That is why we need impartial robots to decide every five years if you are worthy of life or if you should be aborted as ...

Suppose a girl entered college conditioned to believe in what education is. She didn’t enter with the conscious intention to get pregnant
How can you be sure it wasn't in the curriculum?

Re: How would you control the world population?

In the age of reason: I decide whether to replicate myself, and whether and how long my life is worth extending - I don't leave those decisions either to some "emotional respect for life", (which in practice usually means: God values ...
