That is not nearly as offensive as his torture and murder of innocent children and babies just because he was angry with the parents.
Come on, Greatest, we all have bad days when we do things we shouldn't.

Can you forgive a rude God?
I'm sure he never meant to cause offence. I'm prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt.

It is just a little humor; something you have apparently lost the capacity for.
Well perhaps, from the perspective of being the subject of the humour, you are not best placed to judge its quality.

That is why we need impartial robots to decide every five years if you are worthy of life or if you should be aborted
I'm not sure what the cut off point for abortion is, but I seem to think it is significantly earlier than five years.

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 doesn't much matter, as long as she has access to free, safe abortion,
This is exactly the kind of solution Nick likes to find a problem for.

If such people have access to all known knowledge, via Internet search, at what point can we say that a rudimentary singularity is in place?
At the point where we cease to feel embarrassment on saying something that makes us appear unhinged.
