    How thoughtful of God to arrange matters so that, wherever you happen to be born, the local religion always turns out to be the true one.

    Richard Dawkins.

    Islam is the religion of peace. A "piece" of you here. Another "piece" way over there.

    Well, Islam has the most references to accepting different Abrahamic faiths. One of the reasons the Ottoman empire spread so quickly was that acceptance.

    Life is composed of atoms. Atoms are dead. Dead atoms eat other dead atoms to live. When dead atoms stop living they die and are no longer exhibit signs of life. How can dead things live?

    Great quote. It reminds us all that religion is a matter of convenience. Take Catholicism and Christianity in general. You can be a thug all your life, but just repent or accept “Christ” or receive absolution the instant before you die, and you are eternally “saved.” It makes you want to only play golf in retirement with a priest.

    Or, getting a “piece” of those seventy two virgins. Something like Mormonism .......Funny how the most religious get to have the most sex.
    Like, go forth and multiply and bring more suckers into the flock.

    Could you say anything more meaningless?

    Could you ask anything thing more meaningless. You didn’t define it as technological singularity or spiritual singularity or universal sciantific singularity. How much more meaningless could a question be ? You need to speak with more clarity or don’t enter into any discussion on “singularity.”
    It’s like woo woo. You discovered a new word and wanted to sound scientific ?

    You’d be more convincing if you referred to an institution of science then then a speech by an individual so you can take a few quotes out of context. The way of the uninformed.

    The singularity is about the point of uncontrollable technological evolution. For an example, read Ray Kurzweil’s The Singularity Is Near.

    What is the point of your unintelligible obfuscation?

    That’s because Islam like most religions are primarily interested in growing their own wealth and extending their own “property” ownership. They’ll side with anyone who’ll help. Much like Christianity.

    It could not have been too unintelligible. . You got the message.
    More woo woo in your endeavor to make science the religion it isn’t.
    “Singularity” is not just one aspect. It’s tiresome having to educate the uninformed.

    Peterson is a doctor of psychology and professor in the topic, not just any "individual".

    As we have seen from James Watson's titles being stripped from him for saying the same things I am saying and Jordan Peterson has said, no "institution of science" is going to step out of the shadows and say these things publicly. Watson is Galileo and the left is the Catholic Church, enforcing its orthodoxy no matter what.

    No. I’m not going to read an individual’s opinion. I’ll read the institutional peer reviewed writings available to everyone. That’s called consensus and is the most reliable source for information. Try it. But you won’t like it. You have to think for yourself insread of following conspiracy theory, .lke religion.

    Why would you just listen to one doctor and not go to a team approach for treatment of an illness. You sufer from “conspiracist-ism.” You’ll look for anyone who agrees with you instead of the best ideas man has ever had, from the science community.

    Bulls.h.i.t.
    Institutional science is just the conduit of consensus and agreement of many. No more, no less. It’s more real then individuals you’ve predetermined will agree with you. That’s what you’re more interested in. You have an agenda.....

    My agenda is the TRUTH, something liberals avoid as if it were the deadliest poison, which to liberal policies, I suppose it is.

    Laughable. If truth is your agenda, we’d see more ligit institutional science references (or any at all). Some how a lecture by a conservative wack job is more ligit then Harvard Med or Johns Hopkins ? Get real. You’re interested in conspiracy theories that fit your agenda. Typing truth in caps doesn’t make it so. You “guys” are funny. Say something three times and you think it’s the truth....

    That’s civilization.

    It’s clear you don’t understand what I’m talking about. That is fine, just stop pretending.

    You are only showcasing your ignorance here. If you’re not familiar with what I’m talking about, do some research or ask about it. Stop acting like a smart ass when you are way out of your depth.

    I was open to be nice with you, but you chose to be antagonizing for no reason. I’m letting you off easy, but I don’t have any interest in further discussion with you.
