Culturally, it is the strong belief that the government, military, big business and their associated science will fall pray to human greed and hubris and doom us all.

why? Because I don't live in a fantasy world where zombies exist and skynet is in our near future?

Or is it because I can think?

My initial question, reworded, is why there are so many idiots on fark who believe in things like zombies and skynet. Religion and/or greed has nothing to do with it. The operative word is IDIOT.

NSA is working on an AI called AQUAINT....baby steps to SKYNET. How far back do you have to go for people to think something like WATSON was impossible. Were those "an AI like WATSON is impossible" naysayers idiots then....are they still idiots?

The idiots are the ones who are ironing thier clothes when the firemen come to rescue them from the burning house....probably has something to do with denial.

You will have had plenty of warnings or plenty of tells leading up to a SKYNET like entity going active.....but when it does will you still be in denial?

Actually with sufficiently advanced nanotech, we could probably sustain, control and regenerate dead bodies and allow them to walk the earth.

And I'm not sure why skynet is really that unrealistic of a proposition. We almost definitely will create advanced AI that will attain sentience, and it's possible that it could gain access to the world's nuclear arsenal if it really wanted to.

Neither are likely, but to outright dismiss them isn't a sign of intelligence or creative thinking. It certainly is a sign of someone who's not very fun to talk to.
