GreenAdder: Is this about Roko's Basilisk?


No, it's about L. Ron Hoover and the First Church of Appliantology.

Bumblefark: I...don't understand. What's the point in worshiping the AI, again?

The premise of religious worship was the primitive notion that if we just heap praise on some greater being, it wouldn't get all pissy and smite us, and we could maybe even coax it into doing nice things for us -- quid pro quo like. Basically, it's a just refined and ritualized form of magical thinking.

Wouldn't an intelligence greater than our own be intellectually beyond the caveman logic that gods can be controlled through flattery? Wouldn't an AI's lack of emotion make it incapable of feeling praise, rendering the bargain moot, anyway? Why are we assuming "more intelligent" means "more powerful"? And if it doesn't, again -- what's the point in worshiping it? I...I'm clearly missing something.


Worshipping something that is known to exist and might actually have the power to hurt you is a lot better than putting your faith in imaginary friends.

Voiceofreason01: Hey look, some asshole is looking to cash in by creating a phoney "religion". Must be a day ending in "y".


So, no different than any other religion then.

The singular difference between "phoney" religion and "not phoney" religion is: "was it invented at least 200 years ago or not?"

10 IF answer = "yes" PRINT "Real religion"
20 IF answer = "no" PRINT "Fake religion"

So, what's the difference between a real religion and a phoney one? As a religious person I'd like to know.
