Oh, that's great! Just what we need: highly intelligent religious fanatics to
blow us all to kingdom come. Well, at least the world will die at the hands of
smart maniacs instead of boring knuckleheads... that always makes things more

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego, human values, scientific relinquishment, malevolent AI,
non-sensory experience, SETI

We move into a better future in proportion as the scientific method
accurately identifies incorrect thinking.
