Am I supposed to feel like an evil human being because I put more faith in black-and-white numbers from a responsible study than in the lament of some sobbing mother? Well, then, I'll just have to accept that. My children will have to live with the consequences of what I do, not with how I feel. Sorrow won't accomplish anything. If that makes me inhuman, then that's one more reason to desire to become transhuman--perhaps a better-designed being won't be so distracted by emotional reactions from making the right choices.
Wow, some actual transhuman/extropian content on this thread!
