apprehensions of nuclear war, but ended with a mad flourish:

we WILL be seeing this sort of nightmarish conflict happen. So, the worst
is yet to come if these views are correct. And the "miracle" technologies
of AI, nanotech and biotech may also fulfill other Biblical prophecies.

>A part of me hopes I am wrong and these things are not bound to happen. I
don't claim that God will force humanity to nuke itself, but being divine
can simply see what we will do to each other when left to our own devices.


Sigh. This is simply inaccurate. Leading scholars know that the world will
be destroyed when the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy fight to the death
on top of Sugar Mountain, with the victor killed by Santa Claus. Luckily
they will all be reincarnated when their thetans are retrieved from the
pumping stations.
