Well, let me be the first to congratulate you on the courage to make such a
break from tradition. Despite all areas in which one can be rational and
use cognition, it is very tough to go against blood-ties due to the
emotions involved...regardless of culture or creed. Odd though it may
sound, I think you'll find triggering the singularity a far easier task...
