For those following the IA vs. AI thread, consider the backlash now escalating against genetic engineering (bioenhanced food, cloning). And this hysterical backlash is happening despite the most ethical intentions and carefully crafted rhetoric of working biotechnologists.

Now imagine the public reaction when they discover the *real* agenda of most AI researchers who joyfully look forward to the day their creations make us all extinct!

Now _that_ should do wonders for their popular approval!
