"Artificial intelligence promises to remake the world. These believers are fighting to make sure thousands of years of text and tradition find a place among the algorithms. As we confront the question of what makes us human, let us not disregard the religions and spiritualities that make up our oldest kinds of knowledge. Whether we agree with them or not, they are our shared inheritance, part of the past, present and future of humankind."

"All, all except Phineas, constructed at infinite cost to themselves this Maginot Line against this enemy they thought they saw across the frontier, this enemy that never attacked that way--if he ever attacked at all. If indeed he was the enemy."

Can religion help? What are you on drugs? It could only make it worse. Haven't you been paying ANY attention to the Abrahamics? ANY attention?

You are insulting. There is no excuse for personal attack when expressing an opinion. You didn't read the article or my comment, and gave no thought to what was being asked.

The article asked a question and offered an answer. You can disagree with the article. BUT My comment did not say that organized religion was the answer. I merely talked about the VALUES that religion offered the human race...besides the ones that the priests and medicine men used to push power and warfare.

I DO see the endless strife that humans engage in so that their religion can be THE religion. Just look at Jerusalem.

What I made clear, is that there ARE values inherent in religious observances that say things like "Thou shallot kill,"which are beneficial to society. Now, lawlessnessis so common that our Congresspeople are culpable.. and cannot see how corrupt they have become to stay in power.

Now we have a society where families are scattered, neighborhoods are gone, and children left to strangers, as people leave to work 12 hours in order to eat and pay the rent as inequality destroys society and only the wealthy have choices.

24/7 the voices on the tv and the internet direct the behavior of the people to sell them ideas, not just products.. Vance Packard wrote about this in "The Hidden Perusaders" way back in the fifties. And now we have the "rotting internet""-a collective hallucination, a set of independent efforts united by common technological protocols to appear as a seamless, magical whole. There are a small number of influential people, including the president, who have repeatedly been instrumental in stoking misinformation about the election or spreading unproven treatments for the coronavirus

What I said in my comment, when I put up that QUESTION, is that all beneficial societies that work for their people and who value human life practice such behaviors. Neighborhoods and communities where people knew each other valued good behaviors. Schools were run by the local people, now they are run by the corporations for profit, and are engaged in dumbing us down. See my series War on Teachers.

It is Shared knowledge that MAKES DEMOCRACY POSSIBLE.An ignorant citizenry is the goal, not just the profit made by the businesses that take over our schools. Public education and its importance in a democracy is what I meant when I said that we have lost the values that make society possible. It was so easy". 15,880 separate systems across 50 states and 3000 miles! Like health care; EDUCATIONAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX did their thing and bankrupted the states so the first thing to go were the schools" and us! Teachers have a big impact on student behavior. Their impact on behavior matters far more than their impact on test scores.

Ignorance is easily visible when people attack what they do not begin to grasp. YOU are the product of this need to cause division, rather than offer genuine argument..
