/u/advancedatheist, I've thought a lot about that. Especially considering that I was a mormon Transhumanist before I lost all belief.

Honestly, while I think that the singularity will happen, I have lots of doubts.

I don't know if it will turn out good or bad. There are so many points where it can just go FUBAR.

I don't see any leaders as messiahs. Some smart people will be more instrumental than others in advancing technology, but they are human, and make mistakes.

It doesn't have much to do with how I live my day to day. I do have some meta goals about being a kind of person who will survive to see it, if it happens within my reasonable lifespan to be openminded to all of the changes that will happen.
