I thought Extropians where far ahead of this ridicule.

You better hope Spike that the AGI doesn't come back
with a basic beliefs in religion as religion has been
around for centuries.  What will you do then?  I'm
quite sure an AI will have to determine what all that
literature was about and how to make sense of it. 
What if there is an equation...hope your not wrong?  

Beliefs are personal choices and not all personal
choices are the right ones but I guarantee that by
ridiculing other peoples beliefs you are not aiding in
advancing any cause.

Just an opinion
