I'm going to find references to the expression "Kill 'em all and let
God sort 'em out" and claim that is an example of the murderous intent
of believers in God.

Or "This dessert is to die for" is describing such a superlative
confection that one really has nothing else to live for after
attaining it; though perhaps it rather implies that the evolutionary
advantage of one's tribal group would be increased by this after-meal
treat despite one's own discontinuation as fair price.

At least we're discussing 100% computronium conversions for the
advancement of uploaded humanity instead of the 100% paper-clip
universe for the personal satisfaction of a deranged MNT-capable AI.

Also good that we're not going on about a Philosophical Zombie Apocalypse
