An Atheist’s Religion:

Writes Brian Dunaway:

My respect for Julian Assange is immense, but this gifted insight from him (quoted in Caitlin Johnstone’s article), surprised me:

“I know from our sources deep inside those Silicon Valley institutions, they genuinely believe that they are going to produce artificial inteligences that are so powerful, relatively soon, that people will have their brains digitized, uploaded on these artificial inteligences, and live forever in a simulation, therefore will have eternal life … It’s a religion for atheists. They’ll have eternal life, and given that you’re in a simulation, why not program the simulation to have endless drug and sex orgy parties all around you. It’s like the 72 virgins, but it’s like the Silicon Valley equivalent.”
