The next war will be nuclear and will take care of any global warming and over population issues. If that doesn’t do the trick a pandemic equal to or greater than the 1918-19 should do the trick.

New Rule: You don't get to dismiss creationism while taking this nonsense seriously.

I mean, do they think that having each fundamental particle in the universe represented by some number in a computer's physical memory makes that universe real? You might as well argue that imagining Game of Thrones makes it real in some other universe. :lol:

It doesn’t make it real, and the author doesn’t suggest that - it suggests that a simulated person plotted along enough data points might “consider” himself to be real. It is both philosophical and scientific in nature.. a play on Descartes’ original “Cogito, ergo sum.”

If a computer can simulate every synapse of the human mind, to include learning - then would that simulation not consider itself “alive”?

There are actual calculations that can go a long way towards proving the hypothesis which places this idea, at least for me, much more in the realm of reality than Biblical creationism.

It could flip over and still float. Then the top becomes the bottom, the bottom becomes the top and Guamanians become Nainamaugs. :D

Colorado's Large-Capacity Magazine Ban Is a Colossal Failure

An unintended loophole in a Colorado gun control bill illustrates what happens when lawmakers legislate technology they don't understand: Firearms owners find a way to work around the law without breaking it.


... some gun dealers noticed that the bill made no mention of magazine components and capitalized on the omission. Dealers throughout the state began selling "parts kits" that contain everything a gun owner needs to assemble their own large-capacity magazine at home. In fact, some gun stores throughout the state now sell magazines only in parts kit form.

This phenomenon became so widespread that a local Colorado news agency, 9NEWS, decided to conduct undercover visits to local gun stores in six counties. 9NEWS reports that in 7 of the 10 stores the outlet visited, "employees at one store after another offered to sell a large-capacity magazine disassembled in parts" to their "9Wants to Know" investigative journalism team.


https://reason.com/2019/11/14/colorados ... l-failure/

Colorado’s highest court just heard arguments challenging the Constitutionality of the law...

The Democrat wins Louisiana Governor's race in spite of Trump going all in trying to defeat him:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/john-bel- ... -louisiana

The Democrat won after Trump visited the state three times to rally for his ouster and throw support behind his Republican challenger.


Now, I realize that Louisiana is going to go Trump during the next Presidential election. But I still think it's good. I wonder how he's going to spin it.

Trump lent his support to three deep red state Republican gubernatorial candidates lately and two of them lost.
