Response to 4th law of robotics (Reply #33)

Tue Oct 9, 2012, 11:37 AM

37. No, one is a scientific "solution" in search of a problem.

I notice you didn't address my first point
>> There are over 7 billion people on this planet and it is growing every day.
>> There is absolutely NO shortage of human sperm and definitely NO shortage
>> of new human mouths to feed so just WHY is this viewed as a "useful" issue
>> to solve?

Does this not raise any concern in you?


I agree that the true solution to the other three questions are social rather than
purely scientific. I also agree that the "social" solutions for the first two are not ones
that will be readily accepted - especially in societies where women are viewed purely
as breeding machines to be used to achieve the goal of outnumbering the "others".

(Your third "solution" wasn't worthy of the name but the answer would be - again - social
not scientific.)

Do you agree with my first point or do you believe that we need more & more humans
on the planet?

Additionally, do you believe that adding more & more humans who are otherwise
removed from the gene pool is a good thing for the species?
