New mythologies develop continually, and one that is supported by mathematics has the hand of sacred untouchable Truth to it.

It would be a daring one to publish further than a few online groups, selectively here and there; when I know the audience, I can customize the message somewhat. Criticism of Hawking is no light matter and I’d lose ears quickly at the merest hint of a man who is great in so many ways in the public eye – and also to myself.

Yet my critique goes to any futurist who then finds a movement surrounding them. Ray Kurzweil’s singularity, once a marginal quack idea from a guy who made an excellent digital piano and did amazing engineering for voice in the 90s, has been blossoming in popularity until now, in 2015, it’s blasphemous to even give it the slightest criticism. New mythologies develop continually, and one that is supported by mathematics has the hand of sacred untouchable Truth to it.

Human progress of infinite growth? How can I argue against that?

Statistics show doom and gloom are just around the corner? How can I question that?

But I do. I just have to be careful in doing so as it places me in the minds of some in a far different category than I belong in.
