When it comes to making new technology, motive is the biggest issue on how its going to be used. What I mean by this is if if I'm the guy that created sentient AI, I probably knew that it may have an evil intent. Should it then be heavily regulated (take that however you will) or should it be unregulated and just have to deal with the effects somehow?
I've heard it said that we should take pride in things like our appearance, work, and other stuff like that. I've also heard it said that pride comes before a fall. Do we take pride in things or do we get rid of it altogether?
I've heard it said that when dating someone, the guy pays for the meal every time no matter what. I've also heard that both people should pay what is proportional to their individual incomes. This is obviously barring any situation where one person willingly pay's for the other as a treat
Recently, I've been told that the best way to respond to a debate is to state your side and then ask questions if you have any. I was told I had to do this, in way or another, regardless of whether or not you are one of the first people to respond or if the debate has already been there for a while. I think it's ok for anyone to go straight to questioning if they wish or only make assertions. What are your thoughts
