Are you suggesting the comparison is valid?
....
So best to let it go. It is a discussion best had elsewhere.

No, you don't get to tell me how to respond to you. That's not how life works. The comparison is valid. LGBT individuals are being denied rights because a select few put up a stink about their "religious freedom."
KARMA: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I'd check that source out more. I can't find anything on this and it struck me as odd that Iran would get involved in this given their history with Iraq ( the Iran-Iraq war which lasted 8 years was up there on the death and destruction scale and wasn't that long ago).

It would be odd indeed if they joined in without an invite from Iraq. Now *that* would be strange!

The pace of progress in artificial intelligence (I’m not referring to narrow AI) is incredibly fast. [...] The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year timeframe. 10 years at most.--Elon Musk

I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence," [Bill] Gates wrote. "First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don\'t understand why some people are not concerned."

Thanks!

Wow, the bizarre world of religio-politico alliances. I sort of stop and play the rather cynical " now, who gains what from this arrangement?" while at the same time hoping the over-all result is the most beneficial to the victims of the situation.
