Yassmin Abdel-Magied: What does my headscarf mean to you?
I am biased. In regards of "wearing a veil in all circumstances" I am biased*. When I see a veiled woman I automatically hear : "Allah protects me - allah is the most important thing in my life". "No matter what you have to say - or offer me … etc - allah will come first". I am not willing - at first sight - to engage with this person. _-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_ I am currently reading "Heretic" from Ayaan Hirsi Ali (after reading tens of other books about Islam). I recommend this book. As well as her other books and her conferences (talks). * and surely for other matters too.

Nick Bostrom: What happens when our computers get smarter than we are?
Religion as a mean of controlling the AI? And let’s be god. A generalization about religion ? : Dilbert has made an android (a). His dog (dogbert (d)) educates the android. http://dilbert.com/strip/1991-04-04 a. "Androids want to be like humans. Tell me what humans do". d. "Mostly, they eat, sleep, and hope they don't die." a. "That's it ? " d. "Unless they find religion… Then they eat, sleep, and look forward to dying."
