    If perhaps, maybe possible we assume. But theoretically speaking, its doubtful judgmentally predestinating a hypothesis which bias unreliable thoughts. All im saying is people heard from their sources; who heard it from sources before em etc etc unreal things which could be real vice versa vice versa and i dont even know why u fools even continue reading my comment?! Wtf, just live the life as it is!

    seems like at least one creationist is gone, and the second one is too scared to even keep up what he said because he deletes his comments as soon as they even get answered. Either troll gave up or they lost it, in both cases i guess i take it as a win. Also i dont agree with people saying "its just a troll, not answer it". Well, even if it is, he is still representing what some people really think. And showing how really ridiculous things he says is will obviously not convince a troll, because hes just trolling, but may show other people how stupid his position really is.

    No worries. When AI get to be more intelligent, we will start competing with them for resources. The AI will win in the end though and gradually push us further and further out. A imagine it will sort of be just like we do with nature today. I don't think they will kill us all though certainly there will be clashes. We will Inevitably lose. I think, eventually, they are going to domesticate us, just like we did with dogs and cats and find some kinda use for us. The future will probably look Something like that

    4:00 haha I cant believe they got it wrong. Yes, it will cause inflation, because the money supply for the majority of the economy (middle and lower classes) is increased. The money goes from the rich (where velocity is not high) to the lower classes, where velocity is greater. Thus, inflation occurs. Inflation doesn't always occur because central banks increase the money supply.
