Re: Superstition in Retreat

I think the cartoon is used effectively.

My one criticism is that it's not clear what the word "must" means in the final paragraph. (AI is necessary for the progress of science? AI is a necessary outcome of the progress of science? Creation of AI is a moral imperative?) Your readers may already have encountered anti-Singularitarian writings which claim that Singularitarianism conflates is with ought.
