Going to church camp is always a weird time for me. 2 years ago I listened to the "Genesis and Evolution" episode on the way to camp. From there, the questions that had been always in the back of my mind completely consumed me. Since then, I have had a complete reconstruction of my faith, and have realized my worth as a woman in the church. Please be thinking of me this week as I head off to camp and try to be a light to these kids. Also, Thank you @mike and @vishnu for your work!
As much as i wish they didn’t have to, it’s real refreshing to be on mastodon and seeing admins and users badgering and blocking fascists and misguided free-speech advocates. It really demonstrates that there is agency in this community that doesn’t exist on corporately owned/influenced platforms. We can squash these cockroaches, rather than just having to watch them mill about in the corners of our rooms. #nt
"I notice that the people who are afraid of machine super-intelligence are almost exclusively white men. I don't think anxiety about AI is really about AI at all. I think it's some white men's displaced anxiety upon realizing that women and people of color have and have always had sentience, and are beginning to act on it on scales they're unprepared for. There's a reason that AI is almost exclusively gendered as female."
On the tails of @mike political science discourse. It's scary to see what we are seeing. I've started listening to the podcast it could happen here. It talks about the negative results of a Trump impeachment the revolt of his base as well as the far lefts revolt. How this current situation can walk us directly into a second civil war.
Division's among the oppressed are a gift to the oppressor.
