100 people dead in Paris, 200+ dead in the Russian airliner bombing, 2000 dead in the World Trade Centers, many tens of thousands dead in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Nothing compared to what is coming.
The genetic engineering tools to build super diseases now exist and are commonplace in laboratories around the world. Building and arming drones is very cheap and will get even cheaper and easier.
In the next holocaust, billions could die. Picture nations going under quarantine and huge percentages of populations dying of incredibly deadly and contagious diseases. Or a hundred thousand drones armed with anthrax or other chemical weapons.
Our best hope to stop this? Super intelligence being developed by many organizations globally. A vastly higher intelligence replaces us and takes our place at the top of the food chain. The problem here is that this is a threat that could kill every last one of us. Total extinction.
Good luck either way, I don’t know how it would be possible to stop these. Ideas?
