For awhile now, I’ve been thinking that I’d like to spend less time criticizing religion, and more time working on issues related to AI and existential risk. I don’t currently have any plans of going as far as Luke Muehlhauser of Common Sense Atheism did, and abandon writing about religion entirely, but you may notice a shift of emphasis from this point forward.
Or you may not. I’ve never been shy about using my blog to write about whatever the hell I felt like writing about, including Star Wars. But after finishing writing my second book and now that, as I mentioned yesterday, I’m spending an increasing amount of time going back to grad school, I thought I’d throw up a post giving myself official permission to spend less time on religion.
