Skepchick Sam (I just love saying that!) and I both attended the Singularity Summit held in San Francisco a few weeks ago. This is an Artificial Intelligence conference with a difference; some proponents of “The Singularity” believe that computer intelligence will surpass human intelligence with a decade – plus a whole lot more…
Some skeptics think that the Singularity has the hallmarks of a cult.
There are many ‘hidden’ cults, such as Amway, and dodgy organizations that offer dodgy certifications.
What are some groups or organizations you find to be hidden cults?
Have you ever participated in any of these hidden cults?
