Bullshit, and I didnít just give a thought experiment as an example, I
showed you an experiment that was actually performed in a lab and
described in one of the most highly regarded science publications on
this planet. It described how an atom had been teleported over a
distance of one meter; it demonstrated that nothing in the scientific
method can discern any difference between it and the atom that existed a
fraction of a second ago one meter away.

You remarked ďthe atoms themselves weren't teleportedĒ, I guess you
figure the atomís soul stayed put because I canít think of what the
hell else you could be talking about. If you canít get over these
medieval beliefs you have no chance, the Singularity will kill you dead
dead dead. It will probably kill me too but at least I have a chance.
