Ask A Genius 196 – Belief and Population Sizes (Part 2)
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
June 12, 2017
[Beginning of recorded material]
Rick Rosner: That interlopers into Western society are trying to take it over by having more babies. That includes Muslims and Hispanic people, but while I think that is wrongheaded in a lot of ways. The US is less than 1% Muslim now.
The rate at which Muslim Americans reproduce by 2040, according to one estimate, they’ll be 2.1% of the population, which is a still really a tiny fragment of the population; whereas the world AI population by at least one person I know to be about 1 trillion by 2100.
I believe there was a march against Sharia Law. That somehow enough Muslim Americans will take over enough of America to impose Sharia Law. But like I said, those people marching against Sharia should be marching against robots.
Robots are going to be made at a fantastically greater rate than compared to Muslims. In any case, these normative models; these lifestyles that people are compelled to embrace and promote, and to fight for, at the expense of alternate lifestyles are models of how to make the species more successful.
Not necessarily accurate models, but models on how to pump out more people.
