Not, however, more truthful. Standing up for what's real is to be preferred to wishful thinking based on magic words and failure to learn and weigh the facts, which is what the evangelists for the coming of the Singularity have chosen. "Brave and bold" are hollow words when used to support such nonsense, and I am unimpressed by that rhetorical gibberish.
