Ray Kurzweil Joins Google As Director of Engineering

Google Cars Drive Themselves, In Traffic
I know what you mean and i think there will be plenty of people out there just like you but i think these self driving vehicles will eventually become mandatory due to how much safer they are statistically. At that point, would the people who really wanted to drive cars manually be that much different to those who wanted to smoke in bars before it was banned? In my opinion, it kind of becomes a selfish hobby if it has been proven to be so much more dangerous (which i think it will be eventually).
Ray Kurzweil Responds To PZ Myers
Uh no..because Kurzweil does not refute Myer's claims. Kurzweil's response underscores Myer's points.
Kurzweil is an idiot.

There you go. You only had a read a few lines and you would find a pretty clear refutation.
