Humanity's values looks good at first glance. What about pride, cunning, and cruelty? Those are values of humanity; they're in accordance with the way some behave, anyway. So then we need some external standard: something congruent with somebody's theory of reality. There are quite a few of those, popularly known as religions. Unfortunately there are two groups of those: ones coming in from the Powers of Darkness (paganism), and those coming from God. What's the hapless AI to do? I think I know. It will be invested by an evil spirit; thus the antichrist will appear. Be careful out there.
