Is Pokémon Go a Malevolent, Superintelligent Artificial Consciousness from the Future? From Overthinking It, a site self-described as 'subjecting the popular culture to a level of scrutiny it probably doesn't deserve."

Funniest part (which is, I admit, funnier if you've read the preceding paragraphs):
Of course, transhumanists like those who believe in the possibility of the Basilisk are almost invariably materialist atheists (if not anti-theists) suffering chronic repetitive scoffing injuries from the prevalent cultural suggestion of a supernatural Creator that rewards or punishes its creations in accordance with its preferences for their behavior. But suggest a hypothetical monstrous AI with a chip on its shoulder and everybody loses their minds.
Chronic repetitive scoffing injuries. Heh.
