Compassion Argument

The Compassion Argument (formerly known as the Benevolence Argument and the Charity Argument) is part of the New God Argument. It is a logical argument for trust that superhumanity probably would be more compassionate than we are. The basic idea is that humanity probably will continue to increase in decentralized power, so it probably will destroy itself unless it increases in compassion. If we trust in our own superhuman potential, we should trust that superhumanity would be more compassionate than we are.
