You pretend to KNOW what a Singularity would/would not do or consider to be
a crime? Maybe time is irrelevant to the Singularity? Maybe there is
enough matter in the universe that the 0.001% (or whatever) of which is in
use by natural evolution is irrelevant and to just cultivate it would be a
heinous crime.

Please don't pretend to know what a Singularity would do.
