Um, not so sure that this is how forces work. If you have one sling that has a max force of 22Kn, then having two slings will distribute the loads between the two slings rather than increase the overall strength of the sling.

Isn't it like adding a teaspoon of sugar into your coffee? even if you add more or less coffee you still have the same amount of sugar -unless you start to drink it and then add more coffee...

BomberPro have you got a Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde complex? You swing wildly between being amicable and being down-right obnoxious. Here you are calling everyone stupid and slow again! You're being abit hypocritical when you choose to quote from TV shows such as Ugly Betty.
