EP 30 – Transhumanism, Christianity, Tech and Science

Let’s make mortality optional – is this good for Christians to support or not?

 

The Wikipedia on Transhumanism is, “an international and intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.[1][2] Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations, as well as the ethics[3] of using such technologies.[4] The most common transhumanist thesis is that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into different beings with abilities so greatly expanded from the natural condition as to merit the label of posthuman beings.”

 

We discuss if this is an anti-Christian movement or if Christians can work alongside transhumanists to potentially live forever via science and tech.
