If you’re like most people, you may associate the phrase “eternal life” with religion: The promise that we can live forever if we just believe in God. You probably don’t associate the phrase with an image of scientists working in a lab, peering at worms through microscopes or mice skittering through boxes. But you should. The quest for eternal life has only recently begun to step out from behind the pews and into the petri dish […] From a secular perspective, the choice seems obvious. But from a religious perspective, weighing faith and science is not as clear. It’s not even clear whether a choice must be made. If you’re Mormon, for example, you believe that humans should and will become Gods themselves, a view consistent with transhumanist ambitions to take human capabilities and nature into their own hands.
