Super-Intelligence & Godless Eternal Life: Transhumanism’s Faithful Blindly Following Antichrist Scheme Into Dangerous, Dystopian Future
If the history of technological progress can be seen as humankind’s attempt to tame nature to better serve its needs, transhumanism is the logical continuation: the revision of humankind’s nature to better serve its fantasies. As David Pearce, a leading proponent of transhumanism and co-founder of Humanity+, says: “If we want to live in paradise, we will have to engineer it ourselves. If we want eternal life, then we’ll need to rewrite our bug-ridden genetic code and become god-like … only hi-tech solutions can ever eradicate suffering from the world. Compassion alone is not enough.” But there is a darker side to the naive faith that Pearce and other proponents have in transhumanism – one that is decidedly dystopian.
