In need of a religion atheists?

Transhumanism is an atheist religion. They are materialists who believe science will figure out how to cure death, and computers will become more intelligent that humans.

Google has invested billions in cure for death research. Transhumanism could be the religion of the progressive elites who are working on forming a global government. Run by them, of course. The rest of us are too stupid to understand any of it.

There are very few obstacles remaining before transhumanism succeeds in its mission to free rich humans from death, and to create super-intelligent computers:

1. Science still doesn't know what life is.
2. Science still doesn't know how the brain works.
3. Science still doesn't understand most DNA.
4. Science is no closer to curing cancer than it was decades ago.
5. The causes of most age-related diseases are still unknown.

Well, um, there are some more obstacles, but those are the main ones. Science will overcome those obstacles any day (year, decade, century) now. Just hold your breath. Keep believin' brother, amen.

Atheists don't need religions.

Yes it does.

2. Science still doesn't know how the brain works.

Working on it. And so what?

3. Science still doesn't understand most DNA.

You have no clue. Also being worked on.

4. Science is no closer to curing cancer than it was decades ago.

Why do you make up plainly wrong stuff? New cures for different cancers are coming along all the time.

5. The causes of most age-related diseases are still unknown.

Generally age is the cause for those. Age as a disease is being worked on.

Well, um, there are some more obstacles, but those are the main ones. Science will overcome those obstacles any day (year, decade, century) now. Just hold your breath. Keep believin' brother, amen.

Your point is what?

That we should all abandon any idea of progress because some person who claims (well, lies about being) to be a Doctor of cognitice science has trouble with the modern world?

Yes, the Soros funded conspiracy of global atheist elites is out to make us all into lazy marxist socialists who don't work and demand free stuff, which billionaires like Soros will happily provide. Or something like that. Makes perfect (non)sense.

I think "Beliefs and Skepticism" needs a CT sub-forum.

Here, something new to ponder:

Congrats.

Your threads have sunk to the level of stupidity that have typically been the private domain of Angel.

You two are peas in a pod.


:roll:
And your nasty personal posts continue at their same level. "Cngrats," however, just doesn't seen the right word in your case.

"Transhumanism" is an olla podrida of popular myths, urban legends, scientism and pseudo-ethics. It is held chiefly by persons unacquainted with the humanities and incapable of broad critical thought.

Age is not a disease!

And the diseases the are supposedly inevitable with age are mostly diseases of industrial societies, caused at least partly by artificial food and lack of exercise.

That's a lie.

https://www.oncologica.com/dynamic-...Zv4AqWEBKG1fOPGe0V6uG2eycSlHaTKYaArkCEALw_wcB

Since 2015 Oncologica lab offers to the wide public at an accessible cost Oncofocus DNA Cancer test; the world’s most comprehensive precision oncology test that precisely identifies the right drug for every patient’s cancer thereby increasing chances of a successful treatment.

Which bit of that is a lie?

Currently, there’s no true cure for cancer. But recent advances in medicine and technology are helping move us closer than ever to a cure.

It is getting to be very popular in certain subcultures. Silicon valley for example.

What planet do you live on?

Here on Earth we generally have a total lack of function of some or more often several important organs by the time we get to 90.

Most cancer treatments try to extend life for a year or two, while making patients very sick. That is not a cure. They don't even try to restore health.

Most cancer cannot be cured, except childhood leukemia for example.

Early localized cancer is often cured by surgery. But most of the time, those cancers would have remained local and controlled by the immune system.

Of course a company that sells cancer treatments will make it look wonderful.

No, it is actually the truth. The percentage of people who go into remission and live longer than 5 years has drastically increased over the last 20 years. Such biogenics as Gleevec has played a strong roll in that.

Your information is 25 years out of date. Medical technology has moved on.

My leukaemia has been cured. A friend of mine's prostate cancer has been cured. The wife of the singer in our band has recovered from breast cancer. Out of date indeed. She is explaining cancer in the same way that she "explains" the concious universe.

Don’t know when science will over come those obstacles - but I do know it will be before Jesus gets back.

Well, a computer certainly would never write a clause like that in bold above.
