Sharon and I were honored to participate with Wesley J. Smith of the Discovery Institute and National Review Online in the Q & A session after this screening tonight via Google Hangout. People of faith can see where the transhuman techno-crusade leads — it’s a twisted theology that completely buys into the oldest lie in the Book (“ye shall be as gods”).
But as Wesley pointed out, if we frame the debate in theological terms, we lose. Most people will tune out any argument based on religion because they won’t be able to see past those differences. This is too important an issue to let it derail over the premise.
The bottom line is this: transhumanism is eugenics with a sci-fi veneer. Think Hitler with gene-splicing capability and you get the idea.
