Wesley J. Smith – Big Transhumanist Believes in Intelligent Design!

See on Scoop.itSociology of the Body

Transhumanism is a materialist religion that seeks to find transcendence and immortality through technology and the fashioning of a “post-human species.”

If transhumanists have a leader, Oxford professor Nick Bostrom is the guy.

Terry Hill‘s insight:

So let’s follow this guy and see where he leads us,  but keep an open mind on the way.
