The quest for immortality is as old as human existence, but has taken on a modern form in Transhumanism that is just as superstitious and silly as the Pharaohs in ancient Egypt. It will just as certainly fail in the end.
Transhumanism is a religious belief system based on the hope that somehow science will provide the holy grail. The fact is, science has not advanced one centimeter toward immortality in all of history.
Since the Transhuman community heated up in the last 30 years, thanks to advancing technology, there has not been one single scientific breakthrough that has moved them one inch closer to achieving immortality. Undeterred, they continue to look for the big ‘breakthrough’ that will save them from death.
Technocrat scientists believe that humans are just like any other animal which are products of random evolution. Therefore, they fully expect to be able to use science to find the human soul. As atheists, they do not believe man was created by God with body, soul and spirit.
With China completely given over to Technocrat thought, there is no moral or ethical barrier to human cloning, and they have bluntly stated that this is their intent. This will please the transhuman community around the world.
This is further development of President Obama’s multibillion-dollar brain-map initiative started in 2013. Just as human DNA was ‘mapped’, the BRAIN project was to probe the human brain in action and figure out exactly how it works. Driving forces behind this included Transhumanists who seek immortality through science.
Technocrat engineers are obsessed with Transhumanism and conquering immortality, but this ‘breakthrough’ is little more than a technology parlor trick to imitate life after death. Before technology, we had puppets with strings, and this is no different except that it is much more realistic.
Transhumanist Ray Kurzweil of Google and North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un have two things in common: they both want to conquer immortality and bring their fathers back to life. Moreover, North Korea has been experimenting with human cloning for at least 10 years already. With zero ethical restraints, these Technocrat scientists are free to do anything their minds can conceive.
Research ‘breakthroughs’ are arriving at an increasing frequency as scientists peel back the genesis of life. Technocrat scientists have little concern with the legal or ethical implications of their research, and will push the envelope until it bursts apart. It is a Transhuman dream to re-engineer humanity altogether.
The transhuman fantasy of downloading their brains into a computer network persists no matter what evidence to the contrary is presented. Although Ray Kurzweil was the first high-profile technologist to popularize this, many other scientists have since jumped on the bandwagon. Transhumanism and Technocracy are the twin creations of Scientism.
