The terrifying DNA discoveries that are making science-fiction fact

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, transhumanism

Imagine a world where parents can give birth to superbabies with bones so strong they’re impervious to a surgical drill and a heart less prone to failure. A world where a child has DNA from three parents, not two. A world where it’s possible for a woman to have her favorite movie star’s child simply by collecting a few of his skin cells. Genetic technology is making it all a reality, horrifying some and heartening others.

Reproductive advances are arriving so rapidly, we’ve already entered the realm of science-fiction and are on the verge of making truly astounding leaps.

For more, look to the new book “The Gene Machine: How Genetic Technologies Are Changing the Way We Have Kids — and the Kids We Have” by Bonnie Rochman.

Who wants to live forever? Transhumanism’s promise of eternal life

Posted by in categories: life extension, robotics/AI, transhumanism

A nice long feature on #transhumanism in The Irish Times, one of Ireland’s largest papers. It focuses on the book To Be A Machine: http://www.irishtimes.com/culture/books/who-wants-to-live-fo…-1.3010223 Separately, The New York Times ran a rather somber view of a few transhumanism books, two of the books (The Body Builders & To Be a Machine) which I’m quoted in: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/16/books/review/gene-machine.…html?_r=0


Mark O’Connell has spent several years talking to people who want to live through robots and technology, and he admits it stems from his own obsession with death.

Posted by in categories: engineering, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI, singularity, transhumanism

3 Christian articles/sites w/ #transhumanism in it: http://www.christianpost.com/news/google-directors-hope-for-…in-177809/ & http://straightoutthegate.com/tech-savings-gate/zoltan-istva…has-to-go/ & https://blogs.lcms.org/2017/storming-gates-paradise


Google’s director of engineering is saying implanting computers “inside our brains” is upon us, words theologians and Christian bioethicists consider a “slap in the face” to Christ and would result in horrific human rights violations.

According to the Daily Mail, Ray Kurzweil, a futurist who works on Google’s machine learning project, said at the South by Southwest conference taking place this week in Austin, Texas, that by the year 2029, technological “singularity” will be achieved, the complete merging of human and computer intelligence.

Should death be treated as a disease?

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, transhumanism

My new 10-min interview on one of Ireland’s largest talk shows (120,000 listeners). Some of the questions are tough to answer as I strive to protect those in hardship, promote equality, and still remain true to my #libertarian values. Lots of core #transhumanism in this interview.


Zoltan Istvan is a transhumanist who is running for Governor of California. He spoke to Sean about his beliefs that centre around technology and science helping humans.

Show: Moncrieff
