PLEASE DISTRIBUTE FAR & WIDE -- REPOST, EMAIL, PRINT AND SHARE IMPORTANT OPEN LETTER FROM TOM HORN TO CHRISTIAN LEADERS

Dear Pastor and Christian Leader, time is running out for you to influence the debate on transhumanism.

THE ISSUE

In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of humanity toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very near future to redefine what it means to be human. An international, intellectual, and fast-growing cultural movement known as transhumanism, whose vision is supported by a growing list of U.S. military advisors, bioethicists, law professors, and academics, intends the use of biotechnology, genetic engineering, nanotechnology, cybernetics, and artificial intelligence as tools that will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps— as Joel Garreau, in his bestselling book Radical Evolution, claims—our very souls. The technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now underway unapologetically forecasts a future dominated by this new species of unrecognizably superior humans, and applications under study now to make this dream a reality are being funded by thousands of government and private research facilities around the world. The issues raised by human-transforming science must be addressed by Christian leaders in a serious national conversation. To fail this responsibility will be to abdicate the question "what does it mean to be human" to developing transhuman definition.

  1. to a world still coming to terms with the internet - many people where i live still do not have a computer - I fail to see how these advancements will be accepted.How are they going to do this as most people would find this abhorrent!

  2. With respect to Mrs. Mackenzie's comment, I submit the following:

    If the government bowed to the will of the general populace, your argument would have more merit. Unfortunately, the silent majority is just that - silent... and powerless to stop the ruling elite in the world from carrying out their plans. The fact that most people would find these things abhorrent in no way deters them, for they have removed the power of the people to make their voices heard, much less regarded. It is sad, but those who do not have the technology to even use the internet have already been marginalized as players. And even most of those who do have it are only able to read what is done after the fact. But if we share our knowledge of what is happening in the scientific/political world arena with others, then at least a grass-roots awareness can be established. If we do nothing, then we gain nothing.
