Merging with a machine, becoming immortal. Sounds very interesting. What if we could be immortal without machines?

Okay I'm going to play devils advocate here because so far almost every person on here has simply condemmed science and transhumnism without any real reason other than that they believe that it's wrong so therefore it must be. Now I realise that it's strange and a little intimidating and insulting to be told that in 40 years technology will have fully outstripped human biology and quit honestly I think Kurzweil is wrong, the human body is a marvel of biology and the human brain still lies well outside the understanding of modern science, but at its core Transhumanism looks… Read more »

What a joke. Tech only moves forward where when there is some one willing to buy it. This guy is a hack and he will be forgotten in history. HUMANS and tech will NEVER work together. NEVER.

Tech is only a supplement and biology has a lovely habit of attacking and expelling foreign objects. This man is part of a dream of the elite to create an army of slaves that do not need to eat drink sleep or get paid any $. He will fail just like the elite.

A lot of you need to stop spreading ignorance. First off, just because you took a biology class doesn’t mean you understand what is compatible or not and why with the human body. We have hip replacements that last decades in the body with no rejection problems what so ever and yes we already have computer chips that merge as well [get to that in a second]. And just because you know the brain is complex and you don’t understand it does not mean that others who have devoted their lives to understanding the central nervous system and the architecture… Read more »

Yall dont get my point, AND anyone opposed to transhumanism is just a big hypocrite and sorry to say imbecile. Okay, you want to ban mechanical body parts? Why not pull out the prosthetic limbs on disabled people or ban the Para-Olympics? Or handle radio-active material with your bare hands instead of using a remote controlled robot. Or next time you in hospital, refuse to be hooked up to life supporting machines Or if you have trouble with seeing and hearing dont use contacts, glasses or hearing aids Or if you have crooked teeth dont use braces. All of you… Read more »

That's different. Transhumanism refers to people being genetically merged with machines, right? Not having prosthetics added so that you can walk properly, because there's no computer in a prosthetic. Or using a robot that isn't attached to you in any way to handle hazardous materials.

I for one will fight tooth and nail to keep from having computers added to me. I'd much rather just get another piercing or something. XD

RAY KURZWEIL has two big rings on his hand during this interview. Can anyone make out if there are any significant symbols on them?

What if we all have this technology in our bodies and someone hacks into your mind? This site talks about mind control, that’s some serious mind control there!

heyy i knw u are at confuse now but first let me say firstly we must all recognize that we are sinners. no one at all was born righteous no one . and this is stated in romans 3: 10.So even though u may not have cheat with your wife it doesnt mean anything cause u are still a sinner.

I'm not going to sit here and say I want to be a machine, but being the type of person to sit and watch other people, I can safely say that the generation I'm unfortunately a part of is too stupid to be able to do basic math, let alone the type of things some computers can do. Scientists, mechanics, engineers, and the like are the ones creating the robots, so yes, they are about as smart (if not more so) than the robots they make, but the average teen (and a lot of adults) would be severly outmatched by… Read more »

Your cell phone doesn't make you smarter, it's just convenient; if anything it makes you more lazy. And…"We NEED to merge with our machines"…wtf is that shit? Who let these dimebags on tv?

They say in the clip that technology is moving so fast that in 40 years our intelligence will not be able to keep up with the technology. Correct me if im wrong but is it not our intelligence that is creating this technology. It's as their looking down at the masses telling us to our face that technology (im guessing robots) will be so advanced in 40 years that humans will need to be "upgraded" somehow because there intelligence will not compete. Again if technology is a product of the human brain and our intelligence than how can the created… Read more »

Here is my take on “transhumanism” crap; subjects like this have to be talked about so that the folks who come up with it can see how we “sheep” might take it. Let us not forget 2 things. One, you did not create yourself nor your dna. Two God is in control of everything. You know I read something that reminded me that God is in control. A satanist said why would I choose God for protection, when the people that really do believe in him worry, fret, run and hide. If their God is so great why do they… Read more »

this article is about transhumanism and i am not trying to argue religous beliefs but why is it that christians like you that are so sure about jesus need to write full pages self assuring your self about your own beleifs. im so tired of reading these religous rants, its always the same spiel, the "theres only one way to heaven through jesus christ" bullshit. i dont think this is a christian forum board so please save your preaching for the choir. i rarely if ever see a jewish, buddhist, catholic, muslim, protestant, mormon, or any other type of religous… Read more »

I know this stuff sounds like crap, but do you remember the sheep that they were able to successfully clone. They are putting tons of money into the research of genes and DNA. Just that cloned sheep alone is an abomination to him. And when you say God has control of everything, that's not entirely accurate. He also allows his children to have free will. That's a big part of why bad things happen in the world today. Otherwise, he would stop genocide, poverty, and other injustices. And he does have things predetermined, but he won't stop all the evils… Read more »

I'm not saying I have a "gift" per se of future happenings…but I have had a few strange occurrences in my life (which I know happens to many of us) that forced me to wake up. And they were so odd and disturbing that I cannot turn my back to them. And one involved this guy, Kurzweil, who seems to keep popping up in the news lately. Let's just say something weird happened to me, a feeling, and a knowing that made my blood run so cold as to keep me up all night…and this happened years ago. I became… Read more »

People becoming Cyborgs… that's considered normal?? You talk about powerful people influencing government policy and you're looked at like a crazy person… yea… cause humans becoming cyborgs are way more plausible. SMH

And the thing about is not everyone will be cyborg, only those who can afford it, prompting them to have to create a whole new pyramid scheme, with upgrades and all.

If they make me a cyborg, life won't be worth exsisting in.. All they want is cyborgs, because they are easier to control.

These things are not human and they need to be stopped.

I was flying on US airways the other day. The internatioanl inflight magazine had an intersting article with transhumanism theme. It was about an individual who had cochlear implants that were basically microcomputers to resonate the pulses to his brain to be interpretated as sound. He had no hairs left in his ears due to a disease in early adulthood. Where the article gets interesting is he desires to have further implants into his head like a black berry. To have the abillity to check facebook and see what his friends are doing withoug ever having to touch a computer.… Read more »

‎"Genes are out of date, we need to update them" Ray Kurzweil. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a more ridiculous statement. LMAO!!! Didn’t these outdated genes develop technology?

greymatter

He is retarted… Every biological and molecular scientist, and computer scientist still believes that biological computers and the biological human body, is still the best machine ever.

They only want cybernetic parts and robots so they can have control on how to produce and create them, and thus become gods.

It is one big god complex for these folks.

Check out the "one eyed" image used to promote the new movie called "The Singularity is Near" in which Ray Kurzweil describes the trans-human future:

Anyone who believes in a "singularity" obviously doesn't understand or is afraid of chaos theory.

Life performs better in chaos then in "illusionary order".

Freemasons are very interested in the chaos theory too..

I feel like the quality of these comments has diminished a little..

@Georges why did you group radical feminists and homosexuals in with transhumanists, freemasons, luciferians, magii, corporate elitists, terrorist muslims? I am wondering purely out of curiosity since I consider homosexuals and feminists to have much more of a positive nature than the latter mentioned.

hmmm
5 years 6 months ago

Yes i want to know that too…

Neither homosexuals nor feminists are the enemy here… nor are they an abomination to religion or society as we are mislead to believe.

The way these groups have been 'marketed' and 'controlled' to society has turned them into a joke and a blind weapon of the NWO order.

Please deal with the real enemies here… the bloggers here at least deserve that much respect.

My fav. was the clip of Ray Kurzweil's headstone "1948-Never". Sorry, but "it is appointed for every man to die once" (Hebrews 9:27).

Our "genes our outdated" comes from evolutionary philosophy. I can't help but wonder if the director changed his name to "Ptolemy"? "Transcendent Man" = alchemy = occult = Freemasonry. I just want to slap the arrogance out of him (not that that is a Christian thing to do)!

Some awesome movies/books that speak AGAINST this kind of garbage include "Surrogates" (w/ Bruce Willis), CS Lewis's sci-fi trilogy; "Out of the Silent Planet", "Perelandra", and "That Hideous Strength".

Lest we forget, this is the guy whose main hope in life is to clone his father and have him back. Never mind that cloning inevitably gives bad copies that don't turn out like the original, nor last anywhere as long (Dolly lived out half the normal sheep's lifespan, most clones who survive don't make it nearly that long).

Methinks Kurzweil lost his mind years ago.
