Lincoln Cannon   May 9, 2013   Adam Ford  

Lincoln Cannon, an IEET contributor, has over fifteen years of professional experience as a software engineer, Internet marketer, information technologist, and leader of technical teams in development and integration of web, mobile and management information systems. He holds degrees in business administration and philosophy. These videos present an interesting perspective from the Mormon point of view on transhumanism. Adam Ford, arguably the best video-interviewer on futurism asks Lincoln what Mormonism has got to do with transhumanism.





If religion were to be defined as heuristic, would have no problem with 'it'; even the more spacey aspects This from Isaiah 30:21,

"And your ears will hear a word behind you, 'this is the way, walk in it,' whenever you turn to the right or to the left."

Smething to it. After all we don't run our lives scientifically.. we are not Spocks, Data, R2D2. We don't shop for food at markets thinking "1.38826 gms. of fat in this brand..."
So religion is as good for constructionism as Marxism, etc. If such isn't to damn with faint praise...
