Transhumanism lecture

  1. 1. With vaccines and medicines and technology being used to sustain life, how far is too far? At some point, it is said, that we will reach a point where humanity as we know it ceases and a new race takes over.A theomorphic (God-like qualities) race will arise and takeover. The question is where is that line between human and posthuman drawn? In light of the coming singularity and the age of transhumanism, what does it mean to be human? What does this mean for our Christian faith and salvation?
  2. 2. PHYSICAL There is a Physical component of health and vitality.
  3. 3. EMOTIONAL The Emotional component is important because it is the lens through which humanity experiences life.
  4. 4. INTELLECTUAL The Intellectual component is the worldview and thought process that guides each person
  5. 5. TRANSCENDANT The Transcendent component is the belief system that each person adheres to.
  6. 6. SOCIAL The Social component is the way by which humans interact witheach other and the world around them. Each component affects other components. If a human is ill(physical), there is a thought (intellectual) process that adapts theirbehaviors (social). That behavioral (social) change will have anemotional response that will affect what the person believes(transcendent).
  7. 7. SOCIAL CLASS However, with the changes that would take place because in thetranshumanism state, life would extend further and further. This willthrow off how our society works and cause problems, as we mustlearn a new way to transition our culture so that everyone has a stronglivelihood.
  8. 8. IMAGO DEI “Then God said, „Let us make man in our image, in our likeness,and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, overthe livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that movealong the ground.‟ So God created man in His own image, in theimage of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
  9. 9. D O T R A N S / P O S T H U M A N S H AV E T H E I M AG O D E I W I T H I N T H E M ? When it comes to posthumans, this would be rather debatable becauseposthumans are not human, they are created, fully evolved- i.e. a wholenew race. In this case, they would not fall under the umbrella of creationso it is unsure whether or not they would have the spirit being. Do all things that “live” have a spirit within them? Which then wouldlead us to ask: What qualifies as living? Because posthumans will be so in-sync with technology that there is no separation between the “being” andthe “machine.
  10. 10. D O T R A N S / P O S T H U M A N S H AV E T H E I M AG O D E I W I T H I N T H E M ? Functional view may be able to see that the Imago Dei is inposthumans and transhuman because the Imago Dei has to do withdominance over the rest of creation. Posthumans and transhumanswould definitely have dominion
  11. 11. CAN THEY BE SAVED? Another orthodox position that is held is that the Traducianismposition that states that the soul matter was instilled in Adam and Eveand each new person receives a part of the soul matter. This maycreate a problem when it comes to posthumans because they arecreated, evolved beings in a new race that has very little to do withhumanity. One more view is that God until needed by new human lifestores the souls.
