Humans aren’t just natural tool-users, but also activists and theologians. 

Whether we are born in a religious, spiritual, or secular family, understanding god, infinity, or the nature of reality arises from a desire to make sense of life, including our individuality.

 

This drive for understanding has lead humans to invent highly sophisticated tools.

Why Transhumanism Is Not A Religion

By Jessica Lombard

"We should not believe that transhumanism replaces religion because analogies can be made. The idea of the maker as the divine and the pitfall that comes from this hubris is a commonplace of artistic creation, for instance, and it is only logical that transhumanism is to be accused of those same eccentricities."

- Lombard

Universal Physical and Moral Laws, With No Lawgiver

Gennady Stolyarov II

"Neither morality nor gravitation require the existence of entities outside of those exhibiting moral behavior or gravitational attraction. A system of physical or moral laws is not dependent on an outside “lawgiver” but rather on the objective natures of the entities partaking in the system."

 

- Stolyarov II 

Limits to Religion

by Theolfilos Chaldezos

"People may start to question religious teachings when they learn and read sacred texts—formed by a misconception about the world caused by our limited senses (combined with ignorance)."

"Theologians would be able to investigate how seeding an early civilization with a message from the designers could influence ethical and moral development thousands of years later." Yampolskiy

"Artificial Intelligence researchers could test their creations in realistic and diverse environments to see how capable they are while making sure that the intelligence they create is safe and beneficial. " Yampolskiy

Can Philosophy Lead to a Renewed Sense of Environmental Stewardship?

A Conversation With

Philosopher David Ray Griffin

By Tam Hunt 

 "I was inspired by [Whitehead's] efforts to develop a philosophy that would (a) handle experiences of all types and that would (b) provide explanations of various phenomena, such as the mind-body relation, which is both adequate to the facts and self-consistent."

 

- Griffin
