Top 10 The Misconceptions About Transhumanism


This gave rise to the term 'Transhumanism' and still obviously a pity that this is causing much confusion. Pretending that they do not know one thing I always wanted to be more than the average person. Exceptional work and for living a life worth living. According to Nick Bostrom, Transhumanism is intended to overcome the limitations of human reasoning to an intellectual and cultural movement and implemented by developing technologies to enhance human intellectual, physical and psychological abilities. Therefore, a transhumanist efforts to bridge the gap between humanity and humanity Post




Recently, Kevin Warwick, cybernetics with a British professor and a rigid trans man, forecasts and Professor Tipu Aziz to use the power of brain implants through intelligent computer methods to prevent stroke, Oxford University neurosurgeon, of the involvement in the project is a collaborative project associated with Parkinson's syndrome. The Daily Mail have so far described the project as "the most important recent advances in genetic engineering".

10. It is a key factor to Dehumanization


It has been alleged that threats to humanity in the development of artificial intelligence. About Cyborg concept as the human genome improves cognitive functions, is strengthened and made various changes to get healthy bodies. The education system is the brain's ability to eliminate a growing reliance on the lack of development of critical thinking skills and calculators have checks spelling.

Misunderstanding has been ruled with ever so many ways to create a society where a second option to a computer to hold views different school transhumanism human mind has developed with other humans. Man intimate with other men, has undergone evolution in its replies to connect, and there is an alternative that you are aware that most humans. Although it may be possible to produce humanoids, it is impossible to create a morally justified answers to the evolution of the ability to choose a woman for the wedding!

9. It advocates for Eugenics


Eugenics is the practice of encouraging the mass of the people considered to possess desirable traits and try to make inferior improve the human gene pool by preventing them race with unwanted traits. Eugenics wars or world wars were explained by science fiction series Star Trek. It involved a series of scientific efforts to improve the human race through selective breeding and recombinant DNA technology known as Supermen come up with the "normal growth. The common man is twice augments, five times stronger and 50% had improved intelligence with lung performance. In the end, they were tremendous and uncontrollable and dominate their 'creators' and earth killing. It was derived from a misunderstanding of the series, but critics speculate Transhumanism could begin to rise in the future.

8. It trivializes the human identity


Francis Fukuyama and Leon diameter, critics Practice enhance human undermine human dignity and it is claimed that erodes human equality as a human mind and body modification and human supernormal abilities. It is also one of the transhumanists good or bad it is, may take it upon themselves to determine that argument.

Transhumanism as to form a small part of what is possible in the range of accessible activities for the secular roots of human thinking and ideas, feelings, experiences and humans, however, is apocryphal. Evolutionary biology since it suggests that there may be no specific human essence since the human gene pool is fixed by Nick Bostrom is concerned the poor Fukuyama argues.

7. It is an Existential risk


Existential risks are global, terminal risks are classified as. A good example is to only mention a few of the risk they are moderate global warming, economic recessions and threats to biodiversity of the ecosphere. Therefore, a good start to the appreciation that these negative results either destroy intelligent life or permanently risks imperiling its potential therefore will be able to paralyze human beings. Critics have brainwashed the public continued military growth evils of nuclear weapons. He speculated that it could lead to the creation of consistent, it may very well be fatal to the thirst for power among nations with sophisticated weaponry end of World War III.A humanity.

However, it will never happen since sophisticated authentication technologies have been developed to rogue nations with nuclear weapons detect any illegal activity. He comes to GPS navigation in major centers by inspectors light involves the use of communications technology. This is because nuclear weapons are timed and are inspected.

6. It aims at Contempt for the flesh (fountain of youth Misconception)


Trans people wish to drink from the fountain of youth forever, was greeted with criticism. , Intellectuals, the concept of a youth levels mimicking a young person's hormones have a very dangerous proposition that argument, and it's driving people to the end of 'cosmetic sweet. " It is deadly chemicals such as Botox injections may be due to a small flock of deadly food poisoning. People, especially women, it has little to do with health complications either break or end the threat
However, this is not the case as per professional physicians, since they have defended this emerging trend by insisting that the complications and problems occur only in patients who are not maintained within physiologic levels and once injected they need to be complimented with diet and exercise. Ideally, no drug works best without a good diet and some fitness.

5. It is Infeasible (future hype misconception)


It is argued that transhumanists are wrong about how fast technology development and believes it will happen in the near future. The Ultimate Book of Dublin, the Hype: The Tyranny of Prophecy, the movement is full of scientism, fanaticism, and nihilism in the development of the cause. Beyond the reach of advances in medical science and looked dreamy.

However, while radically change advocated by the exponential increase in the technical capabilities of humanity stands a good chance in the future to predict the pace of innovation. Many will travel to the moon and nuclear power among the seemingly implausible predictions of early science fiction writers, have come to pass. Google is to search for feasibility in transhumanist ideas that seems Calico as he created his company to come up with a solution to the age!

4. It poses a threat to morality and democracy


Critics have speculated that the trans-winning humanity what they want, we will be a society of lazy humans. Our ethical moral fiber, half human, half machine will be reduced by a wave of 'things'. In general terms, one would be a creature of fiction as well as a creature of social reality. So bring an end to the moral equation.

It is also argued that only the nobility who would probably be able to rule on a full tech devices will not be tolerant of poor people with bionic arms or eyes. In Cyborg 'rich on it will use human beings as slaves and their rules may not be human-friendly and come with the results of a rapture of endless war.

However, speculation continues to co-exist in a harmonious relationship with each and every command bow the latter to the former as humans and machines, there is a lack of solid facts. Basically, the purpose of installing the robot moral ethics transhumanists in compliance with the international rules.

3. Transhumanism will lead to a Genetic divide


He suggested that the ratio will be accessible to those with an outstanding group of emerging human resources improvement technologies liberal critics of the Bill McKibben. Therefore, Lacuna between rich and poor will be aggravated leading to the creation of a 'genetic divide.

However, these ideas were 'to describe a dystopian society is totally dependent on a class of genetic modifications in 1997. The film is not based on a real-life evidence as Gattaca.

2. Hubris (playing God misconception)


Transhumanism does not play God, but God views humans to set things right for the benefit of humanity. In addition, Joseph H Taylor clearly says is the same as a scientific discovery than a religious question, and there is no conflict between science and religion. Made about the knowledge of God is made larger with every discovery. Albert Einstein described God as a divine intelligence. Lord of all creation and the natural law. What did Einstein mean no one can be equal to God. It, therefore, is always careful to praise God for forgiveness without blaming it on the evolutionary transition guy, a super mind of man. A scientist came up with the technology to create an artificial arm for those without much just because, it does not mean that he is God. This is just pure genius!

1. It is irrelevant


After it has been argued Transhumanism is the idea of ​​pursuing science and technology to improve the human condition, we need to pursue will change to improve the technology or the human condition is to tell us it was not because we need a movement advocating since the beginning of civilization transhumanists. This is a waste of time and resources!

Movement, however, that it is to change and improve human nature that transcends related. Technological Using the exteriors of the views of women, sometimes superficial (at a glance, the appropriate effectiveness from a distance) with the means to young exteriors make them again is helping Western women do. It is socially unacceptable is the project's success that a slur or insult, as it looks as they age to tell a woman that she is, in fact, more than thirty!

Movement that has come with the latest technology to ensure that through our soldiers introduction are not susceptible to enemy attacks in Iraq, Somalia and other conflict zones, super soldiers, and perhaps drink a day Fountain of Youth I will!
