[67] While international discussion of the converging technologies and NBIC concepts includes strong criticism of their transhumanist orientation and alleged science fictional character, [68] [69] [70] research on brain and body alteration technologies has accelerated under the sponsorship of the US Department of Defense, which is interested in the battlefield advantages they would provide to the " supersoldiers " of the United States and its allies.

We reject all religious, ideological, or moral codes that denigrate the individual, suppress freedom, dull intellect, dehumanize personality. [10] Humanists believe in maximum individual autonomy and self-direction, and view humankind as a god-like being with unlimited goodness and potential.

("The Origin of Life," Scientific American, 191:48, May 1954).

Mary's cloak looks as though it is real fabric flowing over her body and onto the floor. By this I mean the elective abortion/mandatory child support issue. To no one’s surprise, Irenaeus reads the scriptures Christologically […] Faith of Our Fathers: Irenaeus’s On the Apostolic Preaching (pt. 4) 4.
