COM PAN Y
On 13 October 2011 at 4pm eastern, Association member Giulio Prisco will speak on Transhumanism and Religion. Giulio's speech will be a revised and expanded version of the talk he gave on "The Cosmic Visions of the Turing Church" at the Transhumanism and Spirituality Conference 2010 (slides available at http://giulioprisco.blogspot.com). Giulio Prisco is a technology consultant, physicist, computer scientist, writer and futurist. He is a director of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies and the Associazione Italiana Transumanisti, and was executive director of
the World Transhumanist Association. A founder of the Turing Church, Prisco proposes transhumanist "cosmic visions" as alternatives to major religions. In his presentation, Giulio quotes Ray Kurzweil: “In my view, the primary issue is not the mass of the Universe, or the possible existence of antigravity, or of Einstein's socalled cosmological constant. Rather, the fate of the Universe is a decision yet to be made, one which we will intelligently consider when the time is right.” Giulio also writes: “Transhumanism is not a religion because it is based on science instead of supernatural beliefs. But it can replace religion by offering the same drive and hope.”
