    What if we never died?
    Sunday, August 20, 2006
    I was just thinking, what would it be like if we didn't die? What would theists say about, the meaning of life, punishments for our sins, existance of souls, etc? What would theists say if we discover the genes responsible for aging and be able to change them so that death by aging would be a thing of a past? Would they challenge the role of god in death? Would there even be a theist?
    Imagine if we insert some gene into a chimp and be able to increase their intellect so that they can read, write and calculate complex mathematical question (which many theist themselves may not be able to do). Would theist accept that we are not that special but lucky that some of our ancester's genes related to brain growth mutated? Would they still refute evolution? Would they say the chimp has a soul now? How would it change our human identity?
    I usually think alot about how to fight religious dogma but maybe this fight is not as hopeless as it seems. Maybe science has the answer.

      Bonobos and other great apes have shown remarkable similarities to humans, but Fundies either ignore them or spin the similarities.
      If man didn't die, man wouldn't have to invent God or heaven in the first place. Of course, you are talking completely hypothetical, because eventually the universe will not be able to support life regardless of any biological breakthrough, so no matter what, man will always have the need for everlasting life eternal.

      AJ - exactly. Humans are constantly looking for a way to live forever whether by magical thinking or futile scientific endeavor. Science can make our lives longer and better...but nothing lasts forever. Xians and other gawd believers say that this gawd made everything...but what a lousy creator he is then! Not one thing in the universe, nor the universe itself will last.

      I have often wondered how the world would change if humans never died, though I've never taken the time to do a thorough thought experiment on it. Thanks for the reminder. :)

      Be happy Roya, we are actually very close to the end of these discussions. Computer intelligence is really just around the corner and there is a lot of reason to be confident that a complete understanding of the human brain is something you will live to see. Immortality is actually pretty likely for you too, if you choose it. The theists are right when they whine on that the end is near - it's just that it is the end of theism and not the end of us, or them.

      On another note I'd like to invite you to take a look at this and take up the habbit if it appeals to you. =)
