The end of religion-Could New Discoveries upend religion

Singularity is just around the corner; experts state that within 25 years or less, computers will be smarter than machines.  The law of the jungle states that only the fittest will survive, so if humans are going to survive they will have to undergo upgrades such as memory enhancements, adding more neurones or improving neurone connectivity, etc

“Within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence,” he wrote. “Shortly after the human era will be ended,” Vinge claims that singularity will be as dramatic a change to the planet as the rise of humanity once was, and that these changes will happen at a rate with which humanity will struggle to cope.

“From the human point of view this change will be a throwing away of all the previous rules, perhaps in the blink of an eye, an exponential runaway beyond any hope of control. Developments that before were thought might only happen in ‘a million years’ (if ever) will likely happen in the next century,” Vinge wrote.

Human life extension is near 

In September 2013 Google announced the creation of Calico, short for the California Life Company. Its mission is to reverse engineer the biology that controls lifespan and “devise interventions that enable people to lead longer and healthier lives”. Though much mystery surrounds the new biotech company, it seems to be looking in part to develop age-defying drugs. In April 2014 it recruited Cynthia Kenyon, a scientist acclaimed for work that included genetically engineering roundworms to live up to six times longer than normal, and who has spoken of dreaming of applying her discoveries to people. “Calico has the money to do almost anything it wants,” says Tom Johnson, an earlier pioneer of the field now at the University of Colorado who was the first to find a genetic effect on longevity in a wormFull Story

PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel created Breakout Labs to fund scientists and start-ups that include some working on achieving immortality, and he invested $3.5 million in the Methuselah Foundation, co-founded by Aubrey de Grey, the biomedical gerontologist whose Strategies of Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS) treats aging as an engineering problem to be solved at the cellular level by reprogramming cells to stop aging. A tireless promoter of the belief that our generation will be the first to achieve immortality—or at least to live indefinitely—de Grey is on record claiming that the first human to live 1,000 years is alive today. If you’ve seen any television show or documentary film on aging, you’ve seen the inimitable Aubrey de Grey, with his waist-length ponytail and Methuselahlike beard and baritone British accent. I’ve met Aubrey and shared a beer or two with him (if there is a fountain of youth in de Grey’s world, it bubbles with beer) as he leaned in to bend my ear on the latest shields against the grim reaper’s scythe. Full Story

Conclusion

Now the colossal picture that almost everyone is missing- by everyone we mean 99% of the populace, is that singularity could lead to the end of religion. There is a small trend in play, and it will gather momentum in the years to come; that trend is called the end of religion.  There are treatments in labs that can already extend life and cure many diseases but are purposely being held back. When individuals find out that death can be defied, they will slowly but surely walk away from religion. Most of today’s Catholics and Christians are just Catholics and Christians in name; as more people get a taste freedom and the prospects of earning a decent income increase so do their religious views.  We are not going to delve much into this but technology that can enhance humans and extend their lives will soon pave the way for many to abandon their religious views. We are not trying to offend anyone; we are just speaking of developing trends.
