Watch out for the 7 ways to achieve transhumanism

Transhumanism is a insidious philosophy that many people are simply unaware of.  It is time to become aware.  Transhumanism seeks not just to cure disease but to change the nature of man.  To make him more than human with whatever means are available, whether it is with nanotechnology, artificial limbs, artificial intelligence, or genetic enhancement.  Transhumanists have societies and magazines and conferences. They even argue that the writings of a Jesuit priest will convince Christians of their cause.  It seems like benign science fiction, but transhumansim is far from it.  It rejects the nature of humanity the fundamental principles that have governed society for thousands of years.  Transhumanists envision a world where man is a master of technology and wields it to his advantage.  They do not realize that what they advocate will do the exact opposite.   It will make man a slave to the technology he creates.

If the bill is adopted by the state Assembly and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, California would become the first state to require the teaching of gay history.
