Presented at Transhumanism and Spirituality 2010, held 1 October 2010, 9:00am to 5:00pm MDT at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Marriott Library, Gould Auditorium.
Abstract: As we move further into the 21st century humanity has within reach the ability to alter the body human to such an extent as to give rise to a new post-human species. What is less clear is whether our ethical, moral and spiritual development can keep pace with our technological prowess. This paper will take the position that our faith communities are in a unique position to speak up for the need to hold both God and science together in our lives, to check human hubris and offset individual motives in exchange for ethical standards that support social justice.
