I agree. 

Btw: have you developed your idea of a transhuman religion
any? I'd be particularly interested in seeing how the legal 
aspects of founding it would work if you tried to found it
in some particular state within the US such as perhaps the
one where you currently live or plan to settle. If you want
to check out the legal aspect of that I'd be happy take a
look at it with you as a way of learning how a religion is 
established and dealt with by the current law of the US,

Don't wait to long though or I'll have to rescind the offer,
and this offer from me, isn't open to everyone, it is specific
to you. (ie. You'd have to make the running on it though just
like the Avantguardian wrote his essay, and so its *his* essay).

I *think* the exercise at looking at how religion fits into the
legal structure in the US might be of interest to others on
this list.
