All Singularitarians are Trans-humanists but not all Trans-humanists are Singularitarians, I disagree with Max in that I don't think the distinction is important in the point that Lanier was trying (unsuccessfully) to make, that such ideas are religious. It's well know that people with Trans-humanists ideas don't tend to be great fans of religion, so when they want to get our goat they call us religious. It get's old.
