Certainly it would, and anyway would make for a more interesting world
even though such goal were to prove elusive... :-)

Ultimately, if christians prefer to live in a christian society while
waiting for, and as a second best to, paradise, I am increasingly
persuaded that a societal egemony of transhumanist value, besides
being obviously more likely to deliver than alleged and dubious
automagic mechanisms, is something worth fighting for per se.
