Oddly perhaps, but I'd say it's worse because philosophical differences aside, the whole article reads like a pro religious anti transhumanist slander fest.
I take it the web site is hosted in a country with no libel laws, since I couldn't see a mainstream newspaper getting away un-sued if it decided to post an anti christian rant written like this.
My apologies Natasha, perhaps I was a tad too hasty in my earlier brushing aside of your concerns about the words of the evil tongued Alex Jones and his ilk.
Is there such a thing as a well funded Transhumanist organization that could put Alex Jones on a courtroom stand and have him defend his slanderous anti-Transhumanist writing?
