I am a bit confused what the transhumanist groups are being rallied 
for.  The "culture wars" are a bit amorphous and over used.  What sort 
of real difference do you see transhumanism standing for and in what 
context?  How exactly do we find a place of traction to delive 
effective messages relative to the "culture wars"?  What does this have 
to do with the new Pope?
