Although I'm sure you probably know about all this, I'll forward you  
a couple of things I found yesterday. I only feel sorry (and somewhat  
disgusted) for (by) those too biased to even look at evidence and  
resort to insult.

I raised the issue in the WTA discussion list some time back (I'll  
forward you some emails) only to be quieted by a few people, and I  
decided not to push it, since the point of my original post was  
"freedom of thought" and not conspiracy per se.

Who cares what a hundred transhumanists think about the issue, anyway  
(although, probably a good number of people watching these lists stay  
quiet but doubt when they read this stuff).
