Transhumanists put their faith in technology

Abstract:
Humanity is on its way out. Post-humanity - technologically enhanced and perhaps even immortal - is coming.
The stuff of science fiction is creed to transhumanists, a diverse group of technological optimists who advocate the transformation of Homo sapiens into a new species, one "better than human." Transhumanists see our era of rapid technological advance as the transitional phase between our human past and post-human future.
