Mormon Transhumanist Association to Present at Sunstone Symposium

The Mormon Transhumanist Association will present at the Sunstone Symposium in Salt Lake City on Friday 10 August 2007 at 10AM in the Salt Lake Sheraton City Centre Hotel.

Panel PRACTICAL FAITH IN PROPHETIC VISION

Abstract

Mormon scripture and tradition present to us diverse prophetic visions of transfiguration, immortality, resurrection, renewal of this world, and the discovery and creation of worlds without end. Mormon Transhumanists believe that science and technology will contribute toward fulfillment of these prophecies, perhaps much sooner than commonly expected. In this session, panelists will explain why they are members of the Mormon Transhumanist Association and how they view the near future.
