H+ Magazine today published a second interview with Lincoln Cannon, president of the Mormon Transhumanist Association. In this second interview, Lincoln explains why he considers Mormonism to be the most Transhumanist among major world religions. He also addresses questions about scriptural interpretation, parallels with other religions, and the problem of evil.
In the first interview, Lincoln shared thoughts on parallels between Mormonism and Transhumanism, including Mormon views of the afterlife, immortality and contemporary ethical issues raised by emerging technology. He also discussed Mormons in science and technology, passages of the Book of Mormon with Transhumanist themes, and hopes related to a Mormon futuristic transhuman utopia.
