Carl Youngblood, director and chief information officer of the Mormon Transhumanist Association, will present to the London Futurists at the Birkbeck College of the University of London on Saturday 21 September 2013. His presentation will be part of a conference on the topic of "Futurism, Spirituality and Faith".
Carl will emphasize the ongoing relevance of religion in modern life and how greater awareness of and accommodation for human religiosity will be essential for a successful transition to positive posthuman futures. Also presenting at the conference, association member Giulio Prisco will argue that future science may achieve all the promises and mental benefits of religion without being based on outmoded theories. Other panelists will present various points of view, including a defense of secular science in opposition to religion and an argument for the importance of being aware of religious trends.
