    Haha no. I can assure you that there isn't.

    Any topic he attempts to tackle is usually approached with his typical fist-shaking, biased, infantile talking points. His little piggy brain should focus on less complex subjects.

    If you want to read about the pros and cons I'd suggest the later chapters of Ray Kurzweil's book.

    Transhumanism isnt solely about super soldiers, but the media and other pundits will focus on anything scary or edgy when it comes to this subject - for ratings.

    Rob is the sobering voice of reason in a sea of pothead conspiracy theorists.

    But I always think of that line from Akira 'Maybe we weren't meant to mess with that ultimate power'.

    Its the arrogance of humans that makes us believe we can control things like this when we have literally no idea what could happen.

    I obviously don't have the answers but its possible if they cure cancer, aids etc through experiments like this, theres no reason why those viruses couldn't mutate and become even stronger as they evolve. plus theres the possibility of a hills have eyes type scenario.

    you wouldn't have to worry about street level criminals - street level criminals are people who are TRYING to survive in a society whose foundation is crime -


    they've been replacing humans with machines for a long time now -

    washing machine
    dish washing machine
    fucking machine

    > Intelligent < Phones are taking away your memory - you don't have to remember much now - you appointments, your girls phone number ect....


    splicing and mixing man and animal/plant has always gone on - in the hands of those who want to rule the world further, it'll bring even more death and destruction to those who oppose it

    Our skills change as technology advances. We might not remember many phone numbers by heart but how many asswords do you know by heart? For instance, I have to login my work computer, bank account, online forums, e-mail, etc. That's a lot of usernames and passwords. So, the part of our brain that used to remember phone numbers and appointments are now replaced with remembering a lot of passwords and dates.
