  • If that was possible, the entire world would be more than overcrowded. Unless people move to Mars and drive spaceships. ^_^
  • 7-9-2017 You need to get in touch with reality. About 4500 years ago it was written "My soul shall not always strive with man, yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years." Since then, the number of people who have lived longer than 120 years can be counted on one hand. You say "people are living much longer", but that is only true of AVERAGE life span. The average is still only 70 or so.
  • Thus far man has only prolonged life to the early 100's and the quality of that life is not acceptable. I doubt if man could ever make a "man" immortal. The only one that can do that is the creator of life, God. And he does promise to do that (Psalm 37:29). That day will come and we will not have to live in partially robotic bodies when it does.
  • Christians already believe that death is a non-factor in life. Philippians 3:21 "Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself." With cyborgization, it deviates the human body with prosthetic body parts. The purpose in life as a cyborg would be meaningless. Sorry to burst your bubble, but this isn't Jason X.
  • The Church will be raptured before this happens. Revelation 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

  • Frankly: that's hard to imagine. How to make a human being - who is inevitably mortal - immortal? I suppose you can imagine "downloading" someone's brain to a artificial, robotic brain and then repairing the robotic body for a very, very long time...but eventually the Sun is going to go out, eventually the Universe is going to go out (if nothing else, the inevitable increase in entropy - that is: the energy that is concentrated in stars being emitted constantly until there is no more, until the energy is spread relatively evenly throughout the Universe). So: as far as technology and the Universe are concerned, based on current understanding, death is ALWAYS INEVITABLE, no matter what fantastic technological measures we can imagine that would DELAY - but DEFINITELY NOT eliminate - that inevitability. *** " people are living much longer lives" - well, to be precise: ON AVERAGE people are living much longer. The rare person lived a very long time even in the Middle Ages and earlier.
  • That's a false premise, is science always a relentless march of progress to benefit mankind? History says no. People also live longer lives when they live in remote areas away from other humans, because diseases spread in close proximity. I don't think science will ever discover a way for us to become immortal, there's no money in it. Christianity, and other forms of mysticism have always had opposition, doesn't stop people practicing it, because Christianity is for the spirit and the soul, and these kinds of beliefs have never ceased throughout history, the sphinx was an example of man overcoming the animal side of his nature. For Christians and mystics becoming the temple of God is the spirit of evolution or more accurately reunion, it's not in the learning but the unlearning, not in the adding but subtraction, the remembering something long forgotten.
