    Can you tell us what transhumanism is? I have no opinion on it, because I've never heard the term before.

    Transhumanisim is the support of new science and technology to enhance the mind and body very simply.

    Doesn't sound like anything for "science" to have an opinion about then. Sounds more like it's that they have an opinion on science rather than vice versa.

    It's become a perverse sort of cult. Think eugenics. Some "former" members, which will remain nameless were pushing it here a couple of years ago.
