2102 My religious affiliation is a non-denominational Christian. One who believes there is a God, whose Son, Jesus, died on the cross in order that our sins can be forgiven, and believe in the Holy Ghost/Spirit. Religion is not supposed to be divided by brands. I do believe that a person in a comatose condition should not be considered in a state of death and their life supports should not be removed by family or a doctor's opinion or because of the expense. Since the mental inadequacy of people's analytical logic has become so easily manipulated by fear, lies, and misplaced superiority, it is best that this world not be taken over by those who still feel inferior to tell the truth because of their insecurities. This world as we know it, will not get better, nor their life preserved, by secretively using human beings for guinea pigs, continual dosing addictive ingredients in our food supply, our children's outdated, non-necessary vaccinations supplied with mercury and given to those less fortunate to home school their kids, piting races against each other, and the constant removal of the word "G-O-D" (which is NOT a religion) to instill their own motives in their gang--The New World Order. Research this knowledge before you decide to preserve the mentality that brainwashed people into believing AIDS/ HIV came from Africa and downplayed the fact that 49% of America's white population has it (stats hidden from the media to push caucasians into a scare mode against Black Americans) and make it very hard to find on the internet, unless you "exhume" its burial.) 2007-09-03 11:23:43
2104 I think that to extend life you should focus more on the genes that cause aging than freezing people because if a person were to just wake up in say 100 years than I m sure they will have trouble adapting to life so far in the future. But if people could live for an incresed period of time than they could adapt to what is coming up. Also think of the scientific break throughs that we would have if our scientists had hundreds of years to prove their theorys and do their research. 2007-09-04 15:03:13
2108 I am interested in the movements of cryonics.can you reach me and feed me with more information. 2007-09-05 18:11:30
2111 Ben, I believe I remember you from your cr participation some years back. I am wary of cryonics, cryogenics, etc... I've seen to data (that I can grasp, anyway) that do more than open my mind a little. Kurtzweil,s book, a vast departure from his first on diet, did not do much to either interest me or entertain me, unless you consider disappointment to be entertainment. I gather you're doing well, and wish you all the best. Ed Sullivan. 2007-09-08 13:20:02
2124 Some of the questions are improperly asked. (9) Does life extension endanger society because of the threat of overpopulation? Depends on the country...clearly emerging market overpopulation is a problem today, however, developed countries have seemed to balance population through birth control and education. (10) Does life extension harm society by slowing the elimination of outdated ideas? what does this mean (for example...not clear) 2007-09-12 13:15:33
2131 LEF customer for many years ... 2007-09-16 23:47:13
2133 it is good 2007-09-17 02:29:01
2142 The average life span, as mentioned in the scriptures is 70 years or so, but this is only an average. Age is a mental state if the body is healthy and given a healthy life no restrictions should apply because of age, in fact the reverse should be true because of the experience factor. Couldn't understand question 12, I'm not sure that any age is sinful but if you mean at which age a person can become responsible for sin or wrongdoing I believe it's probably in the region of 10 in most western countries. Good survey though. 2007-09-18 23:46:03
2143 Mountain weather (correct spelling?), a bug that can be frozen and thawed out alive, possibly useful for cryonics? 2007-09-19 06:52:24
2156 I am fascinated by life extension. If the disease of aging is cured or mitigated in my lifetime, I'll be sure to take advantage. I might consider cryonics when I'm old if the technology has been perfected. 2007-09-25 22:45:30
2158 You are ignoring the soul: your thoughts, emotions, and decisions compose the soul, which leaves the body upon death. The physical body is animated by the soul. When the soul is gone, there is no person there to animate the body. The best you could do as far as re-animating a dead body would be to obtain a body on life-support: remove the life-support, death again. It seems astonishing to me that you think our physical being is our total being. The physical realm is quite different than the psychological realm. 2007-09-26 08:40:05
2161 this is ridiculous. 2007-09-27 09:30:08
2167 Religious affliliation should have none option or no organized affiliation option 2007-10-01 11:19:02
2181 Only God can raise the dead. 2007-10-07 12:23:34
2185 Cryonics sounds like something for (very rich) people who consider themselves to be so important that they deserve to be essentially immortal if future technology provides the way in the future, in my opinion it has nothing to do with the scientific basis of healthy lifespan extension or ageing research. 2007-10-09 09:43:05
2191 Cryonics is a waste of resource and misses the point. 2007-10-11 08:12:48
2217 I personally belive that I will be able to upload my mind into a computer system before it is possible to successfully revive gryogenically maintained persons. Of course I would not try it unless I could either download myself back into my body or at the very least an upgradable synthetic vessel with superior sensory and processing capabilities. Although if cryonics was a reality I'd do it _just_ to experience question 22. That would be amazing! :-) 2007-10-18 13:44:43
2218 I'll die when I die, and don't desire being preverved by a machine. 2007-10-18 17:35:27
2228 I would be interested in cryogenics if I felt it was relevant to my age group. I believe I will live to see greatly increased lifespans. I know I am taking a risk that I might die a tragic and premature death but that currently is not part of my anti-death strategy. 2007-10-25 20:59:54
2242 lifw extension is posible by technics different than cryogenics right now. 2007-10-29 21:13:58
