Jottings on science, religion, technology, pop culture and faith from the Antipodes.

Science, Technology & Religion, Transhumanism

God, Persons and Machines

A while back Brian Edgar, Director of Public Theology for the Australian Evangelical Alliance, wrote a good summary paper on some of the theological issues arising from transhumanism and the notion of the cyborg. It’s written in reasonably accessible language (one doesn’t need to be a theological or technological expert) and was originally presented at a seminar on ‘Humans and Machines’ at The Centre for Apologetic Scholarship and Education, New College UNSW in November 2004.

I picked up a copy from the ISCAST (Institute for the Study of Christianity in an Age of Science and Technology) web site – ISCAST – God, Persons and Machines: Theological Reflections. It’s also available, along with others public theology papers, from Edgar’s web page.
