World Council of Churches on emergent technologies

The pro-nanotechnology website of the Foresight Nanotech Institute has a brief review of the World Council of Churches report on the convergent/emergent technologies of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive sciences.

You can read their slant on the WCC document over at Nanodot: Nanotechnology News and Discussion » Blog Archive » Nanotechnology: World Council of Churches promotes UN approval required for all new technologies.

You can also download the WCC report from here: Science, Faith & New Technologies: Transforming Life — Volume I: Convergent Technologies. (PDF)

Update

There’s a complementary report Science, Faith & New Technologies: Transforming Life — Volume II: Genetics, Agriculture and Human Life. (PDF)
