I just wanted to point out my favourite's of the "Best of 08" here Mr.Infidel.

They are 1)Debating Transhumanism
2)Against Death 3)Response's to pro-death arguement's 4)What is Nationalism?

First of all ...in the current era of the species...I think Nationalism is healthy..or I know it's healthy.

On the topic's of anti-aging, anti- death,artificial intelligence, Transhumanism..and related subject's...I found these subject's of importance. At this time I dont feel there is enough of this discussion in the mainstream. All of what you are talking about is going to be the "saviour" of the species, but this time "for real".. not some prophetic talk, a species to come that will trump any of the human species there ever was. And NO, I am not saying this because I am in my 50's,or am a sci-fi fan, which I am not. But I know this is the future of the species and much more to come. How do I know? That isnt important, nor do I have discussion's about it.Folk's are free to believe what ever they want...and die all they want to, or at least pretend that is what they want and think, simply because they know nothing else at this point.

I'll shut up now, thank you Sir...

BTW, one more thing, when the species does evolve to it's next stage,it is THEN that Nationalism wont be needed,or nuclear weapon's, or pretty much anything that we need now...period.
