  1. Transhumanism in really bullshit. Normally when you something in its place its there.This and this gonna change your life pla pla. When try something at computer things jump up and down. Then put some their technology in you body and things go wrong and nobody knows whose fault.

  2. This isn't a proposal, it's a veiled threat, and an obvious one at that. What about those who don't want to play God and upload their conciousness into a hivemind? You think they'll award us that option?

    No, they will kill us just as the Bible foretold. Repent, seek Jesus that is our only path to salvation.

  3. When governments,entertainment industries and social sites are feverishly working to fry everyones' brain why would anyone think we're gonna become much smarter.The Master Plan is exactly the opposite and we're half way,if not more there,after all,if the tv show:"I can hear your voice" is supposedly a world sensation then it means most of the worlds populations' brain is DEAD.

  4. Transhumanism IS NOT SMARTER HUMANS BUT ANIMALS THAT ARE LIKE MACHINES AND AS STUPID AS MACHINES!! Just to think that a machine could be better than what is made by a Life IS STUPID AS A MACHINR AND THAT IS TRANS HUMANISM. TE ONE DOING THIS VIDEO IS A TRANSHUMAN. NOT HUMAN NOT ANIMAL BUT AN STUPID MACHIN NOT ABLE TO THINK WITHOUT A PROGRAMMER!!!! HAHAHA

  5. Evolution its lie, which produced with other lie psychiatry similiar eugenism become To be transhumanism, In which lead demonic murder of these People Who does not take smart Mark, mobile In They skin because bible alert that after They had been under skin microshipped, God send plague, which does unbearable sores of these Who have a Mark of beast.
    That spirit are In corona vaccine, nanos, potassium chloride (used In cort order To murder criminal)
    Rna with code, which make you be GPS contac with mobile network,
    And it does not protect To get corona, And its spirit of anticrist.
    Which make People demonic murederer.
    All theorys, whther They are overvise liar Evolution+psychiatry=eugenism 1 which was mass murder.
    And now evolution+psychiatry are entering a second mass murder, all Who does not worship a deatly techonogy Will be murdered,
    Like In totalitarian communist murder a anticommunist.
    All theorys are liar done by overvise narsist. And all theorys Like In this wideo Will lead totalitarism And totalitarim start war toward those Who does not accept you totalitarian mess of human health with eugenism 2, which are transhumanism, because eugenism 1 we In 1940 In by gaz camps. And trans humanism Will murder much greter number thän 1940.

    Wars Come from reprasentative parlamentarism systems, where 1-3 power person deside war, Whos son are not In front line, because power are consentrated In small number of People In reprasentative parlamentarism.
    Which are – dicatators, – mafios, And caracters only walue of power, so thats are reason on war, reprasentative parlamentarism.

    Nation vote (switserland) newer had war because moms does not wote They sons To foods of the gun To front line.

    So only way stop war its move a Nation vote systems.
    Because True history In reprasentative parlamentarismi had start wars, because They themself are not on front line In food of gun.

    I am person In faraway land, and if my country start force People To transhumanism, I hope ivasion of russia, because then my home land its no longer a country value of indebendence.

    Be real, all theorys become to be totalitarian,
    Whther its psychiatry+eugenism overvise liar which lead hologoust Like
    marxist communism, To those Who oppose it.

    So trans humanism its planning To kill you Child with They overvice one eye totalitarim.

  6. GOD WILL NOT ALLOW THIS.
    THE BOOK OF REVELATION WILL BE STARTING VERY, VERY QUICKLY.

    ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR OWN, PERSONAL SAVIOR BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE….
    TIME. IS. EXCEEDINGLY. SHORT ~~

  7. This idea sound good but in the end is to érase humanity as image of God, we are also spirutual being but with this ways we will be become just materia . be careful to follow this ways

  8. Science is the catalyst between man and God. Man creates God. Man creates science. Science destroys God. Science crowns man as God and then science takes the crown for itself and destroys man.

  9. Anybody ever seen the movie I am mother? It’s the end of the human race we are a robot is running the show I don’t doubt there are people like the trans humanist dreaming to make this happen

  10. I doubt this will be a sudden change. Like the evolution of homo sapiens, we are gradually moving towards a posthuman reality. Still, this is an evolution that will doubtlessly occur faster than our biological one.
    We have already started! Most people rely on digital means to organize their lives, communicate and find fulfillment. Our situation is already radically different from how it was a mere hundred years ago. If you have a smartphone or regularly use a computer, you are already offloading parts of your thinking onto technology. We are already cyborgs.

  11. Smartness is irrelevant.

    Do you have accsess to the less and less becoming nature, all the different plants, green, and trees? Do you see outside the wonder called life? All the insects, the animals in different sizes? Or leastways do you ever owned a pet?

    Then you MUST know that smartness is irrelevant!

    Of course at some point smartness is necessary. But life already completes it in his different lifeforms and species!

    So what mission, duty, task falls to humankind, as the leading dominant species on this uniqe life hosting planet? As a species above the nature?

    To find the answer/solution to this, just type in YouTube search "resource based economy"! ♥️🗺️🖖🐇

  12. Any woman who employs manmade bio-modification for the purposes of birth control is not a biological female but trans-human. They are already amongst us.
