Ye Shall Be as Gods

E. Christian Brugger exposes those who "foresee the feasibility of redesigning the human condition, including such parameters as the inevitability of aging, limitations on human and artificial intellects, unchosen psychology, suffering, and our confinement to the planet earth" — An Introduction to Transhumanism. Apparently they didn't get too far in their reading of Scripture.

"Apparently they didn't get too far in their reading of Scripture."

No doubt. Science is the first bastion of the sorcerous.

Re: LTG,

C.S. Lewis would be the first to agree with you. In The Abolition of Man, he says that the of the four items named religion, magic, science, & technology, the truer analogy is between Science & Religion as man's attempt to conform himself to reality, and Technology & Magic as Man's attempt to conform reality to his desires.

It is interesting to note also, as Lewis and Peter Kreeft (when discussing Lewis & Walker Percy's Lost in the Cosmos) that the study of occult sorcery didn't reemerge in the Middle Ages but in the early Modern era. Technology predominated because it worked more often.

Witch hunts also "didn't reemerge in the Middle Ages but in the early Modern era," no matter what Dan Brown says.
