Transhumanism (CIU211)

Transhumanists are all about overcoming the limitations of human nature. Our human nature being our capabilities and our emotions, they try to defy these by using new and advanced technology. By using this technology they are trying to enhance our capabilities such as how smart we can be. We have seen this portrayed in movies for decades, but something always tends to go wrong. Is this why we are so scared of changing human nature?

Although I don’t believe that we should use technology to make us smarter, or to enhance our bodily functions, I’m not totally against the use of it for medical reasons. It seems just to me that someone should be able to use the technology that is readily available or the kinds of technology that will be more advance in the future to help them detect or even cure a type of cancer or even help a blind person see.
