Religion is a controversial topic among transhumanists. Although the majority identify as atheists and agnostics, a substantial minority find transhumanism to be complementary with or even inherent in their spiritual or religious views. Of course, this results in friction, which in turn generates both some traction of contructive debate and some heat of wasteful hostility.
A friend directed me to this video that shows the results of pointing the Hubble telescope at an apprently empty spot in the night sky.
Whether you're a traditional theist or not, perhaps you feel, as I feel, something beckoning us to a future in those stars. Maybe it's a truth, maybe a moral imperative, but in the least it's an esthetic and an associated will. "The heavens, they are many, and they cannot be numbered unto man; but they are numbered unto me, for they are mine. And as one earth shall pass away, and the heavens thereof even so shall another come; and there is no end to my works, neither to my words. For behold, this is my work and my glory -- to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." (The Pearl of Great Price, Moses 1: 37-39)
