In his 18 July 2006 article, "Radical Religion", Jamais Cascio of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies reflects on the results of a USA Today poll of religious adherence in the USA. He observes that the percentage of persons identifying themselves with "No religion" is among the top few segments in each state. He extrapolates from there that these persons must represent non-theism, and suggests that our models of the future should be adjusted to account for higher percentages of non-theists than previously acknowledged.
Another common weakness among Transhumanism antagonists, particularly those that are religious, is that they overlook how their arguments apply to their own ideologies. In a recent article entitled "Listening to the Transhumanists", Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, casts Transhumanists as the most recent manifestation of an ancient and ongoing trend among humans to go astray after temptation to escape our finitude. He also remarks that it is strange for ideas once mostly associated with science fiction to be seriously considered among some scientists. There are at least two ironies here.
