Celebrity technologist Elon Musk recently suggested that we may be living in a computer simulation. Of course this made technology news headlines around the world.

I've published version 3.3 of the New God Argument. The changes since version 3.2 are to simplify language in the propositions and to adjust the definitions accordingly. Most are minor. But one is particularly worth direct attention. I've combined "superintelligent posthumanity" into "superhumanity," reflecting provided definitions of "superintelligence" and "posthumanity." These changes will appear in an article I'm writing about Mormon Transhumanism, which will be part of a collection of academic works on Transhumanism to be published later this year or early next.
