Courage Assumption

The Courage Assumption (formerly known as the Faith Assumption and the Faith Position) is part of the New God Argument. It posits that humanity will not become extinct before evolving into superhumanity, which may be false. However, to the extent that we do not know it to be false, we may have practical or moral reasons to trust that we can make it true. In any case, the Faith Assumption is a common aspiration among secular advocates of technological evolution, such as Transhumanists, and may be consistent with the religious doctrine of theosis, also known as deification: the idea that humanity should become God.
