There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !
Transhumans in the future wanting to create new transhumans will have no reason to base their creations on a cryonicly frozen and revived Australopithecine like us. We will be hopelessly outdated, lacking the mental processing capacity and data transfer capacity that super-smart transhumans will take for granted in their interactions with each other, as well as being primitively flawed physically and genetically. Even if transhumans could fix all these things, it would be unethical because it would require more resources and risk than just growing a new transhuman in a petri dish.
The only reason they might want to revive us is as zoo specimens for study. In that case, they would have to place us into our native primitive environment in order to have good data. In some universes, this has already happened, and could be the case in ours now. Weorthe (talk) 01:12, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
Hey Weorthe, I just wanted to thank you for correcting the "it's" in a few of my edits before. It's one of the few things I happen to consistently get wrong grammar-wise, so I'm glad there's someone around smart enough to fix my screw-ups. You're a good editor, thanks man.
