        Yes definitely!!!

        We're going to save the world right!? We are the ones
offering real "eternal salvation". (as opposed to some neither world
after life garbage.) Real Eternal life and blissful heaven is just
around corner. (sooner if we are all more worthy and make the right
choices and overcome the fear of technology). If you are not
baptized, um I mean signed up for cryonic preservation, you'll miss
out and end up in hell, um I mean in the grave and suffer information
theoretical death right!? For every $$ you fail to donate for
something like cancer research or cryonic research, it could mean yet
another one of our children will not make it to this heaven right?

        I am. But I couldn't drive to the state fair in Arizona, and
there aren't enough extropians in Colorado, let alone Northern Colora,
to man such a booth.

        I'm a very "evangelistic" extropian. Doing anything I can in
an attempt to "save the world" or at least as many people as possible.
I think we should be a much better organized, have missionaries, and
everything. Working on saving the world like this is tough. It's so
hard to watch yet another loved one needlessly be buried to rot in the
grave. I look forward to the day when we have more extropians to help
out with all this. We just haven't reached critical mass yet.
