I can easily see how this mistake could be made. Certainly
Extropianism concerns itself with the same issues that traditional
religions address; the role of the individual in society, ethics, the
nature of the universe, the pursuit of immortality.
Planet One's label in half correct. It falls apart in that
Extropians are antithetical to any organization except spontaneous
organization. Perhaps they should be contacted and informed that
Extropianism is a Religious Disorganization.
