This list is, to a certain extent about libertarianism. Not necessarily the politcal movement, but the ideas of personal freedom, spontaneous order and dynamic societies. Since you seem to reject most of the Extropian principles, I'm not sure why I'm even bothering to respond.

I agree that most of us Extropians would favor educating children about evolution. However, I don't think favoring oppresive governments fit in well with Extropian beliefs.

Actually, I could care less about Satanism. As for your ideas, I'm more interested in hearing you support them in light of Extropianism, or at least telling us why you're bothering to post extremely non-Extropian ideas on our list than I am in attacking them. As extropians most of us already realize the ideas you have posted are nonsense.
