John, the Ankerbergs, and the Teletubbie-bashing Fallwell's will only whack at Ttranshumanism & Extropianism if it plays in Peoria. Why should they abandon their focus on Liberals, Secular Humanists, Satanism and abortion; if they merely get puzzled shrugs from their flock with the focus on Extropianism? Most will have trouble even spelling Extropianism
