Excellent point... since theists maintain that they've got a promise of eternal life from their supreme being, they have no justification for engaging extropy. IOW, they simply don't belong with extropians. They have their theistic doctrine of life extension, which involves the ritualized superstition of ceremony and tradition. Perhaps I can ignore them, but I can't ignore your insight into why we should ignore them. Thank you.
