If you accept that God created us (in his own image, no less), and you
accept that God is omniscient, then you must accept that God knew full
well what he was doing when he created us with consciousness, curiosity,
and the ability to develop technology to assist us in our growth.
Therefore, the philosophy of transhuman development not only _doesn't_
defy evolution, but is, rather, part of our evolution, and is also part
of God's plan for us.

Put that in your Bible and smoke it!
