I appreciate this point, but it would be false and harmful to call
Extropianism a religion in order to get the benefits of protection for
suspension. There *is* an organization that it legally a religion set up
partly for this reason -- The Society for Venturism. Venturists are
transhumanists and don't believe in a supernatural realm. Contact Dr.
Michael Perry at <> for more information.
