Ah, you fell right into my trap! Now for some exegsis on the Hegelian

Ah yes, but I am not denying the existence of concilatory modes of analysis,
I am denying their applicability in this case. It is sometimes suggested
that Christianity aufhebens or sublates Judaism (not usually by Jews mind
you) but does Darwin's _Origins_ aufheben or sublate Christianity? Answer:
no. Is the question of whether we ought to transhuman more like the former
or the latter? I am inclined to think more like the latter.

Yes, why is that?
