Going through CNN-News web site today, I found something rather
interesting. Two discoveries this year (the discovery of planets outside
our solar system and the finding of what may have been primitive life on
Mars) this week, NASA scientists, religious thinkers, and the vice
president all sat down in Washington to talk about the future of space
exploration--and the spiritual implications of life on other planets. If
the religious community and people in general are shaken by these two
findings, what will happen when uploading starts to occur? Or when the
line between man and machine starts to get blurry?
