For Mr. Kollin and Mr. Dee:

Isn't it FUN to talk about religion! Let's hope you do it some more.
After all, it bears such a close relationship to cryonics. Perhaps
a successful suspension is only given by God, Allah, Yahweh, Jupiter,
Zeus, Jehovah, Brahma, Ahura-Mazda...so many friends to play with,
all of them gratified by the attention.

Or maybe they've all gotten together to make a special heaven for
atheists, to be called physical immortality. We'll never get any such
thing, of course, because even if we claim we don't we secretly believe
in at least one of all of those listed above (none of them like you
to believe in another...they're pretty jealous guys). 

Or does anyone out there believe cryonics has anything to do with
religion? We just don't think that many people doctors happily
declare dead are truly dead. If you want you can believe in one of
those listed, or all of them, or some of them, whatever you wish.
You can also form whatever opinions about them you wish, too. And
guess what: you can even ARGUE about them on Cryonet. If we end up
fixing the causes of death, whatever they be, then you can spend
the rest of your life arguing about Gods, the godless, Stalin, 
Hitler, whoever you want. What great fun that will be! An immortality
of theological argument!

		Best wishes and long long life for all,
