Subject: The true meaning of eternity! lol

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!

And don't forget gun(or the 22nd century equivalent) control!  Joe Dees and Mike
Lorrey gave the extropian list members a real sense of what eternity must be 
like with their ENDLESS arguments on the subject.  Anyone perusing the extropian
archives would fall out of their chair when they realize the lengths they both 
went to!  Mike kept winning the argument that the citizenry need the right to be
armed, but Joe kept on, and on, and on about it. ; )

When you take into account intelligence enhancement through genetic engineering,
machine/organic brain fusion, A.I. avatars, multi-mind webs, brainjack 
interfaces, etc., we will have some VERY interesting transhumanist "lists" down 
the road.  I imagine the immortal forms of Joe and Mike will simply take their 
gun control thread to the next level!! lol
