Subject: Re:  cryonics #235 - Proposal for Cheap Freeze

Religion requires faith in the supernatural, instead of reason.
Advocating cryonics requires only knowledge of the laws of 
physics, and an understanding of what will be probable with nanotech.
The distinction between faith and reason is critical.
Alcor never asks anyone to take anything on faith.
Religions do that, while requiring that you shortcircuit your
mind, by suspending reason, while you are alive.
Then they finish the job, by advocating that you destroy the 
information in your brain (when you die) in the name of a higher power.
Cryonics is not a religion!
