LECTURE: HOMO DEUS
Homo Deus: the final stage in human evolution and the death of religion?
With religiosity appearing to decline in the modern world, what might the future hold for theism? If faith dies out, will society be able to transform itself to fill the void? Exploring many significant matters (including genetic modification, artificial intelligence and immortality) the lecture will discuss the prospect of a modernised planet on which humanity has progressed to its final stage in evolution (the Homo Deus) and whether there is either necessity or room for the God of religion in this new world. Will one witness the Fall of God and the deification of humanity? Is it possible for Man to become God?
