Done With Death

TechNewsWorld takes a favorable look at The Scientific Conquest of Death, the first book of essays from the Immortality Institute. "A group of well-respected scientists and theorists take on the biological and philosophical arguments against radically extending the human life span. ... it is an entirely human response to try to fix problems that are harming people -- including death. Some 150,000 people die globally every day. ... it does seem rather odd that we aren't demanding a solution now. Perhaps one reason is that we live in a culture of death -- a culture that has convinced us that death is natural, good, and impossible to fight against, so we shouldn't even try. But we should try, and as this book shows, some very smart people are currently engaged in finding the solutions." And these folks need your support!
