A Broader Audience – CMI References Forcing Change

July 13, 2012

A long-time Forcing Change reader sent me a link to Creation Ministries International and their recently released video on transhumanism. Earlier today, while doing some work, I had the video playing in the background when my ears perked up. Hey, this sounds familiar! Turning to the video, I see that CMI was quoting from the 2010 Forcing Change report on transhumanism, and putting the citations on the screen.

What’s the significance of this? Forcing Change is a small operation that works on a shoe-string, so I was excited to see CMI using our material! They did what I hope many others will do – use our essays and articles as anchor-points to alert the Christian community about the changes taking place in society.

And that’s what Forcing Change was set up to be; A Christian-based informational resource that others will use in a way that causes people to think about the challenges we’re facing, and the opportunities this allows to inject truth into our culture.

Over the years, many other organizations, authors, and commentators have drawn upon Forcing Change materials. Yet, it always amazes me to see where and how our essays and reports are utilized.

Forcing Change members play a role in this. Besides bringing you cutting edge analysis, your membership in Forcing Change does two things: It helps keep our doors open, and therefore, it allows the research to be disseminated and used by others in a broader manner – impacting people far beyond our readership.

So if you’re a member – a partner in this important work – thank you! If you’re not yet a member, consider joining today. It’s an education, and an outreach.

The 15 minute CMI video is titled The Transhumanists are Coming!

      I agree that true Christians are not against science, and likewise hold that God created the world. However, I’m not sure why you feel sorry for myself or my future.

    This is a ridiculous argument they are purporting. Jesus did not heal people with machines.

    We have yet to have fully explored what our Creator designed us to do. Instead, we propose to change the design, remake ourselves IN OUR OWN IMAGE and in effect try to become God. Like I said, ridiculous.

    Reminds me of when I was in art school and so many ignorant art students wanted to leap straight into painting abstract paintings without ever going though the rigors of learning how to draw a decent picture. We are like kindergartners who are trying to take over the classroom. Doomed to fail if we continue down this foolish path.

    We need to learn what it is God created us for before we try to take control.

    And Darwinism is a THEORY, not a fact and not one shred of scientific evidence to back it up. A bunch of “hooey”. Or should I say HUBRIS.
