I have 16 GB in my mac mini and i dont see a future of me using it all.
This statement is a bit reminiscent of my fellow nerdy friends when I was growing up who could not fathom filling a 100 megabyte harddrive.
You think someone is trying to impose death on you?
Indirectly. I'm seeing several people arguing to let nature take it's course. I'm seeing people argue against transhumanist goals.
Do you really believe in the possibility that 1) there will be a transhumanist "solution" in your lifetime and 2) that you are going to be able to afford it?
No. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.
Is it ethically justifiable to permanently subject wild animals to such conditions?
Yes. As restored species they would be protected by man and then have a shot at continued existence in the event humans die off or evolve passed the necessity for a biosphere.
but it also strikes me as arguably sounding like animal cruelty. I'd suggest that the scientific discoveries we might make by doing this may be heavily outweighed by the ethical considerations involved.
Your logic seems to be that it's unethical to bring them into a world that they can't survive in. But they all endured the waxing and waning of ice ages before that. The current thinking is that either humans or some sudden climate catastrophe caused the Holocene megafaunal extinctions, and not an inability to adapt to post ice age climate conditions. The only thing that seems to be preventing most of these species from thriving today is humans themselves.
'evolution facists' (facist as in trying to control other people's thoughts)
Eh? Teaching evolution in a *science* class is now controlling other people's thoughts? The whole reason this is an issue is because hardcore theists want to prevent it from being taught because they think it conflicts with one cultures interpretation of a creation story. Is that not attempting to control people's thoughts?
soon we will see signs posting that say something like " no filming, and no recording devices ".
Which means, no cell phones. No bar owner would dare post that.
