Do you think we'll see the end of the Christian, Catholic, and Muslim faiths in our lifetime?

I think its possible but would take some time to figure out, like 20 years minimum 80 maximum maybe.

I share the same opinion; we all know what happened to stem cell research. Same thing might happen to trying to extend longevity if something "threatens" to make significant progress (because then it's "threatening" religious constructs...)

These are the most common time spans used for the perfection of many currently being researched super technologies. I wonder why? Probably just me not giving a damn about the technical specifics of how statistics work because screw it.

i know they can already in mice restore thei rlivers ability to produce vitamin c and they can run for hours now, they can have sex more often, they live alot longer, and stuff like that. in humans itd also probably increase intelliugence because vitamin c being an antioxidant itd prolly limit eye and brain and lung damage, which usually get alot of free radical damage. and for humans the process is different or more complicated or something, and they would have to trial on monkies first prolly, or get it aproved through the fda and stuff which coudl take a few years though it sounds liek ti has no side effects, only problem is restoring the gene if they accidently restore a bad gene or somehting is the only way it could go wrong. And so after humans get that we could live longer enough to end up becoming biologically immortal, if the earth doesnt get ******** over by then.

Too bad I don't know the math to just lock myself in a room for 10 years and figure things out with. You would get some complete insanity yet sheer brilliance I freaking swear it. Not that anyone ever just believes the words of a man with a bit of will and decided to just teach someone like me all kinds of crap just to see what I will do with it though that sounds like a rather perfect plan to me and i am now way off topic.

Our bodies weren't just designed to live a certain length of time, they were designed NOT to live beyond it.

I don't really think we will find a way to make humans immortal without changing our genetics, which may not be possible on this scale in the first place.

Or with nanobots making microrepairs and whatnot, that's always an option.

id rather have my dna changed when that s**t could malfunction or whatnot. decay in our bodies where they shouldnt and stuff, and they wouldnt help with the brain at all because of the blood brain barrier.

DNA has an error copy rate much higher than that of the potential of nanobots, which could be perfect.

That's why we age and get mutations in the first place.
