“How is technology disrupting faith?” – Kimberly Lannear, Scott Hawley, Lee Camp, Ben Howard at the first annual Christian Transhumanist Conference.
Join us for the next Christian Transhumanist Conference on October 19, 2019 in Nashville, TN!
At the first annual Christian Transhumanist Conference, held August 25, 2018 at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN, speakers addressed the theme of “Faith, Technology & the Future”, with particular attention to topics at the intersection of technology, spirituality, science and religion. Members, friends and critics of the association have many views. This is one of them. It is not necessarily shared by others.
