Google director's push for computers inside human brains is 'anti-christ,' 'human rights abuse,' theologians explain
The Christian Post online
Dennis Sullivan, a medical doctor and director of the Center for Bioethics at Cedarville University, a Baptist school in Ohio, agreed and called Kurzweil's comments a "slap in the face of our Savior."
Sullivan told CP that although he has never met Kurzweil he has followed his work for years, and he speculates that the Google director takes "maybe 50 to 75" supplements per day.

Plan to put computers inside human brains a 'slap in face of God,' horrified theologians say
Christian Today online
Dennis Sullivan, a medical doctor and director of the Center for Bioethics at Cedarville University, a Baptist school in Ohio, agrees with Voshell, saying that Kurzwell's envisioned "singularity" would be a "slap in the face of our Saviour."
"Theologically, I always thought that was a slap in the face to God who said that 'This is very good' in Genesis 1 after creating man. And they're saying 'Not so good, and in fact we can do better.' I find that very, very arrogant," Sullivan said...
Chimeras: An ethical crisis crying out for comment
The Christian Medical Association argues that while some research involving human and animal cells may be beneficial and/or ethical, it can go too far in merging the two species together (see CMDA statement). Dr. Dennis Sullivan, a spokesman for the Association who also directs the Center for Bioethics at Cedarville University, spoke with OneNewsNow.
"[Taking into account] the whole idea of the image of God instilled in man at creation, the idea of crossing the species barrier [denies] a unique human nature," he states. "Christians believe that human beings are uniquely gifted by God. We're the only ones created by God with his image."...
The new push to legalize physician assisted suicide is a bad idea. It violates the Hippocratic tradition, dating back 2400 years. It impairs the trust relationship between doctor and patients, and would detract from modern efforts to improve palliative care and hospice. Finally, it is contrary to clear principles from the God's Word.
Human nature is at the core of human ethics and morality. Much of Christian scholarship has defended the Conception View of personhood, the idea that human beings have intrinsic value, beginning at conception. However, the modern era of reproductive technologies has led to an explosion of new scientific insights into human embryology, without a matching increase in our metaphysical and moral understandings...
A three-dimensional simulation using the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method is being used to determine transmission through FinFETs. A waveform representing a particle is analyzed before and after it goes through the channel using a three-dimensional spatial sine transform to produce functions of energy. The ratio of these two functions is used to calculate transmission. From the transmission, the quantum conductance of the channel can be calculated.
