34.8% of IEET poll responders selected “Cryonics and Resurrection” in a recent survey that inquired about life-after-death preferences. 27.7% selected, instead, the category, “Uploaded in a Non-Biological Medium,” and 24.1% chose “Either is Fine.”Nevertheless, every single one of these responders is going to die and not one of them will be resurrected in sexy genetically tweaked comic-book super model super hero bodies or in shiny immortal robot bodies or in angelic digital post-bodies in cyber-heaven or whatever nano-digi-cryo-3D Printer scenario happens to be preoccupying their fancy at the moment. In this, they share of course in the mortality without a prospect of resurrection of everybody else, including countless billions of other people of faith who dreamed and dream otherwise, and think they will go to fluffy cloud heaven or seventy two virgins in sensual paradise or your own personal planet or revenge fantasy judgment day or what have you.
Although I am a crusty atheist myself, I am happy to grant that this sort of thing is probably mostly comparatively harmless, or at least not inevitably devastating to those who indulge in it. I think this is true rather in the way a preference for Coke over Pepsi is also comparatively harmless though certainly not good for you whatever your taste may be. At any rate, it remains harmless so long as one doesn't become so obsessed or denialist about mortality through one's faithful fancies, whether conventional or futurological, that one becomes more death-dealing or dead in life before one dies than one otherwise would have done, which, I have to say, does sadly seem to happen sometimes.
