Mea Culpa to the Singularitarians, Transhumanoids, and Techno-Immortalists
It's been twenty years since I started sparring with Extropian transhumanoids online and a decade since I began to elaborate my formal critique of Superlative Futurology, and I am forced to confess, here at the end of history, in Techno-Heaven, in my prosthetically barnacled, forever young, model-hott comic book sooper-bod, next to the sexbot orgy pit and my gold-plated nano-poop pile, under the loving beneficent ministrations of the post-parental post-biological Robot God, that I was obviously so, so very wrong to doubt all the compelling arguments and well-substantiated predictions of the sooper-elite, sooper-brained, sooper-scientific White Guys of The Future in the many righteous sects of the futurological Robot Cult for so long. Now that we actually live in The Future you believed in so fervently for so long, the verdict quite simply is in, and as I am sure you luminously reasonable people would be the first to do if the results were otherwise, I publish hereby my change of mind and of heart to the world. Thanks be to the Robot God, you were right.
