The Mormon Transhumanist Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit advocacy group dedicated to abundant flourishing through the compassionate use of science and technology. We seek to persuade secular people that religion and science aren’t mutually exclusive, and to persuade religious people that science and technology are essential aspects of the divine. We encourage both of these audiences to engage with the world more wholeheartedly.
We invite you to stay up-to-date with the latest posts and content from the Association, and support our mission to spread awareness of these ideas. Your support makes it possible to hold events and create more of the quality content you see here.
Before proceeding, we ask that all members support our Affirmation. This doesn’t necessarily mean you agree with every word, but that you feel you can support the general spirit of the Affirmation.
Mormon Transhumanist Affirmation
- We are disciples of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is to trust in, change toward, and fully immerse our bodies and minds in the role of Christ, to become compassionate creators as exemplified and invited by Jesus.
- We understand the Gospel to be compatible with and complementary to many religions and philosophies, particularly those that provoke strenuous pursuit of compassionate and creative exaltation.
- We seek the spiritual and physical exaltation of individuals and their anatomies, as well as communities and their environments, according to their wills, desires, and laws, to the extent they are not oppressive.
- We believe that scientific knowledge and technological power are among the means ordained of God to enable such exaltation, including realization of diverse prophetic visions of transfiguration, immortality, resurrection, renewal of this world, and the discovery and creation of worlds without end.
- We feel a duty to use science and technology according to wisdom and inspiration, to identify and prepare for risks and responsibilities associated with future advances, and to persuade others to do likewise.
- We practice our discipleship when we offer friendship, that all may be many in one; when we receive truth, let it come from whence it may; and when we send relief, consolation and healing, that raises each other together.
