"I disagree with your statement that "Life without end is a meaningless and empty life." IF it could be extended without decay. IF the resources existed for all to benefit. THEN Life without end could be an infinite adventure. Dream on."

"Something like that. There is healthy living and there is life extension. I'm betting that life extension by manipulating basic processes such a telomere shorting will not necessarily prevent disease, even when combined with caloric…"

"I don't think we are ready for immortality as a species. I don't think we deserve it either. Look at the horrible things we do to each other and the rest of the biosphere. We are still have some growing to do. We need to learn how to…"

"Immortality is awesome. Imagine living into the distant future when interstellar travel is possible. It would be pretty cool to reach our nearest galactic neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy which is 2.9 million light years away."

"Organisms have already achieved lifetimes much much longer than our own. Certain jellyfish have the ability to live on indefinitely. Theoretically there is no reason a tree, for example, should even die. In fact the oldest one we know of is Pinus…"

""But immortality would be frightening, who chooses who gets to be immortal?" Well, it's not like anyone would be losing out. All who are against immortality (or just life expansion) need not undergo whatever processes that would…"

"Living to 100 in good health and sound mind would be great. 150, i think, would be the upper limit without some truely remarkable develoment. Immortallity, however, would be the distruction of the biosphere unless we develop a way to transport…"

"I am distrustful of immortality. Personally I don't think it would be as wonderful as it is made out to be. Right now I think humans probably do potentially top out at around 150 years, I could be argued as high as 200 perhaps. But…"

Matthew Hawley commented on Sarah Elle's blog post God but no Aliens?
"Looking at the sheer vastness of unimaginable proportions as to the numbers of star systems and galaxies, I find it hard to believe we are alone. I am as certain of this as much as I'm certain a theistic God doesn't exist. 1) We know life…"
