With increasing advancements in health and biotechnology, many don't stop to question the ethics surrounding these new technologies. Dr. Matthew Eppinette of TEDS and the Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity helps unpack the topic of bioethics and how the Bible can guide pastors when they're faced with these ethical challenges.
In this session, Dr. Eppinette showcases the challenges involved with robotics and artificial intelligence. As robots, cyborgs and artificial intelligence become more sophisticated and complex, how should the Church respond? He discusses "transhumanism," the idea that humans haven't reached the end of their development and are on the cusp of a radical new transitionary phase into a new species.
