Give Me That Silicon Time Religion.

Via Pharyngula here's an interesting Newsweek piece on tech guru and Singularity promoter Ray Kurzweil, written by Daniel Lyons. Interestingly Lyons has actually written a critical piece about Kurzweil and his beliefs we'll soon be able to live forever due to the creation of nanotech and superduper computers. Coverage of Kurzweil often tends to be lacking in such a perspective. Personally I find Kurzweil's attitudes towards the ideas he esposes seem awfully close to being a religious belief, only with supertech replacing God.
