Jacob's Dream by William Blake, 1805

Jacob’s Dream by William Blake, 1805

There is something taught in almost every secret society, most cults, and even in some so-called Christian churches. And that doctrine is that man may experience transformation and become a god. Is it possible that human beings may evolve to become gods?

Apotheosis is defined as the “elevation to divine status.” The word is a late Latin word from Greek apotheōsis, from apotheoun to deify, from apo- + theos god.

Transhumanism is a philosophy that seeks to enhance human beings physically, psychologically, and even spiritually (though not all transhumanists believe in God). From what I have read and understand about transhumanism, most of the people who adhere to a futurist vision of transhumanism are secularists, atheists, or at least, agnostic. So, what are they ultimately looking for? Are they seeking God, or to become gods? Or, are the goals they are striving to attain purely secular in nature?

Even though most of the most visible transhumanists appear to be secularists or atheists, they do seem to hold to a form of spirituality defined as an evolution in consciousness.

What they ultimately desire is to advance the human condition through the use of biological technology, and artificial intelligence. This will eventually lead to great advancements of human potential propelling humanity forward toward the attainment of intellectual and even physical immortality. Admittedly, some Transhumanists only desire to improve the human condition through the application of technology leading to better health, vitality, and increased longevity. In that case, these are noble goals, and it will advance the cause of science to make life better; but some Transhumanists desire more, they want immortality.

One of the main goals of some of the major Transhumanists philosophers is to develop a technological means to transfer human consciousness into another form of media, often referred to as mind uploading, mind copying, or mind transfer.


There is however a great danger here: Imagine a future Adolph Hitler or Joseph Stalin uploading their consciousness into an artificially constructed receptacle (body or computer environment), in order to perpetuate a living immortal  existence. It is easy to see that this could generate a type of  technologically advanced Übermensch  or Super-human, just as imagined by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.

Of course the great problem is that if mankind is able to develop a type of technological immortality, it will be an immortality hampered by a sinful nature. Let’s face a certain fact: Would you want to live forever with your sinful nature intact? What kind of immortality will that be?

In truth, that kind of immortality would be a hell on earth.

Of course there are various religions that teach methods and rituals for attaining apotheosis: Mormons teach that they will become gods and goddesses one day, and that through the act of fulfilling their obligations and performing Temple rituals, they will one day be transformed into gods and populate their own planet. This is called “Exaltation.” They believe that God was once a man and that by following the rules (rituals) of the planet he originated from he became the God of his own planet, which is Earth.

Some Eastern religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and others (such as Spiritism) teach reincarnation, a repeated process of life, death, and rebirth. After many life times of perfecting karma (works of the flesh that affect the future of the soul, whether good or bad), the soul is freed from the cycle and thereafter lives on in perpetual bliss for eternity.

It is the heart cry of broken humanity to realize a state of perfection or immortality, and various religions have created many works and rituals in an attempt to avoid and overcome the negative aspects of human nature. For many people it is a secret hope that the good in their life will outweigh the bad, thus allowing them to experience “heaven” or a blissful existence after the death of the mortal body.

But there are many people, especially some influential secularists and atheists, who want immortality here and now, and they are willing to spend millions of dollars to realize that goal. They are not really concerned with the concept of eternity per se,  because for them a spiritual eternity does not exist; the only eternity they hope for is immortality of the body here on Earth, hence the race to overcome the technological and biological hurdles faced by transhumanist science today.

The truth of the matter is that God will never allow human beings to experience an apotheosis, in fact, it is not possible. Technology will progress, and man may through technology, drugs, or spiritual effort, experience different levels or shades of consciousness, but humans will never be able to exchange humanity for divinity.

God is the only self-existing, self-sustaining being in the universe. 

  • Isaiah 45:5:  I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me…
  •  Isaiah 43:11: I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
  • Isaiah 43:10: Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

It doesn’t matter how much technology we create, humans will always be humans. If genetics does create a special class of enhanced human being,  that class of human will remain just as sinful as the rest of us. They may have a better body, or an improved mind. But the human condition as far as sin goes, will remain the same.

Romans 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God…

Ecclesiastes 7:20:  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

That is the danger of combining human pride with enhanced, genetically altered biology and technology; or, even an enhanced form of techno-spirituality. The capacity for human sinfulness may also greatly increase, and that may be what happened at the Tower of Babel.

Could transhumanism lead us to another Tower of Babel moment? The biblical text says “And the whole earth was of one language and one speech” (Gen. 11:1). In other words, their ingenuity and science were on the same page. And because of this they combined their knowledge of the heavens and past Earth history to build a Tower that would reach into the heavens.

It is plain to me that these people were not seeking to construct a tower out of brick that would reach into the cloudy heavens or space. No, they built a tower that they could use as a temple; it was a place of ritual, a gate or portal utilized to spiritually contact the pre-flood gods.

Babel means confusion in Hebrew, but it also carried another meaning in the Akkadian language: the Gate of God, or the Gateway to the Gods (bab–gate; ilu–god).

Technology may change over time; the Tower of Babel, the Gate of the gods, was meant to create a portal to facilitate contact with the ancient gods. The idea was that men could once again mingle with the gods (Fallen Ones) as had been done before the flood of Noah’s day.

Will the goals of the transhumanists allow them to gain immortality through genetics or enhanced biology combined with technology? And once humans advance through the gate of techno-evolution will they also open their enhanced minds, and will this new ability of expanded consciousness allow them to initiate contact with beings that they (in their delusion and desire for apotheosis) consider to be their equals—the ancient gods of Babylon?

Is Transhumanism a Gateway to the gods using modern technology? Once this gate is opened it may allow something they never thought of or considered: Technologically Enhanced Possession. Because once the human mind is enhanced it may open spiritual doors into another dimension and bring the human mind into a place that was never meant for humans.

If they want to expand human capabilities they may get more than they bargained for when the human mind is expanded and gains new abilities to cross dimensional boundaries. This may allow the transhumanists immortals to do something they never thought of, or, thought impossible; to open the Gate of the Gods and reach spiritually into the heavens, where it is possible to mingle with the ancient gods on alternative dimensional planes, and (in a deceptive way), to become gods, or immortals themselves.

The truth is however, although they may contact the gods (in reality fallen angels) they will never become gods themselves. It is all a deceptive illusion built on the pride of sinful man. In truth, it is just mimicking the dark self-deception of another being, the god of this world who said, “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isaiah 14:14).

Is the wound of mans mortality about to be healed through the transhumanist dream? Be careful what you wish for. A Faustian Bargain often comes with a very steep price.

In the book I also discuss what may happen to humans who allow their DNA to mix with alien DNA. Could this unnatural mixture cause humanity to lose the image of God for the image of the Beast? Something to consider isn’t it?

Thanks again,
