Their response was that the government would find away to make the person who figured out the biology to make us immortal would "disappear" applying that the government would kill the person.

This was their response to almost everything I brought up in the discussion. Rather it would be clean energy to space travel. The government would find a way to kill the people who thought up those ideas.

The reason why I brought this up in the forums is because this sounds like something that a crazy conspiracy theorist would say and I wanted to know if there was any factual proof that the government or any corporation would take the time to do something irrational like this?

Also. sorry if I posted in the wrong thread. I looked at the rest of the threads available and thought this would be the better one to post this topic in.

I'll err on the conspiracy theorist side as well. As a side note why do "They" always want to keep advanced technology away from the populace? What do "They" gain by crippling the people? Surely if you could reduced OHS costs to zero with immortal workers, the nefarious plans would get finished faster if nothing else...

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: So I have a friend who thinks this
Sorry if I been silent. I am just reading through all the comments. From the looks of it. There has been no links to support my friends and I will take all of the suggestions that have been offered.

I think the article that told me seven years was deleted because what I am seeing now is the 30+ years.

There is support for it, but it's usually a different country trying to keep technology out of their adversaries' hands. The preferred term is "focused foiling".

North Korea don't invade other countries under false pretext of it having WMD.


Obviously said countries aren't similar but calling them very opposites is I think wrong. Just look at the percentage and number of people imprisoned in USA. For me it signify some deep issues. Just like the "War on Drugs" or Guantanamo.

Very opposite of North Korea would be I imagine country with greatest freedom of press (Finland) or country being most free (Hong Kong*).

I think immortality would be really bad for the planet, but there's also no evidence coming close to suggesting that we're 7 years away from achieving it.

If say a biologist did find the secret to immortality, how would they be killed by the government (assuming they did in fact try it on themselves)?

If they can be killed, then quite simply put they're not immortal.

It's rank conspiracy-think. We are not even close to any such technology. Despite the ramblings of people like Ray Kurzweil and his Technological Immortality stuff. Ray certainly has not been disappeared.

When technical immortality is outlawed, only outlaws will have technological immortality.
