Lincoln Cannon is not only a software engineer with degrees in philosophy and business but also the president of the Mormon Transhumanist Association.

In my first interview with him, we talked about the compatibility between Mormonism and Transhumanism. In this special edition of Singularity 1 on 1, we debate whether science and religion are mutually exclusive – as I believe, or complementary – as Cannon argues that they are.

So, check out our friendly discussion and judge for yourself but don’t be shy to let me know what you think.

As always you can listen to or download the audio file above or scroll down and watch the video interview in full. To show your support you can write a review on iTunesmake a direct donation, or become a patron on Patreon.
