IMMORTALITY has been the regarded as mythology and science fiction for years but now human beings are close to defying death due to several major scientific breakthroughs which will give humans a plethora of choice on how to live forever by the year 2050, according to a top futurologist.

Dr Ian Pearson said human beings are very close to achieving immortality in a number of different ways, but only if you can make it to the year 2050. Anyone who dies before then could be part of the last generation of humans to die of old age.
Dr Pearson said: “By 2050, it will only really be for the rich and famous. “Most people on middle-class incomes and reasonable working-class incomes can probably afford this in the 2060s. So anyone 90 or under by 2060.
“If you were born sometime in 1970 onwards, that would make you 48 this year.
“So anybody under 50 has got a good chance of it, and anyone under 40 almost definitely will have access to this.”
There are several ways in which people can live forever, such as renewing body parts.
This could be done in several ways, including genetic engineering that prevents or reverses the ageing of cells.
People may be able to replace vital body organs with new parts.
Scientists around the world are currently working on creating human organs using 3D printers loaded with living cells which could make organ transplants a thing of the past.
Dr Pearson added: “There are quite a lot of people interested in living forever.
“There always has been, but the difference now is tech is improving so quickly, lots of people believe they can actually do it.
“No one wants to live forever at 95 years old, but if you could rejuvenate the body to 29 or 30, you might want to do that.”
Dr Pearson also thinks that with the advancements of androids, such as sex robots, people will be able to download their minds into a machine.
The futurologist said: “A long time before we get to fix our bodies and rejuvenate it every time we feel like it, we’ll be able to link our minds to the machine world so well, we’ll effectively be living in the cloud.
“The mind will basically be in the cloud, and be able to use any android that you feel like to inhabit the real world.
“The current state of sex dolls are starting to look quite human-like. Give them another 30 years of development and they’ll be extremely human-like.”
The scientist said people will be able to rent an android, like renting a car to go to see events in different corners of the planet.
He continued: “If you wanted to spend the evening in Australia, going to the Sydney opera house, you could use an android.”
But, he said people will have to wait until around “2045, 2050” before people will be able to create these strong brain-to-machine links and the cost will be very high initially.
People on poor incomes may even eventually be able to afford an android and it could even potentially be given on the NHS [National Health Service – British Obamacare].
He explained: “By 2060, people like you or I will be able to buy it, and by 2070 people in poor countries on modest incomes will be able to buy it.
“Everyone will have a chance to have immortality, a sort of

Note from Pastor Kevin Lea: The above way of thinking is the epitome of those seeking after the lust of the eyes/flesh and pride of life (1 John 2:16). Are they blind to how messed up this world is? Who wants to live forever in a place that is and always has been so completely corrupted by the sinfulness of man?
In Genesis Gen 11:6-7 God confused the languages of the united (sinful) people after the flood of Noah because otherwise man would use their unity and fallen condition to do evil again.
And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” NKJV
As a result, for thousands of years man has been prevented from unifying their efforts to do evil on a global scale. With the renaissance of global accord (because of technology erasing borders and language differences) man is trying to play god in many ways, including genetic manipulation (cloning, children with three genetic parents, this article, etc.) in order to undue the curse of sin, which is death.
Ecclesiastes teaches that man will never defeat death:
No one has power over the spirit to retain the spirit, and no one has power in the day of death. There is no release from that war, and wickedness will not deliver those who are given to it. Eccl 8:8 NKJV
Therefore, try though they may, the only way to eternal life remains the same: humble faith in the biblical Jesus. How? By confessing your sins to Him and receiving his gift of grace and mercy as you allow Him to be the Lord of your life. Instead of eternal life on this corrupted earth, Jesus gives us eternal life in the new heaven and earth where righteousness dwells. How awesome is that? Hope to see you there!
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself, and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man. [John 5:24-27] NKJV
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. [2 Peter 3:10-13] NKJV
