This is all cool stuff. Number 8 is a little freaky to me though.

Very cool,

Interestingly there is alot of science that has yet to butt heads with religion. IE: How many souls does a Chimera human have?

Chimera is when two or more fertilized eggs, which are traditionally thought of as distinct humans with their own soul, fuse together to create one distinct human.

At some point genetics technology is going to cause one of those historical moments where science and religion go toe to toe in a great dilemma and a new paradigm results in the end.

1.75 obviously.

I don't think it'll be that sudden. Religion (at last as it currently is) will likely just continue on in its current, steady decline.

How the F did James Cameron get on that list?

All great stuff, some of the headlines a bit hyped though.
