On The Subject of Cryonics:
The technology of cryonics seeks to cheat death by freezing people in the hope that future medical technology will revive them. Since its beginning in the 1960s, cryonics has not garnered much support from the general public or medical community. Even secular non-religious people, which should be more inclined to provide support due to their disbelief in an afterlife, have failed to show much interest in this potentially life-saving insurance policy. Should the non-religious seriously consider trading their wooden coffins for metal freezers or are they justified in continuing to give the cold shoulder to cryonics? Here we debate the issues.
