I also dislike the idea of 'uploading' consciousness, and think that particular plan is ridiculous, though I imagine there are alternative plans I'd agree with more.
I've read about some christian (even Catholic) transhumanists, and frankly, I think transhumanists have vastly more in common with christians and catholics than they do with the current New Atheist crop.
My favorite transhumanist would be this guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolai...ovich_Fyodorov
