Such adaptability and skill at seeming human, while not being truly so, calls up a

Concepts once purely fiction -- robots, cyborg parts, artificial intelligences -- are becoming part of everyday reality. Soon robots will be everywhere, performing surgery, exploring hazardous places, making rescues, fighting fires, handling heavy goods. After a decade or two, they will be as unremarkable as the computer screen is now in offices, airports or restaurants. Cyborgs will be less obvious. These additions to the human body are interior now, as rebuilt joints, elbows and hearts. Soon we will cross the line between repair and augmentation, probably first in sports medicine, then spreading to everyone who wants to make a body perform better, last longer, than it ordinarily could. Controversy will arise, but it will not stop the desire to live longer and be stronger than we are. Gregory Benford and Elisabeth Malartre's Beyond Human treats the landscape of human self-change and robotic development as poles of the same general phenomenon.

Digital collaboration is abundant in today’s world, but it is often problematic and does not provide an apt solution to the human need for comprehensive communication. Humans require more personal interactions beyond what can be achieved online. Returning to Interpersonal Dialogue and Understanding Human Communication in the Digital Age is a collection of innovative studies on the methods and applications of comparing online human interactions to face-to-face interactions. While highlighting topics including digital collaboration, social media, and privacy, this book is a vital reference source for public administrators, educators, businesses, academicians, and researchers seeking current research on the importance of non-digital communication between people.

"The author explores the meaning of folklore and its usefulness in education and psychotherapy. The book aims for deepening the awareness of our ultimate human concerns, the meaning of authenticity, and the urgent need for radical, long-term commitments. Throughout the book there is both the hidden and the overt implication that simply liking, appreciating or agreeing with insightful ideas and suggestions presented by anyone are absolutely worthless, or may even be counterproductive if the readers do not translate into changes and actions the ideas that are most meaninful to them."

EXPOSING Lies We Believe About God

For years, there has been uncertainty regarding Paul Young’s The Shack. Some have suspected heresy but have been unable to pin down exactly what Paul Young believed. James De Young, Th.D., who has known Paul Young for a couple decades, wrote Burning Down the Shack to expose Christians to the fact that Paul Young espoused universalism. Now “the cat is out of the bag.” In his newest book, Lies We Believe about God, Young blatantly confesses adherence to universal reconciliation, as well as twenty-seven other beliefs that are heretical. Here are some of Paul Young's unbiblical claims: · God is not in control of everything · God submits to human beings · God is a Christian · God is a sexual being, equally male and female · People do not need to get saved · Sin and hell do not separate people from God · The cross was man’s idea, not God’s · People have a second chance to believe after death · Everyone is a child of God · Universal reconciliation has been accomplished for all people · The God of evangelical faith tortured his child, Jesus, and is the perpetrator of evil Drawing upon his life-long teaching of the Bible and the original languages, James De Young appeals to the Bible to expose Paul Young as a heretic. In appendices, he also furnishes proof that Paul Young violates the Nicene Creed and the beliefs of the early church father Athanasius. Finally, we have a book written by one who is both personally and academically qualified to expose the true nature of Young’s writings. De Young will empower you to: · Discover the heresy in Young’s book, Lies We Believe About God · Expand your ability to answer the lies found in universal reconciliation · Enhance your capacity to discern between the truth and falsehood · Strengthen your confidence in the truth of the Bible

When you have a ghost as your friend, like Tom Golden does, you quickly learn the benefits. Grey Arthur supplies Tom with pens in class, grabs Tom's lunch when he forgets it, and generally helps him out as any best friend would. It's just that, in this case, no one else can see Grey. But right as Tom is settling into a comfortable routine, his life is once again turned on its ear when Grey Arthur starts a school for Invisible Friends in Tom's house. Ghosts are crowding into Tom's room and setting up camp in his attic with hopes of learning the art of the newest job in the ghost world. Meanwhile, other ghosts are mysteriously disappearing, and the repercussions are felt throughout the human world, even by Tom's parents. There are sinister forces at play, and it's up to Tom and Grey to figure out what's going on.
