Response to Intellectual Dishonesty
I did assume that since you were presenting all those statements about how people think cryonics is a scam etc. that you must believe them yourself. If I assumed incorrectly, I apologize.
Cryonics though is only a scam to the extent that people make it so, by not looking closely at what is presented by the various orgs. It is all there in writing. For example, Alcor's contract clearly stipulates that bodies are donated for research, no guarantees are made about resuscitation or anything else, best efforts only on quality of standby and stabilization, etc. If people don't read the contract, it's their fault they have self-scammed, by buying into something they did not closely examine to see if it meets their expectations. And I'm sure the "state" under certain philosophies of politics will be glad to do these people's thinking for them and "protect" them from bad decisions by imposing regulations that may or may not indeed be the best way for cryonics to be done.
Have a great day,
