Yes, I wholeheartedly endorse cryonics as a concept. When I first read about it as a kid I thought it was pretty exciting.
No, I can't endorse cryonics as a practice, from what I've read and experienced. The providers need to be much more honest and open in their dealings.
I don't think the level of excellence should be any less than a living person receives, given the costs and the promises.
People like Melody have stated true professionals could perform these preservations at the same cost as the untrained people performing them now.
I'm not sure a layman that has performed a complicated medical procedure a number of times can really be called an "expert", given that the not even qualified to know if they're doing it right...
Going at it with the attitude of, "oh, it doesn't matter if we mess it up, because science in the future will be able to correct it all" is the proper approach.
Those are just a few of the things that make it feel like a scam more than an afterlife.
No, I won't sign up myself...
And honestly, my endorsement one way or another is pretty meaningless.
