Summary

If we will not go extinct before becoming posthumans then, given assumptions consistent with contemporary science and technological trends, posthumans probably already exist, are more benevolent than us and created our world. If prehumans are probable then posthumans probably already exist. If posthumans probably increased faster in destructive than defensive capacity then posthumans probably are more benevolent than us. If posthumans probably create many worlds like those in their past then posthumans probably created our world. The only alternative is that we probably will go extinct before becoming posthumans.


Faith Assumption


[F1 assumption]
we will not go extinct before becoming posthumans


Angel Argument


[A1 from the great filter argument]
EITHER prehumans are improbable
OR we probably will go extinct before becoming posthumans
OR posthumans probably already exist

[A2 assumption]
prehumans are probable

[A3 from A1 and A2]
EITHER we probably will go extinct before becoming posthumans
OR posthumans probably already exist

[A4 from A3 and F1]
posthumans probably already exist


Benevolence Argument


[B1 assumption]
EITHER posthumans probably have not increased faster in destructive than defensive capacity
OR posthumans probably are more benevolent than us
OR we probably will go extinct before becoming posthumans

[B2 assumption]
posthumans probably have increased faster in destructive than defensive capacity

[B3 from B1 and B2]
EITHER posthumans probably are more benevolent than us
OR we probably will go extinct before becoming posthumans

[B4 from B3 and F1]
posthumans probably are more benevolent than us


Creation Argument


[C1 from the simulation argument]
EITHER we probably will go extinct before becoming posthumans
OR posthumans probably do not compute many worlds like those in their past
OR posthumans probably computed our world

[C2 generalization of C1]
EITHER we probably will go extinct before becoming posthumans
OR posthumans probably do not create many worlds like those in their past
OR posthumans probably created our world

[C3 assumption]
posthumans probably create many worlds like those in their past

[C4 from C2 and C3]
EITHER we probably will go extinct before becoming posthumans
OR posthumans probably created our world

[C5 from C4 and F1]
posthumans probably created our world


God Conclusion


[G1 from A4, B4 and C5]
posthumans probably already exist
AND posthumans probably are more benevolent than us
AND posthumans probably created our world
