Are there any Catholic theologians keeping up with this stuff? A Church that thinks in centuries had better acquire what St. Thomas calls “agility” to deal with these swift changes (note that I do not necessarily call it “swift progress”). We don’t know if these new technologies are progress till we see which direction they are taken by the humans who use them: toward or away from the dignity of the human person. The great efficiency achieved in death camp technology was a swift change in the 40s. It was not progress.
