Transhumanism is the next step in human evolution
Transhumanism is the next step in human evolution.
Human evolution is already not natural, so transhumanism being a non-natural evolutionary advancement will not be anything new.
Transhumanism may reduce our demands on the environment.
Transhumanism allows people to create a world that they want to live in, not limited by or reactive to the pre-setup environment they are born/placed in. People would then not be limited by nature (including predetermined capabilities), but rather their own imagination and location.
Transhumanism would make life easier.
Transhumanism could speed up human evolution, which provides multiple benefits.
This next step is inevitable, so we should proceed with a method to have control over the process.
Transhumanism helps to prevent
existential risk reduction
Transhumanism is the next step in evolution of wealthy humans. Poor humans will not benefit from it.
Transhumanism would be the end of evolution, as it would rely on design as opposed to natural selection of mutated traits.
Evolution does not have "steps", it has branches. Some people will become transhuman, but not all people. It is little different than saying humans are the only surviving hominids and ignoring apes.
Transhumanism comes at a cost (financial, societal, and other consequences) that is too difficult to or not be worth investing in.
Transhumanism might have unforeseen dangers, because it has never been accomplished on a mass scale.
People and cultures may be against change, and transhumanism is a large one.
Human interaction partially gets lost in transhumanism, where people are not interacting with "humans" anymore, but humans + something else.
Transhumanism has limits to competing with automation and may not be enough in the technological singularity.
