James Moore sits down with Daniel Estulin, author of TransEvolution: The Coming Age of Human Deconstruction. Daniel argues that the race to better humankind is about to go to a new dimension as a result of a nanotechnological revolution, this enthralling read purports that the depth of progress and technological development is such that people in the very near future may no longer be fully human. TransEvolution discusses the transition from human to someone—or something—new and different and the increasing trend of implementing prosthetics, organ implants, bionic eyes, hearing aids, and other technological augmentations. Humans are capable of doing things they never imagined would be possible 20 years ago, and the rapid growth of this trend is nowhere near its end. But do the benefits of these advancements come with a price? Is humanity in danger because of this domination of science and technology?

He is coming to the Sondheim Center in Fairfield to tell the story of his family living in East Berlin during the Nazi regime of Hitler Germany and throughout the turbulent years of European history of WWII and Communism.
Michael’s story is an inspiring account of overcoming hardships, believing in the impossible, rising from trial to triumph. But it is also a challenge to many in our western culture not to take our freedom for granted, not to let our faith grow superficial and light, not to give in to indifference and complacency. As America faces times of uncertainty today, he will challenge us to build our lives on a foundation that will last.
