Although I think that this article that is presenting the near future availability of immortality for humans (being transformed to cyborgs) is too optimistic, I do believe that this will eventually be the continuation (or destruction, if we are not careful enough) of human evolution. Personally, I really believe that scientists will not make major mistakes and they will use the technology advances in this direction only (or at least, in a large majority) for improving human life, and not the other way around, but it may take more time until getting there anyway.
Of course, I don’t know if this new type of changes will materialize as a good thing for life in general, as in this case evolution will not be based on genealogy and natural selection anymore. But hey, natural selection is already gone for humans for a long time now, i.e. since civilization existed: sick and weak individuals are protected (sometimes even over-protected) in our society, they can have kids and enjoy life just like healthy ones!
PS: I postulated about 10 years ago that this will happen at some point in the future, regardless of ethics, religion or other type of advice against it, because humans are innovative from their core (look through all our history!), and we cannot live much time without major changes in our lives, could we?
