Victoria News recently published an interesting article on Singularitarians in Canada whcih compared Singularitarianism with religion:

At first blush, Singularitarianism may seem like a religion and has even earned from critics the label “Rapture of the Nerds.” But Singularitarianism differs from religion in one crucial aspect: its belief doesn’t depend on a supernatural power influencing human affairs. Singularitarians rely only on the evidence and patterns scientists have tested and observed in the natural universe.

All said, however, the article does a good job at describing what the Technological Singularity is about and what it might mean for us.
