In the Singularity movement, humans are so yesterday

Is Singularitism a religion, a scientific life-extension strategy, an old-boy's network or the wave of the future? Maybe all of the above, based on this feature about the Singularity University at work. It's nice to have such optimism in technology, but there's also something oddly off-putting about all this... It's the same spidey-sense tingle I get about Nietzschean supermanism and Scientology. Particularly at $15,000 for a nine-day course.
